It had been a dry first full week of practice for the University of Notre Dame Football Team until the morning of Monday, Aug. 17. Strong thunderstorms moved the team's workout inside the Loftus Sports Center in the morning, while the evening session was closed to all media members.
The big news of the day was the weekend announcement of the 2009 team captains. Jimmy Clausen and Eric Olsen will share the duties for the offense, Kyle McCarthly will lead the defense and linebacker Scott Smith will head up the special teams.
Our new content today starts with our daily practice report, followed by a media session with Coach Weis and interviews with the team captains and leadership committee.
