Brian Kelly Video 8/9/2017

We are getting very little out of the ND camp except a whole bunch of restrictions on reporters.

Here is the latest Brian Kelly post practice press conference. The only useful info is that Tommy Kraemer has won the RT position:

Here’s a clip of the 8/5 practice from which you can glean nothing:

Contrast USC – all of their practices are wide open.

We just have to wait for 9/2 Temple game.


Ara Dead At 94

Ara- Parseghian

Ara Parseghian compiled a 95-14-4 record in his 10 years at ND and tacked on 2 National Championships. His 1966 Team was one of college footballs all time greats – came from behind to tie Michigan State 10-10 then trounced USC.

While most fans remember the great battles with USC, Ara played 2 great games against the University of Texas in the Cotton Bowl – won 1 and lost one.

Ara came to ND in 1964 when ND Football was at perhaps its lowest point. QB John Huarte won the Heisman that year and they came 1 loss shy of a National Championship when they were cheated out of a win at USC.

The ND 2017 team will honor him by having ARA on the front of their helmets.

ND also opened up FALL CAMP this week. Here is a clip of them running around. You are not going to get anymore than this. You will just have to wait for the Temple game to see what they have.


2018 Commit Number 14 Shayne Simon – OLB/Rover

Shayne Simon

Shayne Simon is a 4 Star recruit from St. Peter’s Prep in Jersey City, NJ. He joins 2 of his current teammates for the 2018 Class.

Probably, he’ll be a 5 Star by end of this season. Currently standing at 6’3″ 215, he’s had offers from Michigan, OSU, PSU and Stanford.

Current ND QB Brandon Wimbush is also from St. Peter’s Prep. Prep is a powerhouse in NJ HS football.

Here is his highlight video:


2018 Commit Number 13 RB Jahmir Smith

Jahmir Smith

Jahmir Smith is a 3 Star 6′ 200lb RB from North Carolina. His running style is comparable to a pounder.

He has numerous offers including both the Carolina schools as well as Tennessee, Wisconsin and Minnesota.

ND now has their 2 RB’s and if they are aiming for 20 there are only 7 spots open. We need some DT’s first and most importantly.

Here is his highlight reel:


1st Commit Of 2019 Class – Cade McNamara

Cade McNamara

3 Star QB Cade McNamara 6’1″ from Reno Nevada became ND’s first commit for the 2019 Class. In his Sophomore year he threw 218 completes, 3500 yards and 46 TD’s.

He didn’t rush very much so it looks like he’s not much of a dual threat. He doesn’t have a lot of offers so far and he’s only a junior – so other teams will now give him a more thorough look during 2017.

Well it’s always good to get the first commit and this makes 2 years in a row that first commit was a QB.

Here is his highlight video:
