NOTRE DAME - Three Indiana State Police troopers were in the right place at the right time as thousands of fans made their way to the Notre Dame campus for the football game last Saturday. Troopers Brian McCall, Gary Runde and Ryan Purkiser had just finished their pregame traffic direction assignments and were on foot patrol when they decided to duck into the Hammes bookstore on campus to get out of the rain. Shortly before 2:30 p.m., somebody came up to the troopers in the bookstore and said there was a man on the floor who was not breathing.

SOUTH BEND -- It’s a start. But the training table that was introduced to the Notre Dame football players Monday night is by no means a finished product. “Right now,” Notre Dame associate athletic director for sports performance Mike Karwoski said, “we’re just starting out.” Starting out means that the training table exists for the football players at dinnertime in the recruiting lounge at the Guglielmino Athletics Complex. Down the road, expect it to exist for a number of other ND athletic teams.

The morning after, Sam Young still couldn't shake the thought of how hard it will be to pick up the pieces for anyone whose life was touched by Notre Dame football recruit Matt James. The 17-year-old Cincinnati St. Xavier High senior died Friday evening, almost instantly, police say, after the 6-foot-6, 291-pounder lost his balance while leaning against a hotel balcony railing at a Days Inn in Panama City Beach, Fla. "I talked to my buddy, (ND offensive tackle) Taylor Dever," said Young, a four-year Irish starter at offensive tackle who is in South Bend to prepare for the NFL Draft this month and to finish his final class.

Current Notre Dame athletic director Jack Swarbrick continues to tweak predecessor Kevin White’s vision for off-site “home” football games for the Irish. The latest to be unveiled – a Nov. 12, 2011 matchup with Maryland at FedExField in Landover, Md. – is the first to break through the web of television rites and conference red tape and allow Notre Dame to play a team within that school’s own conference footprint. "As we have looked to move one game a season around the country, playing in the Washington, D.C., area seemed a natural for us in terms of institutional fit," Swarbrick said.
