I realize that pretty much nobody at Notre Dame is thinking about basketball today, but it’s worth at least a passing mention that the Irish men’s hoops team announced its 2006-07 schedule yesterday. In addition to the Preseason NIT, which we already knew about, the Irish play Maryland in D.C. on December 3, then host Alabama on December 7. (But who will Becky root for?)
A total of nine games will be nationally televised, which seems odd to me; why would a national audience want to watch the train wreck that will inevitably be Mike Brey’s last season? (Ah, optimism…) Oh, well. GO IRISH!
