It is just over a year since Brian Kelly has been named the new head coach at Notre Dame and his winning reputation caught the attention of his team. After a frustrating season, he brings the Irish to the Sun Bowl with a 7-5 record.
Utah’s record might be intimidating for the struggling Irish, but Notre Dame’s chances of getting in a bowl aren’t shattered yet. If they can win two of the next three games, Notre Dame could make a bowl.
Brian Kelly’s announcement as Notre Dame’s head coach sparked a great deal of optimism among the Fighting Irish faithful. However, the season that has unfolded has been any thing but expected.
At 4-4 Notre Dame is still very capable of making a bowl game. However, if they turn out any more performances like they did against Navy, their bowl chances will start to dwindle.
After a devastating loss to Navy, Notre Dame is looking for some good news to inspire optimism into their fans. However, another injury to a key player might be the last thing the Irish needed.
(WSCR) – Notre Dame’s nose guard Ian Williams and inside linebacker Carlo Calabrese were injured during the second half of Saturday’s game against Navy. They were scheduled to receive MRIs Sunday to determine the extent of their injuries.
