Notre Dame’s defense would suffer greatly, both at the line of scrimmage and in coverage, without the services of 5th-year senior safety Jamoris Slaughter.

The Curious Case of Notre Dame's title odds

One of my favorite pastimes is setting imaginary odds on random, hypothetical situations. It’s not healthy, but I do this for almost everything, especially weddings and Notre Dame football. Why those two in particular? Both are painfully predictable and otherwise intolerable. I mean, have you ever truly dedicated a Saturday to watching a Notre Dame game? At least people...

Lynx's Peters is an enthusiastic team player

MINNEAPOLIS When the Lynx picked Notre Dame forward Devereaux Peters with the No. 3 pick in the 2012 WNBA draft, the 22-year-old couldn't hide her surprise. She had no idea she'd be selected that high, but with as wide-open as this year's field was, Peters was a logical top choice for Minnesota. She's known for her selfless game -- playing alongside 2012 No. 8 pick...

Irish's Scott Martin getting 6th season

Notre Dame forward Scott Martin has been granted a sixth year of eligibility by the NCAA and will play again for the Irish next season. Martin, who averaged 9.5 points last season as the Irish went 22-12, transferred to Notre Dame in June of 2008 following his freshman year at Purdue. After sitting out the 2008-09 season as a transfer, Martin missed the entire 2009-10 season with...

Dragicevich transfers to BC officially

When we last blogged about Alex Dragicevich he was denying reports that he had committed to Boston College. Now his transfer is public and official. All my original comments on his transfer still hold. It's a good sign to get a transfer from Notre Dame and he has the type of game to thrive under Donahue. The bad news is that he cannot play next year and makes our class of 2015...

Notre Dame gets another year for Scott Martin

Notre Dame was unable to get a sixth year of eligibility out of the NCAA for their oft-injured star Tim Abromaitis, but they were able to get the same situation approved for forward Scott Martin (Valparaiso, Ind.). The Purdue transfer will return to play for the Irish in 2012-13. Martin, who averaged 9.5 points and 5.7 rebounds per game in helping lead the Irish to a 22-12 record...

MVP Martin Back for 2012-13 Season

The NCAA granted Irish forward Scott Martin a sixth-year of eligibility for the upcoming basketball season. With the captain’s return, Notre Dame’s starting lineup from last winter remains intact and (at least) a quartet of newcomers joining the fray.

With and Without Him

Notre Dame’s 2012 offense would struggle mightily without center Braxston Cave, just as it did last November. He's the #2 ranked overall player on our list of Indispensable Irish for 2012...and an argument could be made for #1.

Essential Irish

Each of the nine players profiled prior to Manti Te'o is a crucial piece to Notre Dame's 2012 quest for improvement. But the indomitable Te'o made any such improvement possible when he decided to return to South Bend for his senior season.
