Good morning! Well, it's not so good for Irish fans as news has just come out that RB Greg Bryant will miss the first four games of the season for an unspecified violation of team rules.

We are still too far away from fall camp to begin the hype train in earnest. By this point, news reaches a snails pace as the dog days of summer approach.

Good morning! After a very hectic weekend following the Irish Invasion, the beat writers covering Notre Dame football appear to be taking a very deserved break. If there's one thing to watch today, it has to be @ndmspaint's new video ( embedded at the bottom of this page). One Foot Down has a great recap of the top play from last year.
