Good morning! Each week, Her Loyal Sons publishes the #HLSRecap, a collection of the best tweets during Notre Dame football games. We’ve had 520 unique contributors to the recap this year, but 25 stand head and shoulders above the rest as people who provide consistently exceptional content. This Top 25 list is a “must follow” if you’re interested in supplementing your game-watching experience.
Our Wake Forest recap was mostly happy. The main complaint Irish fans seemed to have about 28-7 win was it was kind of…boring. I’m quite content with a boring win, especially on something as special as Senior Day.
Before we unveil the new Top 25 – we’ve got a new tweeter at the top! – here’s a quick overview of our last recap:
- 224 tweets
- 122 total contributors – We appreciate each and every one of you, whether you tried to be included in the recap or we just threw you in!
- 42 new contributors – We are now over 500 unique contributors on the year.
Finally, a reminder of how we keep score (because what good is having a recap without awarding arbitrary points?):
- 1 point for each tweet featured in the #HLSRecap
- 0.5 points for each tweet of yours that is RT’ed or quoted, giving credit for the alley & oop
- An arbitrary amount of T.R.O.L.L. points (The Ranking Of the Leprechaun Legion) handed out by the man that started this monster, @Irish Elvis.
Elvis is back with a vengeance after a four-week absence. Read his notes on why certain top tweeters got T.R.O.L.L.’ed.

|3||ndtex (f/k/a HLS_NDTex)||11.5||-55||53.5||Really thought Tex's retirement from HLS would have had a more positive impact on ND's playoff rank.|
|5||SupermanTDJesus||11.5||-34||47.5||This guy has a serious man-crush on Brian Van Gorder, but the defense still managed to give up seven points to Wake Forest 🙁|
|8||IDtheMike||0||2.5||39.5||MQ must be really sad that Navy's record is helping ND's playoff chances, so here's a couple points to help him feel better about this continuing rivalry.|
|13||PeteSampson_||4||-5||32||Asked Brian Kelly about good stadium venues, and when "Lambeau" was provided as an answer, didn't follow up to ask which team he'd be coaching|
|24||HLS_BayouIrish||4||-10||25.5||Wore an LSU shirt to an Alabama game watch. Bama won anyway.|
|ORV||HLS_Moons||5||-10||22||still thinks a hot dog is a sandwich|
Two more weeks! Finish strong everyone. If you want to know your ranking, tweet at me.
