This is how far Notre Dame QB DeShone Kizer was from Durham Smythe's fumble at the goal line -- late in yesterday's game against Miami.
That's the Hurricane's Jamal Carter with the ball in his possession falling to the turf, with a teammate close by -- Kizer is at least FIVE YARDS AWAY.
Tell me -- how does DeShone Kizer end up with the football?
Notre Dame kicked the game winning field goal four plays later...
This is the PLAY OF THE YEAR!

Retired Minnesota Supreme Court Justice Alan Page '67 -- one of the greatest to ever wear the Notre Dame gold helmet -- is on campus today receiving the Moose Krause Distinguished Service Award from the Monogram Club. I love the family photo on top!
He also found time to meet with the Fighting Irish Football Team.
Here's a couple of his comments -- courtesy of NBC's Kathryn Tappan -- from his talk with the team. That's Kathryn pictured with Justice Page in the bottom photo.
"If you play too much to the level of your competition, you will never discover the greatest level that you can achieve yourself."
"What would I tell my 20 year old self? Don't take myself too seriously. Take what I do very seriously."

I love this idea...
Notre Dame alum Steve Bartman '99 -- AKA, the guy who Cubs fans have blamed for years for interfering with a foul ball in game seven of the 2003 NLCS (photo above) -- was offered up by the Indians' Jason Kipnis (a long-time Cubs fan) as the perfect guy to throw out the first pitch in this year's World Series.
Most believe Bartman would never agree to do this.
So, I'd like to start this campaign -- if the Cubs win the World Series -- Steve Bartman should be in the parade's lead float down Chicago's "Miracle Mile" holding the World Series trophy.
Wouldn't that be a fitting tribute!!!
