Notre Dame defeats Temple in the opener


Yesterday in my blog I said the opener would favor the Irish.  Little did I know that Notre Dame would bust the game wide open.  A pair of TD passes from QB Brandon Wimbush, good defense and three 100 yard rushers pretty much helped the Irish.

There were obvious questions as to whether Wimbush could do well as a starter.  Head coach Brian Kelly said that Wimbush provided energy and excitement.

Even though it’s only the first game, there has to be more encouraging signs compared to last year.  If they can play like they did vs Temple yesterday, it’s a great sign that the guys want to turn the page no doubt.

The Irish host Georgia on Saturday.  Let’s take this season game by game to see what they can do.  I’ll preview that matchup on Wednesday
