The Anti-Preview: Notre Dame VS North Carolina

What a wild week this was. I won’t get into all the particulars, but I should either be dead, in jail, or dead in jail. But hey… that’s how the college football season rolls. Notre Dame survived on a day that was designed for death. Even though the Irish outplayed Stanford for the entire game, there was a moment where the Irish almost had their throats cut. Notre Dame survived, and now they move forward to take on…


I’m not going to beat around the bush here. North Carolina is a pretty bad football team. They are giving up 42 points a game, and have only beat Liberty and San Diego State. If you knew nothing else about them, that would be sufficient.

Seriously. That’s all I’m going to say on the subject. 42 points a game allowed.

apple cider and rumWHAT SHOULD YOU BE DRINKING?

It’s time to Zombie this shit up son!

Subway Domer Crack

One part Apple Cider or Apple Juice
One part Rum

Mix together in a large water bottle, apple cider jug, cup, keg- whatever. Mix and drink yo! The type of rum is almost inconsequential. Captain Morgan is always a solid choice, but Bacardi does make a Big Apple rum that works quite well too. It just doesn’t matter. You’ll be getting wasted with ease.

Now, lock yourself into a dark space and listen to the following music while drinking the SD Crack. Apple Zombies son!


This dish is one of the pure classics when it comes to the Subway Domer Anti-Preview cuisine. Sausage and Fried Apples. There are many, many ways to make this succulent plate of heaven, but I’m going to show you how I make it best.

  • 3 lbs. of Eckrich skinless Sausage
  • 5 Apples (any kind you like bozo)
  • Butter
  • 3 shots of Jack Daniels
  • 1/4 cup of Brown Sugar

Put some butter in a big pan. Lots of butter. Slice up your apples and put them in the pan. Now take a shot of Jack Daniels and put it down your throat. Take the other two shots and the brown sugar and put it in the pan. Fry it all up for about 5 minutes on high. Slice your sausage up in threes and put it in the pan for 5 minutes while stir-frying it all. Take the contents of that pan and put in a crock pot. Heat on low for 2 hours. Serve. Send all thank-yous to my email.


Well, get your “North Carolina Mountain” fashion on. (Sorry. Spacing out).

Our Tar Heels would let Washington Park Elementary score half a hundy on them. Mmmmm

  • Notre Dame is ranked #9 in rushing defense, giving up just 95 yards a game.
  • Notre Dame has not allowed a single point in the third quarter all season.


  • Will Fuller
  • Matt Hegarty
  • Max Redfield

When you’re playing against a bad defense, you need to do a couple of things; first you need to score a lot of points and second, you need to be able to do whatever you want to do. A guy like Will Fuller could and should have one of those stat padding games (in the neighborhood of 160+ yards and 2+ TD’s).

Matt Hegarty has to dominate inside and help set a tone moving forward in the season (I didn’t even mention Florida State).The offensive line shuffle has o look like a good move this week.

Max Redfield has a chance to make a big splash against a team that loves to throw the ball. Whether it be in pass coverage, on a blitz, or filling a run lane LIKE A BOSS, I really think Max is going to kick the shit out of someone. Hopefully, it’s legal.


Before the season started, just abut anyone that could recite the alphabet was labeling this as a “trap” game for the Irish. North Carolina’s desire to give up over 150 points in their last 3 games kind f killed that storyline. I think the Irish stay focused and come out swinging hard. IRISH 51, TAR HEELS 13
