| No Comments | No TrackBacks
Outside, it has felt like summer training camp for most of the week, but on the calendar, today was just the second practice of the spring season for the Notre Dame football team. The Fighting Irish will be back on the field tomorrow, four weeks away from the Blue-Gold game (April 21).
