Xavier Watts does indeed commit to Notre Dame over Nebraska, citing NFL history and also academic prowess

-Double-whammy for Nebraska, but at least it sounds like he has his head in the right place regarding the reasons why he wants to go to Notre Dame

-What’s this mean for the class, if anything? Was this just bound to happen? Not even Scott Frost can be perfect with in-state players for getting them to come to Lincoln?

Is there anything more patriotic than beating England in a huge sporting event right before Independence Day?

-That’s what happened yesterday with the U.S. Women’s National Team beating England, 2-1, to clinch their spot in the Finals of the World Cup. Alex Morgan scored a goal and pretending to be sipping tea—what a beautiful cocky celebration—what tops that for patriotism?!

-Also, SONG OF THE DAY:

The Drive: July 1st, 2pm

  • Nebraska Basketball to host an “Opening Night” event
  • Athlon ranks Adrian Martinez as the 9th best QB in the country
  • Everybody hates USA soccer and I love it
