5 questions with John Goodman


Back by popular demand, OK really just one polite e-mail, here is five questions with a Notre Dame football player.

Former Bishop Dwenger standout John Goodman is the first to answer the questions this season. Here is some insight on the Irish sophomore receiver.

What class is hard for you to get out of bed and go to?

Definitely, family and marriage. That is my 8 a.m. class on Mondays and Wednesdays. Eight a.m. on Mondays, you can imagine how hard that is to get up for.

If you had to eat the same thing every day for a full year, what would you choose and why?

I would say Chipotle, because it is just an unbelievable meal. I get the chicken burrito, double chicken, not too much rice. I'd get the green tomatillo, salsa and sour cream and extra cheese. You got to have extra cheese.

Other than a professional football player, what would your dream job be?

I'd like to be a curler. Yeah, a curler in the Olympics.

If you could change one thing about college football, what would you change?

I'd probably change the BCS system and go to a playoff system.

If you could have dinner with one person, alive or dead, who would it be and why?

Probably, Megan Fox, because she is beautiful.
