  1. Pregame Six Pack: Showdown with the Seminoles

    Oct 17, 2014, 12:41 PM EDT

    Rice v Notre Dame

    It wasn’t too long ago that an undefeated Notre Dame team was about to head into some of the most hostile territory in all of college football. A double-digit underdog for a primetime, ESPN game, many expected Brian Kelly’s flawed, but surprisingly undefeated squad to be no match for their opponent. Then the Irish pulled away in a tight game and beat Oklahoma 30-13.

  2. Holtz talks candidly about life at the top of Notre Dame

    Lou Holtz

    For most of the younger generation, especially those suiting up and playing football, Lou Holtz isn’t known as a football coach, but as Dr. Lou, the funny old fella on ESPN that’s got a catchy phrase for just about everything. While the ESPN Holtz has become almost a caricature of himself, and the mantel piece…

  3. Wood and Gray are running to a historic season

    Cierre Wood Pitt

    Tango and Cash. Turner and Hooch. Murtaugh and Riggs. HollyWood and Meatball. The last duo might not have the notoriety yet, but it hasn’t been for a lack of effort by Cierre Wood and Jonas Gray. At the midway point of the 2011 season, Wood (nickname still pending) and Gray (Meatball has already stuck) haven’t reached…

  4. Even with love for Irish, Lou Holtz picking South Florida

    Even with his son Skip returning to South Bend to coach against a team he supported as a student, player and coach, you won’t find Lou Holtz in South Bend next weekend. He’ll stay as far away from South Bend as his day job will take him, as Dr. Lou will stay with his brethren…

  5. Expectations all hinge on the man behind center

    It’s getting difficult to ignore the trajectory this offseason is taking. Quite simply, Year Two of the Brian Kelly era has expectations. Great expectations. Eric Hansen expectations. Even Mark May expectations. Because it’s July, it’s that time of year where we spend most of our time analyzing the past in hopes of predicting the future.…

  6. ESPN’s Rece Davis and… Mark May to host Irish Legends golf tourney

    Rece Lou May

    You’ve got to hand it to this Brian Kelly guy. It’s almost as if he’s been reading Irish message-boards these past few years, identifying the collective thorns in the side of ND Nation and pulling them out one by one. Public Enemy No. 1? Urban Meyer — the head coach had his “dream job” on…

    Former Notre Dame coach and current pop football psychologist Lou Holtz was back on campus at Notre Dame for his foundation this week and entertained a small group of reporters. Here’s what he said: Talking about his current schedule: “One step from suicide, two steps ahead of the posse. I’ve been everywhere except to bed,…

  8. Stepping up… The defensive line

    Mar 2, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

    As the Irish prepare to shift philosophies back to a 3-4 defense, no position seems better equipped for the change than the defensive line. With Kapron Lewis-Moore, Ian Williams, and Ethan Johnson, the Irish have three returning starters that played significant minutes, and also fit the physical dimensions needed to play in defensive coordinator Bob…

    For those of you reading this at work, you probably have a pretty relaxed IT filter on your computer. Join me and a few thousand other people and stream the USA hockey game online at NBCOlympics.com. Honestly, nobody even forced me to tell you this, I’m just giving people a friendly reminder to tune in…
