    Irish Breakdown - ACC and Notre Dame Haters

    Irish Breakdown - ACC and Notre Dame Haters

    Notre Dame gets plenty of hate, but it seems like in recent seasons much of that disdain for the program has been misguided at best, and downright foolish at worst.

    Irish Breakdown football analyst Vince DeDario and publisher Bryan Driskell break down the move to the ACC, why it makes sense for both parties, and why so much of the outside anger directed at Notre Dame - from fans and "professionals" was incredibly foolish.

    Irish Breakdown - Notre Dame 2020 Linebacker Preview

    Irish Breakdown - Notre Dame 2020 Linebacker Preview

    The Notre Dame linebackers were a question mark, if not a downright concern, heading into the 2019 season. By the time the season was over the position group was a strength of yet another strong Irish defense.

    Heading into 2020 the unit is now expected to be a major force on the Irish defense thanks to the return of two talented starters, a great deal of young and exciting depth, and great coaching. The position group should also benefit the Irish special teams.

    Irish Breakdown football analyst Vince DeDario and publisher Bryan Driskell preview the unit heading into the 2020 season.

For me...

Great analysis but I wish Bryan would stop saying “For mee...” We know it’s your opinion, and that’s why we’re listening. He says it so often it’s like nails on a chalk board

Fool

Today Bryan Driskell said he was putting air quotes around the word "pandemic". What a fool. No excuse for using a football podcast to deny 150,000 American deaths. I'm deleting this show.

Down with VanGorder

No one covering Notre Dame has more in depth analysis than Driskell. While he may overuse the football jargon a little bit for anyone not as well versed in the game of football, him and Vince always bring something insightful to the table. The incessant trashing of Brian VanGorder is just a plus.
