Notre Dame Football: Coach Kelly and Staff NCAA college football enthusiasts are already placing Notre Dame out of the running at a spot in the College Football Playoff, after their 41-8 loss on a Saturday night. The Fighting Irish immediately dropped from the No.3 top NCAA college team to No. 8. Surprisingly, the Miami Hurricanes (8-0, 6-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) quickly ran through their opponents to face-off the Notre Dame leaders (8-1) within the Hard Rock Stadium in front of the mighty
It was a clear afternoon on November 10th, 1928 when the Notre Dame Fighting Irish football team took the field against the Black Knights of Army. Army was the number one team in the nation that year, and Notre Dame was having one of their worst seasons ever under the leadership of legendary coach Knute Rockne. At the end of the opening half, neither team had managed to score. With his dejected players gathered around him in the locker room, Rockne congratulates them on their performance in the
On Thursday, October 19, I attended the Sacred Heart versus Notre Dame hockey game. I have previously attended hockey games at Compton Family Ice Arena both in and out of the student section. However, this experience was slightly different than my previous ones since many students were still away for fall break. The lack of students created a much different atmosphere especially because at Notre Dame Hockey games the crowd tends to feed off the excitement of students. This was obvious during certain

My dream is to become a football coach. My coaches had a very strong impact on my life and helped me evolve into the person I am today.

true story, is an inspiring tale of Daniel "Rudy" Rudiger’s fight against all odds to play football for Notre Dame. Rudy, through the course of his entire life, had been told by everyone that chasing his dream of playing Notre Dame football would only cause him heartache. Despite all hindrances, Rudy, played by Sean Astin, accomplished his dream, and is to this day the last Notre Dame football player to be carried off the field.
