  2. State of the Irish – Alabama

    Jan 10, 2013, 9:27 AM EDT

    And we are back … back to reality, woops there went gravity. As I stood on the field at the end of the game trying to absorb the moment, I couldn’t help but ask myself, why? Why did this season, in which everything else went right, have to end like this? My thoughts lingered as…

  3. BCS Championship Week: Day 4

    Jan 6, 2013, 12:51 AM EDT

    We’re less than 48 hours away from the big game, and it’s been a crazy couple of days here in South Florida. Today, the Fighting Irish and Crimson Tide visited Sun Life Stadium for BCS Media Day. Each team had an hour on the field, with players and coaches speaking with media members from various…

  4. BCS Championship: Day 3 (Part 2)

    Jan 4, 2013, 4:41 PM EDT

    It’s Working Wednesday (well, technically it’s Friday) for the Fighting Irish, and the big game is inching closer here in south Florida. This morning, offensive coordinator Chuck Martin and quarterback Everett Golson spoke with the media in a press conference at the Harbor Beach Marriott. In the breakout room, Zack Martin, T.J. Jones, Theo Riddick…

  5. Facebook Photo Face-off: The Stage is Set

    Jan 1, 2013, 11:30 AM EDT

    Everett vs. Manti. #5 vs. #5. Offense vs. Defense. A definitive play vs. A legendary celebration. Barbara Johnston vs. Matt Cashore. #1 seed vs. #2 seed. The Facebook photo face-off clash all comes down to this. After the top four seeds advanced to the Final Four, only the top two survived for the title match-up.…

  6. Facebook Photo Face-off: Round Three

    Dec 31, 2012, 1:07 PM EDT

    So maybe we weren’t so bad at seeding the top football photos of the 2012 season. After some upsets in the early rounds, it was “all chalk” in the Elite Eight, as the top four seeds advanced to the Final Four. So while it’s a bad day to be an NFL head coach on a…

  7. Back To Business: Facebook Photo Face-off

    Dec 28, 2012, 1:28 PM EDT

    After a little holiday hiatus, the Facebook photo face-off resumes this afternoon. Last week, we started with 32 images from the 2012 season, and today, we’re down to the final eight. The top four seeds are still alive – #1 Manti Te’o‘s Stanford celebration, #2 Everett Golson‘s two-point conversion against Pittsburgh, #3 the USC victory…

  8. 2012 Notre Dame Football Awards Recap: The Echoes

    Dec 7, 2012, 10:16 PM EDT

    While several Notre Dame players and coaches have been receiving national recognition this week, the Fighting Irish held their own awards show on Friday night at the DeBartolo Performing Arts Center. The evening included several highlight reels celebrating the team’s 12-0 regular season, as well as a tribute video honoring this remarkable senior class. But…

  9. Senior Season: Perfect

    Nov 25, 2012, 10:19 AM EDT

    The title of my first blog this season was “This Is The Year.” “The year for what though?” I asked. “The year we win a national championship? The year we go undefeated?” No, I could never ask for that. I could never jinx my team, my school, myself with a request that big. Undefeated? This…

  10. Post-Game Reaction: 12-0

    Nov 25, 2012, 5:28 AM EDT

    A goal line stand. Against their biggest rival. On the road. That kind of stuff only happens on Friday Night Lights, right? Wrong. In the shadow of Hollywood, what sounds like a finish for Coach Taylor and the Dillon Panthers, instead became the true story for Brian Kelly and the Fighting Irish. Behind the tenacious…

  11. State of the Irish – Wake Forest

    Nov 19, 2012, 11:18 AM EDT

    We are back … back to #1 in the nation!! The Irish now control their own destiny and will square off against the Trojans of Southern California for the right to go to the BCS National Championship. It doesn’t get any better than this! For my last game as a student I was back in…

  12. Post-Game Reaction: Senior Day

    Nov 17, 2012, 9:50 PM EDT

    How’s that for style points? The Fighting Irish must have been watching TV this week too. After football analysts and journalists across the country went on about how Notre Dame couldn’t win with the same flash and excitement of its undefeated counterparts, the senior class that opened its Notre Dame Stadium career with a 35-0…

  13. Boston College Post-Game Media

    Nov 11, 2012, 2:50 PM EDT

    Following Notre Dame’s 21-6 victory over Boston College, head coach Brian Kelly addressed the media, while Fighting Irish Digital Media caught up with Theo Riddick on the field, and Everett Golson, Manti Te’o, and Bennett Jackson outside the locker room.

  14. Post-Game Reaction: Only One Number Matters

    Nov 11, 2012, 2:29 AM EDT

    10. The number of games the Notre Dame football team has won this season. In case you’re not keeping track, ten is also the number of games Notre Dame has played thus far. Yep, the Fighting Irish are 10-0. Barring a crazy turn of circumstances, they will be BCS bound. Perhaps to the party in…

  15. Irish Blogger Gathering: Beat Eagles Edition

    Nov 8, 2012, 8:37 AM EDT

    This weekend, Notre Dame will play its fifth primetime game of the 2012 season, when it travels to the Bay State for a meeting with Boston College (Saturday, 8 pm ET on ABC). The Eagles are just 2-7, but will seek to spoil an unbeaten Irish season for the third time in 20 years. Before…

  16. State of the Irish – Pittsburgh

    Nov 6, 2012, 8:47 AM EDT

    We are back … and for the first time this season, Mark May is back in the win column when picking Notre Dame games! Being a senior, there are so many moments throughout this year where I stand back, try to absorb the experience and lock it away so that I will always have the…

  17. Senior Season: Finding A Way

    Nov 5, 2012, 9:36 AM EDT

    How many miracles can there be in a single game? And how likely is it that they all come sometime after the third quarter? I wasn’t worried at halftime. Things were looking shaky at halftime against BYU, but still the Irish prevailed. When our team ran onto the field for the second half, I thought,…

  18. Drive Charting: ND vs. Oklahoma

    Oct 30, 2012, 9:20 AM EDT

    Notre Dame played its best game of the season in a 30-13 victory over Oklahoma on Saturday night. For the seventh straight game, the Irish defense did not allow an explosive drive and Oklahoma’s only touchdown drive came on its shortest field position of the game. Notre Dame gave up only 15 total yards rushing…

  19. State of the Irish – Oklahoma

    Oct 29, 2012, 9:12 AM EDT

    We are back … back to playing like a champion everyday. Last week I said Notre Dame was finally going to be on the pedestal that the Irish faithful have yearned for over the past decade. On Saturday that pedestal was prepared as the crowd in Norman was electric, the stadium was striped in crimson and…

  20. Oklahoma Post-Game Media

    Oct 28, 2012, 6:16 PM EDT

    Before Notre Dame headed back to South Bend following its 30-13 win over #8 Oklahoma, Fighting Irish Digital Media captured head coach Brian Kelly‘s post-game press conference, and caught up with Everett Golson, Kapron Lewis-Moore, Bennett Jackson and Manti Te’o about the victory.

  21. Senior Season: Defining

    Oct 28, 2012, 3:35 PM EDT

    Among other things, this has been a season of defining games. I feel like I’ve heard “This is the biggest game Notre Dame has played during your time as a student” at least three times this semester. After we beat Michigan State, people said we wouldn’t be for real until we beat Michigan. But after…

  22. Post-Game Reaction: The Irish Are Back

    Oct 28, 2012, 6:32 AM EDT

    Behind the leadership of their seniors, and the poise of their talented young quarterback, the Fighting Irish stunned the college football nation on Saturday night – defeating the Oklahoma Sooners on their home turf, 30-13, to remain unbeaten and improve to 8-0 for the first time in a decade. Bloggers, analysts, experts. Seemingly no one…

  23. Irish Blogger Gathering: Beat Sooners Edition

    Oct 25, 2012, 9:21 AM EDT

    Tomorrow afternoon, Notre Dame heads out to Norman, Okla. in preparation for one of the unique match-ups in recent college football history. The Fighting Irish will meet the Oklahoma Sooners for the first time in 13 years, renewing a series that has a short, but rather significant past. Rightfully so, we have a very special…

  24. Irish Blogger Gathering: Beat Cougars Edition

    Oct 18, 2012, 4:58 PM EDT

    Less than 48 hours until game time… For this week’s Irish Blogger Gathering, I traded questions with Keith Arnold (@KeithArnoldNBC), from the NBC Sports Inside The Irish blog. I was a little slow in getting my answers over to Keith, but make sure to visit his blog soon for a look at them. You’ll also…

  25. Senior Season: Believe

    Oct 15, 2012, 5:09 PM EDT

    And just like that, any hope I had of protecting my heart vanished. There is no chance of managing expectations anymore. I don’t know why this win felt so different from the others (and by different I mean better). Certainly, beating Michigan was one of the happiest and most gratifying sports memories of my life.…
