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.

Suggestions for Charlie Weis: Week Three

On Saturday, I sat with my brother, cursing at the television. I could not understand, for the life of me, why a team who showed so much promise against San Diego State and Michigan, a team that had some unexpected players starting to make game-changing plays, could lose so poorly to Michigan State. It wasn’t that the Irish lost by a big margin, they didn’t, …

Injecting Emotion Into an Emotionless Program

It wasn’t quite the Miami/Florida International brawl. However, anyone who went to the 2008 Blue-Gold Game remembers the scuffle that occurred when Harrison Smith intercepted a Jimmy Clausen pass and ran it into the end zone for a touchdown. What we saw that day was what had been brewing since December.

This past off-season, Charlie Weis did some soul searching to figure out if maybe …

Suggestions for Charlie Weis: Week Two

In light of last week’s game against San Diego State, I was pretty wary about watching the Irish this Saturday. It’s not that I didn’t think that the Irish would perform badly, but that there was so many unknown aspects about both Notre Dame and Michigan that could make this game a pleasant surprise for Irish fans, or a hellish nightmare. Luckily for Irish fans, …

Suggestions for Charlie Weis: Week One

On Friday night, I couldn’t sleep. As part of my annual tradition, I watched Rudy. I know—in my previous article, I bashed people who watch Rudy and then make predictions on the new football season. Let’s just say I was trying to gear myself up for a new year of football laced with optimism. Plus, I’ve already made my season predictions.

Finally, Saturday morning …

Broken Bones and Missing Teeth

On Saturday, I felt very empty. While the rest of the country was enjoying the first games of the 2008 College Football season, I was sitting at home watching the television, wishing I could root for one team or another, but I’ve never been able to root for a team that isn’t wearing the interlocking ND on their uniforms. So far, the 2008 season has …

Notre Dame’s Rival: Who Takes the Cake?

Usually, if you walk down the streets of South Bend and ask any Notre Dame fan who the Irish’s biggest rival is, more than likely, they’ll say, “USC.” However, if you ask a fan who isn’t as well-versed in Notre Dame History, you might hear responses like, Michigan, Boston College, Miami, Florida State, or even Navy. Why then, do some Notre Dame fans consider USC …

National Championship Drought: How Long Is Too Long?

Before I begin this article, I must confess that I’m a die-hard Notre Dame fan. I live and die with the Irish and more recently, I’ve been dying.

I’ve seen a lot of criticism towards Notre Dame in recent years, with people saying that Notre Dame is irrelevant in college football. Part of this, I’m sure, is Notre Dame’s stellar streak of nine bowl losses.…
