The Canes are 4-1 and riding a 3 game win streak. Now it's time to get re-acquainted with an old opponent, Notre Dame. Catholics vs. Convicts and all that bull****.

1. Where they are in the standings/rankings:

Our second ranked opponent of the year. Last time we played a ranked team away from home, it didn't turn out too well. The Irish are ranked in the top ten, and the last time we beat a team in the top ten was against Oklahoma in 2009.

2. What happened the last time Miami played Notre Dame?


From the Associated Press:
The Canes trailed 27-0 late in the first half and the player with the most catches from a Hurricanes quarterback was Irish safety Harrison Smith, who intercepted three passes. Robert Blanton also had an interception during Miami's turnover binge

Such an embarrassing game to watch. The only thing enjoyable about it was knowing that Randy was still fired.

3. Who to be scared of:


Manti Te'o

Manti Te'o wants to eat your children. The senior will **** up your **** in a hurry. The last time we played a team with a beast of a middle linebacker, it was Kansas St. and Arthur Brown. Arthur Brown was disruptive as all ****. Te'o is light-years better than Brown, so be prepared for him to be hurting people.

4. Player that will score against us:


Everett Golson

Nothing special about this guy. However, we've made every QB we've faced look like they belong in Canton so why would this week be any different? Expect him to put up career numbers against us. My guess is 20/25 for 275 yards and a couple of TD's. That's a conservative prediction by me.

5. Person that will **** you off:


Brian Kelly

Coach Scissor Lift is an ******* of the highest order. The guy murdered a student volunteer because he was too lazy to cancel practice. Just look at him:


He's one of those **** head coaches that blames his players for preventing him from displaying his ingenious coaching acumen for the world to see. He'll have at least one stroke on the sideline either *****ing about a call, or making one of his ****** players cry on national television.

6. Official Internet meme for this game:

Scumbag Steve


Just ******* win.

I've watched the Irish a few times this season and their front 7 is very aggressive. The Manti Te'o kid is more comparable to the BC kid last year that ate our lunch. Their back 4 is a pile of garbage and they know it, which is probably why their front 7 is so aggressive. We pass protect well and we will score. And since we all know the Irish are gonna throw about 40 points on the board against us, just enjoy the game and hope we give em ****.
Got to add EIfert's name in there somewhere. He is their main receiving weapon from the TE position. MSU and Mich. did a good job bracketing him and they were able to stall Notre Dame on O. Woods is a returning 1000 yrd rusher and I am sure he will break a few on us but they do so much to get Eifert the ball (split out wide, put in motion, put at FB, 2 TE sets) against mich everytime they lined up they were pointing out where Eifert was. They held him in check and kept ND scoring down. I know we dont like to defend the TE at miami but this would be a good game to try
Eifert will have 75 catches and 2000 receiving in this game alone the way our defense defends the TE position
It's gonna be just as cold as the sun bowl...

I saw your alarm and just looked it up. You're right. As of now the temperature is projected to be in the 40's at game time.
We are decided underdogs and deservedly so, but its a good matchup for us. The front 7 is impressive and Te'o is a monster but if we can give Morris time they seem vulnerable to the passing game. The key is going to be keeping them off balance with constraint plays, using the quick game and screens to slow down the rush. Conversely while I fully expect them to put up some points on us like everyone else the QB is not a great passer at this point and so they aren't equipped to take advantage of our tire fire of a secondary.
