When Keith Jackson was announcin’ college football games on ABC when I was a kid it seemed like he did Notre Dame games all of the time. Well…that’s because the Fightin’ Irish were one of the very few teams that got national exposure at the time. He would start the broadcast with, “It’s a fine crisp autumn day here in South Bend, Indiana!”
Well playboy…if he were doin’ the game on Saturday he would have said, “It’s a cold wet and windy day here in South Bend, Indiana where the Fightin’ Irish of Notre Dame are takin’ on the Midshipmen of Navy! I’m Keith Jackson so settle in for a fine day of college football.”
Navy came through the joint with their ole school wishbone, runnin’ the rock like it was Barry Switzer’s Oklahoma Sooners, Tom Osborne’s Nebraska Cornhuskers or Fred Akers’ Texas Longhorns. They controlled the time of possession like I’ve never seen bruh and Notre Dame, strangely enough, had the composure to still win the game 24-17.
Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! Navy held on to the rock for darn near 43 minutes. This ball game went back and forth all night as Notre Dame had limited possessions to score points. So at some point you figured that the Irish would make a mistake defensively because of fatigue and that would be it for them.
However, they never wavered or seem to get tired. It was amazin’. The defense was on the field for 43 minutes and Notre Dame only committed 3 penalties all night. Navy only committed two. Hat’s off to both squads for a well played ball game under the weather conditions.
It was 40 degrees rainin’ and the freakin’ wind was blowin’ the entire game. The Irish were rockin’ their old school Knute Rockne uniforms in celebration of the man that made Notre Dame Football, Notre Dame Football.
Brandon Wimbush led the No.9 Irish (9-2) with 164 yards and two touchdowns. While Josh Adams led them in rushin’ with 106 yards on 18 carries. That was his seventh time toppin’ the century mark this season.
Even though Notre Dame has no shot of makin’ the playoffs they have an opportunity to win 10 ball games this season with a win at Stanford next week. That’s huge seein’ that they only won 4 games last season. Salute to Brian Kelly and staff for turnin’ the ship around and givin’ the Notre Dame faithful something to look forward to on Saturdays. Stop me when I start lyin’!
1) Dun: noun – the person in question, dude, guy, etc. It’s whoever I’m talkin’ about and its non-gender specific.
The G is excluded from the endings of all words because the G is near and dear to my heart because I’m from “The G” which is Gary, Indiana. So I only use the G when I’m talkin’ about “The G!”
