Aaron Taylor, one of the best offensive linemen in Notre Dame Fighting Irish history to ever wear the golden helmet, recently went on the AP Top 25 Podcast with Ralph Russo. Taylor is one of the voices of college football for CBS Sports, and he made a pretty specific prediction for 2019:
“I predict Notre Dame’s going to win double digits again this year and not make the playoff. Everybody in the Notre Dame fanbase is going to be up in arms — extremely disappointed, and it will be then that we know Brian Kelly has arrived because the expectations are to make the playoff.”
Taylor spoke on a number of topics, such as:
- The top of the mountain with the Alabama Crimson Tide and Clemson Tigers.
- The Georgia Bulldogs closing the gap with Bama.
- The Joe Moore Award, with some memories of his old O-Line coach at ND.
- Notre Dame’s offensive line performance in 2018 after Quenton Nelson and Mike McGlinchey were drafted by the Colts and 49ers respectively.
- More Notre Dame talk with some insight into Brian Kelly 3.0.
