The National Football Recruiting Authority
The most annoying part of the college football recruiting season is going to recruiting sites and see scouts rating players with little stars by their name...
The interviews are over. Last week Katie Couric interviewed Manti Te’o. This week Ronaiah Tuiasosopo, the man who pretended to be the woman Te’o loved, sat down with Phil McGraw. The facts are now clear. Also clear is that no one wants to confront the relationship life lessons revealed by Te’o's story. We apparently don’t want to see uncomfortable truths about love and texts.
The man who claims to have been behind the Manti Te'o girlfriend hoax told Dr. Phil he fell in love with the Notre Dame linebacker.
Mike Downey says we love spinning a good yarn, like Manti Te'o and his doomed girlfriend.
You could pick any of about 10 moments that defined Notre Dame’s 12-0 regular season in 2012. Perhaps none, however, had the impact of the Irish’s controversial goal - line stand to seal a win over Stanford in overtime...

SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) -- A Notre Dame spokesman says the university decided against disclosing the hoax against Manti Te'o immediately after an investigation commissioned by the school confirmed it because they didn't think it would be in the best interest of the teams playing in the BCS championship game or the individuals involved.

Notre Dame Football Recruiting: Update on Irish's Top Remaining Prospects

Irish Offer 2014 RB Scott
Notre Dame assistant Mike Elston stopped by Havelock High School in Havelock, N.C. on Thursday to get a look at 2014 running back Derrell Scott.
“Coach Elston came by the school,” Havelock head coach Jim Bob Bryant said. “He said they really liked his film. They just wanted to eyeball him. He was walking by and he saw him.
“When he saw he was 5-10.5 and 185 pounds, they went ahead and offered him.”
Notre Dame joins a lengthy early list that already includes schools like North Carolina, North Carolina State, Duke, South Carolina, Tennessee, Maryland, Florida State and Georgia Tech among others.
“His ability to make people miss, his speed, his power,” Bryant said when asked what makes Scott special. “He’s the total package.
“He has a 3.6 GPA, 4.4 in the 40, 35-inch vertical jump. He’s just a tremendous athlete and a hard worker.”
Even with all of the other offers, Scott was fired up to add the Irish to the list.
“He was real excited about it,” his coach said. “He knows Notre Dame has a strong tradition in football. Hopefully we’ll be able to get him out to one of their camps this summer so he can see the campus.”
Scott has already hit some of the local schools.
“He’s visited Duke, North Carolina, North Carolina State, East Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee,” said Bryant.
He expects to hit some more in the coming months.
“He’ll try to do some one-day camps and stuff this summer.”
ISD will have more with Scott and his offer from the Irish soon.
With 23 verbal commitments, Notre Dame has one of the best recruiting classes in the nation and with a strong finish it might be No. 1.
Notre Dame (17-4, 5-3) will renew its long-standing rivalry with DePaul (10-10, 1-6) Saturday afternoon in Rosemont, Ill. The BIG EAST battle is slated for 2 p.m. (ET) inside Allstate Arena. The Irish currently are in a four-way tie for fourth place in the BIG EAST standings.
On Dec. 10, 1862, Lt. Orville Chamberlain of the 74th Indiana Infantry wrote home to his family in Elkhart from his camp, 50 miles northeast of Nashville, Tenn. A few days earlier, the regiment had marched eight miles from its camp after hearing the sound of cannon to the east. “Our advance was cautious,” he wrote, “as we expected to meet the enemy.”
The war comes to Notre Dame.
From the blog Dr. Saturday: “Catfishing” became a household word a couple weeks ago when the nation learned of Manti Te’o and his fake/dead girlfriend, but Michigan was well ahead of the curve. In early January, coach Brady Hoke was telling a group of the … Continue reading →
