The Anti-Preview: #22 Notre Dame Fighting Irish VS Miami-Ohio Redhawks

New, 11 comments

This week's Anti-Preview for Notre Dame football, is all about the Triple B's and quickness.

Anti-Preview The wonderful @phillykelly

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish kind of on a roll right now. You don’t even need to forget about the loss to the Georgia Bulldogs right now - because their roll is even better, and a one point loss to them, is really looking like one of the best losses in the country (I promise that this morbid thought is legit come CFB Playoff time).

So, the Irish kicked the green asses of the Michigan State Spartans, brought home a prop for a cheer squad, and are looking to equal last year’s win total. Standing in the way...

MIAMI-OHIO REDHAWKS

Notre Dame welcomes the MAC back to South Bend. This time, the Irish fifth year transfer feeder school brings with it one of the most well-liked assistants of the Kelly era, Chuck Martin.

The Redhawks are 2-2 and who the shit knows how good they really are. After last year’s losing streak, and then winning streak... maybe we aren’t supposed to know.

I don’t know. We’re going to breeze through this one.

WHAT SHOULD YOU BE DRINKING?

5:00 game? Yeah, it’s the perfect time slot to roll into a bourbon binge for the day. Here’s a video of Irish people drinking bourbon. Enjoy!

WHAT SHOULD YOU BE EATING?

When I think of Miami, I think of the school that I passed over to attend Eastern Michigan. Yep... sure worked out for me. I also think about getting lost down around there one day and ending up in some German looking village in Indiana. SO OF COURSE WE ARE EATING BRATS!

WHAT SHOULD YOU BE WEARING?

Seeing another “red” team coming into Notre Dame Stadium has me a little worried. Add that to people wearing a shade of blue that just seems to find new ways of hiding in a crowd, and it could be bleak.

I think I have a solution that will still let you wear your crappy The Shirt...

At the very worst, we can sing Christmas songs.

WHAT’S THE BEST THING ABOUT THIS GAME?

There’s no easy way to say this - but there is no BEST THING about this game. If the Irish win big, it’s no big deal. If they win by a close margin, people will lose their minds.

If Notre Dame loses... BURN THE NATION DOWN TO THE GROUND.

5 REASONS TO HATE MIAMI-OHIO

  1. You have to make reference to them being "Miami of Ohio" to know what we're talking about.
  2. Wally Szczerbiak.
  3. They have a tree on campus that rips friendships apart.
  4. Students have a touching fetish with a turtle.
  5. The ultimate "high-risk, low reward" game. 5:00 on NBC Sorts Channel

SHAMROCK STARS

Shaun Crawford. Until proven otherwise, Crawford is the greatest playmaker on the team.

Dexter Williams. Gets his work in early and throws down ridiculous numbers.

AT THE END OF THE NIGHT

Is Notre Dame for real? Are they able to come off of a two game winning streak on the road, be at home, take on a MAC team, and kick the crap out of them?

Perhaps.

I think the Irish are going to get real physical in this game and run, run, run. The strength of the offensive line, a stingy defense, and gut punch combos will be far too much for Miami to handle. IRISH 45, REDHAWKS 13
