Joshua and Brendan set sail on a magical journey to preview Saturday’s game between the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and Navy Midshipmen - but came across some stormy seas which forced some tacking (it’s a sailing thing and it’s legit). In this episode:

  • Hello!
  • Notre Dame gets a commitment from 5-Star LB Drayk Bowen.
  • Reviews!
  • Favorite player of the Brian Kelly era.
  • Some technical difficulties with our sonar.
  • The college football playoff rankings.
  • Is there a path for Notre Dame to the playoff?
  • The Cincinnati disrespect or nah?
  • More scenarios.
  • The futility of playing in a wookie life debt game.
  • Some constructive criticism of the Notre Dame-Navy series. We’re here to help.
  • Game picks.
  • Stop patronizing Navy. They deserve better.

And plenty more weaved in and out of the show.
