Disregard that football in the Pod of Gold logo today. Imagine instead a baseball. Because that's what ND Insider and South Bend Tribune columnist Tom Noie is talking about on this episode as the Irish are set to play in their first College World Series since 2002. That's two decades for those scoring at home.

The Irish open CWS play Friday at 7 p.m. (ET) against Texas.
