I Don't Get This: Leinart to Lead Trojans...

The USC Trojans have asked former QB Matt Leinart to lead their team onto the field against Notre Dame on Saturday...

Pretty sad -- a Heisman Trophy winner turned into a mascot.


Thanks to a "Gang of Six" on Thanksgiving Eve

Eight days ago, in sub-zero wind chill on the campus of the University of Notre Dame -- six members of ND's Carpentry Services team (photo above) went beyond the call of duty to create something special for the entire Notre Dame family. 

Their names:
  • Tanner Andrysiak
  • Tim Meers
  • Jeremy Feltz
  • Derek Stump
  • Vance Welton
  • George Walters

You can see the result of their efforts in this video linked below:

Happy Birthday to the University of Notre Dame!

She is 172 years-old today!

Fr. Sorin founded the University of Notre Dame du Lac on this very day -- November 26 -- in the year 1842.

Happy Birthday Notre Dame!
