Here Come the Irish 2006 provides analysis and coverage of the upcoming Notre Dame football season unlike anything else available. With 112 pages of the most in-depth and thorough football analysis–as well as high-quality, color photography—there’s no need to buy multiple preseason publications that only provide a taste of the Irish.

Led by Head Coach Charlie Weis and Heisman Trophy candidate Brady Quinn, the Irish are poised to make a run at the school’s first national championship since 1988. Here Come the Irish provides a thorough overview of the current roster and depth chart as well as comprehensive analysis of this season’s recruiting, and the award-winning freshman class it produced. The 2006 schedule is also evaluated in detail, including some potential problem games—and they may not be the ones you are thinking. A host of special essays and analyses are also featured, including an in-depth look at the role of the Notre Dame head coach and how Charlie Weis fits into that role from Scott Eden (author of Touchdown Jesus); a close look at the management system of the New England Patriots, and how Weis has brought the system he learned under Bill Belichick to South Bend; an analysis of the offensive playcalling patterns of Weis in 2005, and what that means for the 2006 roster; a look at the current crop of ND players in the NFL; an interview with legendary coach Ara Parseghian on the 40 th anniversary of his first national championship; and acclaimed statistician Pete Palmer provides a thorough analysis of why Coach Weis chooses to go for it in certain fourth down situations—and why he might want to do it even more. Here Come the Irish is by Irish fans for Irish fans, and provides a level of coverage national publications cannot match. With pages full of in-depth analysis and color photos—not ads—it is a true must-have guide to the 2006 season for any diehard fan.
