  1. Spring practice video breakdown: Part five

    Apr 9, 2013, 5:36 PM EDT

    Discover BCS National Championship - Notre Dame v Alabama

    With the Irish getting some scrimmage time in earlier this week, there’s a very good chance Brian Kelly and his staff are getting to know the type of football team that they have on their hands. In the case of Everett Golson, that might be a player that’s advanced leaps and bounds. While we all…

  2. Spring Solutions: Quarterback

    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…

  3. Pregame Six Pack: Staring down Stanford

    The Stanford Cardinal have quite a feather in their cap. Entering the season, they’re the only team in college football history to defeat Notre Dame and USC in three consecutive seasons. David Shaw’s squad has already extended their streak against the Trojans. They’ll look to do the same against the Irish, running their record winning…

  4. As winning continues, growing with Golson gets harder

    After a week off, Notre Dame remains in the national conversation, ranked No. 9 in this week’s AP poll and set to play an offensively talented, but defensively flawed team in Miami at Soldier Field. But after watching the Hurricanes light up the scoreboard the past few weeks and the Notre Dame offense grind to…

  5. Tuesdays with BK: Purdue edition

    Everett Golson

    If you expected head coach Brian Kelly to be excited about Notre Dame jumping into both the AP and Coaches Poll at No. 22, you might be disappointed. When asked if it was something he paid attention to, Notre Dame’s head coach was pretty succinct. “White noise,” Kelly said. “White noise.” With in-state rival Purdue…

  6. It’s official: Everett Golson is the Irish’s starting QB

    Aug 23, 2012, 6:54 PM EDT

    Everett Golson Spring Game

    Brian Kelly met with the assembled media and confirmed what I tweeted this morning: Sophomore Everett Golson will be the Irish’s starting quarterback. “It was a tough decision, but Everett won the starting job,” Kelly said after practice tonight. “If everything is going the way we planned it, he will play the whole game.” Golson’s…

  7. Announced or not: Golson is the man for the job

    Everett Golson

    With classes at Notre Dame started and preparation for Navy underway, Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly will meet with the assembled meeting for his weekly Tuesday press conference at noon. And while there’s no indication that he’s ready to name a signal-caller for the season opener against the Midshipmen, it’s time to give up…

  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: 15-11

    Now that we’ve got our math mistakes cleaned up, let’s get back to some analysis of the Top 25 so far. The inclusion of Zeke Motta at No. 25 makes plenty of sense, and if there’s a breakout senior waiting to make his name, Motta is a pretty good candidate. Playing in the shadow of…

  10. Irish eyes will be on the quarterbacks

    Apr 21, 2012, 12:02 PM EDT

    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. With redshirt off, intrigue surrounds Golson

    Everett Golson

    Just about every Irish fan wondered what the quarterbacks not on the field could do for the Irish last season. With the depth chart thrown into disarray after two quarters of football, a chorus of support erupted from all corners of ND nation, with calls for Rees, Crist, Hendrix and Golson heard amongst the shouting.…

  13. 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…

  14. Pregame Six Pack: Primetime at Purdue

    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…

    Are you talked out yet? Between Charlie Brown, Eleven for ’11, USF previews, and a nice little sprinkling of recruiting news, it’s been a busy week. As we finally complete our crawl to Friday, the pregame heat has been turned up. Literally. It feels like someone left the oven open in the Midwest, and as…

  16. 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…

    Armed with a full 85-man roster and a depth chart that’s finally representative of a top 25 college football program, Brian Kelly and the Irish have the luxury of not needing to force freshmen into the lineup this season. That certainly wasn’t the case for the Irish last year, where Kelly opened the season with…

  18. Help wanted: All options being explored on punt returns

    Being ranked 101st in the nation is never a good thing. But that’s what the Irish got out of their punt return unit, the weakest special teams grouping under Mike Elston’s watch. Notre Dame failed to create anything in the return game, with Armando Allen’s 38-yard return in the season opener against Purdue the only…

    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…

    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…

    Offensive coordinator Charley Molnar, now with a load slightly lighter thanks to Ed Warinner’s promotion to run game coordinator, talked about his quarterbacks yesterday, shedding light on the four-man race this spring. Much was made of the decision to roll four quarterbacks, with Andrew Hendrix and Everett Golson joining part-time starters Dayne Crist and Tommy…
