    Michael FloydA

    Let’s be clear. Michael Floyd is a long way from appearing in the home opener against South Florida in September. But today, as I reported via Twitter, he cleared a remarkable hurdle.

    I’ve mentioned Ian Williams’ draft diary at the South Bend Tribune before, but you really should be checking out his updates as he preps for the upcoming NFL Draft.

    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.

    As he does every year around this time of year, Matt Hinton at his Dr. Saturday blog takes a comprehensive look at the “recruiting-industrial complex,” his way of supporting the “premium information” recruiting machine that drives a multi-million dollar industry and makes celebrities of teenage football players while turning grown up football fans like us…

    Jan 24, 2011, 12:18 AM EST

    Harrison Smith

    Saturday’s Notre Dame Football Awards Show gave us plenty to discuss, but the headline was probably Brian Kelly naming Michael Floyd and Harrison Smith the captains of the 2011 Fighting Irish. For Smith, that means his application for a fifth year has been accepted. For Floyd, it’s a permanent accolade after being named game captain…

    Brian Kelly addressed the media as he discussed the Irish schedule heading into their December 31st date with the Miami Hurricanes in El Paso.
