Wake Up the Echoes: 2013 Kick-Off Edition

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh Football.  It feels like it’s been a life time since we last got to watch the Irish and two lifetimes since we got to watch the Irish and even longer since we’ve gotten to see Notre Dame throw punches instead of take them. At long last though, the 2013 season is upon. The off-season [...]

Wake Up the Echoes - I Still Hate David Gordon Edition

It’s been 19 years since Notre Dame was last 9-0 to start a season.  That means it’s also been 19 years since Boston College kicker David Gordon’s kick sailed through the uprights at Notre Dame Stadium to ruin Notre Dame’s perfect season and crush the dreams of an 11 year old who had fallen in [...]

Wake Up the Echoes: No Letdown Here Edition

The last time Notre Dame  was a double digit underdog on the road to a lower ranked team before last Saturday, they went into their opponent’s house and took care of business leaving no doubt who the better team was to improve to 8-0 on the season only to travel back to South Bend the [...]

Wake Up the Echoes: Catholics vs. Convicts Edition

For better or worse, the Notre Dame – Miami series will always be referred to by this now infamous moniker from the late 80′s and despite the two schools not being quite what they were during that epic showdown in the fall of ’88, this weekend’s game has fans on both sides of the field [...]

Wake Up the Echoes: Manti Te'o For Heisman Edition

Notre Dame is on the bye this week and without an opponent to get hyped up for, I decided what better way to dedicate the weekly Wake Up the Echoes post than with a little Heisman hype for Notre Dame’s star linebacker Manti Te’o fresh off being placed on the Sports Illustrated cover this week [...]

Wake Up the Echoes - Redemption Edition

Notre Dame didn’t open its season they way they, or any of us fans, had hoped by dropping an ugly game to South Florida last week, but last is last week.  In about 36 hours Notre Dame will march into the Big House for the first night game in the stadium’s history looking to get [...]
