The University of Notre Dame football team has completed its 2009 preseason practice schedule. As the University begins classes on Tuesday, Aug. 24, the team begins its game-week practice schedule in preparation for the home opener against Nevada on Sept. 5, 2009.

The und.com video crew was at practice each day during the preseason and produced over 100 original video pieces for our Irish football fans. This page is a one-stop shop for all of those videos, broken down by subject matter.
