Hanging out with Jack Swarbrick

24 Comments

It’s been a busy summer for Notre Dame athletic director Jack Swarbrick. In between extending basketball coaches Muffet McGraw and Mike Brey’s contracts and reworking college football’s postseason, it didn’t seem like much of a vacation for the man in charge of Irish athletics.

With football season right around the corner and training camp about to start next week, Swarbrick’s year is about to get much busier. But before that kicks off, our friends at UND.com are hosting a state-of-the-union like conversation with Swarbrick, where “representatives from several prominent ND online fan communities” will have their chance to discuss all things Notre Dame athletics.

I’m lucky enough to have one of those spots in the conversation.

Here are the details:

Tuesday, July 31st at 7:30 pm EST
Google+ Hangout with Jack Swarbrick
Where: Notre Dame Athletics’ Google+ Page (You need a Google+ account to access)
Moderator: Jack Nolan
Participants:
Keith Arnold, NBCSports.com
Mike Coffey, NDNation.com
Ryan Ritter, HerLoyalSons.com
Lisa Kelly, Bridget McGuire’s Filling Station
Ed Jordanich, Dome and Domer Podcast
Eric Murtaugh, One Foot Down
Pat Mitsch, Blue-Gray Sky

As I like to consider myself a representative of my constituents, I’d like to open up the comments below for your questions for Swarbrick. They don’t need to be football specific, but I’ll probably lean towards a football question, since that’s what we focus on here 52 weeks a year.

(This is also the part where I remind you to save your wise cracks for a different website. Serious questions only, please.)

With seven participants, it’ll be a cozy “Hangout,” and a terrific opportunity to get a chance to see behind the curtain of Notre Dame athletics.

So best question below gets asked (the judge being me) and I look forward to seeing you all on the interwebs tomorrow evening.
