The Notre Dame Fighting Irish play host to the Miami Hurricanes on Saturday, and despite any old prose might suggest, the sky won’t exactly be blue and gray. Wasn’t that in New York anyway?
It looks like the weather will be outstanding on Saturday. Well, if you love the mild autumn air of the midwest.
The morning will start out crisp for all you tailgaters out there, and it will gradually warm up to a high of around 64 degrees. The game time temperature will be a very mild 60 degrees. All throughout the day, the sun will be peeking in and out from behind the clouds.
I can not tell you how fluffy the white clouds will be, but I’m betting it will look something like cotton candy in the air.
All of this is actually disheartening to me. When do we get these Florida and California schools inside Notre Dame Stadium in November? When does Notre Dame get to use the one geographical advantage it has over these warm weather schools?
Probably never, and when I see Geogia finally coming up and over the Mason-Dixon line for the first time in like half a century next year- it will be in September.
For all the things that people complain about when it come to the schedule, this will always stick out as my biggest beef. I know it’s petty and somewhat ridiculous, but it’s not.
With all that said, there should be a great deal of energy inside the stadium on Saturday against Miami, and despite the records and nonsense, after a few cocktails and perhaps having your contacts pop out of your eyes... it may look a little like 1988.
