    The brutal nature of a Notre Dame football loss

    The brutal nature of a Notre Dame football loss

    After many months, we kickstart the OFD Bookcast to finally finish "Notre Dame's Greatest Coaches" by Stephen Singular and Moose Krause. Seeing as how there has been a giant stretch of time between the last Bookcast episode and this one, a couple of things to keep in mind:

    Maybe go back and listen to the 6 previous installments if this is new to you.

    My dog (Bo Bowower) made things a little difficult at times.

    It's been almost as lo since I did a solo recording, and there are a few pauses to get my ducks in a row.

    So now that we have that out of the way, here's some of the things discussed from Chapters 15 and 16:

    Moose was comically giddy to see practice after a loss.

    Joe Moore was talked about quite a bit - but not nearly enough.

    A brief clapback at Joseph Campbell's "The Power of Myth" and Singular's usage of it in this book.

    The end of Ara.

    The physical toll of coaching the Notre Dame Fighting Irish.

    How Ara just forced Johnny Ray to coach in South Bend.

    A Frank Leahy impression just for Brendan's sweet ears.

    Ara's obsession with detail.

    Messing with Digger Phelps.

    Dave Casper just wanted Ara to leave him alone.

    And plenty more weaved in and out of the show... and Bo trying to bust out of the office.

    Notre Dame went out and got the best defensive coordinator on the market in Marcus Freeman. Seriously.

    The coming staff shake-up for Notre Dame.

    Defensive roles and what they may look like in 2021 - maybe.

    We talk about Notre Dame losing to Alabama in the Rose Bowl like gentlemen

    Joshua, Jude, and Brendan quickly compose themselves to talk about the 31-14 loss to the Alabama Crimson Tide in the College Football Playoff Rose Bowl. In this episode:

    Joshua messes up the score and we talk about it.

    We are live-watching the Ohio State - Clemson game and talk smack that we now regret just minutes later.

    Notre Dame's conservative offense.

    Brian Kelly's spicy post-game presser causes an eruption on the podcast that covers; recruiting, narratives, and math - and math always sucks.

    Notre Dame's wide receiver issues over the years (2017 is key in this conversation).

    Taking risks.

    Talking about transfer quarterbacks because this is where we are.

    We don't feel like buckets of death after this game.

    Some New Year's thank-you's.

    And plenty more weaved in and out of the show (like a whole lot more but I forgot to take notes).

    Wilford Brimley.

    Tommy Rees as a play caller.

    Brady Quinn VS Ian Book.

    Picking all the games with spite and emotion.

    A shout out to the Clemson Tigers.

    The blame game went the wrong way in College Station.

    Regifting Notre Dame's glorious Hawaii Bowl victory for a very Merry Christmas

    Regifting Notre Dame's glorious Hawaii Bowl victory for a very Merry Christmas

    Merry Christmas! Joshua, Jude, and Brendan are taking a little bit of a breather this week, but we decided to RE-GIFT a fantastic episode for all of you to enjoy.
    Christmas Eve marks the 11th anniversary of Notre Dame's 49-21 win over the Hawaii Warriors in the Hawaii Bowl. Not only was it a tremendously fun game to watch, it also finally ended Notre Dame's bowl losing streak that stretched back to their last win in January of 1994.
    We sat down to watch a one hour cut-up of the game and this is the podcast... us commenting all the way through. In fact, there are two versions of this podcast. This one has the game sound with it to follow along, and the other version has no game sound - which can be found by searching the OFD Podcast. The one with no game sound is available so that you can watch a video of the same version of the game while listening to us riff all over it. That YouTube link IS RIGHT HERE.
    We hope you enjoy whatever version you choose (why no both?) and from everyone over at One Foot Down, have a bright and loving holiday season.

Five Stars

Great info, solid banter, takes for days, historical context...can’t ask for much more in a ND based podcast.

Plus, you have the opportunity to listen to what can only be described as a heart attack, mixed with a life-long smoker, mixed with a bottle of cheap bourbon; in Josh’s voice. Majestic...

Five Star Show

I probably listen to every ND podcast out there. There is a little something different in every show. With this show, the something different isn't little. It's a beer and chicken wings show. It's a poker night show. Sometimes, it's exactly what I need when I want to talk/listen/breathe ND football. It's not pretentious Coach Speak. It's not overly analytical. It's just great ND talk. Their ND talk is 5 stars, but their pizza knowledge doesn't even make the two-deep.

Just another 5☘️ Review

Wutup yall?

Ok let’s start with something that a lot of listeners don’t understand. And that is ...just because you don’t agree with EVERYTHING that is said on a podcast doesn’t mean it is not a 5⭐️ podcast. Can we come to terms with that fact? Do you think I agree with everything that Jude Josh and Brenden say? No! But that has nothing to do with if the podcast is good or not. And this one is one I listen to religiously. If this podcast isn’t in your arsenal then I think you’re not as informed as you could be. Keep up the great work fellas! Oh and one more thing...F-USC! Irish all day every day!!!
