How’d We Do Last Week

As mentioned last week, I will feature the Most Interesting, Most Wildly Inaccurate, and Most Accurate Takes for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish for the previous week. Here we go!


This is so wonderful. Kelly had some serious cheer going on in his face after this one. Winnie is a hero.

Wildly Inaccurate

Sorry BeefEater....who would have thought it but Shayne Simon stepped up and JOK was an absolute monster. Drew White also had the best game of the year. Still can’t believe they held Travis Etienne to 28 yards.....


Bluenoser you dirty dog!!! Calling the overtime win and a balanced attack from Rees was solid. 310 yards passing and 212 yards passing so you weren’t too far off. Love to see it!

And now onto the takes between the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the Boston College Eagles

Cold Take

Shayne Simon Has the Most Tackles of his Career

Simon has always had the physical tools and seems very well respected and liked by all his teammates. However, he has struggled to put it all together and always looked a bit hesitant at the point of attack. He has flashed, but has not done so consistently. HOWEVVVVVA, he put it together in the biggest game of his life where he played the most snaps of his career and delivered. He looks poised, decisive athletic, and most importantly, helped lead a defense that held Travis Etienne (leading rusher in ACC history for those wondering) to 28 yards. 28 YARDS!! He was also very poised against the pass. He needed a confidence boost like that to get comfortable to play to his ability. He did it last week and will respond this week with another confident and fast performance. I’ll sneak a hot one in here too.... look him have a strip of Phil Jurkovec just for kicks.

Hot Take

Chris Tyree has a 70+ Yard Touchdown

Kyren Williams is an absolute stud. He is one of the best running backs in college football and played his absolute heart out last week. I think they will want to monitor (ever so slightly) how many carries he gets this week because of the beating he delivered against the Tigers. He was a MONSTER in the pass game (see video below). With that said, I think they want to get Tyree going against a slower D-Line and linebacker group then the Irish faced a week ago. He has been quiet over the last couple weeks and will burst back onto the scene to remind people he is an elite talent. It will either be a screen from Ian Book or a counter off tackle that he will take the distance. I love Tyree and look for him to make a big impact on Saturday.

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