Friday Roundup: The “Declaration of iNDependence” Episode

Friday Roundup

Yes, I used "ND" in the middle of a word. I don't care. Eye-roll away. Anyways, after yet another week full of hot takes on why Notre Dame's independence is the worst thing ever and should bar them from the college football playoffs, I felt it was time to devote a whole episode of the Friday Roundup to the topic.

Fighting Irish Digital Media named Laura Thomas as the third official Notre Dame Sports Blogger a couple of weeks ago.

Laura joins me as the first guest on the Friday Roundup since we've gone full podcast and the majority of the episode is devoted to our conversation. We talk everything from ND Football, FIDM, Football 101, family, tweeting … [Read more...]
