Well, here we are friends and neighbors. Today is the day that your Notre Dame Fightin’ Irish take the field again against Temple for their official start to the 2013 season.
In the first two parts of my season preview, we took in depth looks at both sides of the team: The offense and the defense. Now that we’ve covered those areas, the most fun – and most difficult – part can commence. Yep, you guessed it, the predictions.
Irish QB Tommy Rees
On an offense that lists a bunch of question marks, the one of biggest concern for me is here at quarterback. It’s not that I think Tommy Rees is a bad quarterback. I’ve seen him play in person several times, and he’s done fairly well. But in the last three years he’s seen game action, I’ve noticed a startling trend of turnovers that hasn’t really ever gotten better. Can his last season at Notre Dame be different? Absolutely it can. Will it be? We’ll just have to wait and see. From what I know about Rees, I’d have to say as the sta

Notre Dame is widely considered one of the premier academic institutions in the United States and deservedly so. However, that doesn't mean they aren't suceptible to a spelling error every now and then.It appears as though there is a glaring spelling error on plastic souvenir cups being sold at Notre Dame's game against the Temple Owls on Saturday.Uh oh.The cups read...
No, Notre Dame did not change their nickname to the Fig-Thing Irish. That was a merely an embarrassing misspelling of their actual nickname, the Fighting Irish, that appeared on drink cups given out at Notre Dame Stadium during Saturday's football season opener against Temple.

So not only was the misspelling of the word "Fighting...
Quarterback Tommy Rees looked sharp leading Notre Dame to a 28-6 victory over Temple on Saturday in South Bend, Indiana. Roughly two weeks after Everett Golson was banned in May for being a dunce, Irish head coach Brian Kelly announced that the 21-year-old Rees would start over Andrew Hendrix and Malik Zaire. The Irish’s most experienced passer didn’t disappoint Kelly and completed...
It was solid first game for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish against the Temple Owls. Or, should be be calling the Notre Dame Fig Things? We are pretty sure that tens of thousands of these cups made the rounds at Notre Dame Stadium: MMMMMM figs No, not those! These: Yeah, those are gross too. GO FIGS GO!!! H/T @DaveSobo3
Notre Dame quarterback Tommy Rees discusses the Irish's 28-6 win over Temple in week one.
The Notre Dame Fighting Irish went undefeated in the regular season in 2012. Their lone loss came in the National Championship game. While the Irish may be without Manti Te’o and Everett Golson the expectations remain high for Brian Kelly’s squad.
Currently ranked No. 14, Notre Dame still views itself as a National Championship contender.
On Saturday the first game of the season...
For the first time in what seems like ages, there is little buzz around the storied Notre Dame football program despite coming up one win shy of the school’s 12th national championship and off the team’s best season since 1988. Notre Dame begins 2013 ranked 14th and at home on Saturday against Temple. The roster [...]
OH MY GOD WE ARE FINALLY READY FOR THE 2013 NOTRE DAME FOOTBALL SEASON!!! Finally after the offseason that just would not die, we can finally put most of that mess behind us and play some real, actual football.
The Irish are looking to get off to a good start, and in all honesty... they want to bury the last 7 months 6 feet deep right next to these so called "Owls"...
Tommy Rees threw a pair of 32-yard touchdown passes to DaVaris Daniels, a 66-yard scoring pass to Troy Niklas and Notre Dame had three quick scoring drives en route to a 28-6 victory over Temple on Saturday.
The 14th-ranked Irish jumped to a 14-0 lead on a pair of three-play drives on its opening two possessions and appeared headed for a blowout. But when the Notre Dame offense...
Middle linebacker Dan Fox, wide receiver TJ Jones, safety Matthias Farley, and cornerback Bennett Jackson met with the media following Notre Dame's 28-6 win over Temple.
Notre Dame kicked off the 2013 season in (kinda) emphatic fashion en route to beating the Temple Owls during their first-ever meeting against Notre Dame with a 1st year Head Coach in Mark Rhule and 1st-year starting quarterback in Connor Reilly. Here’s a look at a pair of stats from Saturday’s matchup: One that matters, and one that was a bit misleading.

The onus for the Notre Dame offense heading into Saturday's game against Temple is to score more.
The 14th-ranked Fighting Irish went 12-0 during last season's regular season and advanced to the national championship game against Alabama largely on the strength of a defense that held opponents to two touchdowns or less in 10 games. Coach Brian Kelly is expecting the offense...
The 2013 version of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish got off to an extra shiny start against the Temple Owls, only to wear down to a dull finish. Maybe that's a harsh statement about a team that won by more than three touchdowns, but there aren't too many other ways to describe it after the super-charged start that Notre Dame had in the game.
