How’d We Do Last Week?

As mentioned last week, I will feature the Most Interesting, Most Wildly Inaccurate, and Most Accurate Takes for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish from the previous week. Here we go!


Mamma Says!

I went ahead and watched the Waterboy after reading this. All time movie with some great college football cameos.

Wildly Inaccurate

What an IDIOT!

Hand up guys....this one was VERY bad. I thought the game plan would be taking him away, NOT just keeping things in front of him. Either way, it worked for the Irish as they didn’t give up a TD until the 4th quarter.


The Bellyman Cometh

Kyren was incredible all night. This won’t stop happening and Kyren will continue to be one of the most complete backs in Notre Dame history.

Now let’s get to the takes for the upcoming action featuring the Notre Dame Fighting Irish against the North Carolina Tar Heels

Cold Take

Isaiah Foskey.....More sack lunches.

Foskey is playing on another level right now. This makes me incredibly happy, but also a bit sad. I think he is playing himself into a first round pick THIS year, when initially it looked like he would need another year. I hope that he comes back next year, but at this point he is on track to break Justin Tuck’s sack record.

Hot Take

Kevin Austin....100+ yards and 2 TDs

Kevin Austin had a, “hot and cold” (I’ll see myself out) game against the Trojans last week. He has so much pressure on him and people quickly forget that this is his first year as a key contributor. He bounced back in big ways after shaky performances against Purdue and Cincy. The North Carolina defense is Swiss cheese and we will see a, “whoa” moment in which Austin takes a slant, screen, or something 50+ yards to the house. He hasn’t really opened up his stride yet this year and this is the game we get it. Austin has had a solid year, and I won’t be surprised to see him become a true alpha down the stretch.

Your Takes: Please leave your takes below (hot, cold medium-any temp). I will feature the Top Takes next week. GO IRISH!


Let Me Clear My Throat is one of my all time favorite songs. I had a genius idea that I put into the universe and somehow, someway, it made its way to Notre Dame Football.

DJ Kool and Doug E Fresh.....Hit it.
