Apologies for running behind this week, y’all! Let’s get your Notre Dame predictions rolling so get your entries in before kickoff through the Google form.
As far as last week went…goodness, blood everywhere. Pretty much everyone had an upset and only one person hit the spread correctly! Now that the dust has settled, we have a new leader at the top of the standings. Before we get there though, here are my favorite quotes from the week:
Two weeks to prepare for triple option pays off and the defense shuts down navy’s offense. Our offense gets rolling by pounding the rock with Folston and opens up the pass. Golson with 3-4 TD passes today – Irishyoder1
Bonus point earned for calling both the impressive Folston and Golson performances.
We come out and we’re angry. – Smalls
Even though the score was closer than we all would have liked, this team did certainly play pissed. Point for you!
Maddening, frustrating first quarter, followed by a brilliant second and third. With 8 minutes left in the 4th, buckle your safety belts and return your seat backs and tray tables to their upright and locked positions…we’re heading to Zaire. – stogiesnbeer
I wish this is how the game went. The maddening quarter was the third, which canceled the flight to Zaire.
ND out-rushes Navy. Enough said. – NDSeattle
For most of the game, you were right. For that kind of crazy prediction…hell, I’m giving you the point.
Navy, classically will be out flanked through the air and on the ground. More fittingly, the Navy will be controlled by an Admiral (Junior) and an interception in the third quarter. When in the third and by whom you ask? Mid, Schmidt-man. – @IrishMoonJ
NONE OF THIS HAPPENED! I’m blaming the Schmidt injury on you for this jinx. I AWARD YOU NO POINTS AND MAY GOD HAVE MERCY ON YOUR SOUL!
Style points achievement unlocked. – @ManCaveQB
I don’t think this is what we unlocked…

Here’s how we’re calling the ND/Arizona State battle in the desert.[table “” not found /]
Yes, my cat, Gulliver, may be 1-7 in his straight up winner picks, but he is now 5-3 against the spread, which I’m almost sure is better than my ND spread picks, but I’m too lazy to go through all the previous week’s results to check. Let’s see what he did this week:
Like clockwork by this point. Go Irish!
Texan by birth, Irish by choice.
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.
