Irish Blogger Gathering – ASU (Subway Domer)

Oct 2, 2013, 8:55 AM EDT


During the football season, a group of six Notre Dame bloggers join forces to ask one another questions and see who can come up with the best and most clever responses. The group of six includes Her Loyal Sons, Inside the Irish, Subway Domer, UHNDND Nation and NDSportsBlogger (the guy writing this).

The whole Irish convoy travels to the heart of Texas for this year’s Shamrock Series game…

Here are the links to the other ‘gatherings’ that took place around the interweb:

For this edition I had the opportunity to ask Mr. Subway Domer himself three questions: And we’re off!

  1. 1. So, about the Alma Mater fiasco, what are your thoughts?
  2. SD: Apparently not enough. This has been a major topic coming out of the OU game, and I really haven’t given it much thought. This isn’t a “tradition” in the sense that it has been around for decades. It started during the Charlie Weis era. I understand both sides, but honestly I make no big issue of it. Personally, I think they should just go back to the players saluting the students during the victory march and then head back into the locker room, but as a Subway Alum… I’ll leave that to the students, players, and administrators.
  4. 2. We are almost to the midpoint of the season, give me your Irish MVP, Most Improved, Most Likely To Make a Second-Half Impact and Coach of the Year.
  5. SD: MVP- Louis Nix. Despite a supposed lack of stats, Nix has been a monster on the inside and someone that the opposing offense has to gameplan against each week.
  6. Most improved- Troy Niklas. He had an rough game against Purdue, but for the most part, Niklas has been an incredible blocker and has shown good hands and the ability to get open.
  7. 2nd Half Impact- Tarean Folston. I think we are finding our lead back in GA3, but Folston is looking the part as the next guy in and I expect a lot more from him during the remainder if the season.
  8. Coach- Mike Denbrock.
  9. 3. This weekend the Irish head down to North Texas to play Arizona State in AT&T Stadium in the Shamrock Series. What are your top-three Shamrock Series Venues and what team would the Irish play at that venue.
  10. SD: Wisconsin at Lambeau Field.
  11. Tennessee at Bristol
  12. Ohio State at Lucas Oil Stadium
