CHALK UP 3 LOSSES TO THE OBVIOUS

ESPN’s Bill Connelly released his INDEPENDENTS preview, and the SP+ has the Irish going 9-3. Obviously the three losses are to the Clemson Tigers, Wisconsin Badgers, and USC Trojans. If that happens, all good has left the world and I welcome our alien overlords.

BGI’s Lou Somogyi broke down Notre Dame’s strength of schedule throughout the Brian Kelly era. It really only strengthens the argument that 2016 was a season on an acid trip.

WHAT’S UP WITH RUNNING BACK RECRUITING?
