Notre Dame Football kicks off in less than two weeks and another daunting schedule stacked with All-Americans and future NFL stars awaits. It seems like a good time for ND fans to take a breath away from projecting carries for George Atkinson III, sacks for Stephon Tuitt and the atom bomb press conference we witnessed Saturday August 17th. Here's a look at the best players the Irish will face this fall in the 2013 Notre Dame All Opponent Team.
This list is a combination of three things: MY impressions of rivals during past performances against the Irish, player statistics, and a perusing of Preseason All-Conference teams. Did you know Notre Dame faces a linebacker who totaled 2 September tackles and finished the season with 101 ... as a freshman? Maybe you weren't aware of a opposing team's linebacker whose tallied 44.5 career tackles for loss & forced 11 fumbles? That's just a sampling of the information gathered during this review. Here are the players you'll be hearing much more about in the weeks/months ahead. I only allow 11 players to make the 1st team so based off merit we'll be facing a 4-4-3. Today - Defense:no comments
