Notre Dame Distances Self from Bishop Jenky’s Slanderous Remarks About the President

Catholic Bishop Daniel Jenky might be regretting a comment he made recently about President Obama. During a sermon, Bishop Jenky said that Obama’s political policies were on a “similar path” to those of Hilter and Stalin.

“Hilter and Stalin, at their better moments, would just barely tolerate some churches remaining open, but would not tolerate any competition with the state in education, social services, and health care,” Jenky said in his sermon. “In clear violation of our First Amendment rights, Barack Obama – with his radical, pro-abortion and extreme secularist agenda – now seems intent on following a similar path.”

In addition to being a Catholic Bishop, Jenky is also a member of the Board of Fellows at the University of Notre Dame. In response to the Bishop’s sermon, members of the faculty at Notre Dame have created and signed a petition that asks Bishop Jenky to either “renounce loudly and publicly this destructive analogy” or resign from the Board of Fellows.

Some are arguing that Bishop Jenky’s quote is being taken out of context, but that he was just stating his political and religious belief that Obama should not be re-elected and that Catholics should not vote for him. Read the rest of this entry »



College Football 2011: Sooners and Seminoles Clash in Tallahassee, Ohio State and Miami Seek Redemption

University of Oklahoma Sooners Pennate

By Cabrone D. Brewer

It was a quiet weekend in Norman, OK, but even as head coach Bob Stoops and the Oklahoma Sooners rested during a bye week, they were still able to conjure plenty of noise in The Associated Press college football poll.

Without playing a game, the University of Oklahoma became the first school to hold the top ranking for the 100th time in the history of the AP poll. For the Sooners, reaching this historic milestone comes with a thrilling challenge.

Opening Weekend of College Football puts Spotlight Back on the Field

By Cabrone Brewer

College football’s kickoff weekend is never without its surprises on the field, but this season most of the opening day mischief came from the clouds above. Michigan and West Virginia had their victories cut short in the rain, while games at Notre Dame, Iowa and Tennessee all had serious delays due to severe weather near the stadiums.

And a media storm has begun to surface over Oklahoma and Texas as rumors place both programs looking at a move to the infant Pac-12.

Two of the weekend’s biggest surprises, however, came from the north Texas region. In a Friday night opening battle, defending Rose Bowl Champ TCU scored 25 points in the fourth quarter, but that wasn’t enough to keep Baylor from their first win over a ranked opponent since 2004, as kicker Aaron Jones booted a 37-yard field goal with 1:04 left to give BU a 50-48 edge over the #14 Horned Frogs. Bears’ quarterback Robert Griffin III threw for a career-high five TD passes.

From the new Cowboys Stadium in Dallas, a game that many thought would go down to the wire, turned into a rout. Turnovers and inexperience at several positions put third-ranked Oregon in the hole as fourth-ranked LSU kept the pressure coming to catch the Ducks’ off-guard 40-27. It was the first season opening game of two top-five teams on a neutral field since 1984 and the 34th consecutive nonconference game won by the Tigers — the longest nonconference-winning streak in the nation.

Can Boise State Pass the Test? College Football Week 4 Preview

Boise StateWith conference play (mostly) upon us, there’s a full slate of compelling games for the fourth week of the college football season, so let’s take a look at the best of the best.

Reminder: All ranking reflect the USA Today coaches poll, which has a bearing on the BCS.

#1 Alabama at #11 Arkansas— Boy, Mark Ingram didn’t miss a step, did he? The Crimson Tide’s Heisman winner came back with a bang last week and lit up Duke in another easy ‘Bama win. This week promises to be more challenging, as the 11th-ranked Razorbacks figure needs to put up some points behind Heisman candidate Ryan Mallet, who has thrown for over 1,000 yards in three games. The game is the first of three straight contests the Tide will play against ranked conference foes. Read the rest of this entry »



NHL Draft: Where Are All the Prospects Going?

nhl draft logoThe first round of the NHL Draft was held Friday night, with winger Taylor Hall going first overall to the Edmonton Oilers.

Perhaps not surprisingly, only one current college player was drafted. Center Riley Sheahan of Notre Dame was drafted 21st overall by the Detroit Red Wings.

Of course, many players who are drafted into the NHL will go to college, with the team drafting them maintaining the rights to that player.

Here’s the colleges where players who were drafted committed to:

Fighting Irish Finding a Home in Yankee Stadium

notre_dameNowadays, college football is played not only in college football stadiums, but in professional ones as well. Taking a cue from the University of Oklahoma Sooners and the Brigham Young Cougars (they are scheduled to play their season opener in the new Dallas Cowboys’ stadium), the Notre Dame Fighting Irish have entered into talks to play one of their games in the new Yankee stadium.

Thus far, no date has been decided upon, but the Yankees are in fact open to college football being played within their stadium. The Fighting Irish have expressed an interest in playing their 2013 match-up against the Army Black Knights in the stadium.  Read the rest of this entry »
