Is there anything that Steve Patterson cannot do? The man starred down the most storied college football program in America, and they blinked first. After weeks of controversy, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish will play a game in 2014 at Sun Devil Stadium.
The game is scheduled for November 8th, as the great Terrell Owens once said: "Get your popcorn ready." As a side note, if I ever get arrested I would like Steve Patterson as my lawyer.
The news was not all good in Sun Devil land, as the university announced earlier this week that softball head coach Clint Myers was leaving the program. Coach Myers is taking the same position at Auburn University to be closer to family. House of Sparky would like to wish him and his family the best.
