Here’s the audio of Hawaii football coach Greg McMackin’s politcally incorrect slur used during a live press conference. His attempt to cover up the slip of tongue is laughable, and definitely made his attempt at reconciling the situation half-hearted and un-genuine. Needless to say, he is still upset the Irish went into his little tiki and [...]
You can google college football rivalries, and 999 out of 1,000 returns will mention Ohio St.-Michigan, Alabama-Auburn, or Army-Navy. These blood matches have transcended time, despite the landscape of football changing drastically over the last 20 years. Today, we are going to look at some of the newer conference matchups that are sure to be heated for 2009.
When I was a wee sprat growing up in the industrial jungles of the Midwest, Saturday morning was (and still is) the highlight of my week. Long before booze and crippling hangovers ruined many a weekend, my youthful exuberance allowed me to wake up bright and early every weekend in the fall for an unhealthy [...]
Dear readers, Before I even (pitifully) attempt to win you back after weeks of abstinence from 4HT, I’ll admit old SH has been quite a turd of late, leaving you in the dark during a stretch when much has happened. My reasons for bailing are far from adequate (booze, women, cheap booze, cheap women, etc.), [...]
Moments after the White Sox season officially came to a close, I booked a plane ticket for Chicago. My intentions were to visit the old stomping ground, and spend a week doing the only thing I remain sober and alert for, bowhunting monster whitetail deer that inhabit the Midwest. The relaxing vacation helped ease the pain, but here I [...]
It may have taken 4 games, but the Irish offense has finally looked dominant against a quality opponent. No my friends, that is not a typo. Saturday’s showdown with the rival Boilers proved to be a coming party for many, and when the smoke cleared, Notre Dame had pulled out a 38-21 victory over Purdue.
Yesterday, during the craptastic Irish loss to Sparty, I decided to keep a “drunken diary,” tabulating my thoughts and reactions as the game went on. The first half is quite detailed, but, as anyone who has been in the grasps of a crippling all-day drinking binge knows, things get a little fuzzy with time. Javon [...]
In a game marred by turnovers, flukey plays, and a sideline exit that toppled mammoth head coach Charlie Weis into an air-cast and crutches, Notre Dame braved the elements, dug deep, and beat hated rival Michigan 35-17 on a Saturday that was highlighted by an emotional tribute to the 1988 National Championship team. The victory makes the Irish [...]
Anyone expecting to see Notre Dame rise from the ashes and make a run at the top 25 this season were hit with a serious reality check after Saturday’s dissappointing 21-13 win against San Diego State. The Irish, 22 point favorites at home, played from behind most of the game, and eeked out a non-decisive [...]
If I had to wait any longer for the 2008 college football season to kick off, this post would be written from a mental hospital. The last few weeks have dragged on relentlessly, and that breaking point where something bad might happen is here. Luckily my prayers will be answered this Thursday, and, as a [...]
Looks like Nate Montana will walk-on, in hopes of duplicating the gridiron glory his father Joe had at Notre Dame. http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2008/writers/arash_markazi/05/12/montana.0512/index.html
Alright fellas. With the defense accounted for, it’s time to focus on the offensive side of the ball for my running recruiting diary. The Irish gave up an unscrupulous 58 sacks last year, and any swinging dick smartass can do the math. 58 sacks=almost 5 per game=3-9 record. At times it looked like the o-line purposely sidestepped [...]
Ahhhhhhh and here we are. Part 3 of my running recruiting diary, which covers defensive linemen, will perhaps be the most difficult to write, since we all know what happened with a certain 5 star recruit before signing day. If you are unaware, please stick around, and if you are in the know, I’d like to hear [...]
In a continuation of my running recruiting diary, this is definitely the position that intrigues me most. Linebackers are the backbone of any solid defense, and the Irish definitely answered the call this year by signing some high grade kids at this spot, all of which have vast amounts of potential to succeed at the college level.
Signing day is a distant memory, and with the smoke finally cleared (except drama queen Terrelle Pryor), it appears Notre Dame is on their way to rebuilding a crippled national image. I am excited for this incoming crop of young players, but history has taught me recruiting is an in-exact science, and high commit rankings don’t [...]
