Figured it would be good to read some opposition research.
Connelly thinks they could have their best defense since the Manti T'eo days and favors them in every game this season (including against us). Predicts a 10-2 record, and gives them a 62% chance of beating us.
Curious if anyone who follows them more closely than I do would care to comment? Based on what I know, this seems a little too bullish on the Irish. But then again, I don't follow them all that closely. But their defense sure didn't look great in the spring game.
