Notre Dame 99-to-0: No. 10 Drew Pyne, sophomore quarterback, likely No. 2

  Notre Dame 99-to-0: No. 10 Drew Pyne, sophomore quarterback, likely No. 2 Drew Pyne is used to being overlooked. That hasn't changed in Notre Dame's quarterback competition, as he tries to overtake Wisconsin transfer Jack Coan.NAME, IMAGE, LIKENESS Of the many areas of college sports that will find unique ways to incorporate money moving forward, one that will not need to is the Manning Passing Academy. A chance to work with the first family of quarterbacks is worth passing up other income streams for any college quarterback, including Pyne this summer.

The British and Irish Lions will return to Jersey after Saturday's final game against the Springboks in Cape Town.

The squad convened on the island in June for a 10-day training camp in preparation for their South African campaign.

They will be welcomed back on Monday to recuperate.

Deputy Chief Minister, Senator Lyndon Farnham, said it was "fitting" the Lions started and ended their campaign in Jersey.

"The training camp was a period of intense preparation, when they had limited time to enjoy the island," he said.

  Gatland says he 'did not take too much notice' of Erasmus video British and Irish Lions coach Warren Gatland said he "did not take too much notice" of the Rassie Erasmus video that dominated the build-up to the second Test against South Africa in Cape Town on Saturday. If the Lions triumph they will seal a fifth series victory in 14 tours of South Africa, and render the final Test in Cape Town next Saturday a dead rubber. The Springboks have won eight series since the rivalry began in the 1890s and one was drawn.

"This time, coaches and players will reunite with their families and will be able to properly see what the island has to offer."

No formal community events will be arranged while they are in Jersey and the cost of the visit is said to have been met by the team.

All players and coaches will be PCR tested for Covid-19 every day for their first 10 days in Jersey.

They will also be required to isolate until they receive a negative arrivals test, while those who are not fully vaccinated will isolate for five days from arrival.

The Lions won the first Test against South Africa but lost the second game last weekend, setting up Saturday's series decider.

Unfortunately not completely new material, but still enjoyable.The 12-and-a-half minute video opens with a montage of players arriving for the first day of training camp. Most interesting apparel: Romeo Okwara shaking a tub of popcorn at the camera while wearing a gray Lions logo long sleeve shirt that says “Salty” on the front. The players generally looked to be all business, but you knew fun seeker Jamaal Williams would break out into a spontaneous dance once he saw the camera.
