It definitely wasn't the ending we wanted, but it sure was one heck of a game. One for the ages. Notre Dame and Floirda State went head-to-head and seemed evenly matched throughout most of the game. How did our defense match up? Lets take a look! The game on Saturday marked the first time that both teams scored at least 27 points in the history of the Notre Dame-Florida State series, with our defense giving up a total of 31 points.

That game shouldn't be defined by that one penalty nor do I want it to be. However, I'm mad as hell and can't get that moment out of my head so it's time to vent. Today, Brian Kelly mirrored my feelings perfectly as to why I'm so full of piss and vinegar right now: https://twitter.com/eTruth_Irish/status/523898772971991040 I stand behind … [Read more...]
