Indiana loses to Michigan in classic fashion, but here’s to change. IU Football Post game Recap (a few days late)

Classic Indiana Football all-around in this one. Not only that, the true Hoosier faithful know, this is classic Indiana-Michigan football. We will always give them competition.

Michael Mayer Monster in Vegas as Fighting Irish continue to trend in the right direction. (BYU-ND post short thoughts)

Hey ND fans looks like we may have a football team on our hands. You love to see us go out and get the win against the BYU team and all zero of their fans in attendance. Notre Dame absolutely turned this into the most predominantly Irish crowd for a Shamrock Series game. The whites were popping under the bright lights of Vegas. How far … Continue reading Michael Mayer Monster in Vegas as Fighting Irish continue to trend in the right direction. (BYU-ND post short thoughts)

Sleep well Irish fans, Audric Estime had a monster game. (Notre Dame-UNC post game thoughts)

What a day! What a day! Final score Notre Dame 45, North Carolina 32. Great day to be an Irish fan. Thank God Notre Dame showed up in this much needed come-to-Jesus game. After exorcizing all the demons last week against California, it was great to see Marcus Freeman get his first away victory as head coach for Notre Dame. What was even better to … Continue reading Sleep well Irish fans, Audric Estime had a monster game. (Notre Dame-UNC post game thoughts)

Let’s talk about North Carolina’s offense instead of ours… (3 players to watch out for on UNC)

Feeling a little better after the win this week? I still am entirely disheartened by our offense but I have to say each day I am farther from the Marshall game, I believe I am a little happier. The California win was okay, but now that we got the first win, I need Marcus Freeman’s first good win. A win against UNC would be a … Continue reading Let’s talk about North Carolina’s offense instead of ours… (3 players to watch out for on UNC)

Indiana Football continues tradition of frustratingly exhilarating football. We are 3-0 Hoosier fans!

Every time. Every dang time… I always get my hopes up and think I’m going to see anything other than what I’ve witnessed all my life, why should now be any different. It can never just be easy. It must always be a rollercoaster ride, that somehow this year has kept concluding with a happy ending. It’s a fun time to be a Hoosier fan. … Continue reading Indiana Football continues tradition of frustratingly exhilarating football. We are 3-0 Hoosier fans!

Marcus Freeman exhales, as Notre Dame wins their first. (Notre Dame short Week 3 postgame thoughts)

Good lord, we got one! That game ended with the single largest exhale I think Notre Dame has had in a while. Marcus Freeman has been feeling all the pressure since his abysmal start to his Notre Dame head coaching tenure. Marcus absolutely needed his first win out of this one, and boy did we really try to let the Golden Bears continue the woes … Continue reading Marcus Freeman exhales, as Notre Dame wins their first.

After Marshall ripped our hearts out, let’s see if Drew Pyne can do better. (Short Notre Dame-California pregame thoughts)

So… How was your week?… Well in case you were wondering, I just got back the courage to say anything about my thoughts heading into the California game because my thoughts heading into the Marshall game were me pretty much highlighting 3 Marshall players who then proceeded to outcompete, outplay, and outperform the Irish at every given point in last Saturday’s heartbreaking (and very eye-opening … Continue reading After Marshall ripped our hearts out, let’s see if Drew Pyne can do better.

Short thoughts heading into Marshall (Notre Dame pre-game Week 2)

I’ve had sufficient time to let the last loss marinate. After enough time to console myself (as is the case following any ND loss), I am happy to have tested our metal right out the gate. These big early season non-conference matchups are our true barometer for where we as a program sit. And after letting the initial crushing feeling subside, I’m fairly happy with … Continue reading Short thoughts heading into Marshall (Notre Dame pre-game Week 2)

The Mourning After: ND loses after holding their own for 3 quarters. (ND week 1 recap)

Well… First off.. ESPN on ABC ain’t really our thing. We’re more of an NBC crowd. I’ll tell ya… I felt really good after 3 quarters. Like. Really good. That the Irish were finally going to prove the haters wrong. That we were going to justify our independent status. I thought our side was winning most of the game at the line of scrimmage(except for … Continue reading The Mourning After: ND loses after holding their own for 3 quarters. (ND week 1 recap)
