    Nov 19, 2014, 12:02 AM EST

    Washington v Notre Dame

    Notre Dame graduate assistant Kyle McCarthy took to Twitter to share the good news that he’s been given a cancer-free diagnosis. The former Irish captain had been battling an undisclosed type of cancer since earlier this year, staying with the team throughout surgery and multiple treatments.

    Purdue v Notre Dame

    Brian Kelly met with the media this afternoon, a few days into preparation for Louisville. While there were certainly questions about how the Irish were going to challenge a Cardinals team with some really exceptional personnel on both sides of the ball, the focus was mostly on the guys inside Notre Dame’s locker room.

    A little less than 48 hours after Notre Dame’s loss to Northwestern, it doesn’t seem like too many people are over it. So let’s dispense with the introductions and pull the band-aid.

    Here’s the good, bad and ugly from Saturday’s disastrous 43-40 loss to the Wildcats.

    Jonas Gray became the NFL’s overnight sensation. It only took three long years for him to get there. The former Irish back dominated in a breakthrough game for the Patriots.

    Brian Kelly

    As you might have noticed, Notre Dame lost to Northwestern yesterday. And that’s got more than a few people unhappy. Brian Kelly talked about moving forward on his Sunday teleconference.

  6. Five things we learned: Northwestern 43, Notre Dame 40

    Northwestern v Notre Dame

    Apologies to Van Morrison’s mother. There didn’t have to be days like this.

    Notre Dame’s overtime 43-40 loss to Northwestern Saturday is a game that defies explanation. Turnovers. Mistakes. Coaching blunders. They all add up to the worst Saturday Brian Kelly has ever had at Notre Dame Stadium, and perhaps one of the worst defeats in his 20-plus year coaching career.

    Michigan v Notre Dame

    After a long time away from South Bend, the Irish finally return home to Notre Dame Stadium. Met by Northwestern, the Irish have a chance to get back to their winning ways, against a Wildcat team that’s 3-6 and struggling in a less-than-stellar Big Ten.

  9. Northwestern Mailbag: (Begrudgingly) Moving on

    Nothing like a difficult loss to rankle the soul of an Irish fan. And while I smartly steered clear of the comments, it doesn’t look like too many of you did. For a football fan, you can dwell on struggles and turnovers and other mistakes for weeks and weeks. For a football team? It’s on to the next one.

  10. Pregame Six Pack: Wildcats in the winter

    Nov 14, 2014, 2:37 PM EST

    Michigan v Notre Dame

    It’s a winter wonderland in South Bend. As an early snow covers the Midwest before the middle of November, it’s a wonderful reminder that FieldTurf has been installed in Notre Dame Stadium, allowing Saturday afternoon’s game to look more like football than broomball, as it has in the past.

  11. High stakes struggles: Irish D failing when it counts

    Joe Schmidt

    Heading into the season, questions surrounded Notre Dame’s defense. With key starters gone at every position, the strength of Brian Kelly’s previous four teams would need to replace a cast of characters that played a lot of really good football.

  13. And in that corner… The Northwestern Wildcats

    Nov 12, 2014, 10:20 AM EST

    Wisconsin v Northwestern

    Coming off a difficult and frustrating loss to Arizona State, Notre Dame welcomes Northwestern to town, a second opportunity at an eighth victory. For as difficult as last Saturday was for Irish fans, it’s been wash, rinse and repeat for those following the Wildcats this year. Lake the Posts gets us prepared for this weekend, getting us up to speed on the misery that’s overtaken Evanston lately.

  14. Playoffs or not, Irish get back to work

    Notre Dame v Arizona State

    Notre Dame’s playoff hopes are dead. But the Irish are not. Head coach Brian Kelly met with the media on Tuesday for his weekly press conference, reminding everybody that there are still three very important games on the schedule.

    Give Brian Kelly credit. He found an appropriate nickname for the egg the Irish laid Saturday afternoon, dubbing it, “The Debacle in the Desert” during his Sunday post mortem teleconference. That game shook the core of the Irish, with Everett Golson’s five-turnover afternoon ending Notre Dame’s playoff chances in a first half from hell.

    Lloyd Carrington, Everett Golson

    While countless variables exist on every single snap in football, there are still a few universal truths that govern the game. Notre Dame found that out the hard way, as five turnovers and an inability to protect the quarterback flushed the Irish’s College Football Playoff chances down the toilet.

    New Era Pinstripe Bowl - Rutgers v Notre Dame

    With an early flight to Phoenix and a kickoff at a little after 1 p.m. local time, let’s hammer out a Friday evening mailbag. Some interesting questions that I hope delivered some satisfactory answers.

  19. NCAA clears Eilar Hardy, able to play against ASU

    Nov 7, 2014, 12:39 PM EST

    Navy v Notre Dame

    Notre Dame senior safety Eilar Hardy has been cleared for competition by the NCAA, opening the door for him to play this weekend against Arizona State. Hardy was one of five Irish football players held out of action after an academic investigation ultimately cost DaVaris Daniels, Kendall Moore, KeiVarae Russell and Ishaq Williams their seasons.

  20. Pregame Six Pack: The showdown in the desert

    A tumbleweed blows by. Dust kicks up. Todd Graham saunters into the foreground, space-aged headset just off his cheek. Brian Kelly steps out from behind a saloon door. No, this isn’t the O.K. Corral, but Saturday’s (just after) high-noon showdown certainly has some drama baked into it.
