Brian Kelly has made his choice of Dayne Crist as the QB leader of the Fighting Irish. I’m ready to go and have a big year with the Blue & Gold.
SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — Dayne Crist has regained his role as Notre Dame’s starting quarterback, surviving a second knee surgery, arduous rehab and a strong challenge from teammate Tommy Rees during a close a competition for one of college football’s marquee positions.

“I can honestly say I think I’ve overcome a lot since I’ve been here,” Crist said. “One thing I think he (Kelly) knows about me is that I’m a fighter.”
Kelly pointed to Crist’s maturation, ability to navigate through two knee surgeries over the last two years and his overall improvement as a player. He said he expects Crist to be the starter for all 13 games beginning with the Sept. 3 opener against South Florida. (continue reading…)
All of the prelims have been completed and Saturday begins the 28th WACO Championship at Beaver Creek Country Club.
As usual, I’ll be there both Saturday and Sunday and am looking forward to strong competition, looking for the top spot in the championship flight and three other flights.
Beaver Creek’s course is looking pretty good for the tournament. After my round on Friday, in which I did not do any damage to the course, I can say it quite honestly is in much better condition than a few other places I have played lately.
There are many outstanding golfers in the field of 154 players and it all begins Saturday at 6:30 a.m.
