The Irish Blogger Gathering returns after the bye week as we all try to turn our focus to Navy and Notre Dame’s chances of making the playoffs amid the myriad of 1-loss teams. Here was my question for the group: Many pundits are now saying that Notre Dame will almost certainly be in the playoffs if [...]
The first ever College Football Playoffs rankings were released on Tuesday night and one of the biggest stories was how low Notre Dame was ranked in the initial rankings. The Irish came in at #10 in the only rankings that really matter despite being 6th and 7th in the AP and Coaches Polls respectively. While [...]
The common line of thinking following Notre Dame’s heartbreaking loss to Florida State is that if the Irish win out, they are almost certain to find themselves in the playoffs.

Earlier this week Notre Dame said that they would not be releasing the results of the two month academic investigation that has kept five players out of action all season but would let the players announce the results as they received them. On Friday, the first of the five, Keivarae Russell, made the news of [...]
As Notre Dame looks to improve to 6-0 on the season and set up an epic matchup with #1 ranked Florida State, the Irish Blogger Gathering examines what the Irish must do to avoid looking ahead and writes some poetry.

Wow, what a game. Notre Dame and Stanford’s heavy weight bout yesterday had a little bit of everything. Turnovers, horrible weather, last minute drives, 4th down conversions, and so on and so on.
