After months and months of waiting and anticipation, Notre Dame will finally start the season against Texas on Sunday in Austin. It couldn’t come any sooner.
The offseason was unusually quiet, which made this whole quarterback controversy that much more unbearable than usual. It was all anyone wanted to talk about, and once they did find something else to discuss, people eventually landed back home with momma and the quarterback battle.
Of course, we should have known better. It didn’t take long after camp to create a whole new set of problems when SIX Notre Dame football players got arrested in ONE night during TWO different incidents.
Despite all of that, the excitement for the season is plentiful across Notre Dame nation. Can the Irish make the playoffs? That question stands alone to encompass all others. Part of that question will be answered on Sunday.
