Notre Dame begins what may be the country’s toughest schedule, with an opening week rivalry game on a different continent. Clearly, football was not the optimum concern. The Midshipmen have won three of five, after snapping a 43-game losing streak in 2006. It was the Irish, however, who cruised to victory last year, 56-14.
The player to watch will be Everett Golson, a redshirt freshman and Notre Dame’s new starting quarterback. Yes, to stem the turnover trouble, Brian Kelly turned to a player who has not taken a competitive snap. Golson unfortunately is not a criminal, though he is quite the musician. Besides the foreign environment, the neophyte will be throwing into a stiff Dublin wind and have a wide receiver, Theo Riddick, starting at tailback with Cierre Wood suspended.
P.S. Coaches who lead their players out of the tunnel look ridiculous.
