    Kory's Off-Campus Practice Thoughts - Team Building | Season Preview

    MARION, Ind. - The University of Notre Dame football team opened up preparations for the 2013 season Monday with a workout in helmets under comfortable conditions at the Shiloh Park Camp Retreat and Conference Center.

    The Irish departed at 9 a.m. from South Bend and arrived to camp just after 11 a.m. After getting settled into their accommodations, the team gathered for lunch before breaking into team meetings.
