    It's Monday you know what that means... Pre game thread!

    This should hopefully be a recap game for us. However in the past Boston College has given us a trouble.

    Will the game be close?

    Boston College just lost to a middling Wake Forest team. I'd like to think it's because they suck but I'd be willing to bet it's because they were looking past WF to game plan for us.

    We're still their super bowl.

    Their defense scares me and can be every bit as good as Georgias. I don't respect their offense and if our D plays as good as they did Sat. We'll hold them in check and "out-athlete" them on offense.

    By the way Georgia is acting like beating us was the Super Bowl. They're selling t shirts celebrating the win.

    Honestly, like they beat us by ONE POINT. They are too busy jacking off to the thought of having lots of fans in South Bend.

    Guys I know the Georgia game is in the past now... but I posted one thing on twitter about Notre Dame - Georgia and used the hashtag #GeorgiavsND and I got around 30 HATE responses... unbelievable Georgia fans are idiots when it comes to social media.

    They truly acted like they won the National Championship when they only beat us by one. It's ridiculous.

    Will I watch the Boston College game? Unfortunately, I never miss Irish games.

    Am I excited for it? Absolutely not.

    And that's the extent of my pregame analysis.

    Well I agree it isn't exactly last years team and I do think they bounce back but that doesn't mean they'll beat anyone of note this year. The one solace from losing to Georgia is that last year they would have gotten beaten badly by a ranked team of course who knows how good Georgia really is.

    Kelly's tenure at ND is littered with "close losses" to good teams. Fla. St., Clemson, etc.

    He doesn't have many signature wins over top teams. Winning at Oklahoma in 2012 was a high water mark for him and let's face it that was not the best OU team of Stoops' tenure. They were ranked 8th at the time and finished way down in the rankings. What made that a good win was OU's impressive home field advantage (it was only their 4th home loss in that decade).

    Kelly is a mediocre to bad coach. He MOSTLY beats the teams he's supposed to beat, but always manages to cough up a hair ball to an inferior program, rarely blows out such teams, and almost never pulls off the upset. And on the biggest stage against elite programs, he embarrasses ND (Alabama, OSU). Worst of all, there is no consistency from week to week or year to year. The team yo-yo's.

    I used to give the guy the benefit of the doubt saying he had a difficult task pulling the team out from the Bob Weisingham era, but he's raised the SS Notre Dame from abject suckery to permanent mediocrity and that's the best he can do. It's time for a change if we ever want to get better.

    I can still remember when BC was a minor annoyance. Now I have to legitimately worry if this bad BC team can win.
    Also do yourself a favor watch the game on mute. Flutie is going to be insufferable and as good as Tirico is, he's gonna be stroking Doug off the whole game.
