Josh welcomes Matt Brown to the show. Matt is the Associate Director-College Brands for SB Nation, as well as the author of the Extra Points newsletter. And yeah... he’s the mastermind behind the “Notre Dame went 4-8” meme that has been around since that 2016 season. In this episode:

  • Matt comes clean about the 4-8 meme
  • The weirdness of the 2016 Notre Dame Fighting Irish football team
  • The uncertainty of the 2020 college football season due to the coronavirus pandemic
  • Liberty is a dumb school
  • College football independence for the USC Trojans?
  • Conference realignment
  • Jim Delany and Notre Dame hockey glory
  • A mild and cautioned prediction for Notre Dame’s 2020 season

And a whole lot more weaved in and out of the episode.
