While Notre Dame will not have any shortage of supporters when the Irish go after their first national football title since 1988 in the BCS Championship game January 7, it seems unlikely anyone will be more amped than Pat Salvi.
In case the name escapes, Salvi is the successful Chicago attorney who along with his wife Lindy owns both the American Association team in Gary, IN and the Schaumburg (IL) Boomers of the Frontier League.

But the capper is that two of Pat and Lindy’s sons are seniors on this year’s unbeaten team. Chris, who wears number 24, is a 5-foot-10 hustle guy who finally got a scholarship this season and will be on the front line when Notre Dame lines up to start the 60-minute battle against Alabama since he

Notre Dame wide receiver T.J. Jones has plenty on his mind as he prepares for the talented Alabama secondary he'll face in the BCS championship game Jan. 7 in Miami.

Notre Dame, off for exams since a 109-70 victory against Utah State on Dec. 8, reached...
Coaches Trophy awarded to the BCS National Champion (pictured). All 124 teams ranked at the end of the article. Jimbo Fisher is right in that we need to change how we pick teams, but humans may not be the best method. The upcoming four team playoff will haul in loads of money and additional popularity for college football, but it could easily open the door wide...
Skylar Diggins and Natalie Achonwa were two big reasons why Texas A&M didn't get the best of Notre Dame again.

Brian Kelly has led the Notre Dame Fighting Irish to a 12 – 0 season. The last time the Irish were 12 – 0 was in 1988 when Lou Holtz led them to a national championship in both the AP and Coaches’ polls.
“When you’re talking about the coach of the year, there’s so many things that go into it,” Kelly said. “I know it’s an individual award and it goes to one guy...

Yesterday it was Nucklez with the best tailgating party anthem of all time. Now it's Carey Fountain and Rudy Problems (seriously, Rudy Problems) dropping Alabama rap song that would've been #1 on TRL for like 40 straight days in 1996.
NOTRE DAME. For the love of God, step your game up. Please.
