Notre Dame Quick Predictions

Your mascot is just a dude with a hat.
So Greg is fired. He still has two games left. This is one of them. What will happen is anybody’s guess, but being that Syracuse is a 19 point underdog (for entertainment purposes only) it is doubtful that Syracuse will pull of an upset. Far be it from me to say never when it comes to Syracuse though. I outlined five areas where Syracuse could possibly cause an upset in here for Rakes of Mallow, a great Notre Dame blog. Nunes/Magician also got in on the action. Will it happen though? Not likely.

Syracuse enters this game with only two wins in ten games. Notre Dame has it slightly better with six on the year. Notre Dame has outscored Syracuse 246 to 183. I have a feeling that Syracuse will again have a case of the missing second half. Navy gave Notre Dame a run for their money after scoring 14 points in 19 seconds in the second half and recovering two on side kicks. I doubt Syracuse can score like that as Navy did. The fact of the matter is that the passing game of Syracuse in the last two games has been the worst it has been in the last decade easily. So the fact is that Syracuse will have to ride on the coat tails of Curtis Brinkley to keep this game going. Hopefully if the run is working that the passing game will come naturally. However, I am very suspicious that Syracuse will get that early lead and then fall apart like every other game this season. Plus, this is senior day and Notre Dame should be blinging the green jerseys. Notre Dame has traditionally done very well on their last home game. Plus the need another win before finishing their schedule with USC. Therefore, Notre Dame will beat Syracuse 34 to 17.

The game is on NBC in stunning high definition at 2:30pm on Saturday. I’ll be watching from here in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, but the real question is will I be able to watch it all the way through? Probably, but I might need the aid of a nice cold beer. After all, Syracuse Football is best watched with a cold beer and a bitter heart.
