Answering Important Notre Dame Football Questions: Playoffs

I thought it had only been a month since my last post. I thought I had done something within that time to ready myself and some of my loyal subjects for the season ahead- but then I took note at the time lapse, and realized that it has been nearly two months since I last took fingers to keyboard. I kind of wanted to write some things, and I vaguely remember going over some thoughts...

How the Bearcats Can Improve the AAC’s National Image

The youth of American Athletic Conference is such that it tends to be thought of in a very poor light. So much so, that as soon as the Big East folded into a basketball only conference of all the private schools of the former Big East, that this new conference lost it’s spot in the BCS format. The meaning behind that is basically saying that the AAC is the equivalent of the MAC...

Coaching Overhaul Underway At Notre Dame

There was an extraordinary amount of chatter across the message boards and social media during the second half of the season- as well as a large portion of the time leading up to the bowl game, that Brian Kelly should be fired as the head coach of the Notre Dame football team. Once it proved obvious that Jack Swarbrick would not pull the trigger, and Notre Dame won a game against...

National Signing Day Winners and Losers in the AAC

With National Signing Day over, and fans already setting sights on the 2016 class, time to take a look at which programs in The American came out as winners, or losers, on NSD 2015. Note: “Winning” or “losing” in recruiting is 100 percent relative to the expectations of the particular program. For perspective, if Alabama finished with the country’s 10th-best recruiting...

Notre Dame Bowl Troll

There is a very large number of Notre Dame fans that have expressed their opinion about Notre Dame’s bowl future. In fact, most of them want there to be no future. For whatever reason they may have, for them, it would be sacrilege for the Fighting Irish to go bowling in 2014. The reasons range from COWARD-ASS ***** all the way to ELITIST DESPITE ALL EVIDENCE TO THE CONTRARY. A...

Trojan Blood

So it’s come to this. A season that, since August, has seen some of the biggest roller coaster like ups and downs that I have ever seen, is now spiraling downward on its final run. But, it’s not finished and that last turn is still unforeseeable. Notre Dame is sitting at 7-4 and for the first time in the Brian Kelly era, I have lost a bit of faith in “the process.” My job...

Cause And Effect: The Code of 85

It didn’t take long for fans and media alike to start throwing gasoline on what some might consider the “dumpster fire” that Notre Dame’s 2014 season has become. There are no shortage of opinions on who or what is to blame for this 7-3 record with 3 of the last 4 games being losses and the other being a mediocre performance against Navy. While many want to start throwing...

Three and Out: The Cincinnati Bearcats and the Cradle of Coaches

With last weekend’s spanking at the hands of Ohio State still sticking in the fans’ respective craw, it might bring to mind the last team Cincinnati fell foul of an Urban Meyer-coached team, the 2009 Sugar Bowl. Meyer, as everyone and their mother likely knows, is a former Bearcat who began his coaching career in Ohio. Photo used courtesy of cleveland.com. Ohio has long been...

Is Notre Dame Football Getting Offensive?

The Fighting Irish are now knee deep into training camp. The week long “camping trip” to Culver is over, and the team is now in full pads and at home- hitting and clawing and kicking and bleeding on the practice field. Despite ESPN’s all day presence for Monday’s practice, the media has had very little access to what Kelly and the staff are doing with the team. Sure, Ringmaster...

Essential Notre Dame Offseason: Purdue

The 2014 Notre Dame football season starts off normal enough- well at least at first glance. Rice was a typical undercard. Michigan, a familiar pain in the ass. And now, the annual game with Purdue. However, it’s not normal. Both the Michigan and the Purdue games are series finales (for now) and the Purdue game will be in Indianapolis instead of South Bend. Oh, you tricky Irish...
