Welcome to the second season of Twittermania on Subway Domer. After a few weeks of rest and relaxation, your Emperor is back in the fold and ready to serve dishes of glory to all who deserve it.
The rules are simple because they really don't exist. Basically though, I have to see the tweet to qualify. It doesn't matter if it is out of this world awesomeness- unless I see it, it doesn't matter. So, if you see one worthy and you don't see me floating around, please send it my way.
In the past, this started out as a "Top 5" and then quickly turned into an absolute free for all. Now, I am determined to keep this to a "Top 10" each week and have poorly adjusted the above image to display that. (Maybe if we all ask Philly Kelly nice enough we may get a new one soon).
The running total for the contest can be found on the Twittermania Tab above, or by clicking this LINK.
Now that we got that out of the way, here are this weeks top tweets. Yes, there are more than 10. Bite me.
This spreadsheet will track the now famous, Twittermania. This is the second season for this particular contest and still... ETERNAL GLORY WILL BE THE PRIZE.no comments
Once again, Subway Domer will be providing an Anti-Preview for every Fighting Irish football game this season. This (as well as the post game Hangover posts) has been a tradition on Subway Domer since 2008. Yes, I have been blogging for a very, very long time (Subway Domer est. 2006). It is in that spirit, that I have decided to give a blueprint of what this season's Anti-Preview's will look like.
These follow the same type of path each year, but there are some adjustments, additions, nukes, and the like. This will be a bit of tease to get you started for this season if you are a veteran of this type of thing, and an awesome warning for those that just started to read Subway Domer.
Shit. This is probably why Subway Domer isn't bigger. Fuck it- LET'S GO!!!
The Subway Domer fell behind quite a bit and that means one thing... we break out the Podcast Machine.
With Notre Dame in more of a "lockout media" mode than we have seen in the past, the reports coming out of camp have been spotty. What we do know is that there are some injuries to deal with and the depth chart is getting shook up a bit, and it is not for the best reasons.
Join me, as I take a look at the depth charts, answer some questions, and generally sound like some asshole who woke up at 4 AM to do a podcast.
It was fun y'all!!! The podcast will also be available on iTunes in just a wee bit.

If you look closely, you can start to imagine what the uniforms for Notre Dame will be for the game against Navy in Dublin, Ireland. Factor in the now famous Irish Flag Cleat:
... and you now have Rock's House imploding. Love it.
Ishaq Williams, Notre Dame Football's massive athletic freak currently competing for snaps at Outside Linebacker, is possibly the best solution to take on the role that will be vacated by Tight End Alex Welch's recent knee injury. Williams played TE at Lincoln High in New York City during his prep career and was predictably a match-up nightmare with that 6'5'' frame which clocked in the 4.6's. His highlight reel (below) features some of his pass catching and run blocking ability. Even a tape to display his talent can't hide some defensive shortcomings that have followed him to South Bend. Tight End in Brian Kelly's offense could prove to be the best fit for a player of his immense physical gifts that quite frankly lacks the physicality and intensity you want in a front seven player. Especially one who needs to attack the quarterback. Some Pros & Cons on a move that likely won't happen because of the depth chart at OLB, but shouldn't shock fans if it did.
Great Shane of Subway Domer video fame decided to sit down and simulate the 2012 Football Season on NCAA Football 2013. He took notes as he watched the Notre Dame games unfold. Dear god, he's going to die at a young age...

Welcome to Bagpipe Monday on Subway Domer. Friends, fall camp is finally here and and you can just feel the season getting closer and closer to kicking off. Every year I try to warn people of the dangers of placing freshman in the 2 Deep or, heaven help us, as a starter. It's not just Irish fans that tend to do this each August, but really any college fan that follows recruiting fairly closely.
It's not that I don't think these players are very, very talented or that Notre Dame certainly needs help at some positions- it's just that we really have no idea how good, how ready, and even just how the staff sees where these kids fall in line. I'll I'm asking is that you control yourselves when discussing the freshman. They are here to save the program- but maybe not until 2014.
Don't forget to vote in this weeks poll (you can scold me later) and enjoy the pipes!
Kevin McDougal was the last Notre Dame quarterback to lead a National Championship caliber football team. Like many Irish fans, he has some pretty fond memories of the 1993 season that nearly finished with another title. McDougal joined former Irish teammate & classmate, Oscar McBride, on his podcast this week. The two offensive starters from that 11-1 squad rehashed some of the greatest days in Irish gridiron history. All that we remember as fans was dangerously close to never taking place on the field of play if legendary Head Coach Lou Holtz had gotten his way that autumn.no comments
There has been quite a bit of build up for Notre Dame football heading into fall camp. No, not because the Irish are a top 10 team looking to make a run at a national championship- although that would be pretty nice. No, once again the Irish are looking for a quarterback to start the season. Even though Dayne Crist technically started the 2011 season as the starter, I think it would be a fair statement to say that this season will see its 3rd different starter in as many years.
If you wanted to know why the media has been focusing almost exclusively on that position battle- the situation ND has put themselves in for these past 3 years is why.
At any rate, the opening presser was as showstopping as a game of tic-tac-toe at the Olympics. It was pretty basic, very narrow, and you got the sense that Kelly just wanted to get the presser over with and get his hands on the team. I'm totally OK with that. In fact, the best info I got from the presser was:
- KeiVarae Russell moving to CB.
- Davonte Neal will wear #19.
- Team is pretty healthy outside of Collinsworth.
- Kelly backed off of his fieldturf statement from the day prior (TROLL SO HARD BK!)
Everything else just seemed like fluff to me. I'm betting that there will be some delicious treats ahead- but not today. Today was just to say, "My name is The Subway Domer & I'm addicted to Notre Dame Football. Please, tell me more."
