    While Andrew Hendrix and Gunner Kiel weren’t able to win the starting quarterback job at Notre Dame, they look to have made good on their decisions to transfer.

  2. Last look back: Quarterback

    Jan 22, 2014, 10:13 PM EST

    Rees USC

    Nobody expects Irish fans to write a final love letter to Tommy Rees. But the senior quarterback, who played significant minutes in all four of Brian Kelly’s seasons in South Bend, is the quarterback of record for the Kelly era. None of that is Rees’s fault. And in some ways, it’s not really Kelly’s fault…

  3. Hendrix takes aim at starting QB job at Miami (OH)

    Jan 8, 2014, 12:17 PM EST

    USC Notre Dame Football

    It appears that Chuck Martin has found his starting quarterback. And it’s a quarterback that he knows quite well. The Cincinnati Enquirer has confirmed the already expected news that senior quarterback Andrew Hendrix will transfer to Miami (Ohio), to play out his eligibility for Martin, his former offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach. That news was…

  4. Irish offense catches USC with an up-tempo attack

    Rees USC

    In the afterglow (or more appropriately, aftermath) of Notre Dame’s 14-10 victory over USC, most of the talk on the offensive side of the ball has been about Andrew Hendrix‘s struggles and the hit that knocked Tommy Rees out of the game. But before either of those things occurred, the Irish offense had a breakthrough.…

  5. Given the chance, Hendrix finally ready for opportunity

    Andrew Hendrix Stanford

    For Notre Dame fans, Andrew Hendrix has felt like an enigma. With the tangible skill-set of a star quarterback, Irish fans have watched and waited patiently for the Cincinnati native to work his way into the starting lineup, where he’d surely be able to utilize his strong throwing arm, powerful running style, and intellect that’ll…

  6. Offseason cheat sheet: Quarterbacks

    Aug 15, 2013, 3:24 PM EST

    Rees Kelly

    From the looks of it, more than a few Notre Dame fans have come out of hibernation. After last year’s dream season came to a crashing halt, it’s more than understandable that some Irish fans decided to take a few months off before returning to the fray. But that hasn’t stopped us. So with just…

  7. Spring Solutions: Quarterback

    Mar 12, 2013, 11:42 PM EST

    Rees Golson Kiel

    It’s been a long time since Notre Dame’s quarterback position has had the type of stability that it now enjoys. So while Brian Kelly likely touted the idea that every quarterback would be competing for the starting job, you can’t blame redshirt freshman Gunner Kiel for reading the writing on the wall. With Everett Golson…

  8. And so it begins: BK talks 2012 season

    Brian Kelly podium

    Brian Kelly doesn’t officially kick off the 2012 football season until tomorrow, when his opening press conference takes place before the start of training camp. But that didn’t stop talk of the quarterbacking race from starting early. Joining WSBT’s Sportsbeat with Darin Pritchett and Eric Hansen, Kelly answered questions from fans all across the country…

  9. Counting down the Irish: 25-21– RECOUNT UPDATE!

    Robby Toma

    RECOUNT UPDATE: If there was any question whether I’ve been out of the finance game too long, your fearless leader messed up his Excel spreadsheet and jacked up the rankings. This changes a few of the players we’ve tallied and puts Zeke Motta in at No. 25. My sincere apologies. *** It’s time to unveil…

  10. Irish eyes will be on the quarterbacks

    Apr 21, 2012, 12:02 PM EST

    NDFB practice

    Anyone that expected a tidy conclusion to the open four-man quarterbacking battle taking place under the close watch of Brian Kelly and new offensive coordinator Chuck Martin should’ve thought twice before making that assumption. With Kelly entering his third year in South Bend, a season that’s largely been a sink-or-swim proposition for Irish head coaches,…

    With one third of spring practice finished, the team at UND.com gave us a much anticipated update on the quarterback battle, the main storyline of spring practice. With some nice footage of all four quarterbacks competing, it’s clear that head coach Brian Kelly and offensive coordinator Chuck Martin are truly going back to the basics…

  12. Five things we learned: Florida State 18, Notre Dame 14

    Floyd Florida State Champs

    If you could boil down one game to encapsulate a season, you might have something that looks like the Champs Sports Bowl. During Notre Dame’s 18-14 loss, the Irish turned just about every conceivable emotion for a football fan on its head– ecstasy to agony, confidence to frustration, bravado to helplessness. At times, the Irish…

  13. Hendrix is ready to run the entire offense

    Dec 26, 2011, 6:12 PM EST

    Andrew Hendrix Stanford

    The evolution of Andrew Hendrix hasn’t been a gradual process. It started that way, with the sophomore quarterback getting his first snaps in situational packages, running the option and throwing the occasional high-percentage pass as he worked into the game plan as a complementary part to quarterback Tommy Rees. Then the Stanford game happened. It…

    Beating Florida State in the Champs Sports Bowl is a big deal for Brian Kelly and the Fighting Irish. His decision to keep Tommy Rees the starting quarterback proves that. In a bowl game that most fans see as equal parts rivalry and exhibition game, the Kelly regime needs a victory to keep the football…

    Andrew Hendrix Stanford

    When you laid out the checklist of things Notre Dame needed to do to beat No. 4 Stanford on Saturday night, the objectives were quite clear. Limit mistakes, win the battle at the line of scrimmage, and eliminate turnovers — bedrock principles for winning football games. Yet from the opening minutes of the Irish’s 28-14…

  16. The Andrew Hendrix experience

    Oct 11, 2011, 1:14 AM EST

    Andrew Hendrix

    After a season and a half of waiting, Irish fans finally got to see quarterback Andrew Hendrix in action. Through a recruitment process that started with Charlie Weis, ended with Brian Kelly and had a brief dalliance with Florida coach Urban Meyer, Hendrix was always a player that piqued the interest of Notre Dame fans…

    With the Irish in an early 0-2 hole this season, most Notre Dame fans assumed the Irish would right the ship. But history didn’t necessarily share that rosy outlook.  Seven Irish teams have stumbled out of the gates in their opening two games. Only two of the teams have come back to have winning seasons,…

    Four down, eight to go. After digging themselves into an improbable 0-2 hole, the Irish are ready to push their way above .500, a long slog back after two really disheartening losses. They’ll have their chance to do it in primetime Saturday night, with the Irish and Boilermakers kicking off at Rose-Ade Stadium at 8:00…

  19. Dayne Crist named Notre Dame’s starting quarterback

    When Notre Dame takes the field to play South Florida on September 3, they’ll do it with Dayne Crist at the helm. After two weeks of solid competition that saw Crist and Tommy Rees separate themselves from sophomore Andrew Hendrix and freshman Everett Golson, head coach Brian Kelly tapped Crist as his starter, in a…

    As Brian Kelly stepped to the podium this afternoon, it had been 217 days since he led the Notre Dame football team in a contest that mattered. Last we saw Kelly’s Fighting Irish, they were embarrassing a former rival in the Sun Bowl, jumping all over a wayward Miami Hurricane squad that was adrift after…

    Compare today to running an offseason marathon. No doubt, we are slogging along here, but the good news is we’ve just passed the 13-mile marker. We’re more than half-way there, and while that terrible realization that you’ve still got 13 miles left to run might cross your mind, the very good news is that we’re…

    It’ll likely be months until anybody is certain what the fate of Ohio State football will be, but that hasn’t stopped people from talking about it. If you’re looking for some context, Michigan blog MGoBlog.com revels in the comparison to USC (their conclusion: “Yeah, you guys are screwed), a benchmark that’ll likely be referenced a…

    What would we do without Ian Williams? As much as I’m ready to banish the idea of Todd McShay and Mel Kiper from my head, the upcoming NFL Draft means more weekly musings from Williams as he prepares for the NFL Draft at the South Bend Tribune. Since you guys should just go over there…

    The 27,863 fans that paid to see the Blue-Gold game in person might be thawed out and dry by now. For the rest of you that either skipped the festivities or watched on TV, trying to quantify what you saw and reach some conclusions might be a little difficult. First, let’s cross off a few…

    SOUTH BEND, Ind. — The good news? Notre Dame won, with the Gold beating the Blue 17-14. The better news? Nobody got hurt. The best news? The kids are going to be alright. If you were looking to draw conclusions after the spring game, you might be out of luck. Like last year, the Irish…
