  1. 2015 Moose Krause Award Presentation: A Twitter Recap

    Feb 24, 2015, 11:00 AM EST

    Monday was a special evening, as the Monogram Club presented its highest honor—the Moose Krause Distinguished Service Award—to women’s basketball alumna Ruth Riley (’01) during Notre Dame’s 68-52 victory over Louisville at Purcell Pavilion. Though many people know Riley for her accomplishments on the court, which include helping lead Notre Dame to the 2001 national…

    Sep 11, 2014, 10:47 AM EST

    As mentioned in the Monogram Musings, the Michigan weekend marked the fourth annual Lou’s Lads Foundation Reunion & Scholarship Dinner. Dozens of Coach Holtz’s former players and managers returned for the event, which was held in the Monogram Room at the Joyce Center. The Lou’s Lads Foundation is dedicated to preserving the and supporting the…

  4. Monogram Club Musings: Tobacco Road Tour

    Mar 8, 2014, 1:27 PM EST

    On July 1, 2013, Notre Dame officially joined the Atlantic Coast Conference. Beginning with men’s soccer’s showdown against North Carolina in September, the Fighting Irish have been competing in the ACC for six months. But perhaps it was this past weekend that truly marked Notre Dame’s arrival in its new conference. With seven Fighting Irish programs competing…

    Feb 18, 2014, 3:01 PM EST

    Notre Dame’s first year in the Atlantic Coast Conference is in full swing, and beginning on Wednesday, Feb. 26 and continuing through Monday, Mar. 3, seven Irish programs will compete in North Carolina in a six-day span.

  6. Monogram Club Musings: BYU Edition

    Nov 26, 2013, 10:30 AM EST

    It feels like Temple was in town just yesterday, but believe it or not, this past weekend marked the final home game of the 2013 Notre Dame football season. For the second consecutive year, the BYU Cougars visited South Bend, and once again the Fighting Irish came through with a hard-fought victory.  On Senior Day,…

  7. More Than A Jacket

    Nov 11, 2013, 5:41 PM EST

    In case you’re not a regular visitor to our website, we just wanted to share this new story and video on last week’s letter jacket ceremony. Andrew Clark (Emilio Estevez) wore it in The Breakfast Club. Tim Riggins (Taylor Kitsch) rocked one in Friday Night Lights. Finn Hudson (the late Cory Monteith) on Glee. If…

  8. God, Country, Notre Dame

    Nov 11, 2013, 11:07 AM EST

    On Friday, November 8, 2013, in honor of Veterans Day, members of the Monogram Club staff and board of directors visited our nation’s heroes at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Md. (just outside of Washington, D.C.). Currently awaiting confirmation on his appointment as Brigadier General, board member Colonel Bryan Fenton (’87, manager)…

    Nov 7, 2013, 11:10 AM EST

    Last night, the Monogram Club had the distinct honor of presenting letter jackets to over 100 student-athletes, in recognition of earning their first varsity Monogram at Notre Dame. Close to 300 guests, including parents, family members, coaches, administrators, and faculty members enjoyed the ceremony in Club Naimoli. See below for a look back at the evening…

  10. Letter Jacket Look Back

    Nov 6, 2013, 8:28 AM EST

    Aside from moving into a new office, setting up my computer, and rearranging some furniture, I’m pretty sure helping with the letter jacket ceremony was the first meaningful task I did as a member of the Monogram Club staff. Literally. I started April 1, and the ceremony was held on April 3. Even though I…

  11. The Letter Jacket Ceremony

    Nov 5, 2013, 11:45 AM EST

    Tomorrow evening, the Notre Dame Monogram Club will present more than 100 student-athletes with letter jackets in recognition of receiving their first Monogram. Though letter jackets have long been a part of the Monogram Club, it was only recently that this special event was established. The following feature was written by Pete LaFleur (’90), and…

  12. Monogram Club Musings: Navy Edition

    Nov 4, 2013, 2:43 PM EST

    While USC is Notre Dame’s biggest rival, Navy is its most admired. The annual matchup always makes for a memorable weekend, as the two programs have a tremendous amount of respect for one another. After last year’s game in Dublin, the Fighting Irish and Midshipmen resumed their historic series back on familiar soil this Saturday in…

  13. Monogram Club Musings: USC Edition

    Oct 22, 2013, 3:37 PM EST

    Notre Dame. USC. A classic fall Saturday in South Bend. Nighttime in Notre Dame Stadium. This rivalry needs no introduction. As always, the big matchup between the Fighting Irish and Trojans brought a huge crowd to campus, and a number of special guests and groups watched as the blue & gold defeated USC, 14-10. Here’s…

  14. Monogram Club Musings: Shamrock Series Edition

    Oct 8, 2013, 1:06 PM EST

    For the fifth consecutive year, the University of Notre Dame took the spirit and energy of a home football weekend on the road, and once again, the Fighting Irish came through with a win, making it 5-for-5 in Shamrock Series games with a 37-34 victory over Arizona State. Like San Antonio, New York, Washington, and…

  15. Strong And True: Earning A Monogram

    Oct 7, 2013, 9:33 AM EST

    Throughout the 2013 season, Fighting Irish Digital Media has been releasing a series of Strong and True videos each Thursday afternoon. The latest “webisode” focuses on the Monogram Club’s recent honorary Monogram presentation to Irish head coach Brian Kelly. In case you missed it over the weekend, watch the great video below featuring Coach Kelly…

  16. Bridging The Gap Between Legend and Legacy

    Oct 2, 2013, 6:37 PM EST

    From presenting Brian Kelly with an honorary Monogram to hearing from University Vice President and Director of Athletics Jack Swarbrick (’76), an action-packed morning kicked off before the sun came up at last week’s Monogram Club Board Meeting. By the time lunch rolled around, some board members may have been ready for a nap on the…

  17. Irish Softball, Wounded Warriors Team Up For A Spectacular Sunday

    Oct 1, 2013, 6:29 PM EST

    On Saturday, Notre Dame lost and it was frustrating. On Sunday, Notre Dame lost—twice—and it was awesome. As I mentioned in this week’s Monogram Club Musings, it can be easy to get wrapped up in what happens on the field at Notre Dame Stadium during the fall. For some, an Irish defeat might as well…

  18. Monogram Club Musings: Oklahoma Edition

    Oct 1, 2013, 12:43 PM EST

    During football season, it might seem easy to define a weekend based on what the Notre Dame Stadium scoreboard reads at about 7 pm on Saturday. By that measure, this past one was a disappointment. But as we all know, it’s about so much more than what happens on the gridiron. For the Monogram Club,…

  19. Monogram Club Musings: Michigan State Edition

    Sep 24, 2013, 8:54 AM EST

    After two straight away games, the Monogram Club Musings are back with a wrap-up of Michigan State weekend! As is often the case with games involving the Fighting Irish and the Spartans, Saturday was a slugfest, but Notre Dame prevailed, 17-13, thanks in part to Cam McDaniel’s tie-breaking touchdown in the fourth quarter. Without further…

  20. Monogram Club Musings: Temple Edition

    Sep 3, 2013, 5:25 PM EST

    Last year, Notre Dame opened the season across the pond against Navy, one of its oldest and most historic opponents. This past weekend, the 2013 football season kicked off right here in South Bend versus a first-time foe – the Temple Owls. Behind a fast start, the Fighting Irish picked up a 28-6 win, which…

  21. NLWA

    Jun 25, 2013, 10:51 AM EST

    In a world of acronyms, NLWA was a new one to which I was introduced when I joined the Monogram Club Board. NLWA: The National Letterwinners Association. (Yes, even though spell check is telling me that “Letterwinners” is not one word, and even though it’s the NLWA – not the NLA, Letterwinners is one word.)…

  22. I CAUGHT A PASS FROM TOMMY REES!

    Jun 12, 2013, 8:25 AM EST

    Last night, a sold-out crowd of 600 women attended the Kelly Cares Foundation’s Football 101, a fundraising event benefiting breast cancer research. I have had the privilege of attending this event – twice. And I look forward to attending it again. Football 101 teaches women the basics of the game: running through drills with current…

  23. Fantasy Camp: It’s Game Day.

    Jun 7, 2013, 10:03 AM EST

    The big day has arrived. The 2013 Notre Dame Football Fantasy Camp squads will take the gridiron in the hallowed House That Rockne Built this afternoon. The guys will run out of the tunnel and hear their named called over the stadium speakers. They’ll dress in the same locker room and stand on the same…

  24. Fantasy Camp: Building A Brotherhood

    Jun 6, 2013, 7:03 PM EST

    To the average person, the concept of Notre Dame Football Fantasy Camp probably sounds crazy. Take a few days off from work, leave your family behind, and come to South Bend for a week for the chance to live and breathe the experience of being a Fighting Irish football player (complete with Trick Shot Monday).…

  25. A Friendly Fantasy Camp Reminder: Stretch, Stretch, Stretch

    Jun 6, 2013, 9:26 AM EST

    I’m starting to wonder if this is the busiest week of the year for athletic trainer Rob Hunt. Unfortunately, the first practice of the 2013 Notre Dame Football Fantasy Camp saw a couple of players sidelined with injuries. With participants ranging in age from 27 to 73, perhaps this should come as no surprise. With…
