The Victory Formation:
It is the Emerald Isle Classic gives us Notre Dame and Navy, hooking up in Dublin Ireland. Is Notre Dame back? Have they finally returned to glory? Let’s see them regain dominance of Navy, first. Who turns red first? Bryan Kelly or the drunk Irish fans? That should have been a prop bet.
BEST OF MAXIM
There was a definite green theme to Notre Dame’s overnight flight to Dublin. The Irish players and most of the coaches and football staff wore bright green sweatsuits and hats. Ask for water and it came with a (green) lime and a miniature Ireland flag. The inside of the Delta plane was festooned with green theming.
– The Irish flight arrived a half-hour early but had to wait...
With just a few hours left before Navy and Notre Dame take to the field in Dublin it is time to look at three keys which will help the Midshipmen upset the Irish in their own (kind of) backyard.
Come on in and chat it up. Real live game chat y'all!
Notre Dame opened the season by cruising past Navy 50-10 as the offense racked up nearly 300 yards rushing and the defense handled Navy's option attack.
The Navy football team is in Ireland and will face Notre Dame on Saturday morning. Head coach Ken Niumatalolo and selected players addressed the media after the first practice session.
Traveling fans of the Fighting Irish and Midshipmen received a season-opening treat on the Emerald Isle.
Notre Dame’s first chance to make good on an oft-uttered off-season lament begins Saturday in the season-opening matchup vs. Navy.
