Well, the unthinkable happened. Clemson took out Alabama to win the national title and put an end-cap on the 2016 college football season with one final upset. Shane and I talk about this incredible game which saw nearly 100 (!!!) plays run by Clemson and some of the ballsiest calls we’ve ever seen in a game.
Plus, the Notre Dame coaching staff puts in some final pieces and we talk about how the Irish are looking heading in to the final stretch before signing day. Perhaps we will talk you off a ledge. Perhaps we will shove you off. Tune in and find out!
One final note before we get to the audio and a couple of links: we will be taking a little bit of a break. The show will likely pick back up the week of signing day unless something crazy happens that needs to be covered (note to ND: please don’t make us cover anything, we beg you).
Million dollar fail. Could also be called a million dollar flail because even Tim Tebow has no idea what this is:
This guy had a shot at winning $1 million. The pressure clearly got to him https://t.co/JPAKejC0Jq

#CollegeKicker gets final laugh. The mic drop of all mic drops from Iowa State kicker, Cole Netten:

During the show, I mentioned that a study showed home field advantage was shown in officiating. Here’s the gist of what I referenced.
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.
