About

I have been born into a Notre Dame family and grew up just a short drive from Notre Dame's campus, but currently reside in Ashland, Ohio. That being said, I am married to Stefanie, who is very tolerant of my constant shenanigans. When I'm not busy dreaming, thinking, and talking about Notre Dame football, I enjoy playing my Xbox 360 and practicing my drums. I also periodically enjoy Bushmills Irish whiskey after dinner. I try to formulate my opinions in my articles based on a sound knowledge of the history of Notre Dame Football. I am very lucky in that I have many resources and people in my life with whom I can discuss, fantasize, and rant about the program. I hope you find my writing enjoyable.

Facing an Angry Mob: The Future of Charlie Weis at Notre Dame

For most Irish fans, including myself, this year was quite a let down for the Notre Dame Football team. At the beginning of the season, many analysts touted the Irish as a team with more cohesiveness and more experience. Gone were the days of poor technique and poor execution. However, most people still felt that this year’s squad would be one or two years away …

Suggestions for Charlie Weis: Week Nine

This past weekend was a very difficult one for many Irish fans. The frustration and disbelief I felt at the end of Notre Dame’s match up against Boston College was similar to the disbelief a young man feels when he breaks up with his very first girlfriend. In one moment, the young man realizes that the faults in his “relationship” with his girlfriend far outweigh …

Suggestions for Notre Dame Fans

Yes, you read the title correctly. The Notre Dame Football program is at a unique crossroads this week as it recovers from a marathon loss to Pittsburgh and is preparing to face Boston College. This week is more crucial to the outcome of the season for the Fighting Irish than their bye week was two weeks ago. Why? Because this week, as Notre Dame Football …

It Was the Best of Times, It Was the Worst of Times

This past week, the Notre Dame Football team found themselves at a very unique crossroads. For a long while, the Irish have yet to field a football team that could be so enjoyable to watch and yet, with a split second and a mental lapse, could be so frustrating to watch. When they are clicking on all cylinders, this football team has the ability to …

Suggestions for Charlie Weis: Week Six

The clock clicked to zero and the players on the field began to jog into the locker room. It was halftime and Notre Dame was beating up on North Carolina. The score was 17-9 and by that alone, you couldn’t tell that the Irish were playing some of the best football I’d seen all season. The Notre Dame defense held the North Carolina offense to …

God, Country, Notre Dame (in Glory Everlasting)

It’s more than a clever motto: if you’ve ever visited the Basilica of the Sacred Heart on the campus of Notre Dame, you may have seen this phrase engraved deep into the stone above the side door. For the thousands of Irish fans across the globe, this phrase personifies the place that Notre Dame has in their lives. But, what does this phrase mean and …

Clashmore Mike Welcomes Anthony Pilcher

Additionally, he’s a skilled writer who does a great job recapping games from an X’s and O’s perspective. We invited Anthony to our team partly because he’s a very good writer and partly because we feel sorry for him because he lives in …

Suggestions for Charlie Weis: Week Five

Anyone who has attended multiple games at Notre Dame Stadium keeps a personal record of wins and losses while they were there. My mother, for example, has a horrible record as an attendee—Notre Dame has lost every game that she’s attended. Previous to last season, I had a 4-0 record as an attendee; however, the last game I attended was last year’s game against Navy. …

Suggestions for Charlie Weis: Week Four

Whenever the Irish saddle up to play the Boilermakers, I am usually looking forward to a game of little excitement. Even though Purdue is a team that likes to dink and dunk the ball down the field, they usually end up playing a vanilla type of game with the Irish. It’s not like when Notre Dame faces USC or Michigan—where you can expect a certain …
