Purdue vs. Notre Dame: The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

The Good - Tommy Rees. In a nutshell he was about the only good to come out of yesterday's game for the Irish.

Notre Dame Joins ACC … But Not In Football (Not Quite, Anyway)

It appears that some of the outside pressure for Notre Dame football to join a conference got the university sweating a bit. But not enough to completely join a conference.

Many...
