This looks bad. Is that bad?

NCAA Football: College Football Playoff Semifinal-Cotton Bowl-Notre Dame vs Clemson Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish got blown out in the second quarter of the Cotton Bowl by the Clemson Tigers on route to a 30-3 loss. If you’re looking for a silver lining, or if you’re looking for some hope for the future — the stats really aren’t going to be your friend tonight.

Notre Dame was more than doubled up in total yards, and it gets worse when you look at yards per play.

A blowout loss is always tough, but under the spotlight that the college football playoff provides, it looks and feels much much worse. I dump these stats off on your lap to do what you will. I suggest drinking heavily if you haven’t already.
