Notre Dame Football Schedule
What can instill a sense of pride, anticipation, and possibly anguish into the hearts and souls of the Fighting Irish alumni? The Notre Dame football schedule, for one. Notre Dame is known for its football roots that run deep into the university soil. Every year, the schedule comes out and fans finally get a glimpse of the times and places they will fight their adversaries throughout the season. Who will the Fighting Irish have to battle on the road? Who will have to come into South Bend, IN and prove their worth? Will this be another legendary season, or will the “fight” in Fighting Irish fizzle out?
Notre Dame Football Schedule: A Useful Tool
Even before the massive linemen, defensive ends, and running backs dawn the school colors of blue and gold for the season’s first game, the football schedule can provide a glimpse into the future of Notre Dame for the coming season. A moderately good football analyst can examine the schedule to pinpoint key games and must-wins before a snap is ever taken. Some opponents are extremely tough to overcome in their own home stadium. Other opponents play just as well on the road. By looking at the upcoming schedule, and examining the teams that will be played at home and on the road, as well as taking into consideration the game’s placement in the season, one can draw some reasonably accurate conclusions before the season gets underway.
