Notre Dame fans won't soon forget Tom Clement's pass from the end-zone to Robin Weber in the 1973 Sugar Bowl against Bear Bryant's Crimson Tide -- clinching the win and a National Championship for the Fighting Irish! This Sunday -- Tom wasn't starring on the field -- but his pupil was... Clements is the QB coach of the Super Bowl Champion Green Bay Packers. He didn't get any mention during Sunday's game -- but, this NFL veteran (18 years as a NFL coach) -- was in the ear of his star QB, all game long. Congratulations Tom -- you now have a National Championship ring -- and a Super Bowl ring. Not many can say that! Here's a link to a story about Clements and Rodgers relationship:

Mike Brey's #7 Fighting Irish take on Rick Pitino's #15 Louisville Cardinals tonight at a sold-out Purcell Pavillion -- and on ESPNU at 7 PM EST. It's a big game for the Irish as they fight for the Big East Title and a top seed in the NCAA Tournament. I'll be in the stands tonight -- rooting on the Irish and reminding Rick Pitino of his prediction (see the story below)! Here's a link to UND.COM's preview of the game:
