Running wild in hell
Brendan McAlinden

Jude and Brendan ditched Joshua this week to travel to distant lands - but no matter. The OFD Roster is deep, and Matt Greene was plugged into the podcast machine this week to talk about the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and college sports in general. In this episode:

  • Notre Dame’s recruiting effort in the 2022 and 2023 class - but we ain’t touching 2024 right now because we aren’t aliens.
  • The Top 5 narrative isn’t needed right now, but thank you very much.
  • NIL madness all around the country. It’s awesome for all of these athletes, but is it going to be this wild forever?
  • Jack Coan as the starting quarterback.
  • Our feeling about Notre Dame’s biggest question mark - the offensive line.
  • Muffet McGraw’s statue.
  • Continuing the conversation on how to honor Brian Kelly when it’s all said and done.

And plenty more weaved in and out of the show.
