Five-star QB Gunner Kiel is expected to announce his college choice in the next 24 hours -- though I wouldn't be surprised if this might wait for a few more days.
Folks at LSU believe he made his choice -- as rumors are flying around the web this morning that Kiel called LSU coach Les Miles, last night, to say he was committing to the Tigers. The sentiment of many ND fans, on the web, is he's probably BAYOU BOUND.
However, didn't ND fans think another Five-star recruit was headed to another school (three years ago) with an "S & U" in its name -- and he (Manti Teo) shocked most recruiting experts when he chose the FIGHTING IRISH instead! Stay tuned...

I've spent twelve wonderful months working with a world-class team at Western Michigan University. In this job I was introduced to one of WMU's greatest assets -- a vocal jazz performance group called GOLD COMPANY. They are terrific!
Enjoy their rendition of JINGLE BELLS -- and share it with a friend who needs to SMILE TODAY!

A team of University of Notre Dame scientists have developed a paint that they believe can harness the power of the sun and turn it into electricity.
It's called SUN-BELIEVABLE PAINT.
Now, the description of what they've developed here, WHICH IS AMAZING, is just a little over my head. So, I'll leave it to the folks at the South Bend Tribune who have reported this story. Incredible!
