With the prospect of no football season for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish (and the rest of college football) recruiting is our sport of choice. It’s basically a chess match between like 20 other schools — so whatever the hell that game was that they played on the Millennium Falcon.

The triple option dives into the mix — LET’S GO!


For months now, there has been an uneasy feeling about 4-Star WR Lorenzo Styles. Despite his commitment to the Irish, there were reports of him talking to the Michigan Wolverines and that he might still take some official visits elsewhere. According to Mike Singer, it appears that the Irish are in much better shape with Styles and E.J. Holland can go fly a kite.


4-Star offensive lineman Blake Fisher made a little noise on Monday when he announced that he received a scholarship offer from the USC Trojans, and expressed his gratitude to Clay Helton and company for the opportunity.

Of course this ruffled the feathers of Irish fans on Twitter — which shouldn’t be tweeting at recruits anyways. People were up in arms with a kid that has done everything he can do to help Notre Dame get the best class that they can sign. He quickly shot down all nonsense.


Last week we found out that Mike Golic was going to be pulled from his show on ESPN Radio, as the worldwide leader decided to change up its lineup. Now we know he’s going to have a role with college football, and I’m excited about that.


We are right in the thick of college football award watch list season — even if there is reason to doubt we have any season at all in 2020. On Monday, the Bednarik Award for the nation’s top defender, named Kyle Hamilton and Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah as part of that list. They get no argument from me.
