Standoff comes to an end.

There are few details from a tense situation this afternoon after a man doused himself in gasoline and threatened to set himself on fire.

Around 5 p.m., police were able to come up on and subdue the man.

Divine season can continue for the Irish

October 25, 2012

SOUTH BEND — The idea that this Notre Dame season is otherworldly is a bit absurd to me.
I don’t think this season is touched by God because Notre Dame is a Catholic University.
But I do believe sometimes in sports, a team can get going, and despite logic or stats, can do remarkable things.
This year’s Fighting Irish are that sort of team.
Let’s start with the cold hard facts (not brought to you by any beer company).
Notre Dame is second in the country in fewest points allowed at 9.4 points per game.
The Irish are tied for ninth in sacks and 24th in interceptions.

But it was a win and the Irish faithful will take it, a sterling 7-0 record, and the No. 5 national ranking that goes with being one of only 11 unbeatens left in college football.
