  2. Rees In His Rightful Place As Notre Dame QB

    Sep 19, 2013, 11:11 AM EDT

    Back in the winter of 2009, the Notre Dame football program was in a time of change. Charlie Weis had just been relieved of his duties heading the Irish and the University had yet to conclude it’s national search for a new leader of the storied squad. As different Irish football commits changed their allegiances,…

  6. @NDSportsBlogger’s Postgame Thoughts – Purdue

    Sep 15, 2013, 1:17 AM EDT

    It seemed that throughout the first half of today’s football game between the Irish and the Boilermakers at Ross-Ade Stadium in West Lafayette, Ind., I was fending off people telling me why Notre Dame quarterback Tommy Rees should be replaced. Well, I’m not sure where they are now… The 31-24 win over Purdue was not…

  8. @NDSportsBlogger Postgame Thoughts – Michigan

    Sep 8, 2013, 12:20 AM EDT

    Coming into tonight’s game with the Wolverines, the Irish had won 13-consecutive regular season games and Michigan head coach Brady Hoke had not lost in Michigan Stadium as head coach of the Wolverines (15-0). Something had to give and unfortunately for those who read this blog, tonight’s game did not end like we would have…

  11. @NDSportsBlogger Postgame Thoughts – Temple

    Aug 31, 2013, 7:51 PM EDT

    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…

    From Dublin to Los Angeles, the improbable 12-0 season has had its share of game-changing moments.

So far, three “Turning Points” features…

  19. Post-Game Reaction: The Strong Survive

    Oct 20, 2012, 9:00 PM EDT

    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…

  20. 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…

  21. 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.…

  22. State of the Irish – Stanford

    Oct 15, 2012, 1:59 PM EDT

    We are back … back in the Top 5 … and I am back to being a true Notre Dame football fan. I have to admit that over the last three seasons, I had become desensitized when it came to Notre Dame football. After dealing with heartbreak after heartbreak and working the games in the…

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

    Oct 13, 2012, 9:42 PM EDT

    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…

  24. State of the Irish – Michigan

    Sep 24, 2012, 10:19 AM EDT

    We are back … back to Notre Dame football. This week was different. It seemed as if the entire campus was holding its breath.  The student body had a weird feeling. A feeling that this year could be special. A feeling that this team was not like teams of past years. A feeling that this…

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

    Sep 23, 2012, 12:57 AM EDT

    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…
