Welcome back to the Triple Option on OFD. The Notre Dame Fighting Irish football team is on campus and ready to quarantine themselves for the summer. It’s a wild time to be alive, and the college football season seems as insignificant as ever — but here we are.

Let’s go!


Don’t lie to me. You’ve thought about it before. Once you realized that God does not care one tiniest bit about what team wins a football game, you may have been wishing for a genie’s lamp (because that’s absolutely real). So... what will you wish for in 2020?


Notre Dame is bringing in a record high number of graduate transfers for 2020. Safety Isaiah Pryor, wide receiver Bennett Skowronek, cornerback Nick McCloud, and running back Trevor Speights. I truly think all four will provide an impact for the Irish on the field, but clearly Notre Dame also coveted what they bring to the meeting room and the locker room.

Kelly sees these two as a natural fit.

Carter Karels finlly says what a lot of us are thinking... Jordan Johnson is underrated — BY IRISH FANS. Usually it’s the recruiting services that get called out for undervaluing a recruit, but this time it is us that have failed to properly give Johnson his due. Naturally, we are very excited about Chris Tyree and Michael Mayer — but what about Jordan Johnson? Why not Jordan Johnson?


The guys over at 18 Stripes continue their countdown of Notre Dame wins under Brian Kelly with wins #67 — #45 on the menu. There is no doubt about it... the Irish have a lot of wins over current ACC members. So many of these wins feel natural as part of the “I remember that one” tier.
