ibg_nokelly3

It's rare that the IBG gets a bye this early in the season, but the rest is quite welcome. Three games is a good sample to look on what Notre Dame football has done and what is still to come. As a reminder, the IBG members (comprised of NDNation, UHND.com, The Official ND Blog, and The Subway Domer) will each ask a question to the panel.
