The Anti-Preview: #3 Notre Dame Fighting Irish VS USC Trojans

TROJAN BLOOD IS THE LIFE!

We finally made it to the last game of the regular season for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. At 11-0 and ranked #3 by the college football playoff committee, the Irish only need one more win to get in the pigskin final four.

It’s fitting that the final test comes against Notre Dame’s biggest rival — the USC Trojans. The “men” of Troy have had a pretty rough season, and the Irish have the chance to add many insults to many injuries here with a big win.

Anti-Preview The wonderful @phillykelly

It’s kind of crazy to think about where these two programs are now as opposed to just 10 years ago. It seemed highly unlikely back in 2008 that the swap would ever happen (even though these things are usually part of a cycle).

It’s actually kind of sad that these two programs can’t get with the program at the same time very often. It’s the greatest intersectional rivalry in college football between two of the bluest blue-blood programs in the country.

Having said that... I will shed ZERO tears when Notre Dame smashes TF out of Southern Cal this weekend. We better get to the Anti-Preview...

WHAT SHOULD I BE DRINKING?

There is only one acceptable choice for this week’s drink...

This is a drink of my own creation that has made its way into the hearts of Irish fans accross the country. There is no right or wrong way to drink it — JUST DRINK THE DAMN THING.

Trojan Blood

  • Mountain Dew Code Red
  • Gin
  • Ice

Mix personal amounts into an acceptable glass (preferably one with a solid and heavy base). Drink. Tweet your self with #TrojanBlood to gain glory.

WHAT SHOULD I BE EATING?

If I learned one great truth in life, it’s that just about anything is even better when wrapped in a flour tortilla,

Burritos

  • Peanut butter and jelly burrito
  • Chili burrito
  • Chicken & noodles burrito
  • Italian meatball burrito
  • Hawaiianmeatball burrito
  • Eggsvacado burrito

Of course... you could just get a regular burrito — the size of your head. Miss you every day La Bambas.

WHAT SHOULD I BE WEARING?

With one game JUST ONE GAME left, this is in no way a jinx or some voodoo shit waiting to happen. It’s for real, and it’s what Notre Dame is fighting for.

SOME OTHER STUFF

  • Dexter Williams has a chance to go over 1000 yards for the season — and he was suspended for 4 games.
  • Notre Dame will probably end Clay Helton’s career. That kind of stinks.

  • PLAYING FOR THE PLAYOFFS AND A REFERENDUM FOR OUR FREEDOM!!!!

AT THE END OF THE NIGHT...

Notre Dame is just too good for USC. There is no other way to say it other than that. The Irish are going to beat the ever living fuck out of Tommy Trojan, take his lunch money, and send him home crying to his momma about the big bad bully Brian Kelly. IRISH 49, USC 14

If you want or need any more motivation or moments where your throat swells up and the room gets a little misty... here ya go. PUT THAT SHIT ON REPEAT! BURN TROY TO THE GROUND! [whispers: Notre Dame is even better this time around]
