Former Notre Dame Fighting Irish football player Tommy Tremble showed what it means to be from Tight End University with the Carolina Panthers.
The current Notre Dame football team isn’t the only group that had some success this weekend. There are also a number of former Fighting Irish players that had a good weekend.
Right at the top of the list of those players is one of the Tight End U representatives in Tommy Trebmle.
Tremble is playing tight end for a bad Carolina Panthers team that doesn’t seem to understand what it wants to do on offense. It doesn’t help that they have a quarterback in Bryce Young who is struggling mightily in his first season in the NFL.
That’s why a quick look at Tremble’s stats will almost certainly confuse Notre Dame Fighting Irish fans. On Sunday, Tremble had just one catch. It only went for four yards. But he’s become quite the weapon when the Panthers get close to the end zone. Even if that’s rare.
At the time of the catch, it looked like the Panthers might actually make it a game against the Dallas Cowboys. His TD made the score 17-10. Carolina went on to lose 33-10 but it’s clear that Tremble is representing the Notre Dame culture well.
On the season, he has 12 catches for 77 yards but he also has 3 TDs. In other words, Tremble has caught a touchdown a third of the time.
Eli Raridon cashes in
Speaking of Tight End U, one of the tight ends that’s still a member of the Notre Dame football team had himself a good Saturday during the Wake Forest blowout.
Raridon not only had his first three catches of the season, but he turned them into 39 yards nad his first touchdown reception for Notre Dame.
Saturday might have been Senior Day, but the sophomore demonstrated that the future is bright at the tight end position.

When Notre Dame women’s basketball star Sonia Citron had to leave a game last week due to injury, there were concerns it might be season ending. Over the weekend, head coach Niele Ivey said that Citron suffered a sprained knee and will be out two weeks. That’s very good news considering the alternative.
Ivey made those comments in the aftermath of a very good win for the women’s basketball team. The Notre Dame Fighting Irish outlasted the Illinois Fighting Illini in the Shamrock Classic, 79-68.
The Notre Dame hockey team saw its seven-game regulation unbeaten streak on Saturday night when they were toppled by Minnesota 4-1. Thanks to a 4-2 win on Friday night, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish split the series with the Gophers and remain tied for second in the Big Ten. They fell to 7-4-2 overall but boast a 3-1-2 record in conference.
