My favorite "non-Notre Dame" football game EVERY YEAR -- it just doesn't get any better than this for me.
I look forward to their MARCH ON into Lincoln Financial Field, CBS's game intro (last year's above) -- and the joy and despair at game's end...
I always find myself rooting for NAVY -- and I will again today. Just hope it's a close game!

I will never forget a conversation I had with former Notre Dame Offensive Coordinator Chuck Martin, my Uncle Pat Sweeney and cousin Kevin Sweeney in the middle of the team's locker room at the Guglielmino Athletics Complex -- three years ago...
We had an impromptu conversation about the "star rankings" given to recruits when I asked Coach Martin this question; "What incoming recruit do you think will surprise the most?"
His answer: "We signed a wide receiver out of Roman Catholic High School in Philadelphia named Will Fuller, that no one is talking about. We believe he will be a big time player for us and he's only a so-called "three star" recruit. He is really fast and he can high-point the ball..."
