Due to a crazy week I'm a day late on this so it is going to be light on commentary.
I'm maxed out on Johnny Football but this is pretty funny.
His exploits earned him a righteous gunslinger nickname, "Johnny Football," and he was an American hero at age 20. But the word "legend" is reserved for larger-than-life personalities.
As we count down the best of the BCS, we thought it would be wise to focus on an entertaining aspect of college football that generally takes place off the field: Coaches, players and the occasional administrator interacting with the media.
Judge Bill Sowder ruled against Leach on Wednesday in lawsuits he filed against ESPN, Craig James and a public relations firm relating to his dismissal from Texas Tech in December 2009. The decision was announced in a one-page ruling that simply read "The Court grants each of the Defendant's Motions for Summary Judgment."
Speaking of Texas Tech, how do you all think Kliff Kingsbury experiment is going to go? I thought the below video was an interesting glimpse into how he operates.
Patterson was publicly critical Wednesday of Miles' decision to allow his team to vote on whether previously suspended running back Jeremy Hill should be reinstated to the team after receiving two additional years of probation for his role in a bar fight. He was already on probation for another matter.
"I know what I said. I didn’t mention Jeremy Hill. I didn’t mention Les Miles," Patterson said after Thursday’s practice. "It was more about Devonte Fields. If they want to make something up so they can get all fired up… I can get the same thing when I go home. Everyone can stand in line."
I guess that whole Jay Bilas thing got in the NCAA's loop a little bit.
It seems like the flap surrounding the NCAA online store has caused more than just embarrassment.
Back to South Bend. Here are a few articles about individual players.
Amir Carlisle watched from the sideline as his teammates carried Notre Dame to its first undefeated regular season in 25 years.
DaVaris Daniels ran a route downfield and hauled in a pass for about 20 yards. Instead of just getting wrapped up by the defense until the whistle blew ... POW! Safety Elijah Shumate laid him out. It was obvious Daniels wasn’t counting on the contact.
The last time Tommy Rees was handed the keys to Notre Dame's offense, he had a pair of first-round weapons to work with. Michael Floyd caught 100 passes in 2011, while Tyler Eifert grabbed 63.
Keith is still rolling on the Zapruder film examinations.
There's a ton of great information on the internet right now with Friday afternoon's practice open to the media. You'd do yourself a favor to check out all the great stuff out there, but as always, here's another way too close look at the UND.com Practice Report.
Let's keep trudging through the Irish roster, digging deeper than its healthy (is it wrong that I picture a q-tip when I write that) as we examine the juniors on the Irish roster. Again, just a few observations as I go through the official 2013 roster.
Her Loyal Sons is proud to once again host a silent auction of Notre Dame tickets to support the general scholarship fund and Kelly Cares.
