    Purdue v Notre Dame

    While most eyes are focused on the battle at quarterback between Everett Golson and Malik Zaire, the preparations for LSU will also be critical along the offensive line. The extra practices will give Brian Kelly and Harry Hiestand time to evaluate their starting five, with changes that could have both short and long-term impacts.

  2. Irish A-to-Z: Matt Hegarty

    BYU v Notre Dame

    Matt Hegarty’s football career almost ended when a stroke suffered during a November practice in 2012 revealed two small holes in his heart. Healthy again and a key contributor late in 2013, our next stop on the Irish A-to-Z train takes a look at the New Mexico native and his road back onto the playing field.

    It may not feel like it, but spring isn’t too far away. For Notre Dame and Brian Kelly’s football team, spring practice is starting earlier than every, kicking off in early March. The rationale for moving up the calendar isn’t 100 percent clear, but what is certain are the steps the Irish need to take…

    For the fourth straight season, Notre Dame sent its seniors out with a victory, a wonderful change from the Charlie Weis era where the Irish lost their two final home games in devastatingly painful fashion. But on Saturday, the Irish put together a complete victory, a late-season win that felt like a great pitcher grinding…

    Matt Hegarty

    After missing much of last year with a mysterious illness that shut him down for the season, the future of Matt Hegarty‘s time at Notre Dame looked to be in question. The one-time blue chip recruit, who had turned down offers from USC, Texas, Oklahoma and Oregon to sign with the Irish, looked to be…

  6. Hegarty ready to watch and learn during freshman season

    I’ve been pretty open about Notre Dame’s need to embrace redshirts. Whether they continue to ignore the term, a fifth-year of college football is an incredibly important opportunity for not just linemen, but also skill position players as well. (If you don’t believe me, consider Harrison Smith’s transformation from defensive liability to team captain and…

  7. Signing Day 2011: Power

    (You’ll read about a dozen columns talking about the three position grouping distinctions and how Brian Kelly and his staff use them, giving Skill, Big Skill, and Power the opportunity to become this year’s RKGs as we meander into the offseason. Just remember, I started these columns before BK re-introduced it during his press conference.)…

    The letters-of-intent are flying into The Gug now, with Brian Hardin officially rescuing a member of the ND compliance office from her snowed in house. Here’s her official explanation from UND.com’s Live Blog: Hey everyone this is Jen from ND Compliance. Sorry for the delay on approving the NLI’s. My road is drifted shut. We…

  9. One of these guys is Stephon Tuitt

    Here’s a hint: He’s the giant wearing No. 7 that’s about a head taller than the rest of them. BlueandGold.com had a video crew at the Team USA practices where Tuitt, Matt Hegarty, Anthony Rabasa, and George and Josh Atkinson are practicing with the USA All-Star team, and it’s startling to see just how massive…
