If you read Insights enough, you know our opinion of Sports Illustrated's Stewart Mandel. He's one of the best writers covering college football these days and also writes an informative Mailbag every week. And he's using his national platform to raise money for good causes. In Mandel's latest Mailbag, he challenged fans from conferences around the country to donate money to Donorschoose.org. He didn't forget about Notre Dame, though, as he has a group for the FBS Independents.
People can donate until Sept. 24 -- and, I suppose, you can continue donating after -- upon which Mandel will name a winner. So far, the FBS Independents have raised a whopping $358, well behind the Big Ten's leading $5,373.
So far, the FBS Independents have one donor of money, kind of sad if you ask me. So, Notre Dame fans, step up for a good cause, helping America's schools.
You'll be glad you did.
