Can the Notre Dame Fighting Irish catch a break? Notre Dame shouldn't need luck to beat the North Carolina Wolfpack, but it would certainly help. At what point did saying the phrase, "the luck of the Irish" be done ironically?
No, Notre Dame shouldn't need luck in this game, because it's the little things that decide games. Proper angles, wrapping up a tackle, points of pressure, concentration, firing off the ball, and so on and so on. Everything that is taught from pee-wee league on up is what decides games.
This is what has plagued the Irish this season. Perhaps it was because so many new players on defense had to play and instead of concentrating on the fundamentals of their skill set, they got too wrapped up in a defense that should have never have existed in the college game now and forever and to the depths of hell amen.

Just below this article is a thing called the "comment section," which in latin means "to vent, celebrate, and socialize." Or something like that. Please feel free to stop on in before the game and talk about the weather. No, seriously... we can actually talk about the weather and not look like polite assholes. Be civil, and be respectful- but not so much that future generations will think you are weak and prudish. Have fun and GO IRISH!
