  1. Irish Blogger Gathering – Preseason Edition

    Aug 28, 2013, 7:00 AM EDT

    During the football season, a group of five 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 five includes Her Loyal Sons, Inside the Irish, Subway Domer, ND Nation and NDSportsBlogger (the guy writing this). It’s Temple week,…

  2. Everything You Missed From Pro Day

    Mar 26, 2013, 5:31 PM EDT

    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…

  3. Irish at the Combine: The Schedule

    Feb 22, 2013, 4:19 PM EDT

    As we wrote yesterday, the 2013 NFL Scouting Combine is being held this weekend, as some of the nation’s best prospects make their case for April’s NFL Draft. Eight former Irish players will be down in Indianapolis, and you can catch much of the action on the NFL Network and NFL.com. There are four main…

  4. It’s NFL Combine Time

    Feb 21, 2013, 2:15 PM EDT

    The 2013 NFL Draft is just over two months away, and this weekend, several former Notre Dame student-athletes will move one step closer to achieving their lifelong dream of playing on Sundays. Eight Irish players were invited to the 2013 NFL Scouting Combine. Workouts begin on Saturday and continue through Tuesday. First round hopefuls linebacker…

  5. State of the Irish: Four Years in the Making

    Jan 16, 2013, 10:21 AM EDT

    And I am back, back for one last post to reflect on my journey over the past four years with Notre Dame football. It all started in the basement of Alumni Hall on the first night of freshmen orientation perfecting the lyrics to the fight song, the alma mater and the other Notre Dame cheers.…

  6. BCS Championship: Post-Game Reaction

    Jan 9, 2013, 3:46 PM EDT

    Monday night did not go as planned. Nope, it could not have possibly gone much worse. It hurt. A lot. Manti Te’o walking off with tears in his eyes. Theo Riddick crying in the locker room. Kapron Lewis-Moore being helped off the field after a significant knee injury. Watching the Crimson Tide celebrate their third…

  7. BCS Championship: Trick Shot Monday

    Jan 7, 2013, 1:06 PM EDT

    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. From dorms to tailgates, Notre Dame students, fans and alums have countless traditions. A couple of seasons ago, a few members of the Notre Dame football team started a new…

  8. 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…

  9. BCS Championship: Day 2

    Jan 3, 2013, 5:15 PM EDT

    While the rest of the team had some time to sleep and grab breakfast before team meetings, day two got underway bright and early for a few of the defensive players and coordinator Bob Diaco. Zeke Motta, Kapron Lewis-Moore, Danny Spond and Matthias Farley spoke with the media at the Harbor Beach Marriott, the BCS…

  10. 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.…

  11. 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…

  12. 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…

  13. Facebook Photo Face-off: Round Two

    Dec 21, 2012, 3:02 PM EDT

    The second round of our photo face-off competition is now complete, and it’s actually a little crazy to see how closely the results are paralleling the madness of NCAA tournament time. From shocking upsets to top seeds taking care of business, round two had it all. Let’s take a look back at some of the…

  14. Facebook Photo Face-off: Round One

    Dec 19, 2012, 2:25 PM EDT

    If you’re a fan of Notre Dame Football on Facebook (shameless plug), you’ve probably seen the photo face-off competition that began on Tuesday afternoon. On Monday, a few of us on the Fighting Irish Digital Media team began with a group of about 60 images. We cut down to 32, and then seeded them based…

  15. Great Reads on Nix’s Return

    Dec 18, 2012, 11:16 AM EDT

    As announced on Monday, both Zack Martin and Louis Nix plan to return to Notre Dame for the 2013 season. While neither player’s return comes as a total shock, Nix’s decision to stay at Notre Dame is a bit more of a surprise, as many believe the defensive tackle is ready for the next level.…

  16. Senior Season: Perspective

    Dec 10, 2012, 6:44 PM EDT

    I haven’t had many opportunities to deal with disappointment lately. In a perfect season, that tends to be the case. Since the USC game (and the realization that we would be going to the National Championship Game), campus has been flying high on success. Not only did the football team lead us to a 12-0…

  17. 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…

  18. Postseason Awards Update (Dec. 6)

    Dec 6, 2012, 3:18 PM EDT

    I think it’s time to build a new wing at the Gug. The Fighting Irish are continuing to rack up major awards this week, and there’s potential to add a few more tonight at The Home Depot College Football Awards (7:30 pm ET on ESPN). Last night in Houston, Manti Te’o became the first Notre…

  19. Postseason Awards Update (Dec. 5)

    Dec 5, 2012, 2:58 PM EDT

    The hardware kept rolling in for the Fighting Irish on Wednesday. Tyler Eifert was named the 2012 recipient of the John Mackey Award, given annually to the nation’s top tight end. The Fort Wayne, Ind. native had 44 receptions for 624 yards and four touchdowns in 12 games. During Notre Dame’s game against Wake Forest,…

  20. Postseason Awards Update (Dec. 4)

    Dec 4, 2012, 5:00 PM EDT

    With Notre Dame headed to the national championship in a little over a month, it should come as no surprise that several Fighting Irish players and coaches are up for major post-season awards. In fact, there have been so many, that it’s starting to get difficult to keep track of them all. There will be…
