If you're like me -- you thought the sweater that Coach Kelly wore at last night's game was quite sharp. Well, I searched the Hammes Notre Dame Bookstore website and found it. Here's a link to their website and the specific Adidas sweater the Notre Dame Coaching Staff wore against Boston College on ABC last night:

The Fighting Irish's Head Coach, Brian Kelly -- met with the media today for a little more than seventeen minutes. He took their questions concerning last night's 31-13 win over Boston College. Here's a link to an AUDIO recording of this conversation. Kelly also sat down with UND.COM's Jack Nolan for their weekly Sunday conversation -- here's a link to that as well:

Former Notre Dame QB, Jimmy Clausen -- threw his first NFL TD pass today against the Super Bowl Champion New Orleans Saints. Clausen's TD pass went for 55 yards to the Panthers' RB Jonathan Stewart. He stepped up in the pocket and threw a strike! Congratulations Jimmy! I trust it will be just the first of many for Clausen in a Carolina Panther uniform. For the game -- Clausen was 11-21 for 146 yards in their 16-14 loss. His Passer Rating was 90.6 which was just higher than the Saint's Drew Brees who's rating was 90.2 (Photo on left is Clausen celebrating TD pass with Stewart, photo on right, Clausen has the ball he threw for the TD). Here's a link to the video to Jimmy's TD pass -- a moment he'll never forget!

Here's a link to Kirk Herbstreit's ESPN -- yeah, the network who employs a guy who said Notre Dame has a "high school defense." Hey Herbie -- the Irish held BC to five yards of rushing last night! FIVE YARDS!

Here's the link to Coach Kelly's post-game press conference -- after Notre Dame's 31-13 victory over Boston College. This was Kelly's first road victory with the Irish and it came in his home town. That's freshman Prince Shembo in the photo getting one of his two QB sacks in the game -- the first of his career! There's a second link to Highlights from the game with Don Criqui's radio call:
