  1. My suspicion is that this is a case of "availability bias," the tendency we have to believe that the things that come readily to mind are more representative than is actually the case. In other words, it feels that way to me because I care about and follow ND. However, I suspect it also happens to other schools at a similar rate. For example, Edwards was a flip from KSU. Minchey was a flip from Pitt.
  2. I try not to hold others to a higher standard. I happen to love where I work. Still, if someone offered me more money, a better title, and an easier path to promotion (see link), I might be tempted to leave. Best of luck to the kid. ND will likely be fine without him. https://www.si.com/college/notredame/recruiting/running-back-dylan-edwards-decommits-from-notre-dame-football
  3. I came in to the game at 24-17, and I have had a very good time since. The schadenfreude is strong.
  4. Apparently, Minchey is going to the AA Bowl. https://mobile.twitter.com/TomLoy247/status/1592556917981057024
  5. It gets crowded on game weekends, but I'd recommend Rocco's for some pizza Friday late afternoon/evening. It's a local spot that has been around forever. I haven't been there in years, but I have found memories.
  6. Welcome! Irish Breakdown put together a football game day experience: https://www.si.com/college/notredame/football/ultimate-notre-dame-football-game-day-experience-2022 See if any of those events/attractions appeal to you. I don't think you can go wrong wandering around campus, the lakes, etc. The tour should provide a good overview, tbh.
  7. Absolutely. He had some unfortunate injuries that always seemed to derail his progress, but he leaves with a degree. I hope he finds a program and school that offer a great fit and he thrives (except for any games he might play against ND).
  8. This link seems to be free: https://247sports.com/college/notre-dame/LongFormArticle/Everything-Marcus-Freeman-said-Monday-before-Notre-Dame-vs-Navy-197088471/#197088471_1
  9. 38-10. People will want to start believing again, but they'll say, "It's just Stanford." Fair enough.
  10. This will likely turn out to be a good illustration of why I don't bet on games but I took: ND, PSU, Bama, Clemson, Utes.
  11. This is interesting to me, because I feel like the defense has mostly been very good this season. They've had long stretches of every game that have completely shut down the opponents. They certainly haven't been perfect. They should do a better job containing QBs to prevent scrambles, they have allowed some scoring drives in critical situations, and they had some (garbage time) breakdowns against UNC. I think we are close to seeing them develop into a great group. The d line has been deep and productive. The secondary has been surprisingly good (particularly Bracy and the freshmen). The area that could use an emerging playmaker the most is the LB group, in my opinion.
