At least two former Notre Dame football players will participate in the NFL Scouting Combine. Linebacker Darius Fleming told WSBT he has been invited to the event, held Feb. 22-28 in Indianapolis, and so has cornerback Robert Blanton. Fleming said he was invited via email, which he received Friday, the day after the Irish lost 18-14 to Florida State in the Champs Sports Bowl. Fleming said he will train at EFT Sports Performance in Northbrook, Ill., the same place former Irish running back Robert Hughes trained last year before the draft.

SOUTH BEND - The highly-anticipated football weekend is here and if you were anywhere near campus on Friday you know it's crowded. And some people are cashing-in on all the out-of-town visitors. It's a simple way to make some quick cash, by helping out some serious Notre Dame fans. You always see people selling parking on their lawn on game day, but renting out a home takes money making to the next level. Renters say skip the hotel, a home is the only way to go. "Walking into a house is a lot better than walking into a hotel," said Mike McCormick, a house renter.

SOUTH BEND -- Consider Notre Dame's punch-it-in problem solved. Kelly - "We had not put up enough points based upon our offensive yardage. And today was that day. And I think our guys are starting to understand it's not good enough just to move the ball, you have to put points on the board. " This was what that looks like. Six first-half possessions - six touchdowns. A season-high for yards and - of course - points. And zero turnovers for the 10th straight quarter. "If you told us we'd score every time we touched the ball in the first half, coming in, we'd be pretty pleased with that," tight end Tyler Eifert said.

A brand new college football season kicks off this weekend.  And with all due respect to Christmas, this is the most wonderful time of the year.   Here's why I LOVE college football. I love Joe - Pa, and whiteouts in Happy Valley. I love Defend the Rock, the World's largest Drum, and "Hey-ey-ey ey! SHOUT!" I love the rise of the Cardinal and the fall of Troy.   I love Sparty, Goldy, Bucky, Ralphie and UGA. I love Hook Em Horns and Roll Tide.

A few years back I was on streak in predicting the outcome of the Notre Dame football season. One year I picked the winner of every game in advance of the season. I can tell you that was pure luck because in recent years I have not done as well. So keep that in mind as I write my notes for 2011. Also keep in mind that while I have been to every home game since 1963 and have been the PA announcer now for 30 years, I have never been to a practice, wouldn't know the coaches if they wandered into my backyard, and I do not hang out at the athletic department.

I want to say a few words about the great Bubba Smith who died on August 3 rd . But to put Bubba in his proper perspective I need to say a few words about the 1966 Notre Dame Football team.  It was the greatest Notre Dame team I ever saw and I would argue that point with any hard core Irish fan, even those who remember the great, post World War Two Frank Leahy teams. How good were the '66 Irish? In a ten game season, they had six shutouts. Of the four teams that managed to score on them only one (Purdue with 14 points)

Results from the 2011 University of Notre Dame football ticket lottery are now available online. Ticket demand for the 2011 season is estimated to be twice as large as the previous season.   Nearly $2 million will be refunded this year to unsuccessful lottery participants. That $2 million figure is more than twice the refund amount from the 2010 lottery – even though the 2010 lottery featured seven games in Notre Dame Stadium compared to six in 2011. The Notre Dame ticket office will begin to mail those refunds the week of July 11. Both the USC game on Ocotber 22nd at Notre Dame Stadium and the September 10th Michigan game in Ann Arbor rank among the top 25 games all-time in terms of home and away ticket requests, according to Notre Dame.

SOUTH BEND -- Friday's news that Notre Dame wide receiver Michael Floyd will not be suspended from the University for his March 20th drunk driving arrest cleared the path for him to return to the field. However, Irish coach Brian Kelly said today that for now, Floyd remains suspended from the team. And he's still got a way to go on that path before being reinstated. "This is not about football," Kelly said. "Everybody has jumped to the conclusion that Mike Floyd is going to play football.
