Friday Roundup: The “Safety Transfer” Edition

Friday Roundup

Remember what I said last week about my plans? It turns out, the same applies to this little weekly column as well. After spending most of the night brainstorming ideas on what to write about, this happened. Avery Sebastian is now Irish and I'd be dumb to talk about anything else, really. The Cal graduate spent his career playing safety for the Golden Bears. He suffered an Achilles injury in the opener of his junior season, missing the remainder of the year and a good chunk of his senior … [Read more...]

Friday Roundup: The “30 for 30″ Edition

Friday Roundup

What if I told you that a Hispanic, Protestant kid from Texas would end up running one of the largest Notre Dame Football sites on the internet...

For something so dumb, I have the usual reaction, but the NFL actually managed to make some headlines this week that had potential college football … [Read more...]

Friday Roundup: The “Made for TV” Edition

Friday Roundup

Now that the bowl season has finally come to a close, the stats that matter have finally come out: attendance and TV ratings. While my tongue is certainly planted in my cheek right now, I certainly recognize that the expansive bowl season, now totaling 39 games and featuring 76 teams (that's 59.4% of the FBS if you're keeping score), is all business. And while we've certainly heard that teams lose money going to these games, there is evidence that said loss could very well be an exercise in … [Read more...]
