    Terry, re: Jackie Young. That was a very nice testimonial. I’m not sure that’s what you’d call it, but that’s how I see it.

    All 5 of the ND women's BB players who entered the WNBA draft were drafted in the 1st round, including Jackie Young, who was chosen #1.

    Quite a group of players that's for sure. Won a lot of games and a National Title. Good luck to them all.

    Have you guy seen the news about Cierre Wood. He is about to be charged with first degree murder in the beating death of his girlfriend's five year old daughter. She has been charged with felony child abuse and neglect. I hope to hell they have the death penalty in Nevada. If guilty he should be put down like the rabid dog he is.

    Very Sad story, unfortunately one that happens all too often. The biggest threat to a young child is his mothers boyfriend.

    Book getting a lot of praise for his play in the Blue/Gold game, running backs getting praise. Lots of concern for how Phil Jurkovec played today

    The Cierre Wood thing is tragic. It's just hard to believe anyone could do that to a child.

    Apparently there is going to be a big soccer match in ND stadium this summer, maybe Liverpool vs somebody. I wondered about the surface, but somebody said that Michigan brought in grass for a similar situation last summer and it worked great. They lay the grass over the top of the artificial turf.

    Noah Boykin, CB from Washington DC, has entered the transfer portal. He was a 2018 kid, didn't play last year at all.

    Looks like the Irish picked up a 4 star DE from Hawaii Jordan Botelho. You can never have too many rush ends.

    This Botelho kid is a huge pickup for the Irish. I thought for sure he was headed to Washington but for some reason we seem to be getting some of the Hawaii kids now. Very nice recruit for ND.

    looks like ND may be one of the schools caught up in the paying players scandal that is spilling over from hoops to football. If that's true, and it was ND employees, they'll fire everyone. Rightfully so. This isn't the GD SEC.
