Cover Story, par deux | by Pat

We'd be remiss if we didn't mention that ND was featured on the cover of the college football preview issue of both Sports Illustrated and ESPN the Magazine. Both magazines went for the trendy regional cover angle so on SI, the three Irish captains (Quinn, Zibby, Travis) share the spotlight with Ohio State, Southern Cal, Texas, LSU, and West Virginia while on ESPN the Magazine, Quinn joins Frank Okam of Texas and Lawrence Jackson of Southern Cal as cover subjects.

Is it a good omen for Quinn that the last Irish player to appear on the SI cover for their football preview issue was eventual Heisman Trophy winner Tim Brown in 1987?


Brady is also on the cover of The Sporting News, with a nice backdrop of the library. Unfortunately there isn't an online picture available.
