Alum pays $10m for Notre Dame Football Coach naming rights


brian-kelly-notre-dame-football-torii-hunter

Purchased naming rights are all the rage in college football these days. Especially when it comes to the head coaching position at a well known school. A very wealthy donor, almost always an alum, gives an endowment for the school in exchange for having the Head Football Coaching position named after them.

Northwestern did it in 2013. Michigan in 2014. Now Notre Dame Football joins the party in 2015.

PETA sends letter to Atlanta Falcons regarding Prince Shembo


prince-shembo

Prince Shembo should have never been drafted by any NFL team. You knew who he is and what he was during his college football days at Notre Dame. Even before he got to South Bend, the warning signs were there with Prince Shembo. The Atlanta Falcons selected him anyway and now they’re paying the price for it.  It remains to be seen if anyone else will take on Shembo at this point.

Hopefully, no one does. What makes this sad, tragic situation even worse is that it’s the Atlanta Falcons involved. Out of all 32 NFL teams, they know most of all about employing a dog killing player.

Michael Vick has kept himself clean these past few years, but let’s not forget what he did.

Ex-Notre Dame star Prince Shembo arrested for killing girlfriend’s dog


prince-shembo

It wasn’t until the NFL Draft interview process that former Notre Dame linebacker Prince Shembo was publicly outed as the alleged perpetrator in the Lizzy Seeberg sexual assault case. As Shembo was never charged with any crime in connection to Seeberg’s alleged sexual assault and subsequent suicide, it was illegal to name him as a suspect in the case.

Outing Prince Shembo at that time would be the very definition of libel, even though every single person with a vested interest or connection to Notre Dame football knew that Shembo was the supposed player in question.

It was the worst kept secret in college football. Just ask Google. Go research Prince Shembo auto completes in search engines and see what happens.

Brian Kelly would take his quarterbacks over Ohio St.’s QBs

As a Coach, you’re supposed to go to bat for your guys. It’s part of the job description. So you got to applaud Notre Dame football Brian Kelly on this one.

He truly believes in the two quarterbacks on his roster. Maybe a little bit too much. Of all the teams that Kelly could have named in his comparison, he picked the one team that….just have a watch below:

2015-16 preseason Top 25 college basketball rankings


kentucky-wildcats-airheads

Yes, I know the college basketball season just ended but it is still the perfect time to reveal my insanely early 2015-16 Top 25 college basketball rankings.  There are still a ton of x-factors as guys are deciding on whether or not they are going to enter the NBA Draft, players are transferring, and seven McDonald’s All-Americans have yet to make their college decision so consider these rankings a rough draft and expect an update in a couple of weeks.

Here is a list of which players have already announced they are transferring and where. Here’s a list of underclassman who have declared for the draft.

Leave a comment below if you think a team is too high, too low, not getting enough respect, or otherwise have an issue with something.
