I took my daughter to see Inside Out yesterday, and when we walked outside, it was drizzling, and as we drove home, the drizzle turned to rain, and as we drove further, to a downpour. Rain always makes me nostalgic and I thought it fitting, for Inside Out is very much a movie about memory. Which got me thinking about Notre Dame, inarguably the most memory-focused of the FBS schools. The Victory March doesn't get out of the first verse before we're promising to¬†"ne'er forget her."

Good morning! Tex, on a post-NBA Draft high, sat down early this morning to round up the week's events - Grant to the Knicks, a rapper fights a ripped dude, Holtz's house, and the always entertaining/depressing "College Football: Law & Order" segment.

Good morning! Moons is back with his ongoing series, "Straight Expectations." This time he looks at Max Redfield, who has some serious pre-season buzz coming into his junior season. Redfield was underwhelming at times last year. He even got benched at one point for Austin Collinsworth, who was playing with one good arm. But Redfield had a great spring game and the ultimate success of Notre Dame's defense this year may come down to how well Max plays and communicates with his teammates. Read … [Read more...]
