Notre Dame opened up training camp yesterday, and there’s plenty of video and photos from Day One to get you up to speed. With jersey changes, a young roster and essentially a new defense breaking in, there’s plenty more to watch other than a quarterback battle for the ages.
Let’s get all the great video/tweets/vines and highlights from Saturday’s workout.
First, I’ll just say it: These new @NDFootball tweets are pretty awesome. So if that’s what Bleacher Report’s input is doing, I’m all for it.
And my personal favorite…
Not sure about you guys, but those get me kinda fired up.
Here’s a bunch of different looks at practice No. 1, thanks to WatchND, Irish247 and Irish Illustrated.
Here’s BK post-practice:
Irish Sports Daily gives us a closer look at middle linebacker Nyles Morgan—ready to step in and be the defense’s anchor after two seasons as Joe Schmidt’s apprentice.
They also caught up with Tarean Folston, who gave a very promising update on how he feels heading into camp.
“100 percent, all the way. Mentally, physically,” Folston said. “In the Blue-Gold game, I was still lacking some of that mental toughness, I was still kind of in pain. Right now, I’m feeling great. No knee brace, I’m 100 percent there mentally.”
Over at Blue & Gold, we hear from Max Redfield, who was back in the starting lineup as the Irish ran out their first-team defense. As Brian Kelly stressed, it’s only Day One. But Max is saying all the right things.
Meanwhile, Durham Smythe‘s roll just got bigger with the loss of Alizé Jones—and he talked about the bonding experience the tight ends are having with those wonderful mustaches.
AND THE TWEETS:
Here’s some observations that I think might be worth keeping an eye on.
