Matt Hegarty will be transferring from Notre Dame for his 5th year after the coaching staff asked him to change positions this off-season.
To have 11 players we had to take a flyer at quarterback. Wiser men would wait and see, but occasionally, the job description of a fool is to rush in. Despite what is offered below, Everett Golson is evocative of what Churchill said about Russia (“A riddle wrapped inside a mystery shrouded in an enigma.”) […]
Brian Kelly lost his best two recruiters this off-season, but when all of the dust settled he put together possibly the best staff he’s ever had at Notre Dame.
A debate over who should be the starting quarterback at Notre Dame seems to be becoming a spring tradition under the Brian Kelly era, and Irish fans have already begun to chime in their two cents with spring practice set to start following St. Patrick’s Day. And Irish fans should have enthusiasm heading into 2015 […]
Watching him from the sideline, Notre Dame quarterback Malik Zaire seemingly was a picture of patience and understanding – a true student of the game. From the inside though, the quarterback from Kettering, Ohio, tells a different story. A story that would include angst, lack of maturity, preparedness, and mental engagement. It’s not a story […]
Lost in the sea of injuries and big plays surrendered by the Notre Dame defense in the second half of the season, was the lack of pass rush from the Irish defense. The leading sacker for Notre Dame a year ago, Romeo Okwara, brought down opposing quarterbacks just four times making finding a pass rush […]
Former Heisman Trophy winner and Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston swung by Ann Arbor, MI, to visit Wolverines head coach Jim Harbaugh for some last minute, pre-NFL Combine advice. Winston had a lot to say about his visit to Michigan’s campus, but the NFL Combine wasn’t at the top of his list of discussion points. […]
We take a pre-Spring Practice look at the putative defensive starters. This may well change during Spring practice or in the Fall. The middle linebacker situation remains fluid, but suddently there are options, arguably including Nyles Morgan, Joe Schmidt, Jarrett Grace, Tevon Coney and even Michael Deeb. If the names below seem familiar it is […]
Notre Dame officially announced the dates for both the start of Spring Football 2015 and the 2015 Notre Dame Blue – Gold Game this week.
He checks in at 6’4” 215lbs, and is a menacing figure to look at on the field. It’s not uncommon for him to tower above opposing defenders by two to three inches, if not more, and he is in the process of learning how to utilize that height to his advantage. The son of NBA […]
It’s different this time, with no Big Ten teams on the schedule. There are six ACC teams on the schedule. The Irish departure from the Big Ten is unequivocal. The 2015 Notre Dame schedule isn’t your father’s Irish schedule.
To understand the extent and the spacing of Notre Dame’s current depth, let’s jump past the 2015 season and go right to the Spring of 2016, some 14 months from now.
The Notre Dame football team has another potential two-sport star on its hands after announcing on Friday that wide receiver Torii hunter, Jr will be playing baseball for the Fighting Irish this spring.
Notre Dame wasn’t able to find the 3rd safety that they wanted in the class of 2015 as Signing Day came and past, but just two weeks later the Irish landed Cal 5th year senior transfer Avery Sebastian to bolster a secondary in desperate need of experience at the safety. Sebastian announced his decision to […]
