OT: 3 Oregon Football Players Hospitalized

The new football staff in Oregon is apparently working their players a little too hard...


Today Is My Fifth Anniversary at Notre Dame...

1,825 days ago I walked into a building off Eddy Street to start my first day of employment here at the University of Notre Dame.

I remember sitting in the first meeting with my new Notre Dame teammates;  Bob Quakenbush, Chas Grundy, Jen Hengehold, Jody Sadler and Fr. Ralph Haag, C.S.C.  I gave each a booklet entitled "The Small Things In Life" -- which shared my thoughts on food, language and life.  I'm sure they were thinking to themselves; "who is this crazy guy...?"

I'm sure they still do.

Over the next 1,824 days we lost a few of these teammates and continued to add more talent to our Storytelling & Engagement Team;  Brandon Tabor, David Chaudoir, Michael Rodio, Travis Mather, Lin Wang, Terry Howard, Catey Traylor, Kennedy St. Charles, Grace Prosniewski -- and most recently, Jim Gosz and Patrick Borders.  We'll soon be adding Matt Gelchion and a "writer to be named later..."

This team has proven time and time again that they "can leap tall buildings in a single bound."  It's been special.

I've also had the honor of reporting to three very talented, passionate and dedicated professionals; Lou Nanni, Shannon Cullinan and Micki Kidder -- during my time here.  I want to thank each of them for trusting us to do what is right for Notre Dame.

It's been great FUN.

As I wrap up day #1,825 -- please know I'm not one to spend much time looking back -- I'm driven by what's next.  Thus, I pray I'm given many more days to serve Notre Dame.

It's not a job -- it's a passion.

I am one lucky guy.

Go Irish!
