GOING BACK HOME
Former Irish running back Logan Diggs announced his transfer destination, and it comes as a surprise to absolutely no one. The Louisiana native is headed home to play for a FAHMULEEE, Brian Kelly, and the LSU Tigers.

ANOTHER TRANSFER PORTAL DESTINATION
Former Notre Dame player (and Mishawaka native) Paul Moala has announced that he is transferring to play for the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets. Moala played one year out west for the Idaho Vandals before deciding that Atlanta was the place for him.

We are only 3 years into the 2020s (sorry Jude) and the Irish currently have the 5th best record in college football this decade, to go along with one college football playoff appearance.
