HLS TV (Episode 16): New Year’s Joy


Happy New Year, Loyal Readers! Be sure to spend a little bit of time today¬†watching (or listening) to Molly Moran and myself talk about Notre Dame's surprising win over LSU in the Music City Bowl to get your 2015 started off right. Yes, we both predicted a win in the previous episode, but let's be honest, we were both very, very afraid about that claim (which we made without the knowledge that Malik Zaire would be starting!). I don't think I've ever been so happy to take a super optimistic … [Read more...]

Music City Bowl Predictions

Okay, Loyal Readers, it's time to do the prediction thing one more time. In order to get your predictions in, use this handy Google form. Now, full disclosure, I completely had the prediction post slip my mind yesterday, so in the interest of time, I do not have updated standings or HLS staff picks. I thought about pulling quotes, but I don't think I'm ready to relive the Southern Cal disaster on gameday. We will have one final, mega-post later this week to detail the final results as well as … [Read more...]

Malik Zaire Will Start for Notre Dame in Music City Bowl

Malik Zaire takes off on one of the biggest rushing plays of the ND season against Rice.

Molly and I mentioned in our most recent episode of HLS TV that we could certainly be in for some news on Monday for Notre Dame. We thought injury updates might be the biggest thing--we certainly didn't anticipate Brain Kelly announcing that Malik Zaire would be the Irish's starting QB tomorrow afternoon. https://twitter.com/JJStankevitz/status/549648437290221569 https://twitter.com/JJStankevitz/status/549649539360382976 Kelly, though, still made sure to state that Everett Golson would … [Read more...]

HLS TV (Episode 15): Music City Bowl Preview


The Christmas holiday is over, 2015 is rapidly approaching, and the Music City Bowl between Notre Dame and LSU will go down tomorrow. That means it's time to get back to business here at HLS and that business kicks off with another episode of HLS TV. Molly Moran and I return to preview the game, share our thoughts, and give a bit of a primer on what LSU brings to the table, especially in their rushing game. We also tossed in some graphics in this episode, so let us know how you like … [Read more...]

RECORDING: Friday Roundup – Episode 07 (Dec. 19, 2014)

Friday Roundup

Welcome back, Loyal Readers! I hope y'all had a fantastic Christmas and are still enjoying a nice relaxing time with friends and family before Notre Dame takes on LSU this Tuesday at the Music City Bowl. We're still mostly on vacation here at HLS, but will be coming out of our Christmas slumber this weekend to get you ready for the game. Since yesterday was Christmas, there was no earthly way that I was going to prepare a full-fledged Friday Roundup, so instead, I will post last week's audio … [Read more...]
