    Notre Dame super grouped North Carolina to death

    Joshua, Jude, and Brendan crack open the pod of glory to talk about Notre Dame's win over the North Carolina Tar Heels. In this episode:

    HELLO!

    REVIEWS!

    Who's mic is what?

    Notre Dame beat UNC down.

    Drew Pyne rose to the occasion and proved himself as the Irish starting QB.

    Notre Dame's trio of running backs can do pretty much anything.

    Kevin Bauman's injury and the impact on the season.

    Physically abusing the Heels and the amazing nostalgia that came with it.

    Did Clarence Lewis lose his job to Benjamin Morrison?

    The J.D. Bertrand situation.

    We really lean on the snap count chart for a variety of reasons.

    Brandon Joseph's participation report.

    UNC was trash and we knew it.

    A spin around the country and pushing our need/want for a 2007 type of year (except for ND of course).

    Game picks!

    And much more weaved in and out of the show.

    Notre Dame VS UNC... stop trying to make fetch happen

    Notre Dame VS UNC... stop trying to make fetch happen

    Joshua, Jude, and Brendan head south for the evening in more ways than one to discuss Notre Dame's upcoming game against the North Carolina Tar Heels. In this episode:

    HELLO!

    Get the reviews in slackers.

    A shellfish complaint.

    Stop comparing Lou Holtz and Marcus Freeman boys.

    Welcome to UNC week.

    Brendan leaves a couple of acres of scorched earth about this 3-0 UNC team, and we're better off for it.

    Drake Maye is probably legit, but that isn't hard to believe because Duke Mayo is legit.

    Why does the media keep trying to make North Carolina a real thing?

    What should we expect from the Irish offense this week?

    Is the Notre Dame defensive line back to being formidable?

    Game picks for the week and the Clemson grossness.

    And plenty more weaved in and out of the show.

    It was the best of wins, it was the worst of wins for Notre Dame

    It was the best of wins, it was the worst of wins for Notre Dame

    Joshua, Jude, and Brendan shuffle into a pod situation after Notre Dame's 24-17 win over the California Golden Bears. In this episode:

    HELLO!

    Reviews.

    Joshua jumps right in with a lot of criticism about Drew Pyne - and Jude steps right in to defend his boy (this is what we do).

    Is this the best we can expect from Notre Dame's offense?

    How will Tommy Rees operate moving forward?

    The transfer portal mishaps.

    The improved Irish offensive line.

    Should Notre Dame stick with the two running back rotation rather than the three running back rotation?

    A high pressure day for Notre Dame's defense.

    How the referees inserted themselves into this game - and sprinted off the field for their troubles.

    How Oski mesmerized 2/3 of this podcast, and we have no excuses for it.

    The Irish crowd showed up and did well for itself.

    The final few minutes of stress, and Marcus Freeman's relief.

    Already talking smack about the North Carolina Tar Heels, because LFG!

    And plenty more weaved in and out of the show.

    What if Notre Dame's first two games were flipped?

    What if Notre Dame's first two games were flipped?

    While we strive for a thorough discussion of Notre Dame Football on the OFD Podcast, every once in a while I forget to inject a crazy thought here and there (I know - how is that even possible?). This is what the Off The Rails Show is built for.
    In this episode, I want to kick around a thought exercise that I kind of mentioned in this week's OFD Podcast. What if Notre Dame's football schedule this year would have had Marshall and Ohio State flipped around? Would wee think anything differently than we do right now? Would the results from the two games be different? Is there any glimmer of hope for the 2022 season?

    A pivotal moment for Notre Dame's 2022 football season

    A pivotal moment for Notre Dame's 2022 football season

    Joshua, Jude, and Brendan have some catching up to do with Notre Dame Football, and the podcast is always an absolutely delightful way to handle such matters. In this episode:

    HELLO!

    We were told that there is nothing you can do when the box is stacked.

    Looking back at the Marshall game.

    Was the Marshall game a sneaky trap game, and is that actually a positive moving forward?

    The offensive line was probably the biggest disappointment, but there was plenty of blame to go around at every position on offense.

    Really... a couple of good corners can shut Notre Dame down dead cold.

    Tommy Rees as an offensive coordinator is not the same as Tommy Rees the play designer.

    Maybe don't use 3 running backs.

    Harry Hiestand's handful of problems.

    Drew Pyne gets his shot, and Braden Lenzy is cool with that.

    The curse of Justin Tuck.

    Looking ahead to Cal.

    There may not be much offense as all this weekend.

    Justin Wilcox is still there, and that says something about the American spirit.

    How does Notre Dame get to 21 points?

    Game predictions.

    The weekly picks.

    Random trash talk.

    And plenty more weaved in and out of the show.

    We've been waiting on Notre Dame VS Marshall our whole life

    We've been waiting on Notre Dame VS Marshall our whole life

    Joshua, Jude, and Brendan make a solid attempt of creating a podcast parliament for Notre Dame VS Marshall. In this episode:

    Hello!

    The act of succession and moving on from the bloody crown.

    REVIEWS!

    Brendan does his preview thing, and breaks down the Marshall Thundering Herd.

    What problems are still real for Notre Dame.

    The Tommy Rees blame factor.

    Valid criticism for Harry Hiestand because what are we doing here?

    A bull fighting problem.

    Which offensive players will shine in Saturday's game?

    Which defensive players will shine in Saturday's game?

    Picking some of the other great games across the college football universe.

    Can Notre Dame cover the 20.5 spread?

    A sneaky way to watch Peacock for cheap.

    And plenty more weaved in and out of the show.

Great pod! Speaking of superstitions...I've always believed an Irish victory was (and is) directly related to how well I practice my Catholic faith in the week leading up to the game, which includes refraining from the use of colorful language. I was particularly remorseful for the impact of my behavior on Irish Nation in 2003, 2007, and 2016. However, after listening to you guys, I realize my efforts at self control were utterly useless. My conscience is clear. Marshall is on you! Go Irish!

Great pod, I am responding to your plea for more reviews. It’s been a while since I left a review but I’m just now recovering fully from eating the tainted Home Run Inn Pizza you have pushed for so long … luckily I am now fine

In all seriousness, keep up the good work. It’s been a rocky start to the season and solid Notre Dame fan talk is just what the doctor ordered

Go Irish!
