Stanford Game Watch, ND-Navy 2018 Tickets, STEAM Fest

Hello San Diego Notre Dame Family:

I hope everyone had a safe & happy Thanksgiving. As we get into the Christmas season, our events slow down a bit, but we still have a big game watch & a volunteer opportunity for you:

Stanford Game Watch
Saturday, November 25th, 5:00 pm (Pacific Time)
Looking over the stats on my favorite CFB stats site, my conclusion is that Stanford and Notre Dame are two very evenly matched teams. There aren’t many categories where you can find a meaningful difference, which probably explains the game line (ND by 2.5) and ESPN’s power-rank matchup predictor (Stanford 50.2%, ND 49.8%). Stanford’s record is hard to extrapolate to this game, early season losses to USC and San Diego State and a Nov 2nd away loss to #25 Washington State contrast with a Nov 10th win over then #9 Washington which, interestingly, means that the game that decides whether Stanford goes to the PAC-12 championship game takes place two states north of and simultaneous with our game (WSU vs. Washington). Will an Irish quest for 10 wins + a possibly distracted Stanford team provide an edge for the Irish in Palo Alto? Join us to find out, this will likely be another great game. Here’s where we’ll be: Social Tap – Downtown San Diego adjacent to Petco Park • Crust Pizzeria – Carmel Valley • Rosati’s Pizza Pub – Vista

ND-Navy 2018 in San Diego

Miami (FL) Game Watch, Halloween Candy Collection, Nativity Prep Thanksgiving

Hello San Diego Notre Dame Family:

This week we’ve got the game watch info, a heads up regarding ND Navy 2018 tickets, and the Halloween candy collection and Nativity Prep info:

Miami (FL) Game Watch
Saturday, November 11th, 5:00 pm (Pacific Time)
Quite possibly the biggest game of the year this week, Irish fans. Those of us from the “Catholics vs. Convicts” era always have a special desire to beat the Hurricanes of Miami, and much like those days, this game has National Championship implications. #7 Miami comes into this game undefeated at 8-0, but the stats definitely give the Irish an edge. Notre Dame is 18-7-1 vs. Miami, and are 3-0 in the Brian Kelly era. Perhaps more significantly, since beating Toledo in late September, the Hurricanes have scored at most 31 points (Duke) and otherwise have been sub-30, while the Irish with one exception (Georgia) haven’t scored less than 33, finishing at nearly 50 in 5 of those games. Miami has some respectable defensive stats though (#12 in scoring defense, #11 in tackles-for-loss, #4 in turnover margin) so we’ll need to be stout on offense. The Irish are currently 3.5-point favorites, and once again the ESPN Power Index gives the Irish a 62% chance of winning. Oh yes, as the big game of the week, ESPN is hosting College Game Day from Miami and the prime time broadcast on ABC will be called by Fowler & Herbstreit. In summary: huge game. Whether you are an alumni, parent of a current (or former) student, or just love Notre Dame, we’d love to have you watch the game with us! Here’s where we’ll be: Social Tap – Downtown San Diego adjacent to Petco Park • Crust Pizzeria – Carmel Valley • Rosati’s Pizza Pub – Vista

Wake Forest Game Watch, Halloween Candy Collection, Nativity Prep Thanksgiving

Hello San Diego Notre Dame Family:

In addition to the weekly game watch, this week we’ve got details on two of our more popular community service projects:

Wake Forest Game Watch
Saturday, November 4th, 12:30 pm (Pacific Time)
What a difference a year makes! Last year after 8 games, the Irish had won only three, and were headed for a first week in November loss to Navy. This year, our beloved Irish are 7-1, having lost by only 1 point to the current #2 team, AND we find ourselves in the running for a spot in the national championship playoffs. Awesome! This week we have another very winnable game vs. 5-3 Wake Forest. Probably nothing to worry about here, the Irish remain formidable on the ground (#6) which matches up well against the Demon Decons’ 89th-ranked run defense. Wake’s only notable stat is that they’re #1 nationally in tackles-for-loss (9.25) but even 17 TFLs didn’t result in a victory over Florida State. Bottom line, this should be a good game to watch the Irish build a comfortable lead, then spend the rest of the game socializing with your Irish family at one of our game watch locations. Kickoff is again perfectly timed for a late lunch. Whether you are an alumni, parent of a current (or former) student, or just love Notre Dame, we’d love to have you with us! Here’s where we’ll be: Social Tap – Downtown San Diego adjacent to Petco Park • Crust Pizzeria – Carmel Valley • Rosati’s Pizza Pub – Vista

NC State Game Watch, Steam Maker Fair Volunteers

Hello San Diego Notre Dame Family:

Huge game this week, perhaps you’ve heard?

NC State Game Watch
Saturday, October 21st, 12:30 pm (Pacific Time)
In the wake of last week’s domination of the Trojans, the #9 Irish face another tough opponent this week, the #14 Wolfpack of NC State. ESPN’s power index gives Notre Dame a 76.9% probability of scoring their first victory over NC State in a series that currently stands at 2-0. Unlike last week’s matchup however, this week pits our 6th-ranked rushing offense (341 YPG) vs. a 6th-ranked rushing defense (for reference, UGA is #4). On the other hand, NC state’s passing defense ranks a dismal #122, which will make an interesting matchup with ND’s #118-ranked passing offense,
so this may be the week we finally see an exciting Irish passing game. Really the only other notable stat is that NC State struggles in the red zone, reaching the end-zone only 60% of the time. The game line favors ND by 7.5, so oddsmakers agree that the Irish will probably win this one, but it looks like we’ll have to do it through the air. Kickoff is perfectly timed for a late lunch, which means it’s a great week to join us at one of our three game watch locations! Whether you are an alumni, parent of a current (or former) student, or just love Notre Dame, we’d love to have you with us! Here’s where we’ll be: Social Tap – Downtown San Diego adjacent to Petco Park • Crust Pizzeria – Carmel Valley • Rosati’s Pizza Pub – Vista

USC Game Watch, Volunteers Needed for STEAM Fest

Hello San Diego Notre Dame Family:

Huge game this week, perhaps you’ve heard?

USC Game Watch!
Saturday, October 21st, 4:30 pm (Pacific Time)
Well, they don’t get much bigger than this. The #11 Trojans of So. Cal. travel back to the house that Rockne built to face our #13 Irish. ESPN’s matchup page power index has the Irish as 78.3% likely to take this one, and current Vegas odds give the Irish the game by 3.5, just a hair over the usual home advantage bonus. Comparative stats are really close for this game. Notre Dame has an edge over USC in Scoring Offense (#13 vs. #36), Run Offense (#5 vs. #53) and Red Zone Conversions (#18 vs. #74). The Trojans have an edge over the Irish in Passing Offense (#19 vs. #116) and Sacks (#7 vs #58). So it looks like this one will be decided based on who steps up on defense and blunts the opponent’s strength. USC is beatable, and this game is in our house. If you’re local, you definitely want to experience the energy of a victory over USC surrounded by your local ND Family! Whether your an alumni, parent of a current (or former) student, or just love Notre Dame, you’re welcome to join us! Here’s how to find us: Social Tap – Downtown San Diego adjacent to Petco Park • Crust Pizzeria – Carmel Valley • Rosati’s Pizza Pub – Vista

UNC Game Watch, NDWC Wine Tasting & Fall Crawl

Hello San Diego Notre Dame Family:

Here are the events coming up in the next few weeks:

North Carolina Game Watch!
Saturday, October 7th, 12:30 pm (Pacific Time)
Our beloved Irish have another very manageable opponent this week in 1-4 UNC. Looking over the usual key points, the only one that might give one pause is that UNC managed to pile up 35 points against #17 Louisville a few weeks ago. While it’s best not to look past these games, UNCs weaknesses (#105 in scoring defense, and #113 in rushing defense) seem to play right into Notre Dame’s strengths (#14 scoring offense, #7 rushing offense, Josh Adams, #7 in the country with 130 YPG). Should be a great non-stressful game to get together with your local ND family, have some lunch and cheer the Irish to victory. You don’t need to be a club member, ND grad or even San Diego resident to join us for a game watch, you just need to love ND football. Here’s how to find us: Social Tap – Downtown San Diego adjacent to Petco Park • Crust Pizzeria – Carmel Valley • Rosati’s Pizza Pub – Vista

Miami (OH) Game Watch, Club Luncheon (10/5), ND Women Connect (10/15), Fall Crawl (10/14)

Hello San Diego Notre Dame Family:

Here are the events coming up in the next few weeks:

Miami (OH) Game Watch!
Saturday, September 30th, 2:00 pm (Pacific Time)
One of the most important things to know about this next game is that NBC is televising it on their NBCSN channel, so it will only be available to those who receive that network. If you’re one of those left out of this one, it’s the perfect weekend to join us at one of our game watch locations! You’ll see the game and get to hang out with your local Irish family. As for the interesting game tidbits, the Irish have only faced the Redhawks of Miami (OH) once before, prior to WWI (1909), a game the Irish won 46-0. The line on this game isn’t quite that large (Irish by 21) but it looks like the Irish are a good bet to come away with their 4th win of the season. You don’t need to be a club member, ND grad or even San Diego resident to join us for a game watch, you just need to love ND football. Here’s how to find us: Social Tap – Downtown San Diego adjacent to Petco Park • Crust Pizzeria – Carmel Valley • Rosati’s Pizza Pub – Vista

Georgia Game Watch, Hesburgh Lecture (9/28), Club Luncheon (10/5)

Hello San Diego Notre Dame Family:

This is a great time of year – the students are back on campus, fall sports have begun, and the local Club events pick up steam. On the sports front, the football team starts the season 1-0, and Irish volleyball and men’s soccer are also undefeated. All three teams include students from San Diego, including two freshmen on the football roster, one on the volleyball team and one on the men’s soccer team! Check out UND.com for schedules, rosters and where you can see the teams compete on your TV (or PC). Good luck to all the fall sports teams, and especially to our local students! Here are the details on upcoming events, hope to see you at one or more of them!

Georgia Game Watch!
Saturday, September 9th, 4:30 pm (Pacific Time)
In the wake of a convincing win against Temple, our beloved Irish have cracked the top 25, entering the AP poll at #24. This week presents a great chance to climb a few more notches, as #15 Georgia travels to the house that Rockne built. UGA and the Irish only have one match-up in their long and storied histories, a January 1981 Sugar Bowl matchup in which UGA bested the Irish 17-10, so not much history to apply to this particular contest, other than an opportunity to even things up. As I write this, Notre Dame is the betting favorite, but the game is predicted to be close. Game time is perfect for having some great food among friends and watching a football game, so please join us at one of our three fantastic locations. You don’t need to be a club member, ND grad or even San Diego resident to join us, you just need to love ND football. Here’s how to find us: Social Tap – Downtown San Diego adjacent to Petco Park • Crust Pizzeria – Carmel Valley • Rosati’s Pizza Pub – Vista

Yesterday was Mother’s Day – a holiday that holds special meaning for our University, which is named after Mary, the Blessed Mother. On May 21st, the University of Notre Dame community will gather together to honor Our Blessed Lady, to celebrate the mothers and women of Notre Dame and to bring San Diego’s Notre Dame community together in prayer. Whether you are an alum, a mother, grandmother, or aunt of an alum, the mother of a current or the mother of an incoming student, you are invited to bring the entire family and join us for this second annual event. At our Mass, as well as at others celebrated around the country, the mothers and women of Notre Dame will be specially recognized and receive a blessing. Our Club will host a reception following the Mass to provided an opportunity for parents, alumni and friends to meet each other and to welcome the incoming Notre Dame students in our area. This is a special invitation to remember in gratitude the women who supported us as we attended Notre Dame, sacrificed to make it possible, and the women who have contributed in building our world-class university through their studies, teaching or philanthropy. Consider inviting the special woman in your life to join you. If that is not possible, come to include her in our prayer intentions.
