Brian Kelly on THE HUGE SHOW

Notre Dame Head Football Coach was a guest on The Huge Show -- a sports radio program on WBBL 107.3 FM in west Michigan. You'll love his answer to the question: "Will you win a National Championship at Notre Dame?" -- Here's a link to the interview:


Bobby Taylor -- Seeking NFL Comeback?

Rumors persist that former Notre Dame All American Bobby Taylor, is working out in Houston, TX -- preparing to make a comeback. Taylor, now 36 years-old, last played in the NFL for the Seattle Seahwaks in the 2004 season. Prior to his one season with the Seahawks, Taylor played for the Philadelphia Eagles, the team that drafted him in the second round of the 1995 NFL Draft. A corner, the 6'-3" Taylor was named NFL All Pro after the 2002 season -- and is reportedly seeking to make a NFL roster this time as a safety. Well liked by teammates, Taylor received the Ed Block Courage Award in 1998. The Ed Block Courage Award is an annual award presented to selected players in the National Football League (NFL), who are voted by their teammates as role models of inspiration, sportsmanship, and courage. Out of Longview, Texas -- Taylor received the Jack Tatum Trophy in 2004 as the top defensive back in college football. He's the only Notre Dame football player to be so honored. Bobby's Dad, Robert Taylor, won a Gold & Silver Medal in the 1972 Summer Olympics. While it's not entirely crazy to think a 36-year old could play in the NFL (Brett Favre??) -- playing a "back" position in an NFL defense, at this age, would be unique. We wish you well Bobby Taylor!
