Instead of looking towards who is at Notre Dame now, yesterday was a time to look to the future for the Irish as the NCAA’s early signing period commenced. In addition to basketball being eligible to sign during this period, every other sport aside from football, soccer, track and field and cross country are allowed to sign at this time.
Now, what did we miss…

4. Men’s Soccer – Soft-Spoken Hodan Thrives As Scorer (LINK-The Observer)
The Irish men’s soccer team moved into the ACC Championship semifinals after a 1-0 victory over Duke on Tuesday. Patrick Hodan has been a pleasant surprise for the Irish on the attack. Click the link above to read more.
5. Men’s Tennis – Bright Future Ahead (LINK-UND.com)
The Irish welcomed a five-star recruit this fall to the stable of great Irish tennis student-athletes. Click the link above to see how Eddy Covalschi has begun his collegiate tennis career.
Seems like something to ponder there Tom…

Notre Dame-ish Video Of The Day
Our men’s basketball blogger Mike Franz is the mascot, Basil the St. Bernard, at Holy Cross College. At last weekend’s basketball game, Franz had the opportunity to win a Holy Cross student books for a semester if he hit a half court shot within 30 seconds … it only took one.
Let’s talk general Notre Dame football…
If Notre Dame didn’t just count unanimous national titles in football (11), how many total years would the Irish have at least a claim of a national championship?
You will find the answer to today’s trivia question in Friday’s T.I.F.I.
Wednesday’s question (What Notre Dame coach has the most wins in his or her career?) was answered correctly by a variety of people. The correct answer is Mike DeCiccio… Only one to get the correct answer was Davie Dave! Dave send me your address to AHorvat3@nd.edu and we will get something sent your way!
