How’d we do last week?

As mentioned last week, I will feature the Most Interesting, Most Wildly Inaccurate, and Most Accurate Takes from the previous week. Here we go!


Honestly, I appreciate the recipe, but I need some more instructions if I want to start making these. Get it together Great Yoga.

Wildy Inaccurate

Every person (including me) who said this game was going to be very close. I think everyone was feeling pessimistic, only for Ian Book to rub it in our faces.


Wow. Good stuff. Honestly this was just solid all around. Kudos to you xQuick. You go!

And now onto this week takes for the matchup between the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the Stanford Cardinal

Cold Take

Julian Love has an interception

Julian Love has been all over the field this year, but is yet to come up with an interception. This week the Notre Dame defense will be loading the box to slow down Bryce Love, which means a couple of things:

  1. A lot of pressure on K.J. Costello during passing situations
  2. A lot of one on one coverage

Love will have his hands full with the Stanford receivers, but I see him coming down with one to get his first interception of the year.

**Bonus clips of his defense last year vs. Stanford. His matchup against JJ Arcega-Whiteside will be a battle all night.

Hot Take

Alize Mack has career highs in catches, yards, and touchdowns

Mack is probably the happiest person that Ian Book played great last week. Mack’s 2 best games have come on Book’s only 2 starts. This is definitely not a coincidence, as he was particularly amped up before last week. Mack will be force this week and will open things up for the rest of the offense after they go to him early and often.

Your Takes: Please leave your takes below (hot, cold medium-any temp). I will feature the Top Takes next week. GO IRISH!
