    The NFL Draft is less than a month away, and on Tuesday, 14 former Irish players returned to campus to take part in Notre Dame’s annual Pro Day. After physical measurements, vertical and broad jump and the bench press test in the weight room, the Irish players headed to the Loftus Sports Center where representatives…

    If you’re like me, most of your weekend was spent watching college hoops and marveling at the greatness that is Florida Gulf Coast University (Fun fact: The Eagles AD, Ken Kavanaugh is a Notre Dame MBA grad.) While March Madness can provide plenty of excitement as we await the start of spring (or at least…

    Everyone knows mid-March as the best time of the year for college basketball junkies, but it’s an exciting week for football fans too. Head coach Brian Kelly began Notre Dame football’s spring ball with a press conference on Tuesday afternoon at the Guglielmino Athletics Complex. On Wednesday, the Irish hit the field at the Loftus…

    Champions are made in the offseason… as it is often said. The offseason, however, is about so much more than improving on the practice field and in the weight room. It’s a time for programs to instill values (such as last year’s “A-Team” philosophy) and perhaps more importantly, for student-athletes to grow in the classroom…

    More than 12 hours after it began, National Signing Day 2013 is officially in the books.

    Throughout the 2012 football season, our good friends at the Her Loyal Sons blog put together Twitter summaries of each Notre Dame football game.

    Feb 5, 2013, 7:00 PM EST

    Our dedicated FIDM crew will be running the show from this control room.

  13. Super Bowl Bound

    Jan 21, 2013, 12:19 PM EST

    Former Irish and current 49ers teammates Ian Williams and Darius Fleming were back on campus for the Pittsburgh game on Nov. 3, 2012.

    Last year, Super Bowl XLVI featured a pair of Fighting Irish alums on opposing sides – Sergio Brown (’10) for the New England Patriots and Justin Tuck (’05) of the New York Giants. For the second time in five season, Tuck and the Giants emerged victorious against the favored Patriots. This year, there aren’t any…

During Christmas week 2011, he was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma, a cancer in the bone. While preparing for a rare Van Ness rotationplasty, the Irish…

    129 days ago, Notre Dame began its season in Dublin, Ireland. Four hours from now, the Fighting Irish play for the national championship. It’s been tough to comprehend, and even as I sit here in front of the field, it’s still kind of hard to believe. Tonight is the moment these players and coaches have…

    If you’re a Fighting Irish fan, you know all about tradition. There are few words as commonplace as “tradition” back on campus in South Bend.

    During this bowl season, I’ve seen a few tweets about the amount of food that college football players have consumed during their organized team meals. Last night, while Alabama enjoyed a barbecue on the beach, the Notre Dame football team went to the popular Brazilian steakhouse, Fogo de Chao. While I don’t have any exact…

    After weeks of anticipation, and on one of the coldest South Bend days in recent memory, Notre Dame finally took to South Florida on Wednesday.
