Notre Dame was handled in their 33-20 loss to Louisville last night. The Fighting Irish now drop to 5-2 on the season.

Notre Dame came into this season with promise. They were supposed to be poised to prove that they are top team. A team that is capable of being among the elite, like Georgia, Alabama, Ohio State and Michigan.

That doesn’t seem to be the case once again. A tough loss at home to Ohio State, barely beating Duke last week, and now getting smacked around by Louisville last night.

All of this is unacceptable. The Fighting Irish are supposed to be back. They are supposed to better than this. Head Coach Marcus Freeman is going to feel the heat.

With yesterday’s loss, Marcus Freeman is now 14-7 as Notre Dame’s Head Coach. Failing to be able to defeat top 25 teams is a problem.

The Fighting Irish offense has scored just 55 points in its last three games. Those games were all against top 25 teams.

Freeman was able to land Wake Forest QB Sam Hartman in the transfer portal to direct his team. Hartman has not delivered the last three weeks either.

Last night, Notre Dame got outcoached, out-schemed, out-efforted, out-executed, out-adjusted, and ended up getting taken behind the woodshed by Louisville.

This is a problem and it needs to fixed. The seat is warm for Freeman. He needs to turn it around before it gets hotter. It won’t be easy, as USC’s high powered offense rolls into South Bend next week.
