We’re getting closer. Hungry yet?
Some tasty tidbits for your sampling pleasure:
- Here’s a look at some of the possible ramifications of O’Bannon, from a Duke perspective.
- “The Internet may be losing the war against trolls. At the very least, it isn’t winning.” No shit.
- Notre Dame’s academic scandal and the recruiting trail.
- For those of you who can’t get enough Todd Grantham, here’s the man live and hands on. (h/t CardDawg, who’s on the mother)
- Nick James, you bad, mane.
- Maybe we should refer to Georgia’s class of 2010 as Survivor: 2010.
- Hawaii’s AD says the school may not be able to afford to continue its football program.
- Oklahoma suspends an incoming freshman after he’s charged with misdemeanor assault, but is making the effort to have Dorial Green-Beckham declared eligible for this season. AD says, “As the university has demonstrated in the past, we are committed to winning the right way…”. Color me confused.
- The Nuttster and Gus, together again.
Evidently Lennay Kekua wasn’t the only phony thing about Notre Dame’s 2012 season.
Bruce Feldman confirms that the four have been dismissed from school.
Buck Belue seems to think so.
Bet that game in South Bend will be a tough ticket to get a hold of.
UPDATE: It’s on.
Over/under on number of games VanGorder coaches?
Also, maybe I’m guessing wrong, but does it look like Georgia will face Notre Dame and South Carolina on back to back weeks in 2017?
Georgia and Notre Dame are moving closer to a football series “later this decade,” Georgia athletics director Greg McGarity said Tuesday. And while no deal is done, and McGarity cautioned that there could be snags, he made clear that he would be eager for it to happen.
“I think it’s an opponent we’ve played, what, one time? 1980? For our fans to be able to go up to South Bend, and for our fans to see Notre Dame play between the hedges, I think from a national perspective it’d be off the charts, as far as interest, as far as intrigue,” McGarity said. “That would be something out of the ordinary that our fans would be very, very excited about.”
The two schools haven’t nailed down which years it would be, but McGarity said it would be in the range of 2017-20. Notre Dame would visit Sanford Stadium, and Georgia would visit Notre Dame Stadium.
If they actually pull this off, what are the odds VanGorder will still be there when they play?
Another day, another buffet line.
Case in point:
As has been in the case in recent years, the document showed that former football head coach Charlie Weis received more money from the school in 2012 than did any current athletics employee. Weis again received nearly $2.1 million as part of an ongoing separation agreement…
Kelly was listed with nearly $1.5 million in total pay…
So, yes, Charlie Weis was paid better than a half-million dollars more than the guy who got Notre Dame into the national title game for the first time in decades. That 2005 loss to Southern Cal will go down as the most valuable defeat in Irish history.
These guys are morons.
