A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…
…okay, so it’ll be tomorrow on a football field on the west coast…
THE IRISH AWAKEN
It is a dark time for all Notre Dame fans.
The Fighting Irish have lost three games in a row for the second time in the Brian Kelly era. Turnovers, missed field goals, botched holds, and injuries have plagued the Irish.
With their backs against the wall, the Irish travel west to face their long-time rivals, SOUTHERN CAL, and to achieve the clean sweep of rivals in a painful 2014 season.
Despite his turnover issues, EVERETT GOLSON, reflects on his training and looks to lead Notre Dame to victory in the Coliseum once again to restore peace and tranquility under the Dome…
…by the way…
Michigan STILL hasn’t scored…

Aggies, we feel your pain. Texas A&M got pretty hosed on an offsides no-call that turned into a game-ending interception as Aggie QB, Kyle Allen, did what you are supposed to do when you draw someone offsides: snap it quick and toss a prayer up and see if you get lucky. To a lesser extent, we feel you too Cal.
I really hope this story has a good ending. An Ohio State player has been missing since Wednesday and based on the limited information, it definitely doesn’t sound great.
If you’d like to take a dive into the culture of Texas A&M, this longform piece on Bonfire (yes, it must be capitalized), is a must read.
The Iron Bowl is easily the biggest game this week. If you need a history lesson, ESPN has a pretty cool infographic on the affair.
R.I.P., Jim Butz. The press box employee was instrumental in the creation of the now iconic Fighting Irish logo created.
A lot has been made about the sideline conversations between Golson and Kelly. This piece had some pretty good insight on how the two handle their business.
And now your moment of Nix… STAR WARS TRAILER IS OUT AND ALL CAPS ARE TOTALLY NEEDED!
We did last year and I see no reason to change it. As a reminder:
If you motherfuckers truly <3 me and miss the site, YOU WILL be drinking TROJAN BLOOD on Saturday. Don’t think- JUST FUCKING DRINK IT #FUSC

Yeah, Subway is out of retirement, but we ain’t stopping now. Mountain Dew Code Red + Gin (Tanqueray is what Subway, the creator of the drink, recommends).
As a further reminder, this happened last year as well:

I married a good one, y’all.
Texan by birth, Irish by choice.
Born and raised in the great state of Texas, Tex is a first-generation Domer and a former student manager. After graduation, he left the cold winters of South Bend behind and returned back to his home state with a computer engineering degree in tow. Missing the daily grind of working football practices and talking football with fellow Irish fans every day, he took to blogging, a path which eventually led him to Her Loyal Sons. Continuously diving into stats and game film, Tex strives to break down every aspect of Fighting Irish football--even though it's determined to kill him.
