So Things Look a Bit Different Around Here

hls_avatar

As promised, I've working on some changes to the HLS this offseason. We've been long, long overdue for some upgrades, but to do so, I needed to upgrade our theme and clean up quite a bit of the coding. I've done so and, of course, anything that I touch goes straight to hell no matter how much I test things out. I've been able to iron most of the details out tonight, but don't be surprised if you see a few design elements off here and there. However, we've been able to take advantage of a … [Read more...]

Via @CFBPlayof

This has been a rather busy morning for the powers-that-be of the new College Football Playoff. First, all college teams can put their crystal football dreams to rest.

Friday Roundup

Those that follow me on Twitter during the offseason quickly become aware of two other major interests in my life outside of football: the WWE and the Texas Rangers. The former is a guilty pleasure that I probably care way too much about (as evidence by the fact I like writing many, many words about it) and the other has always been a part of my life.

2014 Opponent Preview: Syracuse

We've had quite a bit of a break since our last Notre Dame opponent preview. The way I see it, Notre Dame has a bye week before Syracuse, so I'm completely justified in taking a break! Anyways, Syracuse will be the first ACC opponent that the Irish will face as ND eases into the scheduling relationship with the ACC. While technically an away game, Syracuse will be hosting the Irish at a neutral site, MetLife Stadium. Depending on the turnout, this could very well be a home crowd for the … [Read more...]
