Pathetic Proud Boys Ruin Another Pride Month Event for Kids at Indiana Library

The Proud Boys are continuing their pathetic crusade against entirely voluntary Pride Month events for kids at libraries. This time, seven members of the far-right group, who claim to be protecting children, stormed a storytime hour at the Virginia M. Tutt library in South Bend, Indiana. They left after about 40 minutes, but library staff were so rattled they canceled the event. “This definitely came as a shock,” library system spokesperson Marissa Gebhard told WVPE. “We were not anticipating any problems...The library is a place of belonging, and it’s a place for everyone.” The extremist group have targeted several other storytime events recently, even pulling a gun on kids at a Nevada library. “This appears to be a tactic or strategy that the Proud Boys are using to harass, threaten, and intimidate members of the LGBTQ community,” midwest regional director of the Anti-Defamation League David Goldenberg told ABC 57.

Will Notre Dame now join the Big Ten? The future of the Irish has become murky

Will Notre Dame play USC for the Big Ten championship someday?. That question isn't as ridiculous as it would have sounded 24 hours ago. On Thursday, John Wilner reported that "USC and UCLA are planning to leave for the Big Ten as early as 2024." That is the next major realignment shakeup that is sure to be felt across the FBS. The Big Ten would join the SEC as a 16-team superconference, and both might not be done adding teams.

Throwback Thursday: Notre Dame Fighting Irish Football vs SMU, 1989

In some ways my freshman year at Notre Dame (1989) seems like it was just yesterday and is crystal clear, and in other ways it is just a total blur. This week is week nine in my series of the “unclaimed” Notre Dame Fighting Irish football national championship seasons, and this week I’m taking a look at the 1989 season. The game I’m going to look at this week is the SMU game, which I clearly remember as being FREEZING cold. I also remember my friends picking me up and starting the momentum of my getting passed up through the crowd to the top of the stadium and then being dropped on a bench when I reached the last row (ouch). Thankfully multiple layers of clothes softened my fall.

Report: Big Ten targeting Notre Dame to continue expansion

Reports emerged Thursday indicating that the Big Ten is poised to add USC and UCLA to its ranks within two years, but the conference apparently is not done there. According to ESPN’s Adam Rittenberg, the Big Ten may look to add further Pac-12 schools to its ranks after landing its current two targets. However, the bigger priority will be to try to convince Notre Dame to drop its independent status and formally join the conference.
