Steve Palazzolo, Pro Football Focus "It is the deepest league in the country, and every team is capable of making a run in March. Our guys will need to be ready to face a challenge each time they take the court." — Irish men's basketball head coach Mike Brey on his team's ACC schedule "The university identified as a priority from the outset making scholarships and financial aid a desti- nation for part of the revenue from the NBC agreement — and that decision now has impacted, literally, thousands of students, some of whom might not otherwise have been able to come to Notre Dame." — Notre Dame vice president and James E. Rohr director of athletics Jack Swarbrick on NBC agreement revenue surpassing $100 million mark contributed to Notre Dame financial aid "Having Jeff around every day is providing a mentor-like environment for a number of our players. Jeff can pass on a lot of life experiences for those guys. Just having Jeff in the building on a day-to-day basis is a bonus for us. He can sit down and have dinner with them and talk about experiences. Those are invaluable." — Head coach Brian Kelly on former Irish standout and current defensive analyst Jeff Burris "His process-ability skills are off the charts, and I think when you throw those three different sports together and you're processing like he has the ability to do, I would agree with him 100 percent that he's probably benefited from all three sports." — Jim Welling, DeShone Kizer's former high school basketball coach ( "I thought Will did a tremendous job today. Will is a terrific football player, and he is an even better teammate. I love everything about him." — Houston Texans quarterback Brock Osweiler on former Notre Dame wide receiver Will Fuller's NFL debut ( "If Texas emerges as a playoff threat — or, at the very least, turns a corner to win eight or nine games and cool the hot seat talk surrounding coach Charlie Strong — Kizer's performance will come to be viewed as an immensely impressive data point. And he followed it up by completing 15 of his 18 pass attempts in a rout of Nevada last weekend." — Sports Illustrated's Chris Johnson on ranking Irish QB DeShone Kizer among the top five in the Heisman race OF THE WEEK "The mindset stays the same! With the support of family, friends, team- mates, and fans this will be minor! GO IRISH."
