  1. Milo Hamilton says:

    Paul Chryst had a student manager dress up as a leprechaun during practice today. Probably paid him with all those timeouts he’s saved the last couple weeks.

    DK: How’s the veal?

  2. Milo Hamilton says:

    “We sold 52,000 season tickets this year.”

    And the thousands of Notre Dame fans that bought them will make their 1st trip to Heinz Field Saturday night.

  3. JohninOshkosh says:

    It’s nice businesses and corporations could buy so many and then sell them on the secondary market for $1.

    Very effective way for marketing.

  4. JohninOshkosh says:

    Another prime time night game for Pitt at home.

    Didn’t realize Pitt was in the sunbelt.

  5. JohninOshkosh says:

    Of course, when you play Notre Dame, you must genuflect to American network television.

  6. JoeyBats says:

    Is it “OPTIMAL” that PITT keeps playing PRIME TIME games in front of a nation wide TV audience and potential recruits….and keeps getting their heads bashed in?
    LATEST EVIDENCE = Florida State :-(
    Hopefully not again vs. the Irish.
    Must recruit better.
    Must play better.
    Must coach better.
    Must A.D. better.

  7. notre dame fans are sick, they get the best players year in and year out and still stink!!!!then their coach sends that young man to his death on a windy day in south bend!!!! should have been arrested!!!
