This is the only Notre Dame football preview magazine that you need in 2019


Every year, college football fans and fans of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish have an incredible array of choices for where they get their news and information for the upcoming season. The “season preview” market is flooded with material both online and in print.

Yes, I said print. Sometimes, I just love the feel of a magazine, and if your spouse has a “check your mobile device at the door” policy when entering your home’s bathroom... a magazine is the greatest throwback of them all.

For all of you Irish fans, there really should only be one choice for your preview magazine needs. The South Bend Tribune and ND Insider puts together the most comprehensive Notre Dame football preview magazine each year. These are the beat writers; the hard-working, news-breaking, ear-to-the-ground guys that don’t just live and breathe Notre Dame sports, but live and breathe because of Notre Dame sports (support your local newspaper!).

The 2019 version is just as incredible as past years. Inside the 96 pages of this year’s preview are some great features that include:

  • An interview with Brian Kelly where he goes in-depth about #BKHomeboy.
  • A spotlight on Julian Okwara and his quest to be the best pass rusher in Notre Dame history.
  • The inside story of Chase Claypool’s plan for success in 2019.
  • A thorough study of incoming 5-Star safety Kyle Hamilton.
  • The likely relationship between Ian Book and Tommy Rees.
  • A look at Notre Dame’s newest running back coach, lance Taylor.
  • A feature on the loyal and incredible Mike Elston.
  • A closer look at Notre Dame’s quarterback recruiting philosophy.

The preview also does a deep dive into each position group for the Irish in 2019 with projected depth charts.

One of my favorite things about the ND Insider preview is its freshman profiles that ask the tough questions such as:

  • Under Armour, Nike, or Adidas?
  • Preferred social media?
  • How many times have you seen the movie Rudy?
  • Most used emoji?


This thing has everything you need for the 2019 season. Eric Hansen, Tyler James, Carter Karels, and Tom Noie really give you the best overall look at Notre Dame’s football season that you just don’t get from the national magazines.

Do yourself a big favor and grab a copy for yourself or someone else now! Don’t be unprepared for a season that is sure to be full of ups and downs. Buy it and study up!
