Cover Boys: Notre Dame 2006 Pre-Season Sports Illustrated Cover

cover.notredNotre Dame seniors Brady Quinn, Tom Zbikowski and Travis Thomas are on one of the covers of this year’s Sports Illustrated College Football Preview.  SI ranks the Irish as their #2 team overall behind Ohio State.  The print version should be on most news stands already.

Other teams on the cover are Ohio State, USC, Texas, LSU, and West Virginia.

This is the first time the Irish are featured predominantly on the SI College Preview issue since Tim Brown was featured in 1987 which is the last time a Notre Dame player won the Heisman, coincidence?

  1. The cover its seems is limited to the captains. Weis named Thomas the captain of the special teams in the Spring which is why he is probably on the cover along with Quinn the offensive captain and Zbikowski, the defensive captain

  2. Why isn’t the All-American WR on this cover? I like TT a lot, but uh, he was moved from RB to LB and we happen to have an all-american returning at WR. Was it due to his hair?
