“It may be difficult to imagine Notre Dame heading into their final game of the season with anything resembling a positive or upset-minded attitude. After the season they’ve had, one could hardly blame them for just wanting to get it over with. Do not be surprised, however, if the Irish players come into this game wanting to salvage whatever they can from this year, and ending the rival Trojans’ winning streak may be just the thing.
The Irish are loaded with talent boasting a roster that does not even begin to reflect their current record. Many place the blame for this on poor coaching and bad defense. On defense the Irish have struggled when they play against an offense with a pulse and not in a hurricane. They are averaging 26.3 points allowed per game which is the 55th best in the nation (UCLA is 56th at 26.7). This is a defense that has given up 50 points against Texas, 38 points against Duke, 33 to Syracuse, and 34 to Virginia Tech.”
