    This August, a group of people who spend way too much time watching and writing about Notre Dame football got together to put together some preseason rankings on the roster. In doing so, we (I’m definitely included) put in writing what so many of you (especially in the comments) already thought was true: We don’t know what we’re talking about sometimes.

  4. Five things we learned: Notre Dame 49, Navy 39

    It seemed too easy, didn’t it?

    Notre Dame’s offense was rolling. The Irish were on pace for 860 yards after the first quarter. Looking unbeatable, Everett Golson was throwing strikes, Tarean Folston was cutting through Navy’s defense and Brian VanGorder’s first attempt at slowing down the Midshipmen’s triple-option attack found enough stops to build a 28-7 lead.

    Michigan v Notre Dame

    During the postgame interviews, it was hard for players to hide the joy they were feeling. For a team that’s struggled to beat Michigan in the past, the 31-0 victory certainly earned the Irish every minute of the 24 hours they planned to celebrate.

    Senior linebacker Joe Schmidt might still carry with him the tag of walk-on.

    Even without the news that Jarrett Grace underwent more surgery to try and heal his broken right leg, Notre Dame’s plans at inside linebacker are far from clear.

    Notre Dame returns to practice next Wednesday, two weeks since it last took the field for practice. With the university on break this week, it’s been a nice calm before getting back to the business at hand of improving this football team before fall camp. And there is work to be done.

Head coach Brian Kelly has talked quite a bit about the type of teammate and leader the Irish need to replace in Te’o, but…
