The Notre Dame Fighting Irish are in a world of shit. They enter week 8 with a 3-3 record after a ridiculous loss to the Stanford Cardinal at home. Say goodbye to the New Years Six and any fun with the college football playoff rankings when they’re released in a few weeks. The only thing left isn’t pride — it’s what’s the most interesting thing left ion the table.
The newest round of bowl projections has Notre Dame eyeing a Gator Bowl berth with 4 of the 9 outlets that I use predicting a very Duval Holiday Week. Three of the four have the Irish playing the Gators, while one tries to make 2020 a thing and slots the Razorbacks.
The most interesting ones, in my opinion, come from ESPN. One has the Irish going to the Sun Bowl for a chance to get a bowl win back from the Beavers, and another sends the Irish to New York to play Minnesota.
We have the perfect uniforms for that turd sandwich.
