Douglas Farmer has covered Notre Dame football for various outlets since 2008. The joke around the Notre Dame press box each home game is to ask Douglas what the spread is on all other games across the country, knowing he spends as much time (if not more) with an eye on the national landscape as he does on the Irish. While the other beat writers may be joking, those answers directly influence what games are on the press box TVs up until Notre Dame's kickoff. Well-versed enough to hold a conversation about any sport short of cricket, his offseason focuses are all forms of basketball.
