ofd podcast Brendan McAlinden

Joshua, Jude, and Brendan quickly compose themselves to talk about the 31-14 loss to the Alabama Crimson Tide in the College Football Playoff Rose Bowl. In this episode:

  • Joshua messes up the score and we talk about it.
  • We are live-watching the Ohio State - Clemson game and talk smack that we now regret just minutes later.
  • Notre Dame’s conservative offense.
  • Brian Kelly’s spicy post-game presser causes an eruption on the podcast that covers; recruiting, narratives, and math - and math always sucks.
  • Notre Dame’s wide receiver issues over the years (2017 is key in this conversation).
  • Taking risks.
  • Talking about transfer quarterbacks because this is where we are.
  • We don’t feel like buckets of death after this game.
  • Some New Year’s thank-you’s.

And plenty more weaved in and out of the show (like a whole lot more but I forgot to take notes).
