Slowly. Slowly is how Notre Dame usually gets itself into trouble on the road. It’s also how any chance to salvage the season will be accomplished. Slowly.
The Notre Dame Fighting Irish are on the ropes and under attack, and it is coming from all sides. Whether it be alumni, fans, haters, or the media- the Irish are once again the subject of ridicule. All of a sudden, these experts that touted the Irish up in the preseason, are 118% positive that Notre Dame just doesn’t have the athletes anymore. There’s no talent in South Bend according to these “experts.”
While the truth is somewhere in the middle (whether you want to admit it or not), Notre Dame has three losses by a combined total of 14 points. So... it’s not like they are getting their ass stomped on all game long. Just had to put that out there.

If you would like to join me in a “thing” this week... I’m just going to try and have some fun. I love a noon kickoff, and the kids are making me brunch for the game. We’re 1-3- and there ain’t no changing that, but I’ll be a manatee’s uncle if I’m going to let this crap bring me down (again).
