What up Loyal Sons and Daughters, welcome back to another edition of HLS Videos with ya boi SupermanTDJesus! Sweet Lord, I feel like a whole season has passed since last we got to chat. How you been? Hear about Les Miles? Crazy crazy stuff man! Oh, someone said to make sure I mentioned that BRIAN VAN GORDER GOT FIYAAAAAAD! Not a second too soon, but perhaps a game or two too late. Its indisputable that he made the Irish defense about as terrible as I can ever remember them being in my lifetime. While I wish him all the best as a person, i’m relieved because now the Defense at least stands a chance to improve.
What better test for this “new” defense than the Syracuse Orange and their high-octane offense under first-year head coach Dino Babers, eh? The Orange came into this game touting a top-flight offense, complimented by a somehow worse Defense than the one Notre Dame was set to trot out on Saturday. After a quick perusal of the box score OH MAN did it show. Props to this Irish coaching staff for making what few adjustments they were able to make in a week’s time, because they managed to walk away with a 50-33 victory over the Orange on a “neutral” field in the Meadowlands. Here’s hoping they can use this game as a spring board to some more improvements on D and perhaps a winning schedule! Man, that is such a depressing wish.
Anyway, enough about all that. Ryan (@NDTex) and I will go into that ad nauseam on this week’s recap podcast. What we’re here for now is some fresh-out-the-pack HIGHLIGHTS YO! GET YOU SOME!
