IT'S BEEN A while since the Irish's eyes smiled on Philadelphia, but it wasn't always that way. From 1952-74, Notre Dame played 16 times in Philadelphia and won most of those games handily. Here is a look at each game the Irish played here: Notre Dame 9, Penn State 0: Irish coach Knute Rockne seemed more worried about his team's depth than the Nittany Lions. "We have so few good men this year that every time a player goes down, I am worried about him getting up," said the coach.

The University of Notre Dame allegedly committed major violations in recruiting an Ohio high school football player, but the college denied the charges yesterday. A major college football coach, who requested anonymity, was quoted yesterday in the St. Paul Pioneer Press as saying that Penn State and Ohio State had turned in Notre Dame for alleged NCAA violations in the recruitment of running back Ki-Jana Carter, of Westerville South High School. The allegations come on the heels of an admission by Notre Dame coach Lou Holtz last week that he gave $270 total to two athletes while at Minnesota.

EAST LANSING, Mich. - Everett Golson threw a touchdown pass and ran for a score to help No. 20 Notre Dame beat No. 10 Michigan State, 20-3, Saturday night. The Fighting Irish (3-0) beat a top-10 opponent for the first time in seven years to give Brian Kelly a signature win in his third season. The Spartans (2-1) had won 15 straight at home. The streak included a win over the Irish in 2010 on a fake field goal in overtime that preceded coach Mark Dantonio's having a heart attack.

Notre Dame tight end Will Yeatman has been suspended from the team for the rest of the season but remains enrolled at school after being arrested on a charge of underage drinking at an off-campus party. Yeatman, 20, was informed of the suspension Tuesday, his mother, Bonnie, said yesterday. She said he plans to play lacrosse for the Irish in the spring and take part in spring football practice. Yeatman and Notre Dame center Mike Golic Jr., whose father, Mike Golic, is an ex-Eagle and co-host of "Mike & Mike in the Morning" on ESPN, and women's basketball player Brittany Mallory were among 37 people arrested at a house in South Bend during the early morning hours of Sept.

Brady Quinn tied a school record with four touchdown passes to lead Notre Dame to a 38-3 victory over Washington yesterday in South Bend, Ind.

He completed only two passes in the second half, one for 53 yards that set up the Fighting Irish's final score, but it hardly mattered. The sophomore finished 17 for 32 for 266 yards with one interception.

Julie Marco has coached middle school girls, high school girls and college women. Whatever the level, Academy of Notre Dame's first-year coach knows that fundamentals determine the success of field hockey players. "If they know the techniques, if they know the fundamentals, game strategy is so much easier," Marco said. "You can put in every play you want, but it won't work if they can't stop the ball, if they can't hit the ball. " Marco, a former head coach at St. Mark's in Delaware and at Villanova University, is trying to teach the fundamentals to her Notre Dame players.

ISSUE | ABORTION At Notre Dame, common sense prevails A letter writer was dismayed that the University of Notre Dame honored Vice President Biden at this year's commencement, because "Catholic bishops have called for Biden to refrain from receiving Communion because of the Obama administration's pro-choice stance" ("Tainted Biden honor," Sunday). The writer added that prominence apparently trumps doctrine at Notre Dame. I disagree. At Notre Dame, common sense trumps the outdated doctrine of a bunch of older men. |Tom Lees, East Norriton, tlees2@aol.com

Two players who failed to score in the first half helped propel North Carolina to its first Final Four appearance since the Tar Heels won the NCAA title in 2009.  Kennedy Meeks and Theo Pinson, who both went scoreless without taking a single shot in the first half, combined for 16 points after intermission as top-seeded North Carolina defeated sixth-seeded Notre Dame, 88-74, in the East Regional final Sunday at the Wells Fargo Center. The two finished a combined 6 for 6 from the field, with Meeks scoring 10 of the points.

FOLLOWING FRIDAY'S comeback win over Wisconsin, Notre Dame coach Mike Brey disclosed that he had hurt his calf in the second half, which required him to seek medical attention. For Sunday's East Regional final at the Wells Fargo Center against top-ranked North Carolina, Brey was in a walking boot to protect a torn muscle in his right calf. The energetic coach was slowed on the sideline, his steps studied and measured. He wanted his team to play the same way against the bigger and faster Tar Heels.

Roy Williams dresses well, makes a ton of money and coaches at one of college basketball's marquee programs. But lately the North Carolina coach's bio has read like the Book of Job. Sunday night, before his Tar Heels played Notre Dame in the NCAA East Regional final, Williams hobbled out of Wells Fargo Center tunnel. Williams, burdened by an ongoing NCAA probe into alleged academic fraud at the school, has become a one-man disabled list. As his limp suggested, two knee-replacement surgeries haven't worked well.

It's probably too simplistic to call Sunday's NCAA East Regional final at the Wells Fargo Center between top-seeded North Carolina and No. 6 seed Notre Dame a David and Goliath matchup, especially since David has already been a winner in this matchup. North Carolina (31-6) will seek its first Final Four appearance since winning the NCAA title in 2009. Meanwhile, Atlantic Coast Conference foe Notre Dame (24-11) will look to earn its second Final Four spot and first since 1978. North Carolina, with enviable depth, has everything on its side, including recent history and serious momentum.

Well after midnight, North Carolina's band had stopped playing. Walking in a hallway inside the Wells Fargo Center, a couple of horn players still euphoric from the Tar Heels' throttling of Indiana picked up on a bigger theme: the Friday night dominance of the Atlantic Coast Conference. "It's basically the ACC tournament again," one said of the road just ahead, after four ACC teams in two regions advanced to the Elite Eight. "Which stinks, because I don't want to play Virginia again," said the Tar Heel band man next to him. From the mouths of trombone players comes truth: The good news for ACC teams is that an entire half of the 2016 NCAA tournament has nothing but ACC teams.

Notre Dame keys The Irish are most effective when they get their transition game going, and point guard Demetrius Jackson is the ringleader. The matchup between Jackson and Wisconsin's Bronson Koenig will be a key. Jackson will look to push the action, while Koenig will stretch the Irish defense with his three-point shooting. The Irish have to keep Wisconsin's 6-foot-8 junior Nigel Hayes off the foul line. Hayes leads the Big Ten in free throw attempts with 256. He is shooting .738 from the foul line.

The official went over to the scorer's table at the Wells Fargo Center and said, "20 seconds for blood. " No great surprise: It was Steve Vasturia's blood. The 20 seconds weren't quite enough in the last minute. The St. Joseph's Prep graduate had to come out for a play. Vasturia got back out there with 19 seconds left. Plenty of time to be part of the play of the night, the biggest reason the Fighting Irish are still alive. Notre Dame was down by a point to Wisconsin. Irish coach Mike Brey told his guys, as they were about to full-court press, that they had one foul to give, to trap, and if a Badgers player broke through the trap, then to foul.

Notre Dame point guard Demetrius Jackson had a rough game for most of the evening, but the 6-foot-1 junior made several critical plays down the stretch to redeem himself and extend the Irish's season. After hitting one of his first 10 shots, Jackson scored six of Notre Dame's final eight points as the sixth-seeded Irish defeated seventh-seeded Wisconsin, 61-56, in an NCAA East Regional semifinal Friday night at the Wells Fargo Center. Notre Dame (24-11) will play North Carolina in Sunday night's regional final.

STEVE VASTURIA sat at the back corner of the visiting hockey locker room in the bowels of the Wells Fargo Center, looking as if he should still be sitting in high school, waiting for the day to end so he could get out on the basketball court. Vasturia has the face of a young teenager, prompting coach Mike Brey to label him the "baby-faced assassin. " But he also had that look of excitement that only youth can bring. Well, youth and playing one of the biggest games of your life just minutes from your hometown and pretty much down the road from your former high school.
