The Notre Dame Fighting Irish are set to take on the Toledo Rockets in ND’s home opener of the college football season. Last week (which wasn’t even an entire week) was just a wee bit stressful. You know... losing an 18 point lead in the 4th quarter, going to OT, watching the opponent make a 50 yard FG — only to ice themselves with a timeout before it really happened and then miss a field goal... and then (finally) watching Jonathan Doerer drain a walk-off 41 yarder.
Like I said... just a wee bit stressful.
So, we have a lot to watch today. After the FSU win, there was a long list of things that the Irish needed to clean up for the season, and playing a program like Toledo provides the perfect opportunity to grow. The Rockets are a good MAC football school, which means this isn’t a walk down the Bowling Green.
Let’s put the parts together and see what happens.
