After a weekend of fence building and sunbathing, it’s time to break out the Notre Dame triple option.
RECRUIT, RECRUIT, RECRUIT
We all know that Marcus Freeman has cranked up recruiting at Notre Dame football, and when you see the Fighting Irish currently have the No. 1 class for the 2023 cycle, the proof is in the pudding.
The Irish don’t just have class #1 – this is shaping up to be one of the best Notre Dame classes in recent memory. As good as it is now, we have high expectations for the rest of the cycle. According to their national authors’ most recent 247 crystal balls, Notre Dame is the leader for three other blue-chip players.
Aside from those three, the Irish are still in the middle (if not leading) for 5-Star QB Dante Moore, 4-Star CB Christian Gray, 4-Star WR Rodney Gallagher, 4-Star WR Jaden Greathouse, 4 -Star OL Charles Jagusah and 4-Star CB Micah Bell.
The Irish are hot and could go nuclear this summer.
Notre Dame places a high value on a college degree and is one of the key selling points on the recruiting path. Congratulations to everyone who graduated on Sunday!
That’s what it’s all about. So proud of our boys and everything they achieve. Congratulations Notre-Dame Graduates! pic.twitter.com/bRgXtFN5Ad

And oh yes… Stephon Tuitt and Jerome Bettis also graduated from Notre Dame on Sunday. Must be something with those Pittsburgh Steelers.
A WIND BECOMES A BREES
The New York Post published that Drew Brees, color commentator on NBC’s Notre Dame, was on his way out to do something else.
Dree Brees countered with a – NOT SO FAST, MY FRIEND. In fact, while dealing with the issue, Brees did more to muddy the waters than clean the thing up.
Despite media speculation about my future this fall, I’m currently undecided. I may work for NBC, I may play football again, I may focus on business and philanthropy, I may train for the Pickleball Tour, the Senior Golf Tour, coach my kids, or all of the above. I’ll let you know

Andrew Marchand and the NY Post stand by their story.
DIGGS AND TERRIBLE TWEET
Irish RB Logan Diggs posted a recruitment reminder of a USC edit from a couple of years ago on his Snapchat story. Of course…message board posters and awful twitter accounts overreacted like a kid when denied a 4th chocolate chip cookie.
