“Independent? That isn’t even a conference!” Yes we know, that but there are some teams that are now Independent that are worthy of previewing. There are the Army Black Knights, and don’t forget about the Brigham Young Cougars.
Okay, forget about both of those. This is completely about Notre Dame.
Notre Dame Fighting Irish
|9-3||The good news for Notre Dame is that head coach Brian Kelly has done a great job of assembling talent and the Irish have as much as anyone. The bad news is that they have an absolutely brutal schedule with Texas, Georgia Tech, @Clemson, USC, Boston College, and @Stanford.
So the Domers are going to drop a few games. But never fear because NO ONE acts like they won after they actually lose quite like Notre Dame fans.
|Brigham Young Cougars||7-5||Now an Independent, BYU is trying to schedule some big time programs to gain some national recognition. And if that doesn’t work they could always get into a huge postgame brawl like they did last year versus Memphis. Got recognized for that one, didn’t you Cougs?|
|Army Black Knights||4-8||Army is taking small positive steps under head coach Jeff Monken and the only title they truly care about is the Commander-in-Chief’s trophy. But it is hard to win that trophy when you have lost to Navy for 13 years in a row.
Oh…was I not supposed to bring that up? My bad.
