10/31/17 - Notre Dame redshirt senior LT Mike McGlinchey (6-7, 312, 5.27, #68) had an up-and-down performance against N.C. State senior pass rusher Bradley Chubb (6-3, 275, 4.84, #9), a projected top-10 pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. Along with Quenton Nelson at left guard, McGlinchey was dominant in the run game, but his struggles with edge speed in pass protection showed on more than a few occasions. Entering the season, scouts had concerns about his ability to stay on the blindside in the NFL, and his performances against the top defenses on the schedule (Georgia and N.C. State) back up those concerns. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
10/24/17 - McGlinchey is a vital cog in one of the country's best running attacks (7.06 yards per carry). He has been dominant, collapsing the left side regularly to open holes. He had a couple of high-profile pass protection lapses against Georgia early this season, but that part of his game has improved as the season has gone on. - AP College Football
10/03/17 - OL Mike McGlinchey has been a stalwart up front as Notre Dame has eclipsed 400 yards rushing two times this season. Prior to the 2017 campaign, the Fighting Irish had topped 400 yards only once with Brian Kelly as coach. McGlinchey has first-round talent written all over him as long as he stays healthy.
09/25/17 - Inside the League's Danton Barto, an ex-Rams scout, tweeted that Notre Dame's Mike McGlinchey "has all the tools you want," but his "best position" will be right tackle in the NFL. - InsidetheLeague.com
09/11/17 - As Saturday night turned into Sunday morning following Georgia's 20-19 victory over Notre Dame, Fighting Irish offensive lineman Mike McGlinchey took the blame. "It's awful, absolutely awful...it came down to execution at the end and I blew it," said McGlinchey, a 6-foot-8 1/4, 315-pound left tackle who turned down the NFL to try to help Notre Dame rebound from a 4-8 season. McGlinchey held himself responsible for missing the block that led to Georgia linebacker Davin Bellamy's sack of quarterback Brandon Wimbush and linebacker Lorenzo Carter's fumble recovery that ended Notre Dame's chance of rallying past the No. 13 Bulldogs. The loss dropped the Irish (1-1) out of the Associated Press Top 25 rankings. Notre Dame is at Boston College next week. "Our defense played its heart out. Everyone had their doubts about them and they stepped up," McGlinchey said. "That last play was my fault. We played our hearts out in the fourth quarter." Coach Brian Kelly, who was brusque in ending his postgame conference, insisting things won't "snowball" as they did in 2016 when Notre Dame lost seven of its eight games by eight points or fewer, was in a better mood Sunday and didn't fault McGlinchey. "I've never felt like there's one play that determines a game," Kelly said. "It was just a one-on-one scenario. That's a guy (Bellamy) that's going to be playing in the NFL." - AP College Football
