  1. Slaughter denied sixth year

    Jamoris Slaughter

    Safety Jamoris Slaughter‘s career at Notre Dame has official come to an end. The NCAA denied Slaughter’s appeal to return to the Irish for a sixth season, the university announced in a statement. The six-foot, 200-pound safety from Georgia, who has already earned his degree at Notre Dame in Industrial Design, will shift his focus…

  2. Eight Irish seniors get invite to NFL Scouting Combine

    NFL Scouting Combine

    While the excitement of Signing Day is still lingering, eight Notre Dame seniors received a very important invitation yesterday that will play a huge factor in their professional careers. The NFL’s annual scouting combine in Indianapolis released their official invite list and it was filled with Irish players. Here are the following players who will…

  3. Counting down the Irish: 10-6

    We’re heading down the stretch in our annual countdown of the Irish roster. If numbers 15 to 11 were all about bottled promise, 10-6 has a tried and true feel to it. After a youth movement was largely responsible for the upper echelon of this list, this group has a veteran feel to it. How…

  4. Russell and Neal will get looks at cornerback

    There’s no question that Notre Dame lacks quality depth at cornerback heading into the season. Needing to replace both Robert Blanton and Gary Gray, the Irish will look to first year starter Bennett Jackson on the short-side of the field as Lo Wood and Josh Atkinson will take their competition for the field cornerback position…

  5. Pregame Six Pack: Blue & Gold (and a certain Irish victory)

    Apr 20, 2012, 6:11 AM EDT

    Blue-Gold-27

    It may count the same as the other fourteen practices allotted by NCAA rules during the spring, but there will be plenty of eyeballs on the last official workout of the school year for the Irish. With a national broadcast on NBC Sports Network kicking off at 1:30 p.m. ET, a spring spent mostly working…

  6. Practice Report: Day Nine update

    Slaughter Utah

    More than a few eyebrows were raised when Jamoris Slaughter was seen taking reps at cornerback yesterday, cross-training at a cover position while Austin Collinsworth took first-team reps with the safeties. The move makes sense on the surface, with Slaughter’s versatility and cover skills always one of his assets, and Lo Wood not yet proven…

  7. Filling holes: Safety

    Slaughter Utah

    Just a year after Harrison Smith played the role of ball hawk, the senior safety was snake-bit. Seven interceptions in 2010 had Irish fans thinking Notre Dame’s defense had a gold-glove center-fielder. But in 2011, while the defense had a more mature and comfortable Smith roaming the secondary, the interceptions just didn’t come. Smith had…

  8. Fifth year candidates begin to emerge

    News broke earlier in the week that walk-on special teams ace Chris Salvi was being rewarded with a scholarship. Now Eric Hansen of the South Bend Tribune has the list of fifth-year candidates that will go before the Faculty Board on Athletics for approval to return for next season. Hansen reports that six seniors are…

  9. The good, the bad, and the ugly: Notre Dame vs. Navy

    Jonas Gray Navy

    If there’s criticism, it should be of the constructive manner this afternoon, a day after the Irish let go of some frustration on Navy. The 56-14 thumping was the biggest beating of Navy since Tony Rice, Mark Green and Ricky Watters beat up the Midshipmen in 1987. The victory was a complete mauling — with…

  10. Eleven for ’11: Keys for the Fighting Irish

    Sep 2, 2011, 2:34 AM EDT

    Dayne Crist

    Everybody knows Michael Floyd, Manti Te’o and Harrison Smith. While those three will likely have a large hand in determining Notre Dame’s fate, the Irish’s three All-American candidates can only do so much for a roster that’s finally at a full allotment of 85 scholarship players. As the No. 16 Irish get ready to kick…

  11. Fox edges Calabrese at LB, Slaughter over Motta at FS

    Aug 24, 2011, 1:03 AM EDT

    Jamoris Slaughter

    While the news didn’t trend on Twitter like Dayne Crist did nationally this afternoon (another example of Notre Dame’s irrelevance in college football I guess), one surprise in Brian Kelly‘s press conference was that junior Dan Fox unseated Carlo Calabrese as the starting Will linebacker next to Manti Te’o. Calabrese spent the lion’s share of…

  12. Badger weighing early return from Mormon mission

    Aug 18, 2011, 1:10 PM EDT

    Chris Badger

    With the Irish’s depth at safety a question mark for the second straight year, Chris Badger, a Notre Dame safety that chose his Mormon mission before ever playing a down for the Irish, could be back in South Bend earlier than expected. Badger’s decision to walk away from the Irish after participating in spring practice…

  13. Spring practice heads for the home stretch

    With the Blue-Gold game set for this Saturday, Brian Kelly and the Fighting Irish are down to their final four football sessions until preseason camp in August. Let’s take a quick look at a few of the battles that caught our interest: At ‘Dog’ linebacker, it’s a two-man race, with sophomores Prince Shembo and Danny…

  14. Is SI really jumping on the ND bandwagon?

    Kelly Sombrero

    Maybe it’s the dearth of college football news after a roller coaster Signing Day, but Stewart Mandel over at SI.com had an incredibly complimentary column about Brian Kelly’s recruiting class and how it could produce a “return to prominence.” (Apparently, SI is gun shy of using the ol’ “Return to Glory” slogan, too. Can’t say…

  15. How we got here: Injuries

    CristKyleCrutch

    There’s a tricky line to draw when you write about injuries. They are a certainty in football (not unlike death and taxes off the field), but there is also a line where you’ve got to take injuries into account when adjusting your expectations for a team’s ability to perform. There’s a school of thought that…

  16. Stepping up… The Secondary

    Feb 23, 2010, 7:30 AM EDT

    If you missed our first two installments of “Stepping Up,” where we talked about the offensive line and the wide receivers, be sure to check them out. It wasn’t hard to identify the secondary as a massive problem area last season. A perceived area of strength going into the season, the Irish defensive backs were…
