Brian Kelly takes blame for Notre Dame's 4-8 season

Brian Kelly isn't making any excuses for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish's performance this season, saying all the blame falls on his shoulders.

"There are no bad football teams," Kelly told reporters Monday. "There's just poorly led football teams. I led this team poorly."

Notre Dame coach Ara Parseghian's legend won't soon be forgotten

Few coaches have been a better fit at Notre Dame than Ara Parseghian. This was no mere fit; this was a bespoke suit, although only as a figure of speech. The Parseghian who came to South Bend in December 1963 never stood still long enough for a tailor to measure him.

After Irma, Miami returns to practice, in Orlando

Miami began practice Sunday surrounded by palm trees and sunny, warm weather, but the football program was 235 miles away from home.

While its Coral Gables campus remains closed and many parts of South Florida deal with continued power loss and cleanup after Hurricane Irma, the football team began to take the slow steps toward normalcy by returning to practice at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex.

Washington State joins the playoff conversation with win over USC

As expected, Friday night's showdown between No. 5 USC and No. 16 Washington State featured a College Football Playoff contender and a Heisman Trophy candidate.

Not as expected: The Cougars are that team and their quarterback, Luke Falk, is that candidate.

'He was our King Arthur': In letters, former Notre Dame players honor the late Ara Parseghian

When legendary Notre Dame football coach Ara Parseghian fell ill this past summer, many former players inquired about seeing him, perhaps wanting to tell him goodbye one last time.

Parseghian, who had developed an infection after hip surgery, wasn't physically strong enough to accept visitors, so his family told the players to write him letters. Parseghian's wife, Katie, and his children promised the players that he would hear their words.

I hope the Buckeyes get their s%*t together, if they keep playing like they have been this season will be disappointing. Perhaps the dismantling of Rutgers 56-0 and Urban's coaching always helps.

No. 7 Georgia rolls to 41-0 shutout of Tennessee

There would be no frantic finishes or dramatic comebacks in the latest edition of the Georgia-Tennessee rivalry.

The seventh-ranked Bulldogs made sure of it.

Jake Fromm threw a touchdown pass and ran for two more scores Saturday as No. 7 Georgia rolled to a 41-0 blowout of Tennessee. The Volunteers were shut out for the first time since 1994 and suffered their most one-sided home loss since 1905.

Is the new Notre Dame ready for prime time?

And in the seventh week, Brian Kelly and his Fighting Irish rested from all the work they had done. Kelly saw the progress they had made, and behold, it was pretty darn good.

Irish start College Football Playoff campaign after taking out USC

The season's first true playoff elimination game delivered.

Notre Dame is in the mix for the top four. USC is not.

The Irish completely outclassed a sloppy Trojans team, storming out to a four-touchdown lead en route to a 49-14 win at raucous Notre Dame Stadium. Coach Brian Kelly's team applied a familiar formula -- big-chunk runs with a bevy of ball carriers, opportunistic defense and timely passes -- to record its fifth straight win, and its first over a ranked opponent.

The Eagles, Best Buy and science camp: Our favorite Nick Saban stories on his 66th birthday

It's Halloween, which means it's Nick Saban's birthday. What do you get the guy who has five national championship rings, a seemingly indestructible machine of a program ranked No.1 and is the sport's highest-paid coach? Well, we don't know, either. So rather than try to figure it out, we're just going to tell some of our favorite stories about the coach, including a bunch you likely haven't heard before.

It looks like we could have an all SEC championship game this year.

I’m not sure how I feel about this. Alabama did have a better overall record but Ohio State had a fantastic season as well. Arguments could be made for both sides.
