    The Notre Dame football team moved to 3-1 on the season after a 17-13 victory over the Michigan State Spartans on Saturday, Sept. 21, 2013 at Notre Dame Stadium in Notre Dame, Ind. After each game this season I have put together a list of three thoughts or takeaways from the game. Today is no…

  10. @NDSportsBlogger Postgame Thoughts – Temple

    Aug 31, 2013, 7:51 PM EST

    On the back of a career-day from quarterback Tommy Rees, the Irish started out the season strong with a 28-6 victory over the Temple Owls on Saturday, Aug. 31 on the Notre Dame Stadium turf in Notre Dame, Ind. Notre Dame’s offense today would be best described as a “quick strike” one today. On the…

  11. New Traditions At Notre Dame?

    Aug 22, 2013, 4:58 PM EST

    As I was getting ready for some good ole’ fashion football media day festivities, I was talking with athletic media relations student worker Andrew Bartolini (’13) about how we thought the football season would play out. Our conversation flowed from this season to fun things we had done recently and new marketing tactics the University…

  12. Senior Day: The Player Walk

    Nov 17, 2012, 2:14 PM EST

    We’re just under 90 minutes away from kickoff here at Notre Dame Stadium.

While both…

  16. Post-Game Reaction: The Strong Survive

    Oct 20, 2012, 9:00 PM EST

    7-0. On a perfect October day, the special season continues in South Bend. Coming off of last week’s legendary goal line stand, the Fighting Irish avoided a letdown and dropped the BYU Cougars, 17-14. Throughout the week, I can’t tell you how many times I heard the phrase “trap game” thrown around. With the university…

  17. Building Up To BYU

    Oct 17, 2012, 5:09 PM EST

    There are a few things you should know about me. First, I hate rain, but only when I’m in it. Second, I love football. I mean that I have a deep burning passion in my gut for watching the game. Third, I’m never going to forget October 13, 2012. When I saw the weather forecast, I…

  19. Post-Game Reaction: October 13, 2012.

    Oct 13, 2012, 9:42 PM EST

    6-0. Wow. I’d love to sit here and pen an eloquent recap of what happened at Notre Dame Stadium on the night of October 13, 2012, but my head is still spinning, and truthfully, while I consider myself a strong writer, I’m not sure my words will ever fully capture the emotion of the Irish’s…

  20. A Little Perspective: Football Scheduling

    Sep 26, 2012, 2:10 PM EST

    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.…

  22. Post-Game Reaction: Oh, What A Night

    Sep 23, 2012, 12:57 AM EST

    On the first night of autumn, The Four Seasons said it best. Oh, what a night in South Bend.

  24. Tradition Tuesday: Michigan

    Sep 18, 2012, 5:06 PM EST

    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…

  25. Post-Game Reaction: ND Tops Purdue, 20-17

    Sep 8, 2012, 9:27 PM EST

    It has often been said, “There are two certainties in life – death and taxes.” Well, I think there are three. As the years come and go, the story remains – Notre Dame football will always give me heart palpitations. It was not easy, but the Fighting Irish came away with a 20-17 victory over…
