Sandwiched between big-time, national matchups, Notre Dame and North Carolina meet this Saturday in South Bend. And while Irish fans have been calling this game a trap since August, Brian Kelly talked a little bit about the mindset that’s needed when dealing with a schedule that includes headliners and landmines, all worth the same at the end.

Notre Dame has added the all important quarterback to their recruiting class. Former Penn State commitment Brandon Wimbush has joined the Irish recruiting class, officially flipping his commitment after a weekend visit to South Bend.

The shockwaves from a crazy college football Saturday are still being felt. But after beating Stanford 17-14, Notre Dame is one of the few Top 10 teams that survived and advanced this weekend, with Oregon, Alabama, Oklahoma, Texas A&M and UCLA all getting tripped up.

In the middle of a busy football weekend, Notre Dame began its 2016 recruiting class with a key building block. Blue-chip offensive line recruit Tommy Kraemer pledged his commitment to the Irish, the first member of the junior class to commit to Notre Dame.

With Notre Dame’s academic investigation closed and the Honor Code committee meetings completed as of Friday, the fate of football players DaVaris Daniels, Eilar Hardy, Kendall Moore, KeiVarae Russell and Ishaq Williams will be determined sometime next week. But for those expecting some gigantic statement out of the university, it’s not happening.

Anatomy of a soul-crushing defeat: Back-breaking turnovers. Missed scoring opportunities. Wasted performances. The Irish looked like they had put together the perfect recipe for a painful loss through 57 rain-soaked, wind-swept minutes in Notre Dame Stadium. But Everett Golson and the Irish offense rallied for a game-winning touchdown drive, helping the Irish pull off a wild 17-14 victory over Stanford Saturday afternoon.

Fall weather came in a hurry. With temperatures in the mid-70s earlier this week and expected to be back there as of Monday, Stanford was welcomed to South Bend by temperatures hovering around 40 degrees, a stiff wind and rain all but assured this afternoon.

I’ve been told that the wonderfully simple mailbox imagery I’ve open-sourced from the internet isn’t cutting it. So we’ve made some changes to reflect our new attitude in the mailbag.

It wasn’t long ago that a game with Stanford was a Saturday you might skip. On a schedule loaded with rivals, it was hard to consider the Cardinal one of them. But in a matchup that’s only missed two seasons since 1988, the battle between the two programs has taken flight, mostly thanks to the advancement of the football program in Palo Alto.

Early in Brian Kelly’s tenure at Notre Dame, the Irish had a particularly painful Saturday. No, it wasn’t the demoralizing loss to Michigan, where Denard Robinson ran his way into the record books — and Notre Dame’s end zone with 27 seconds left — to beat the Irish 28-24.

As we slowly unravel the many plot lines that’ll likely collide on Saturday in Notre Dame Stadium, I took to the time machine and rewatched the Irish’s 20-13 victory over Stanford. With No. 7 Notre Dame outlasting the No. 17 Cardinal on a rainy Saturday in South Bend, the instant classic revealed a few things I found surprising.

As the calendar turns to October, the heart of the football season arrives. The next month will likely determine the fate of the Irish, kicking off with Saturday’s matchup against Stanford. The Stanford Daily’s Joseph Beyda gets us ready for the Cardinal.

Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly addressed the media today to discuss Saturday’s showdown with Stanford. And a week after surviving a five-turnover game against Syracuse, Kelly made it pretty clear that he knew that type of effort wasn’t going to cut it.

On second inspection, Notre Dame did some very impressive things in their 31-15 victory over Syracuse. But the head-scratching mistakes that revealed themselves in the season’s fourth game also gave us our first sign of some flaws that many had hoped this young team was past.

Earlier in the week, Brian Kelly was asked about his last time in MetLife Stadium. He almost chuckled to himself, wondering when Notre Dame’s humbling, one-sided defeat to Navy in 2010 would be drudged up again this week.

Returning to the New York metro area for the first time since the Pinstripe Bowl, Notre Dame looks to get to 4-0 on the season with a victory over Syracuse. For the Irish, it’s their first opportunity to play on the road, though lucky to start in the friendly confines of MetLife Stadium in the Meadowlands instead of the Carrier Dome.

This is such a long mailbag I’m just skipping the witty intro. Or even the halfway decent intro. So let’s get right to a tough set of questions.
