    Jan 6, 2013, 12:51 AM EST

    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.

    Dec 28, 2012, 1:28 PM EST

    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…

    Dec 21, 2012, 3:02 PM EST

    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.

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…

  11. Postseason Awards Update (Dec. 6)

    Dec 6, 2012, 3:18 PM EST

    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…

  13. Post-Game Reaction: Senior Day

    Nov 17, 2012, 9:50 PM EST

    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…

  14. Senior Day: Love Thee Notre Dame

    Nov 16, 2012, 4:01 PM EST

    Yesterday, I wrote a rather lengthy post on the career and legacy of Manti Te’o. Manti is the Irish’s best player and the face of this team – but I would be remiss if I did not discuss the rest of this year’s departing class and the tremendous impact they have had on the resurgence…

  17. Irish Blogger Gathering: Beat Cougars Edition

    Oct 18, 2012, 4:58 PM EST

    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…

  18. Senior Season: Believe

    Oct 15, 2012, 5:09 PM EST

    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.…

  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…
