From a blog post at SI.com:
Kovacs played a little in the season-opening win against Western Michigan, but he figured his contribution would be limited to special teams against the Fighting Irish. Throughout the game, coaches asked him if he was ready as he stood on the sidelines. He told them yes, but he chuckled inside. "Like I'm going to get in the Michigan-Notre Dame game," he said.
Came across an SI article on our walk-on safety Jordan Kovacs. I always like reading stories like this, its almost like we have our own Rudy (minus the suck).
