The sports history articles here at TheSportsNotebook are being constantly updated each and every week. Here’s a look at the highlights of the most recent additions to the Sports Museum…
*A project aimed at covering all of modern Notre Dame football history is now complete and up to date. The period starts in 1975, when Dan Devine replaced Ara Parseghian, and it goes up to 2009.
As with all facets of our historical timelines, we stop at 2009, to honor the five-year waiting period observed by Hall of Fames. The 2009 cutoff works well with Notre Dame in any case, as Brian Kelly came on in 2010 and began writing a new chapter that’s still very much in development.
*Priority is being given to taking each baseball season, starting in 1975 and digging more in-depth, creating separate articles on teams that won division titles and game-by-game narrative accounts of postseason series.

There is also work being done in team histories. The project to cover the modern era of San Antonio Spurs history—beginning with the arrival of David Robinson in 1990–is now complete through 2009. We haven’t yet created a separate page to house all these articles, but for the time being if you just click the NBA History category, all the recent pieces are about the Spurs.
