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 a chance to digest it all, we’re back for one more episode for the 2013 season. I want to thank all of you for downloading the show each week and being so supportive of our show. Irish faithful are the best and we love hearing your feedback win or lose! Now on to this week’s show…

In this week’s show:

We briefly look back at the Rutgers game.

We discuss the season that Tommy Rees had.

The coaching carousel and Brian Kelly calling the offensive plays for the Irish in 2014.

The loss of players, particularly the early entrants who are leaving the Irish.

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 in a stadium not even built for football. We hope everyone has a great holiday and we’ll speak again sometime in 2014! Stay safe and GO IRISH!!!!

In this week’s show:

We briefly look back at the Stanford game.

What a crazy two weeks of football it’s been in college football.

The coaching carousel and how it might effect Notre Dame.

We talk about our favorite Christmas movies.

Bold Predictions and Score Predictions.

Happy Holidays from everyone at SPNT and Irish Impact! We’ll see you in 2014!

The Irish Impact Podcast – Episode 29 – Bend But Don’t Break

November 27, 2013

Congrats to all the seniors who played their final game at Notre Dame Stadium on Saturday. Though the game itself wasn’t beautiful it was great to see the snowflakes falling in South Bend. Brought back some great memories! Now the Irish are headed out to the West Coast to take on a Stanford team ranked […]

The Irish Impact Podcast – Episode 28 – Ugh

November 20, 2013

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 […]

The Irish Impact Podcast – Episode 27 – A Win is a Win

November 5, 2013

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 […]

The Irish Impact Podcast – Episode 26 – The Over Usage of the Word Misnomer

October 30, 2013

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 […]

The Irish Impact Podcast – Episode 25 – Bring on the Academies

October 22, 2013

Well, that was ugly. The Irish finally end USC’s winning streak in Notre Dame Stadium in breath taking fashion as we watched two offenses do their best to not score points. Irish quarterback Tommy Rees went down with an injury and the Irish offense went right with him. Luckily the Irish defense, coupled with USC’s […]

The Irish Impact Podcast – Episode 24 – They Couldn’t Wait to Fire Kiffin?

October 16, 2013

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 […]

The Irish Impact Podcast – Episode 23 – Turnovers Will Haunt

October 2, 2013

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 […]

The Irish Impact Podcast – Episode 22 – Here Come the Sooners

September 25, 2013

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, […]

The Irish Impact Podcast – Episode 21 – Wake Up the Offense

September 17, 2013

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 […]

The Irish Impact Podcast – Episode 20 – Make it Four Boilermakers

September 11, 2013

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, […]

The Irish Impact Podcast – Episode 19 – Michigan Week

September 4, 2013

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 […]

The Irish Impact Podcast – Episode 18 – We’re Back!

August 27, 2013

The Irish Impact Podcast – Episode 17 – At Least We Had Something Pretty to Look At

January 15, 2013

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. […]

The Irish Impact Podcast – Episode 16 – BCS Title Game Preview

January 3, 2013

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 […]

The Irish Impact Podcast – Episode 15 – Bowl Pick Em

December 4, 2012

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 […]

The Irish Impact Podcast – Episode 14 – Goin to Miami

November 27, 2012

12-0. How does it feel IRISHNATION!?! With a 22-13 win over the Trojans, the Irish sealed their trip to Miami January 7th. There they will most likely play the winner of the SEC Championship game between Alabama and Georgia who are both ranked 2nd and 3rd respectively in the BCS standings. How many of you […]

The Irish Impact Podcast – Episode 13 – On the Doorstep

November 20, 2012

With a 38-0 win over Wake Forest on Senior Day, coupled with losses by Kansas State and Oregon, Notre Dame finds itself at the peak of the college football landscape. Feels like forever ago since we’ve been able to utter that phrase. 19 long years folks. 1993 was the last time that the #1 sign […]

The Irish Impact Podcast – Episode 12 – Take Away the C from BCS and You Get?

November 13, 2012

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 Irish Impact Podcast – Episode 11 – Holy Pitt

November 6, 2012

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 […]

The Irish Impact Podcast – Episode 10 – Irish Dominate the Thooners

October 30, 2012

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 Irish Impact Podcast – Episode 09 – Irish Avoid the Trap

October 23, 2012

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. […]

The Irish Impact Podcast – Episode 08 – Not In Our House

October 16, 2012

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 […]

The Irish Impact Podcast – Episode 07 – Bring on the Cardinal

October 9, 2012

5-0. Haven’t given up a touchdown since Purdue on Sept 8th. Haven’t given up a rushing TD since 2011. Haven’t trailed in a single minute of 2012. Who are THESE Irish? Over 300 yards rushing against The U? I know it’s not same Miami squad as those vaunted teams from the early 2000’s but still. […]

The Irish Impact Podcast – Episode 06 – Irish Drop Michigan….Literally

September 25, 2012

How about them Fighting Irish? 4-0 for the first time in 10 years, heading into the bye week with a chance to build upon their early season momentum. What’s more surprising? How about this defense? With the loss of key starters before and during the seasons, the Irish secondary has been playing way above expectations. […]

The Irish Impact Podcast – Episode 05 – Defense Crashes the Sparty Party

September 18, 2012

Who is this Irish team? 3-0 to start the year? The defense has given up just 30 points in its first 3 games. It is the lowest point total that Irish have allowed in its first three games of the season since their last National Championship team allowed 27 in 1988. Michigan State NEVER reached […]

The Irish Impact Podcast – Episode 04 – “Rees”ons to Believe

September 11, 2012

If you had Tommy Rees coming into the game for the final drive for the Fighting Irish to lead them to victory, you’re lying. Despite the loud boos pouring over him at Notre Dame Stadium, Rees pulled through and led the Irish to a 20-17 win over the Boilermakers. In this week’s show: The Irish […]

The Irish Impact Podcast – Episode 03 – Onward to Victory

September 4, 2012

Notre Dame is victorious over the weekend vs Navy in a game that featured some great plays, great defense and efficient offense.
