Sleep well Irish fans, Audric Estime had a monster game. (Notre Dame-UNC post game thoughts)

What a day! What a day! Final score Notre Dame 45, North Carolina 32. Great day to be an Irish fan. Thank God Notre Dame showed up in this much needed come-to-Jesus game. After exorcizing all the demons last week against California, it was great to see Marcus Freeman get his first away victory as head coach for Notre Dame. What was even better to … Continue reading Sleep well Irish fans, Audric Estime had a monster game. (Notre Dame-UNC post game thoughts)

Lines shifting towards Notre Dame. Here’s hoping we have an offense tomorrow (ND-UNC short pregame thoughts)

Well, apparently a lot of Notre Dame fans are feeling pretty optimistic in tomorrow’s matchup with North Carolina. Our matchup with the Tar Heels tomorrow opened in Vegas with UNC the 6.5 point favorite (meaning they thought they’d win by a touchdown). I try to make it clear for those reading not understanding Vegas talk. Now a day prior to kickoff Notre Dame finds themselves … Continue reading Lines shifting towards Notre Dame. Here’s hoping we have an offense tomorrow (ND-UNC short pregame thoughts)

Marcus Freeman exhales, as Notre Dame wins their first. (Notre Dame short Week 3 postgame thoughts)

Good lord, we got one! That game ended with the single largest exhale I think Notre Dame has had in a while. Marcus Freeman has been feeling all the pressure since his abysmal start to his Notre Dame head coaching tenure. Marcus absolutely needed his first win out of this one, and boy did we really try to let the Golden Bears continue the woes … Continue reading Marcus Freeman exhales, as Notre Dame wins their first.

After Marshall ripped our hearts out, let’s see if Drew Pyne can do better. (Short Notre Dame-California pregame thoughts)

So… How was your week?… Well in case you were wondering, I just got back the courage to say anything about my thoughts heading into the California game because my thoughts heading into the Marshall game were me pretty much highlighting 3 Marshall players who then proceeded to outcompete, outplay, and outperform the Irish at every given point in last Saturday’s heartbreaking (and very eye-opening … Continue reading After Marshall ripped our hearts out, let’s see if Drew Pyne can do better. (Short Notre Dame-California pregame thoughts)

Well… (Marshall just whooped the Irish)

I keep it short and sweet. Here’s my knee-jerk reactions to that offensive blooper reel we put out. Tyler Buchner couldn’t get anything goin! That pick to start off the second quarter was such a blown play. He can not be throwing that ball anywhere but on the opposite side of the wideout from that defender. Although that hurt us, what was even more painful … Continue reading Well… (Marshall just whooped the Irish)

Short thoughts heading into Marshall (Notre Dame pre-game Week 2)

I’ve had sufficient time to let the last loss marinate. After enough time to console myself (as is the case following any ND loss), I am happy to have tested our metal right out the gate. These big early season non-conference matchups are our true barometer for where we as a program sit. And after letting the initial crushing feeling subside, I’m fairly happy with … Continue reading Short thoughts heading into Marshall (Notre Dame pre-game Week 2)

Marshall’s 3 biggest weapons, and how The Irish will handle them.

Each Thursday this season I want to take a look at the 3 most dangerous players or facets of our upcoming opposition, and just provide short thoughts on each. So let’s delve into my 3 points of concern regarding the Marshall Thundering Herd and just how I think Notre Dame should be able to handedly nullify each. #1: Henry Colombi Last weeks stats vs Norfolk … Continue reading Marshall’s 3 biggest weapons, and how The Irish will handle them.

The Mourning After: ND loses after holding their own for 3 quarters. (ND week 1 recap)

Well… First off.. ESPN on ABC ain’t really our thing. We’re more of an NBC crowd. I’ll tell ya… I felt really good after 3 quarters. Like. Really good. That the Irish were finally going to prove the haters wrong. That we were going to justify our independent status. I thought our side was winning most of the game at the line of scrimmage(except for … Continue reading The Mourning After: ND loses after holding their own for 3 quarters. (ND week 1 recap)
