Will he get some fight out of these players on that trip? I believe he will. He has faced ND a couple times at UGA. He will understand their schemes etc. I may actually go to that game now just to see how the team responds to the atmosphere and adversity they are sure to face. He also gets to coach a former ND Offensive Lineman in his return to South Bend. This game could be fun for a quarter or two.
I’m definitely going with my daughter, son-in-law, and girl friend. I grew up less than 30 miles from Notre Dame. I haven’t been back since a class reunion in 2000, and my daughter’s never been to my old home. I’m glad we scheduled this game and gave me an excuse to show my daughter my old stomping grounds. Planning on a 4 day week-end. It’s going to be great, no matter the score of the game. Like you, though, I’m hoping it won’t be a 50 point loss.
