Notre Dame Fighting Irish at Southern Cal Trojans
LA Memorial Coliseum
Los Angeles, CA
November 26, 2022
One of the games I am worried about. I think they will give up 45 points a game and score probably 55 so they win. They still have holes in their roster but they have a experienced head coach. Yes they both have a lot of new staff but give me the experienced coach with new staff.
Damn, I was about to say we should still win this one this year given the talent advantage we have in the trenches, but who knows when it comes to Southern Cal receivers and our secondary/LBs. It may end up being a shoot out when all is said and done, unless the defense makes some serious strides this year.
They've had better at QB/WR and we've had worse at DB.Damn, I was about to say we should still win this one this year given the talent advantage we have in the trenches, but who knows when it comes to Southern Cal receivers and our secondary/LBs.

I actually like that SC is getting more hype. The more the better. ND has had it’s share and considering the OL/DL that’s returning they deserve some of it but TBF, Freeman has never been a HC before so I’m fine w/ SC, Utah, tOSU & the usual suspects getting more hype.
Please look who ESPN put #4
And please look at the picture they used
(also, this is not an ESPN link, so they will not get f'ing clicks)
Edit: I suppose the picture was chosen by fightingirishwire, but still.
Well they lost to 4 of the other teams on their schedule last year so I wouldn’t assume they only have to worry about those 3 teams. It’s not irregular for them to have a tough game against ASU, Cal, or Stanford. Winning is hard.If the preseason rankings are based on where they think USC will finish... #4 isn't completely ridiculous. Not sure how them and Michigan both secured the easiest conference schedules I've ever seen. USC just has to go 2-1 against UCLA, Utah, and ND to go 11-1. 10 wins is a near lock.
They brought in a ton of offensive linemen a cycle ago if I recall, but it was all three star talent or worse I think. I'm sure some of them will pan out, but you gotta figure it'll be some time before they get talent in the trenches. They'll have the skill players of course, but they're probably going to need to rely on quick passing attacks. I don't seem them getting physical and pushing us around. They will probably still dominate the PAC-12 for the most part.
