After months of intricate planning and self introspection, I finally dropped Episode 1 of The Man Cave Quarterback. I had many fantastic ideas for the new show and plenty of them hit the bottom of the trash barrel. Once I started recording these segments and laying the seperate tracks down I tried to mold the show I’d formed in my head to what sounded half-way decent in the headphones. You’ll find a mix of interviews, muscial interludes, Fighting Irish Football takes from yours truly, and some other new stuff. I’m excited about where this is headed, but there is a long season with plenty of work ahead.
Guest Interviews: Matt Mulvey & Mike Quick. Mulvey just graduated from Notre Dame after spending four seasons on the football team as a walk-on quarterback. He’s more famously known as the leader of the Red Army – the Irish QBs wearing red hats and signaling in the plays next to Brian Kelly during the game. As one of very few people to ever sit in on quarterback meetings with Brian Kelly, Everett Golson, Andrew Hendrix and Tommy Rees, he provides unique perspective to the ongoing QB battle. Mike Quick has been covering High School football in New York, New Jersey & Connecticut for over 25 years at Madison Square Garden. Having covered current Irish players Elijiah Shumate & Ishaq Williams since their early days on the gridiron, he doesn’t sugarcoat his feelings about their potential and past. Quick also updates the recruitniks on whether Rutgers can remain a recruiting power post-Schiano and where he stands on two top Notre Dame recruits – DE/OLB Ebenezer Ogundeko & DE Alquadin Muhammad.
