Irish thrash navy
Aidan Thomas - Nov 8, 2021

Although relaxing wins have been rare for Notre Dame in 2021, they got one on Saturday as the home crowd watched the Irish thrash Navy 34-6 in the penultimate home game of the season.

Aidan Thomas - Oct 3, 2021

Does Notre Dame have a Brian Kelly problem? It may seem ridiculous to consider a week after Kelly set the all-time wins record as a Notre Dame coach, but the question must be asked. Kelly looked unprepared for another top-10 matchup on Saturday, repeated much of the same meaningless script that has become all too […]

Another Big Year Coming Up? With four players taken, including three in the first 65 picks, the 2022 NFL Draft was another successful one for Mark Stoops and Kentucky football.

The Big XII Conference had a significant breakthrough this past season. For the first time since the 2014 season, the Oklahoma Sooners didn’t a conference championship title.

The Big 12 is a conference at an interesting moment in its history. It is in the middle of change with two teams leaving in the coming years and four more entering.
