  1. Totally there with you....sorry been awhile since I posted!! 20-month old twins born at 25-weeks will do that!! I was HOPING that they would get rid of BK and bring in PJ Fleck!!! Kinda pissed they didn't and now I am following the Gophers!! Trust me Fleck is going to be the next Urban Myer!!!
  2. I think it is Del Rio's as well...problem is they will have to wait till most likely February to announce and that can sometimes affect recruiting!!!

  5. http://www.chicagotribune.com/sports/college/chi-nick-watkins-notre-dame-20131101,0,374918.story By Brian HamiltonTribune reporter 12:22 p.m. CDT, November 1, 2013 Notre Dame harvested fertile recruiting ground to bolster its defensive backfield. Nick Watkins, a four-star cornerback from Dallas, made an oral commitment Friday to play for the Irish, according to multiple online reports. The 6-foot-1, 189-pound Watkins is the No. 160 overall prospect in the country, according to Rivals.com, and the 17th commitment for Notre Dame in the senior class. Watkins reportedly had a long list of suitors that included Alabama, Baylor, Florida State, Georgia, Ohio State, Stanford and USC, among others. "Education," Watkins told AggieYell.com about the pledge to Notre Dame. "I want to major in business and they have the No. 1 business school. Football, coach (Kerry) Cooks, coach (Bob) Diaco, all are great guys. I think I can take my talents up there and contribute and help win a national championship." Irish Illustrated, Irish Eyes, Blue and Gold Illustrated and Irish Sports Daily all reported Watkins' commitment. bchamilton@tribune.com Twitter @ChiTribHamilton
  6. http://www.chicagotribune.com/sports/college/chi-notre-dame-everett-golson-brian-kelly-20131031,0,7423795.story By Brian HamiltonTribune reporter 9:07 p.m. CDT, October 31, 2013 Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly does not have total control over Everett Golson right now, due to the quarterback's semester-long exile from the school. But that may change soon. "From what I’m hearing," Kelly said Thursday after practice, "he is trying to make his way back here sometime in the next few weeks." Should Golson return to campus and be readmitted as expected after a suspension for academic reasons, he is eligible to practice with the Irish as soon as final exams are over -- and he will do so, Kelly said, even though Golson cannot participate in any athletic contests between semesters. "A lot of this is theoretical," Kelly said. "Let’s say he’s admitted back into school on Dec. 15. He would be eligible to practice. If that’s the case, then we would practice him, but he would not, of course, be eligible to compete. Provided of course he gets readmitted. I’m just answering the question as it relates to his eligibility." The readmission hurdle is a real technicality that no one seems too nervous about. Golson reconfirmed in an interview with Sports Illustrated published this week that he will return to Notre Dame, and Kelly said there would be no academic hold-ups as long as Golson fulfills his requirements in the spring. "He would be eligible in terms of academics when he gets back here and would be on track because of the one-time missed semester rule," Kelly said. "He would be eligible, provided he does all the normal 12 hours (of classes) and GPA and things of that nature in the spring." As for Golson speaking to Sports Illustrated and effectively conceding that he cheated on an exam to earn the suspension, Kelly more or less shrugged it off. "If he’s here on campus and he’s in our program and he’s under my charge, I’m really good at giving advice," Kelly said. "But he’s not in the program right now, so I’m not giving (advice). Those are his decisions that he is free to make." bchamilton@tribune.com Twitter @ChiTribHamilton
  7. http://espn.go.com/blog/notre-dame-football/post/_/id/18226/planning-for-success-notre-dame-7 SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Corey Robinson and his dad never talk football. Dad doesn't know anything about the sport, Corey said, and Corey feels as if he himself still has a lot to learn about the game despite playing it every day. Saturday will nonetheless present quite the family conflict for the Robinsons when Corey takes the field for No. 25 Notre Dame against Navy, his father's alma mater. It was with the Midshipmen that his father, a pretty tall guy by the name of David RobinsonDavid, helped set himself up to be taken No. 1 overall by the San Antonio Spurs and win two championships during a 14-year Hall of Fame NBA career. "I need to talk to my dad about this, make sure he's wearing my jersey or wearing Notre Dame something as opposed to Navy," Corey Robinson said of this weekend's matchup. "But I think my grandpa who also served in the Navy might be wearing Navy. I don't know. There's a lot of Navy happening right now. I need to change that." A freshman receiver with the Irish, Robinson reached the end zone for the first time this past Saturday against Air Force, hauling in a 35-yard pass from Tommy Rees for Notre Dame's first touchdown. He has five catches for 101 yards through eight games after enrolling this past spring. He would always visit his father's old campus in Annapolis, Md., for older reunions and such, but Notre Dame's offer sent him in another direction when choosing a college out of San Antonio Christian High. "I think he was happy, because he was telling me horror stories," Robinson said of his dad. "I think he was trying to scare me out of it. He was all like, ‘You have to wake up at 5 in the morning, and all the PT we had to do in addition to basketball and football.' He said he didn't get any sleep the whole time. He's a smart guy, and he told me he got some bad grades his first couple years. And I was like, ‘Hmm, I don't know if that's for me or not.’ I think he was actually happy when I told him I wanted to go somewhere else." The 6-foot-4.5, 205-pound Robinson will probably never reach his father's height of 7-1. David Robinson has been a fixture at Irish games so far, gestures that Corey appreciates, though he gives off little sign that he is a son with a famous father. "He's a very easy-going guy, it seems like he never really gets riled up, never really seen him get upset or anything like that," Rees said. "He's extremely competitive and you can tell the way that he grew up there's a lot of structure, a lot of different -- this is how you work, this is what's expected of you. And he does a great job of coming in every day eager to learn and eager to get better." Speaking to reporters Wednesday, the weight of the game had yet to dawn upon Robinson. Right now it is another military academy and another option-offense that stands in the way of the Irish extending their winning streak to four in a row as they make a late run toward a BCS-bowl berth. That sentiment probably does not run throughout the family, though. "So far it's another game. I think for my dad, it means a little more to him," Robinson said. "I'm excited to play Navy. But at the end of the day, we've got to get the win. it doesn't matter who we're playing. I respect them and I respect what they do and I'm excited to go play a school that I wanted to go to for a very long time, that my dad's helped out a lot. But we have to get the W."
  8. http://espn.go.com/blog/notre-dame-football/post/_/id/18235/mcdaniel-has-fun-with-celebrity-attention SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Cam McDaniel was talking Wednesday about the photo seen 'round the world, joking that there is nothing to heckle him about. He said that Brian Kelly told him he heard the running back is now a model, and that a teammate later informed him of a rumor going around that McDaniel and fellow junior Troy Niklas would be leaving school after this season to pursue modeling careers. "Maybe Troy," McDaniel said, "but not myself." "WordPress," Niklas said of his media outlet, "what exactly do you call the look, and how long have you been working on it?" And of course, McDaniel just happened to be in position to deliver the perfect line, thanks to his movie choice last week. "People are starting to call it 'Blue Steel,' " McDaniel said. "The funny thing is literally the night before all this went viral, I was watching 'Zoolander' -- I kid you not, promise you. And didn't have any relation to like all this. People had not mentioned any model-esque type things before this and then the next day all of this goes viral, Blue Steel-type stuff, and it was so funny. It really was. A very strange coincidence." This is the kind of attention McDaniel now finds himself dealing with after losing his helmet against USC and, seemingly in an instant, striking a pose amidst being tackled. He has since been on NBC's "The Today Show," with the 5-foot-10, 207-pound running back seeing his name and face plastered over all sorts of different pop culture outlets. "It was pretty funny because I remember the play where his helmet came off, and I remember him kind of spinning down and he was kind of behind me," left tackle Zack Martin said. "He got spun down pretty good, so to think that his face looked like that when he was going down ... " Niklas, like the media horde around McDaniel, wanted to know if the Coppell, Texas native had any other tricks up his sleeve. A cameo in "Zoolander 2," perhaps? After all, McDaniel did mention that he can turn, and even run, left. "Is there another look you're working on that we could see maybe debut pretty soon here?" Niklas asked. "Magnum?" "A lot of things go on underneath the helmet so just really focused on that right now," McDaniel said. "But if it pops off then we'll see."
