Things look different! Let me tell you why.

You went to sleep with a smile on your face after Notre Dame’s dominant 38-3 victory over Texas. You woke up and came back to see something… well, very different.

Welcome to the redesigned digital home of NBC Sports and the new home of Inside the Irish. Don’t worry. It’s still me, Keith, writing from Inside the Irish HQ about all things Notre Dame football. But now we have an adaptable, responsive layout that should give you an optimal experience no matter what type of device (desktop, tablet or mobile) you’re using.

Yes, I know the front page is different. (Believe me, I’m still getting used to it, too.) So spend the long weekend poking around.

Some benefits:

  • No longer will you need to click around from story to story. Articles now flow together with “infinite scrolling” and “story explorer.”
  • All the great video content that NBC Sports is producing will be seamlessly integrated, with a standalone tab taking you to the Notre Dame video homepage.
  • You’ll have access to scores and news from around college football, along with links to the NBC Sports Live Extra programming.

For those of you that often head here on your iPhone or after clicking a link from Twitter, you’ll be happy that you don’t have to squint your eyes and adjust your screen to read the story. And for those of you who come to hang out in the comments to discuss the latest and the greatest, we’ll make sure those are working right for you, too.

There’s a joke here about change being easy, especially when you’re talking to Notre Dame fans. But after having the same look since we debuted before the 2009 season, things are different around here.

That’s a good thing.
