Notre Dame's "Best Tight End" of All-Time?


We have had many talented tight ends in Notre Dame's football history:

  • One is a Heisman Trophy Winner -- Leon Hart
  • One is in the Pro Football Hall of Fame -- Dave Casper
  • We have multiple College Football Hall of Famers, who played tight end
  • We have multiple Super Bowl Champs, who played tight end
  • And, we've had multiple All-Americans & NFL All-Pros who played tight end

However, I do believe it's not a stretch to say Michael Mayer's has had the greatest 2.5 seasons for a Notre Dame tight end -- EVER!

Let's see how it all ends up for Mayer.

OT: #1 Ferris State vs. #2 Grand Valley State


It's the "game of the year" in NCAA Division II Football and it takes place this Saturday in Big Rapids, MI at 1 PM ET.

I have to admit, I was hoping the folks at College GameDay might decide to break from tradition and take their show to a Division II campus...

Well, this Saturday the #1 ranked Ferris State Bulldogs -- the defending national champs and their 43 game regular season winning streak -- take on the #2 ranked Grand Valley State Lakers!

This game -- two schools less than an hour away from each other by car -- has turned into one of the top rivalries in the country.  Should be fun to watch!

Met This Family On Flight to Las Vegas...

I had the honor of sitting next to David & Jess Runyan -- Notre Dame fans from the Michiana area -- on the flight Thursday from Grand Rapids, MI to Las Vegas...

They were part of a group of 18 members of the Notre Dame Nation -- all gathering in Las Vegas for our game vs. BYU.  They rented a suite at the Raiders' Allegiant Stadium and they even designed their own t-shirt for the trip (bottom image).  Jess even painted her finger nails for the celebration...

Thought you'd enjoy their experience.
