Good morning, Irish fans! It’s that time of the week once again for us to try to gaze into the future and predict Notre Dame and Purdue.
To enter this week, head on over to the entry form.
But first, let’s see how you did last week. Let’s start with the quotes because I’m giving out some bonus points this week:
Is Devin Gardner like an 8th year senior? – Philly Kelly
I wanted to frame the quote as soon as I saw it last week. Point!
When I think of Michigan, I think of Morrie in “Goodfellas” when he says “Fuck ’em in the ear.” I believe ND will do some ear-banging this weekend. Not much to say. We have a better team, more weapons, and baring turn-overs and old fashion ass cramming by the Big 10 officials, I think they should win this handily. As Lou would say, “It doesn’t have to be close…..” – The Nature Boy
My God, I love this. All of this. ND indeed ear-banged Michigan, and you even called some B1G referring tom-foolery. Point, Natch! WOOOOOOO!
Michigan gets off to a fast start, Golson leads ND back only to lose in some strange horrific fashion that mirrors 4 of last 5 years. Bad Mojo. Hope I’m wrong. – IrishFaninMD
As the lone person to pick Michigan, you were indeed wrong, but I’m sure you don’t care.
1816: Arguably the last year Michigan was a respectable university (Wikipedia that for greater context). Also, in a closest to the pin competition, that would be the number closest to the margin of victory for the Irish. Irish win. Big. – @IrishMoonJ
Fuck Michigan – NDEddieMac
Well, I mean, obviously.
Utter domination, beginning to end. Break them. – stogiesnbeer
Request heard. Request granted.
No chicken dance tonight – Indiana Kid
More impressive was your perfect 31-0 prediction. Hold on…
/sees you did this on Monday
Well, that isn’t how this works. But hey, I appreciate the effort. For this reason I will add -6 bonus points to your score of 6 for a grand total of 0!

Apologize in advance for the poorer quality of video this week. My wife, the usual camera operator, is out of town this weekend, so I had to roll solo.
Will Gulliver improve on his 1-1, record?
Maybe he’s picking against the spread and I just don’t know it yet. I don’t understand you, Gulliver, but at least you hate Michigan.

Born and raised in the great state of Texas, Tex is a first-generation Domer and a former student manager. After graduation, he left the cold winters of South Bend behind and returned back to his home state with a computer engineering degree in tow. Missing the daily grind of working football practices and talking football with fellow Irish fans every day, he took to blogging, a path which eventually led him to Her Loyal Sons. Continuously diving into stats and game film, Tex strives to break down every aspect of Fighting Irish football--even though it's determined to kill him.
