Domer NBA Head Coach -- 4-0 Start to Career!

Former Notre Dame basketball player and now Head Coach of the New Orleans Hornets -- Monty Williams -- has his team off to a 4-0 start.  The best start in franchise history!  The youngest head coach in the NBA, Williams (39) only needs to win the next ten -- to surpass Lawrence Frank's 13-0 start (the NBA record for first year head coaches) with the New Jersey Nets in 2004.  Here's an interview that Monty Williams gave to NBA.COM before the season started:


Notre Dame Recruiting Video

My Notre Dame alum son -- sent me an email last night with a link to this video.  It's a seventeen minute "recruiting" video put together by the Admissions team at the University of Notre Dame.  It's very well done -- and it's the second time in the last ten months that we've highlighted this video on the ND GO IRISH BLOG.  If you love Notre Dame -- you'll love this...  Enjoy!


Muffet's Irish -- Hang 102 on Michigan Tech!

Ouch...  The 12th ranked Fighting Irish women's basketball team tipped off the 2010-2011 season last night with a 102 - 30 exhibition win over Michigan Tech University.  Notre Dame started off the game on a 17 - 0 run and they never looked back -- as every player scored on their roster.  The regular season starts November 12th when the Irish take on New Hampshire at home.  Here's a link to the South Bend Tribune story from last night's game:


Irish LAX -- "Alumni Networking Day"

The junior and senior members of the University of Notre Dame Lacrosse team, along with Head Coach Kevin Corrigan, took a day trip to New York City during fall break for their "alumni networking day."  The day started at the New York Stock Exchage  NYSE where they were official guests of Morgan Stanley, followed by a breakfast hosted by Deutsche Bank -- and the ringing of the NYSE's opening bell.  They then moved uptown to meet with Notre Dame lacrosse alums at Black Rock and at MTV.  The day ended with their visit to NASDAQ in Times Square -- see photo -- where they viewed the closing bell ceremonies.  Sounds like a great day!
