Notre Dame Football Archive
CBS posted their preview of this weekend’s game and I gotta say that I think it’s pretty spot on. This will be a very tough game for us to win and we’re going to need to force some early turnovers and have a fast start to have a good chance.
Trev Alberts is on some YouTube video from Sprint talking about the Notre Dame-Michigan State game this weekend and everyone’s favorite former ESPN college football analysts actually picks Notre Dame to go into East Lansing and come out with the win. He also gives Clausen some props for his development. Obviously Trev hasn’t talked to [...]
Here are some highlights from Jimmy Clausen and David Grimes’ press conference from Wednesday. David Grimes On how his back is feeling: It’s doing good, actually. I’m making some progress the last few days. Yeah, I’m feeling a lot better. And if I’m able to go Saturday, I will. On the team playing with emotion: [...]
ESPN released it’s coverage maps for this weekend’s games and as long as you have ESPN, you should be fine. Everyone who doesn’t get the Notre Dame game on their local ABC affiliate looks like they will be able to see the game on ESPN. Here are the two maps so you can see which [...]
Charlie Weis addressed the media on Tuesday and had an update on the health of starting wide receiver David Grimes and starting right guard Chris Stewart. “I think Chris is going to go today. David was going to go get another test on his back today because he’s stiff again. We’re going to see where [...]
This might be one of the bigger Michigan State games for Notre Dame in a while. A win would be HUGE for the Irish since the rest of the schedule prior to USC looks very favorably after this game. Anyway, here’s a couple of Michigan State highlight reels to get everyone going from the last [...]
JD posted this over on the football forum, but I thought it warranted a reposting over here. Remember, this clip is from 1988 when Notre Dame Stadium held 20,000 FEWER seats. ND Stadium was rocking on Saturday, but nothing close to this. The players and students seem to be ready to get back to atmospheres [...]
Here’s a pretty funny “highlight” video from Saturday’s win over Michigan. I wouldn’t have found it funny if Michigan fans didn’t make the “Jimmy for Heisman” video showing our blunders in Ann Arbor last year, but they did. So enjoy. Hat tip to The House Rock Built for the find.
I’m still getting caught up with all of the press conferences and interveiws from Saturday’s game, but I just saw this tidbit from Weis’s presser Sunday morning. Q. Yesterday after the game some of the players said specifically they had never seen you like you were before the game. Can you talk about that a [...]
The best stat of this young 2008 season is by far 0 – as in 0 sacks allowed by the Irish offensive line. After surrendering a NCAA record 58 last season, the Irish offensive line is off to a great start in keeping Jimmy Clausen on his feet this year. When asked about the improvement [...]
Here’s some sideline video from Palestra.net from Saturday’s 35-17 win over Michigan.
This week’s guest on the UHND podcast will be Aaron Taylor. We’ll go live at 9PM ET/6PM PT and should have Aaron for a while. If you have any questions for him, post them in the comments section here or join us in the chat room for Wednesday’s show. Aaron is working for CBS these [...]
Lou Holtz was the featured speaker at the Pep Rally on Friday and he was absolutely fantastic. 1988 team captain Ned Bolcar did a pretty awesome job firing up the crowd as the first speaker, but Lou had everyone going crazy. This was easily one of the best pep rallies I’ve ever attended.
Here are my observations after rewatching the game on my DVR this afternoon. Great protection from the offensive line keeping Michigan from recording a sack – the second straight week the Irish haven’t allowed a sack. Good job by Clausen avoiding a couple sacks as well. Brian Smith looks like the emotional leader of the [...]
Yesterday’s game against San Diego State was not the kind of start any of us had hoped for. SDSU was smaller, slower, and injured and we were an inch or two away from being down 2 scores in the fourth quarter. I’ve been saying all summer long that if we couldn’t run the ball against [...]
