Joshua, Jude, Brendan cautiously open up the podcast portal to preview the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and their opponent this week, the Virginia Tech Hokies. In this episode:

  • HELLO!
  • You ain’t ready for this turkey story.
  • Drew Pyne is the main subject because Drew Pyne is the main subject.
  • Reading the tea leaves from media availability this week.
  • Why is the Virginia Tech crowd a thing? Like - why?
  • Brendan begins his rundown of the Hokies.
  • VT has a pretty stale offense, and we find many ways in which to describe it as such.
  • Dax Hollifield is the Sith clone of J.D. Bertrand.
  • These turkeys just don’t look very dangerous at all. They’re farm turkeys.
  • Jon Tenuta’s wild adventures and the home of his heir.
  • Finding another tight end to “use” other than Michael Mayer.
  • Ice Cream.
  • Cincinnati is a villain still.
  • Keeping an eye on the rest of the season.
  • Do the Irish hit the QB transfer portal next year?
  • Tommy Rees and his playcalling... what exactly makes sense?
  • Feelings about NOT losing two regular season games in a row.
  • Weekly picks from around the country.
  • A good old fashioned fight about the Iowa Hawkeyes.
  • Addressing Isaiah McKenzie’s BS.
  • Let’s get past the loss.

And plenty more weaved in and out of the show.
