Notre Dame

  • Irish D grows thinner with loss of Tranquill
    Notre Dame’s defense may have reached the breaking point when it comes to injuries, with Irish coach Brian Kelly referring to the unit as “devastated.”The latest downer:
  • No. 2 Notre Dame routs Harvard
    SOUTH BEND, Ind. — Taya Reimer scored 14 points to lead No. 2 Notre Dame to a 97-43 win over visiting Harvard on Monday night.
  • Irish feel urgency to end on high note
    This time, Brian Kelly didn’t call it a debacle or second-guess one of his decisions, even as the roughest stretch of his tenure as Notre Dame’s coach got a little bit rougher.

Notre Dame athletes helped after Alabama tornado

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. – A group of Notre Dame athletes won friends at the University of Alabama long before anyone knew the schools were on course to play for the national football championship.

Two dozen of them traveled from South Bend, Ind., to tornado-ravaged Tuscaloosa during fall break in 2011. They cleared lots and hauled debris a few months after the storm left more than 50 dead in the college town.

Notre Dame cheerleader David Jones said the warm reception made Alabama “one of my favorite schools.”

Tide coach Nick Saban said the action by students at schools such as Notre Dame, Auburn and Kent State “speaks volumes for the kind of character and leadership that those people have.”

The “Fight for Tide” service project didn’t include any football players.
