    21. Rebounding from Fiesta Bowl loss & Kyle's pre-Draft life in LA

    Inside the Garage is BACK. With Kyle training in the sunny Los Angeles hillside for the upcoming NFL Draft, the remaining garagemates quiz him on the California lifestyle and if dodging the seasonal depression that comes with South Bend's winter months has made him soft. Together they discuss Notre Dame's Fiesta Bowl loss to Oklahoma State, Marcus Freeman's task of instilling his own culture on the fly, Kyle's close call with State Farm Stadium security, the fan and media reaction to the players skipping out on bowl games, and KJ's rough performances on Arizona's golf courses.

    20. Outside the Garage takeover: ALL FAN QUESTIONS!

    The guys wrap up 2021 with an episode dedicated entirely to questions sent in from ITG fans on social media. They debate how dogs would wear pants, their chosen fighters in an animal brawl, their ideal vacation spot, Hulk vs Thanos in a fight, which superhero they relate to the most, the HBCU they would've attended, the one weapon to wield in a zombie apocalypse, what element they would represent in Avatar: The Last Airbender, how big of a family they'd want to raise, at what age they'd give their kid an iPad, their biggest pet peeves, the most ridiculous facts they know, and how their siblings and parents have influenced their lives. (recorded 12/7/21)
    Happy holidays!

    19. Early #FreemanEra impressions & Kyle exits the garage

    In Kyle's last in-person recording, the guys take a momentary break from their busy finals week to chat about the first practices under head coach Marcus Freeman, the viral video of Brian Kelly dancing, and Bryce Young winning the Heisman Trophy. With Kyle declaring for the NFL Draft, he breaks down his feelings surrounding Notre Dame, the public's reactions to both he and Kyren Williams opting out of the Fiesta Bowl, and addresses the idea of what players "owe" to their fans, schools, and teammates. And to wrap up... the question that's been lurking since the first episode of Inside the Garage is finally answered: are we alone in the universe?

    18. Breaking down Playoff selections & bowl matchups + Isaiah Foskey interview

    Notre Dame finished the year at #5 and are set to take on Oklahoma State – for the first time in school history – in the Playstation Fiesta Bowl. The ITG co-hosts give their thoughts on the bowl matchup, watching Saturday's games with their Playoff hopes out of their hands, which teams in the Top 10 they feel are overrated, and who they'll think will win each of the major bowls.
    After, an interview with Notre Dame defensive end Isaiah Foskey [recorded on 11/29]. They break down their first impressions of Isaiah, the Irish's rout of Stanford, what they thought of the campus, and adjusting to the different weather and time zones. Finally, they talk about people's biases against Notre Dame, Isaiah's "welcome to college" moment and workout with Aaron Donald, Lincoln Riley's future at USC, and how they've grown as people during their time in South Bend.

Enjoyed hearing this perspective from this thoughtful group of students and athletes. Don’t have to agree with all they say, or even be a ND fan to enjoy it. It’s refreshing to hear their voices and begin to understand while they represent a university on the field, first and foremost they are kids just learning life.
