Welcome back to week two of predictions. In case you missed last week, we are replacing the open thread with a little prediction game. As it appears just about everyone is heading out to the game, ticket or not, I’m getting this up a bit earlier.
Want to pick against the HLS staff in this battle of clairvoyance? Enter here.
Here are the standings from last week. Remember, 1 point for each: straight up winner, spread, over/under. 2 points if you pull a #Texadamus like I did and nail the sucker dead-on.

Here are some of my favorite loyal reader submitted game descriptions:
Fuck Rice and their stupid band. The RERISE OF GOLSON is nigh and the Jaylon Smith Murder Train needs more blood for fuel. – NDEddieMac
BOLD, sir. That take is strong to quite strong.
Quick start. Wardrobe malfunctions (thanks a lot new apparel provider) lead to a few miscues and much to everyone’s delight a BK nip slip.
While BK’s fixing the wardrobe, he downshifts the offense accidentally keeping the second half pretty boring. – IrishMoonJ
BK nip watch was certainly in full effect. Thankfully, no nip-slips and/or other errors.
Irish win. Period. – Irishyoder1
I mean, it’s not wrong.
In true ND fashion, ND will look bad early and play from behind. They will then settle down and look really good and take the lead. They will then try to give the game away with late game turnovers but hang on to win. – Goldmyer81
Goodness, “Hold me I’m Irish” in full bloom here. Thankfully this didn’t happen.
Remember to put in the optional description fun. Perhaps one day I’ll assign bonus points to this because HLS is like “Who’s Line is it Anyway” where the points don’t matter!
|NDtex||Notre Dame||34-20||Golson is able to handle the blitzes thrown at him from an over-aggressive Skunkbear defense and gives Michigan fans a taste of what Denard and Gardner have done to us.
The score will end up closer because of a late Michigan TD, but this will be the most convincing Irish beating of Michigan since 2008.
|Irish Elvis||Notre Dame||34-24||Need this win. For my sanity, for bragging rights in the foreseeable future, for all-time win percentage, to make Swarbrick look even sexier with that OSU announcement, and to make next week memorable vs. Purdzzzzzzzzzzz|
|HLS_whisky||Notre Dame||33-27||Golson for Heisman|
|Bayou Irish||Notre Dame||42-23|
|SupermanTDJesus||Notre Dame||40-24||Michigan sucks SO HARD. Unfortunately, they do have a football team that will manage to produce some points on Notre Dame this Saturday. I'm looking for a field goal fiesta early from Notre Dame, making fans nervous. 17-10 Michigan lead into the half. The 2nd half though? EXPLOSIOOOOON. Golson goes Super Saiyan on a mofo and tosses 3 scores while Kyle Brindza will nail 4 total FGs, 2 from 50+. Michigan gets the requisite "oops we missed that one" TD before the game ends. Hopefully ND's band plays a hearty rendition of NSYNC's Bye Bye Bye on their way out the door.|
Sure, it’s gonna be close. Sure, it’s gonna be madness. Sure, it’s a 1-point call. But I am CONFIDENT WE WILL WIN by that one point because, well, because we HAVE TO WIN! 3 LEPRECHAUNS DANCING ON THEIR SKUNKBEAR GRAVES!!!!!!!
|Phillykelly||Notre Dame||35-17||Is Devin Gardner like an 8th year senior?|
Well, my cat, Gulliver, sure flopped on his animal picking debut. Isn’t he aware that animals are supposed to predict the future? He’s currently 0-1 unless last time he meant that we were going to devour Rice. What does this week hold?
THAT’S A GOOD KITTY!
(Unless you only pick losers in which case, BAD KITTY, BAD!)
