Apparently we'll know tonight at 8 PM ET...
Notre Dame alum Judge Thomas Hardiman '87 is apparently one of now -- two finalists -- being considered by President Trump as his Supreme Court nominee.
If nominated and confirmed -- Judge Hardiman would be the only member of the Supreme Court without an Ivy League degree.

I can never say enough nice things about this young man. Pat Connaughton is a class act.

Watch James representing the "GOLD HELMET" today at 3 PM ET on the NFL Network. I know you won't miss that helmet -- but, he will be wearing white jersey #47.
