Temple University -- the college home of Bill Cosby -- announced yesterday that they had signed a three game contract with the University of Notre Dame. The announcement didn't come in the form of a press release -- it came in the form of an EVENT. Yeah, Notre Dame football is irrelevant. When was the last time you saw a school do this? I'm sure Florida Gator football fans didn't like seeing Temple's new coach (Steve Addazio) praise Notre Dame. The event was complete with a Leprechaun mascot -- and the ND gold helmet. Enjoy.

Add the New York Times to the list of media outlets who are on the Notre Dame "bandwagon" -- as the Irish keep moving up the national polls. If Ben Hansbrough was wearing a "gold helmet" -- he'd probably be in the Heisman Trophy discussion... Why does this make me nervous? The Irish go on the road this Saturday to take on a dangerous West Virginia team -- tip off is scheduled for 1:00 PM on CBS.
