I generally don’t write much about Notre Dame at this point, because I’ve spent so many weekends there that I don’t have much to add to the site. This trip was a fortuitous one, to witness the Irish host the Longhorns in a rare matchup between two of the most historic programs in the sport. Despite the heavy billing of the contest, the Longhorns are in the midst down cycle in their program, and didn’t put up much of fight on this day. The Irish easily handled the sputtering Longhorn squad on this day, running away with a lopsided 38-3 blowout. I earnestly hope the Texas program bounce back to it’s historical dominance, and the game next year in Austin can live up to the hype of these two legendary programs.
Nevertheless, it’s always a treat to be back in South Bend for the weekend, touring the magnificent campus, and downing a few meatball subs from Polito’s. With a few marquee names coming to South Bend in the future like Georgia and Ohio State, I look forward to more of these powerhouse games in the House that Rock Built.
Special thanks to my friends Bryce and Geoff for meeting up, providing lodging, and an overall excellent weekend. Look forward to seeing you at the next big Irish game!
