Just as Notre Dame Football has got back into the groove on the practice fields, Herring Bone has been cranking into midseason form on the blogging & podcasting front. Here are some updates on what I’ve been up to:
1. My all-time favorite Notre Dame player for 19 years has been Kevin McDougal - Quarterback of the legendary 1993 Notre Dame team that should have played for the National Championship. We hosted McDougal on Ask Oscar’s most recent show and the former teammates delved into never told stories about the last great Irish team. You can listen to the full episode by clicking below or check out my post at SubwayDomer.com where I transcribed an amazing story about the QB battle that August between McDougal and #1 rated recruit Ron Powlus. Check it ALL out HERE. Full Show:
2. Tight End Alex Welch is likely out for the season. While there is still depth at the position, maybe offense us where talented OLB Ishaq Williams would do the most damage for ND in 2012 and beyond. Some of the Pros & Cons.
3. TNNDN’s Down the Line hosted 1988 Notre Dame graduate and current sportswriter John Walters this week. Formerly of Sports Illustrated, Walters went in-depth on the 2012 Fighting Irish and the QB battles and stories of all four competitors. Walters, who graduated with former guests Tim Brown & author Nicholas Sparks, spoke about the decision to attend Notre Dame over Georgetown and what he knew on-campus of the future of then-Irish track star Sparks. If you don’t follow Walters hilarious Twitter account @jdubs88, then you might not know the resident New Yorker is a Saturday Night Live die-hard like yours truly. Here’s the question I cooked up for him in the limited time we had:
Five years from now, who is a bigger household name – Taran Killam or Jay Pharoah?”
Enjoy the interview, which starts about 15 minutes in. We spend time with Tyler Moorehead, dorm mate of one Manti Te’o, discussing the linebacker’s impact on campus. Also dissected are the rest of the LB corps and the OL outlook. Enjoy:
