From all of us here at Irish Impact and SPNT we hope that all of you have a great holiday season. It’s been a few weeks since we last got an episode out to you. Christmas, New Years and a trip to Las Vegas kind of got in our way but now that we’ve had...

Well the game didn’t go as we’d hoped out on the farm. Despite the loss to Stanford, the Fighting Irish received a bid to play in the New Era Pinstripe Bowl at Yankee Stadium in New York on Decmeber 28th. It’s amazing in one year to go from playing for the National Championship, to playing... The post The Irish Impact Podcast – Episode 30 – The Pinstripe Bowl appeared first on SPNT.tv.
Lots of blame to go around for the Irish’s loss in Pittsburgh. The QB play, the playcalling, the officiating, the ejection. Every which you look at it, it wasn’t the Irish’s best night. Turning the ball over 3 times and not forcing any turnovers on defense is just asking for trouble. With the loss, the...

Well, it wasn’t the ugliest game we’ve ever seen, it also wasn’t the prettiest game either. Neither defense played particularly well. The Irish had two interceptions that allowed Navy to stay in the game. There were only two punts in the game, both by Navy. With that said, the Irish defense stepped up when it...

We didn’t get the 50 burger that some of us on this show were expecting but the Irish were imposed their will on the Falcons over the weekend in the altitude of Colorado Springs. Tommy Rees played extremely well throwing 5 TD passes in a 45-10 route of Air Force. Up next, the Midshipmen come...

2001. The last time a Notre Dame team has beaten USC, at Notre Dame Stadium. 12 years ago. Since that win, Notre Dame has hired 4 head coaches and lost to Navy three times. The good news? The Irish have won 2 out of the last 3 against our heated rivals who come in staggered...

Revenge is a dish best served with turnovers. Tommy Rees had two turnovers inside the first 70 seconds of the game. The Irish quickly found themselves trailing 14-0. Despite the quick deficit, the Irish battled, and kept it close. Ultimately the defense spent too much time on the field as Oklahoma pulled away late. Now...

Boy was that ugly! Tommy Rees was trying to become the first quarterback in Notre Dame history to pass for 300 yards in 4 consecutive games to start a season. Well, that didn’t happen on Saturday. Kudos to the Michigan State defense. They did a great job mauling our receivers at the line of scrimmage,...

3 points at halftime Saturday night in West Lafayette, IN. Purdue was looking like a team ready for the upset. They were able to move the ball against the Irish on the opening drive but the game was only 10-3 at halftime. Whatever happened in the Notre Dame locker room at halftime worked because the […]
Ah yes, a reference to one of my favorite movies all time, Dumb and Dumber. Cam Neely as Seabass. Does it get any better than that? I thought about naming this episode Agt. Simon Donovan is Alive. But, that was a very very obscure West Wing reference, and I also didn’t want to spoil anything, […]
After a long offseason, the Irish came out on fire Saturday at Notre Dame Stadium scoring 14 points on 6 plays. The final score 28-6 may not have been indicative of the game itself though. Missed opportunities on special teams by both teams certainly didn’t help. The good news is game 1 is in the […]
After a long offseason, Nick and Kevin are back! We’ve missed all of you! Hope everyone had a great winter, spring, and summer. Now that fall is upon us, it’s time for Notre Dame Football! We’re looking forward to producing this podcast for you each and every week! A year ago at this time we […]
Well that didn’t go as planned Irish fans. Kudos to the senior class, the coaching staff, the players for an excellent 12-0 season (ok 12-1). You made Notre Dame relevant again (ahem Rick Reilly). The Irish were clearly outclassed, outperformed, outhustled, everything that could go wrong, did. It just wasn’t our day as Irish fans. […]
Well it’s been a month since we last recorded the podcast. Notre Dame STILL hasn’t played their bowl game. Can Monday get here any quicker? It feels like forever ago that Notre Dame wrapped up their 12-0 regular season at USC. Monday night, the Irish will take on the champs of the SEC the Crimson […]
We now know the opponent. The Irish now have a chance to knock off the defending champion Alabama Crimson Tide. Two programs with deep history, legendary coaches, players and more. Nick Saban has made it to this game now 4 times, 3 with Bama. Brian Kelly has guided only one team to a BCS bowl […]
I understand that the most important thing is to “Just Win Baby”, but that win Saturday night vs Boston College? Insert Homer Simpson sound byte “BOOOOOOOOORING”. Look I’m the biggest Irish homer there is but c’mon a 21-6 win over Boston freakin College isn’t going to help your National Title chances. I understand that K-State […]
The Luck of the Irish. That’s what it boils down to. The Irish got a break on an iffy pass interference call, a missed double jersey number call if that’s what you want to call it. Either way, the Irish squeak one out versus the Pittsburgh Panthers. Whew. 9-0. It sure was ugly. But in […]
Another week, another Irish victory, this time at the hands of the Sooners in Norman, OK Saturday night. It wasn’t just a win, it was an impressive win. It was a dominant win, it was a “is this really happening” win. Though the tell tale signs came early on the Sooners first drive when the […]
The proverbial trap game. The game sandwiched in between an emotional hard fought win (Stanford), and an opponent that is a major stumbling block to your National Championship dreams (Oklahoma). BYU, fresh off a thumping at home against Oregon State came into South Bend and put up a dogfight. In fact, they dominated the game. […]
It has been a long time coming. The Irish are now 6-0 on the year. Kevin didn’t think it was possible, neither did Seubs. Neither did a lot of people. No one thought the defense would be THIS good. Staring at a 1st and goal from the one yard line, the Notre Dame defense stopped […]
