  2. Jenkins addresses football suspensions to Notre Dame faculty

    After missing the first three games of the season, the fate of DaVaris Daniels, Eilar Hardy, Kendall Moore, KeiVarae Russell and Ishaq Williams is still up in the air. After announcing an official investigation into academic dishonesty in mid-August, updates on the status of the five players have been limited to head coach Brian Kelly’s weekly loop of uncertainty.

  3. Notre Dame bye week number crunching

    With the Irish getting a much needed Saturday off, we won’t hear from Brian Kelly until he’s previewing Syracuse for us next weekend. But with one quarter of the season in the books, let’s take a look at some of the surprises after three games, digging deep in to the stats after victories over Rice, Michigan and Purdue.

    It’s still way too early.

    I’ll type it again: It’s still way too early. But with one quarter of Notre Dame’s football season behind them, the Irish’s path to the first ever College Football Playoff looks wide open.

  5. The good, the bad, the ugly: Notre Dame vs. Purdue

    Don’t tell me you wouldn’t take it. Notre Dame, entering their first off week at 3-0. The offense, averaging a hearty 36.3 points a game. The defense, giving up just 10.3 points a game.

    Purdue v Notre Dame

    After two weekends of crisp, mistake-free football, Notre Dame walked into Lucas Oil Stadium expecting to roll over Purdue. And they played like it.

    With two victories behind them in impressive fashion, Notre Dame has a chance to start September with three straight victories for the second time in three seasons. Off to a clean start, the Irish are tied for the best in the nation in turnover margin, sitting pretty at +6 heading into Saturday night’s game.

    With the festivities already started in Indianapolis, let’s empty the mailbag before tomorrow night’s Shamrock Series game against Purdue.

  10. Pregame Six Pack: An all Hoosiers Shamrock Series

    Sep 12, 2014, 3:26 AM EST

    Purdue v Notre Dame

    It’s that time of year again. The annual Shamrock Series. For a program built upon tradition and history, consider the Shamrock Series something similar — only started five years ago. (So maybe not that similar at all.)

    Western Michigan v Purdue

    With a betting line that’s hovering just above four touchdowns, this weekend’s Shamrock Series game looks like it could be the most lopsided matchup since the series premiere against Washington State. But if the last five years tell us anything, expect the unexpected against Purdue.

  13. BK on Jim Rome: Didn’t see Michigan shutout coming

    Sep 10, 2014, 5:28 PM EST

    Brian Kelly, Brady Hoke

    With his team 2-0 and looking well positioned to get out of September undefeated, Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly was a guest on Jim Rome’s radio show Wednesday afternoon. The Irish head coach shared some interesting thoughts, while also being very candid about the Irish’s 31-0 defeat of Michigan.

  14. And in that corner… The Purdue Boilermakers

    Hunt, Dean

    For the second week in a row, we’ll be up late watching Notre Dame, only this Saturday it may be tough to decipher who the Fighting Irish are. Travis Miller of SBNation’s Hammer & Rails gets us ready for Purdue, as this year’s Shamrock Series kicks off this weekend.

  15. With Michigan in past, focus shifts to Purdue

    Sep 9, 2014, 4:00 PM EST

    Notre Dame v Michigan

    As Brian Kelly pointed out on Saturday night, the decisive victory over Michigan counts as only one win. So while Saturday night’s game against Purdue looks like one of the more lopsided on the Irish schedule, consider the past two matchups.

  16. Even after shutout, Irish hope best is yet to come for young D

    Michigan v Notre Dame

    During the postgame interviews, it was hard for players to hide the joy they were feeling. For a team that’s struggled to beat Michigan in the past, the 31-0 victory certainly earned the Irish every minute of the 24 hours they planned to celebrate.

  17. Jaylon Smith nominated for Lott IMPACT Player of the Week

    Jaylon Smith

    Fresh off his 10 tackle performance and leading Notre Dame to a 31-0 shutout of Michigan, linebacker Jaylon Smith earned a nomination for the Lott IMPACT Player of the Week award.

    Sep 7, 2014, 11:00 PM EST

    Michigan v Notre Dame

    As the Notre Dame-Michigan rivalry takes an indefinite break, the Irish’s most lopsided victory in the series leaves the programs in two very different places. Even as Brian Kelly plays 19 first-year contributors (true and redshirt freshmen), the Irish won all three phases of the game. Let’s look at the good, the bad and the ugly.

    This might have to be it for Notre Dame and Michigan. Because in the 42nd and final scheduled meeting between the Irish and Wolverines, Notre Dame’s delivered a 31-0 knockout punch that could very well leave Brady Hoke’s program left for dead.

    Thunder and lightning has taken over South Bend, with the sky opening up this evening. But FieldTurf has no fear, so any worry of a slow track went away when Notre Dame installed the much-maligned synthetic surface inside the stadium.

    Rice v Notre Dame

    With an online vigil of Irish fans still holding out hope for the university to decide the fate of DaVaris Daniels, Eilar Hardy, Kendall Moore, KeiVarae Russell and Ishaq Williams, the crazy week leading up to the final scheduled meeting between Notre Dame and Michigan continues to take its share of twists and turns.

    Notre Dame doesn’t usually announce any scheduling news until the entire season’s slate is set. But here’s guessing athletic director Jack Swarbrick was fine making this one exception.
