    There are many haters out there, but it is very difficult to deny that Notre Dame is one of the most storied programs in college football history. With 11 claimed National Titles and 7 Heisman winners, the history of Irish football is strong. Now it is time to look to the future.
    Brian Kelly accomplished a lot in his 6 years at ND, but now it is time for Coach HipHopp to take the team back to elite status. His past success has been built on athletic QBs and tough, high speed defense. The formula worked well with multiple SEC and National championships at Texas A&M during the last Chompions Dynasty. Fighting Irish fans are looking forward to what he can do in South Bend.

    The talent level is high on this years squad. 2014 leading rusher Tarean Folston returns as the featured running back. Everett Golson transferred to Florida State after an "interesting" career at Notre Dame, but Junior QB Malik Zaire takes the reins and looks to prove himself as the full time starter. Will Fuller leads a deep wide receiver corps and hopes to lead the team in receptions again this season. The returning offensive players are no strangers to the spread, as they ran it under Brian Kelly, but Coach HipHopp's up-tempo but run heavy spread will be something to adjust to.
    The defense has talent returning on all three levels, and they are looking forward to implementing Coach HipHopp's system.

    He's only suspended the first four games, isn't he? You should just throw him at the bottom of the depth chart.

    News from South Bend, Indiana

    RS Sophomore running back Greg Bryant has been suspended for the first four games of the 2015 season. Therefore he will NOT be playing in the first four games of the Chompions Notre Dame season either. This forces the True Freshmen running back duo of Dexter Williams and Josh Adams into service right off the bat.

    As further punishment, Bryant will also be forced to wear the Cone of Shame all season.

    Week 2 - Notre Dame at Michigan

    Nothing like a rivalry game in The Big House to start the season! Both teams came into the game fired up, but the defenses set the tone early. Michigan did their best to slow down the Irish rushing attack, forcing QB Malik Zaire to go to the air with little success. The Notre Dame defense countered keeping the score knotted at 7-7 until late in the second quarter. That's when one of ND's defensive stars took matters into his own hands. Star Defensive Tackle Sheldon Day picked off a tipped Jake Rudock pass and took it the distance to break the tie. Notre Dame led 14-7 at halftime.
    The Irish running game caught fire in the second half stretching the lead and Linebacker Jaylon Smith sparked the defense with 2 BIG sacks and lead the team with 8 tackles.
    Malik Zaire did his best to keep Michigan in the game though, throwing 3 interceptions and losing a fumble. But The Irish maintained a lead of 28-7 until late in the fourth quarter. Rudock connected on a deep pass with broken coverage to keep it respectable but it was too little, too late. Irish win 28-14. The passing game will need to increase efficiency as the schedule only gets tougher in the new Big Ten. Coach HipHopp has confidence that the kinks will be worked out as the players adapt to his spread system over the next few weeks.

    Up next is a matchup with #12 UCLA for the Notre Dame's first home game of the season.​
