After many months, we kickstart the OFD Bookcast to finally finish “Notre Dame’s Greatest Coaches” by Stephen Singular and Moose Krause. Seeing as how there has been a giant stretch of time between the last Bookcast episode and this one, a couple of things to keep in mind:
- Maybe go back and listen to the 6 previous installments if this is new to you.
- My dog (Bo Bowower) made things a little difficult at times.
- It’s been almost as lo since I did a solo recording, and there are a few pauses to get my ducks in a row.
So now that we have that out of the way, here’s some of the things discussed from Chapters 15 and 16:
- Moose was comically giddy to see practice after a loss.
- Joe Moore was talked about quite a bit - but not nearly enough.
- A brief clapback at Joseph Campbell’s “The Power of Myth” and Singular’s usage of it in this book.
- The end of Ara Parseghian.
- The physical toll of coaching the Notre Dame Fighting Irish.
- How Ara just forced Johnny Ray to coach in South Bend.
- A Frank Leahy impression just for Brendan’s sweet ears.
- Ara’s obsession with detail.
- Messing with Digger Phelps.
- Dave Casper just wanted Ara to leave him alone.
And plenty more weaved in and out of the show... and Bo trying to bust out of the office.
