Joshua, Jude, and Brendan (a bit later) step up to the starting line for 5 seconds (AKA 2.5 hours) of Notre Dame Fighting Irish podcasting magic. In this episode:

  • Just some questions we have about Harry Hiestand reclaiming his spot as the offensive line coach.
  • Jarrett Patterson’s injury.
  • Notre Dame Hockey advances.
  • Notre Dame’s #2 seed in the ACC Tournament.
  • The women’s basketball team running into a hurricane.
  • This new football staff and their recruiting chops.
  • Concerns with the new football staff?
  • Hello NFL Combine!
  • Jack Coan is going to get drafted. Repeat that over and over.
  • Kevin Austin’s big day and what it may mean in the NFL Draft.
  • Kyren Williams did not have a good showing at the combine and now let the debate begin.
  • Kyren’s 40 time matters quite a bit but Kyle Hamilton’s does not.
  • Getting better with a name.
  • What we’re looking for this spring and what we hope Notre Dame figures out.
  • Top 5 fish sandwiches for Lent (Jude is a heathen).
  • A massive discussion about NFT’s that actually means something in real life.

And plenty more weaved in and out of the show.
