Notre Dame Football: Hot and Cold Takes for Navy

Freshman RB Game

notre dame football hot takes Brendan McAlinden

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!


I was a HUGE fan of Squid Game, so Santacos92 unknowingly played to my emotions and got the nod this week! Well done with the Halloween themes everyone!

Wildly Inaccurate

San_Diegan is a victim of a week full of strong takes. We did not see Drew Pyne at all, as Coan continues to impress and Buchner has established his role. I think Pyne plays a role next year though, his time isn’t done just yet!


Godbacker! While not totally accurate, both sentiments described the flow of the game PERFECTLY. The defense gave up some substantial chunk plays that wouldn’t have happened if Kyle Hamilton was in the game.....but just like the Godbacker predicted, it was not enough and the Irish scored at will. GOOD ON YAH GB!

Now let’s get to the takes for the upcoming action featuring the Notre Dame Fighting Irish against the Navy Midshipmen

Cold Take

This will be 3 Point Game in the Second Quarter

The name of the game is ball control. Notre Dame will have a 3 and out early followed by a long touchdown or field goal drive by Navy. Against normal competition, this isn’t a big issue. However, Navy will take up nearly the entire quarter with 1 or 2 drives. This will leave the fans frustrated, but they will respond. The defense will settle in and the offense will click. I am just hoping this doesn’t bleed into the second half...

Hot Take

Logan Diggs AND Audric Estime both get TDs

Despite this one being close into the second quarter, the defense will force multiple 3 and outs and the offense will score very quickly. The coaches will lead with Kyren Williams in the first couple quarters, but will get Diggs and Estime some work soon after. We won’t see tons of Chris Tyree unless absolutely necessary as they will want him fully healthy heading down the stretch. Estime has been getting goal line looks as an H back. He will once again be in goal line packages, but this time with the ball in his hands. Diggs will break a long one this week right up the middle that makes us all go, “wow”. These two have very bright futures for the Irish.

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