The Anti-Preview: Notre Dame At Purdue

The Anti-Preview is still a little sore. Life got a little rougher last week after Notre Dame's 41-30 loss to Michigan. The Irish went up to Ann Arbor and looked completely outplayed, outcoached, and outclassed (ouch that last one really hurts to say). At any rate, the season doesn't end in week two and there are still a lot of things that this team can accomplish. What...
