How’d we do last week?
Every week, I will feature the Most Interesting, Most Wildly Inaccurate, and Most Accurate Takes from the previous week. Here we go!
Thanks a lot for the visual San Diegan.....though the take was actually pretty good, despite the very weird grape soda reference.
Sorry NDFanDan.....your gut betrayed you!
I have to give credit where credit is due this week. My Cold Take was the Irish getting 5+ sacks and we finished the day with 6. My takes have been pretty average this year, but glad this one was spot on.
USC offense struggles, but Amon-Ra St. Brown is the lone bright spot.
I think overall the USC offense sputters most of the day. Amon-Ra St. Brown is one of the best freshmen in college football this year. There will be a lot of press on him before/during the game because of his decision to go to USC as opposed to the Irish, in addition to his brother’s legacy. I think he rises up to the pressure and is a lone bright spot amidst an otherwise poor showing by the Trojans. I hate USC, but I think this guy will be a force in college football for the next few years.
The Irish block a punt for a touchdown.
I think this game is close-ish for the better part of the first half. A turning point for the Irish is a blocked punt, which is returned for a touchdown. The special teams have been down this year, and this is a game where they find some redemption. This blocked punt propels the Irish to a dominant second half and their first college football playoff.
