  1. Strong of Heart Set To Debut on NBCSN

    Oct 2, 2012, 6:39 PM EDT

    If you’re familiar with the Fighting Irish, you’ve undoubtedly heard about the “spirit of Notre Dame.” You’ve also probably heard the Joe Theismann quote that was on The Shirt in 2005 – “If you could find a way to bottle up the Notre Dame spirit, you could light up the universe.” Perhaps that indomitable spirit…

    Sep 26, 2012, 2:10 PM EDT

    Based on some of the tweets and Facebook posts I’ve been reading, you might think the “end” of the Notre Dame-Michigan series is the sign of an impending apocalypse. Relax, friends. Yes, Notre Dame announced yesterday that it has canceled games against Michigan for the 2015-17 seasons, thereby signaling the end of the big series.…

    On the first night of autumn, The Four Seasons said it best. Oh, what a night in South Bend. Notre Dame defeated Michigan for the first time since 2008, and perhaps even better, the Irish finished September with a perfect 4-0 record. It was not always pretty – after all, the teams combined for eight…

  6. The Biggest Game in Years. Get Psyched.

    Sep 20, 2012, 4:40 PM EDT

    I can’t even begin to tell you how many times I’ve heard people talk about what it was like on campus when the Irish took on top-ranked USC in October 2005. Most of the time, their story ends with “you had to be there.” Unfortunately, I was not in Notre Dame Stadium, nor was I…

  9. Tradition Tuesday: Michigan

    Sep 18, 2012, 5:06 PM EDT

    When you ask Irish football fans the question, “Who is Notre Dame’s biggest rival?,” you will undoubtedly get one of two answers – USC or Michigan (or some variation of these, depending on how family-friendly your respondents choose to be). What will come as a surprise to some fans, however, is that Saturday will mark…

    In all my years of cheering for old Notre Dame, I’ve never been more proud than tonight.
