A day dealing with roofers is a day destined for the triple option — LFG!
I WOKE LAST NIGHT TO THE SOUND OF THUNDER
Even though Deion Sanders — PRIME TIME himself — is an alum of the Florida State Seminoles, it’s the Notre Dame Fighting Irish that are the all-time prime time program. Having a handful of night games on the road each season has been a consistent theme for the Irish football program. So... if you thought the season opener against the Noles on the Sunday of Labor Day weekend was going to be an afternoon affair — you haven’t been paying attention for the last 20 years.
It’s really lining up to be an amazing weekend to kickoff the 2021 college football season.
YOU DON’T NEED PAPER
After the game in Tallahassee, the Irish come home to take on the Toledo Rockets (now feared by Tim Prister). That game will be the first one in which the Irish will use mobile ticketing as the option for home games moving forward.

Starting this fall, all athletic events will transition to mobile ticketing to provide a safer environment and enhance the game day experience.

Fear not paper lover of nostalgia, Notre Dame will provide some type of commemorative ticket option in the future.
DUMBASSERY IS ALIVE AND WELL
I’m not quite ready to work myself into a lather over “rankings” in May, but I’m definitely working my way towards that state (maybe I’ll be full rabid on this week’s OFD Podcast). I do, however, feel it’s my duty to publicly point out nonsense — like this top 25 from Mark Schlabach:
Kudos to @Mark_Schlabach on his post-Spring Top 25. Much to glean from these rankings, but we do question ranking Cincinnati ahead of Indiana, Notre Dame, and several others before proving it on the football field. #CFP https://t.co/LShMWDgAKY— CFP Selection Committee (@CFPCabal) May 17, 2021
How do you feel about the new NCAA transfer rule? Oh cool — it doesn’t matter. Your opinion about the issue should now be buried in the abyss along with any belief in Q. What truly matters is how coaches will have to work with this rule moving forward. CBS’s Dennis Dodd writes about how people like Brian Kelly now have to take on a GM role to successfully manage their rosters.
