The Notre Dame Fighting Irish have a major similarity to the NFL team located about a 90 minute drive away. Everyone hates the quarterback, even though they covertly realize that the team would be much much worse without him.
The major storyline surrounding this game is the health of QB Tommy Rees. And whether he’ll go or not. Rees has taken so much heat from ND Nation; he’s been nicknamed “Turnover Tommy.” But where would the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, “Chicago’s ACC Team,” be without him?
An offense built around RB Cam McDaniel?
Have fun with that.
When Andrew Hendrix took over in the USC game, the Irish managed just 25 yards of total offense.
