In a game that the "studio host for ESPN" was giving to North Carolina State after just twenty minutes -- the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame fought back from a dreadful first half (down 18 points) to force the game into OT with a last second tip-in by VJ Beachem!
Then, the IRISH finished the job winning 81 - 78 in overtime -- A HUGE WIN!!!
Former Notre Dame student-athletes Golden Tate and Zack Martin were selected by former Miami Hurricane and Dallas Cowboy Michael Irvin for his team in today's NFL Pro Bowl in Phoenix. Looks like Golden may have missed the team photo...
They will be wearing the "black uniforms" in today's game.
Notre Dame tight-end Ben Koyack caught two passes for 19 yards and a TD in yesterday's Senior Bowl played in Mobile, AL. Here's a replay of the TD -- along with a second link to a story earlier this week about Koyack in the Chicago Tribune.
Nothing like that Notre Dame GOLD HELMET at these all-star games...
Ever wonder what a coaching contract looks like for a big-time football program?
Here's your chance to look at a copy of the seven-year contract Jim Harbaugh signed with the University of Michigan. As you'll see in the story -- and in the contract -- Harbaugh is guaranteed more than $5.7 million a year.
And, he can buy out his contract -- for a lot less than I expected.
It was a year ago this very morning that Notre Dame's Jack Swarbrick and Under Armour's Kevin Plank stood at a podium (see link below) to announce the "most valuable shoe and apparel contract in college sports history."
In the 365 days since, Under Armour's "market cap" has increased dramatically. Take a look at the growth:
January 21, 2014: $8.96 billion
January 21, 2015: $13.99 billion
Under Armour's "market cap" has grown 56.1% -- since the announcement of the Notre Dame relationship.
Happy Anniversary to the Under Armour shareholders!
