The "Son of Domers" Named Marist's Head Coach!


Couldn't be more proud of Mike Willis -- who was just named the Head Football Coach at Marist. 

Here he is giving his first interview as the leader of a Division I program.

Mike's Dad (the late Tim Willis '84) and his Mom Sue Willis '86 are neighbors and great friends.  I recall a conversation Mike and I had (after his playing days were over) about chasing a career in football -- and here he is getting his first head coaching gig.

Mike's younger brother Brian was a two-time Bengal Bouts champ at Notre Dame!

I know he'd love to coach here at Notre Dame someday!

Folks Around College Football Think Leonard to ND

This is the latest buzz on a QB transferring to Notre Dame -- there has been a "crystal ball" for Duke's QB Riley Leondard to be joining the Fighting Irish...

Leonard only played 7 games this season due to the injury he sustained in the game against Notre Dame.

He played a full season in 2022 and passed for nearly 3,000 yards throwing 20 TD's against 6 interceptions -- while rushing for 699 yards and 13 TD's.  He would bring size, speed and arm strength to Notre Dame Football.

 Stay tuned.

Took a lap around the worldwide web this AM to see what the bowl game projections were looking like for our Fighting Irish -- we appear to have two options, to play in the newly named Pop Tarts Bowl in Orlando on December 28th or, what most "experts" think/hope is a match-up with LSU in the ReliaQuest Bowl in Tampa on New Year's Day...

Notre Dame Hockey Sweeps #19 Ohio State !!!


Great weekend for the Fighting Irish! 


OT: Here's the Big Ten's Letter to Michigan's AD

The ongoing sign stealing investigation of the University of Michgan's football program has led to the Big Ten suspending Jim Harbaugh from coaching their next three games.

The University of Michigan has since filed a restraining order --- that may receive a hearing in the next two hours from a court in Washtenaw County, MI -- where the University is located.

So, we may see Harbaugh still on the sideline at Noon ET today vs. Penn State.  Photo above is of "Tim Garbaugh" who was just named interim head coach for Michigan today (this was from a poster on Irish Sports Daily -- very creative!)

Update:  The "in-person" hearing on Harbaugh's suspension is now scheduled for November 17th -- so he will not be on the sideline today -- per ESPN's Pete Thamel.
