I don’t know about y’all, but I’m chill…I’m relaxed. That Pitt game, yes got dicey momentarily in the 4th, but still much calmer than Pitt games of yesteryear. Speaking of 4th…that’s where ND finds itself in this week’s College Football Playoff Selection Rankings. Now’s the time to put up a couple of BIG….and I mean B-I-G “statement” victories versus the softest part of its schedule. Vegas has the Irish by 27…do you trust Vegas or will that Catholic guilt keep you from predicting a murder? Time to pony up and see. A reminder of the rules:
- Fill out this form (do not post your predictions in the comments section of this blog post)
- Your score predictions and weekly prop are each good for one point, with bonus points for getting the score exactly right.
- The quote section is optional…but like how washing your hands after going to the bathroom is “optional.” Sure, you can skip it, but on the inside you know what you’ve done, and you are a terrible individual for having done so.
Last Game’s Best Quotes: Better game. Better predictions! Nice work everyone.
It will be a close hard fought game. Then the kick off will happen and ND will race out to a huge lead.
I see what you did there…..and I like it! Points!
I hate Pitt. Targeting is a stupid penalty in practice, not in theory. And give Josh Adams more touches in the red zone. That is all
I too hate Pitt. I too hate the targeting rule (as enforced). You called for (/summons Christopher Walken voice) Moooore Josh Adams? You go it. And, you get Points!
Redzone troubles continue but for Pitt, Irish solve their redzone troubles and the Irish faithful thank the football gods
The Irish were perfect in the red zone. You called it. You get Points!
We finally put together a full game and the final is relatively close due to a garbage time TD-onside kick-TD…wait, I’ve seen that somewhere before. Any way, pace well Friday night for the early game a la pre-NBC home games!
This was pretty much spot on. Seriously, ya’ll called for more Josh Adams, better red zone play, and crazy endings after dominance. Color me impressed. Points!
I protest the revenge taken on me for name-dropping my drunk game watching/tailgating with PhillyKelly. All that matters is I succeeded in getting just lit up enough to let the shit talking fly in the stands and make the Temple bandwagoners around me (and possibly my girlfriend) a little uncomfortable…
But alas, all my friends are in Pittsburgh at the game and I will be getting my drink on this week in sweatpants on the couch (what is with this early kickoff?!) Anyway, given how often Pitt has given us a close game (or a loss) in recent years, I just want to believe that the law of large numbers will take effect and we’ll finally walk away from this game with a solid victory. This purely emotional prediction failed me last week, so I’m going to double down–I just want to believe I can watch a game without a bottle of Tums!
Drinking in your sweats alone? I approve. Making emotional game predictions? I DOUBLE approve. You were pretty accurate with your prediction too. BUT…you think we’re in a democracy where the rule of law applies? THIS IS A DICTATORSHIP!!! Protest DENIED. No points.
Last Games’s Results:
A better showing in points the second time around versus the State of Pennsylvania. BrendanMcP continues to lead the way both weekly and overall.[table “” not found /]
I am HLS’s one true hope, though I may have to enlist Irish Elvis and his magical “T.R.O.L.L.” point system if I hope to catch up. Speaking of…the playoff committee really should admit that Pat Haden was replaced by Irish Elvis and that he’s been docking everyone “because reasons.”[table “” not found /]

5-4 Straight Up
