In the midst of a four-game losing streak, things are getting tough for the Notre Dame basketball team. With that in mind, fans are feeling increasingly doubtful of the team’s outlook.
According to the most recent SB Nation Reacts survey, 31 percent of Notre Dame fans said they are confident the team is headed in the right direction. That’s down from 36 percent last week and 44 percent two weeks ago. It’s the lowest mark of confidence this season.
Notre Dame fans had high expectations heading into the season and hope the team can live up to those hopes. There are plenty of teams, however, that are already appearing to surpass expectations on the year.
Fans around the country were asked which team has been the best surprise so far this year. 39 percent of fans gave that title to the Texas Longhorns, followed by 24 percent that picked Minnesota.
While hopes are still high for teams around the country, college football fans already feel pretty confident they know who will win next year’s College Football Playoff Championship. Even with a large portion of Alabama’s championship roster heading to the NFL, 42 percent of fans nationally think the Tide will repeat next season.
