The Notre Dame chronicles part 3

Granted, it was Navy- a team Notre Dame once beat 43 times in a row (We have split the last 6 with them). Yet, there is just something so wonderful about starting the season on a good note.

Easily Notre Dame's weakest opponent (the only one not invited to a bowl last year), the middies did not put up much of a fight and the Irish won the Emerald Isle Classic 50-10.

OK. So you got a big win in Ireland and now you can retire the Green, Orange and White socks and cleats and get into the meat of the season.

Purdue is no gimmee. The QB tandem of Terbush and Marve will attack the young and thin Notre Dame secondary. However, Notre Dame should have enough horses to beat the Boilermakers. If they can manage to do so, the week 3 prime time match-up with Michigan State could be an ESPN Gameday kind of game.

Notre Dame's new Quarterback, Everett Golson will probably have to take to the air a lot more in the Purdue game. We will know a lot more about what kind of team this is. 21 players saw first time action against Navy and Manti Teo and Stephon Tuitt had career games.

It's early but I like what I see so far.
