Notre Dame gets its chance to earn respect this weekend

The disrespect for the Notre Dame football program is all around us and it won’t stop until the Irish program does something about it. It didn’t happen because people don’t like the Golden Dome or because they are jealous or because Notre Dame is elitist or for any other reason. These may be reasons to dislike Notre Dame, but the disrespect comes from the same place that respect for other programs comes from.

It was earned.

Notre Dame is a 17.5-point underdog to Ohio State because the program Brian Kelly, Charlie Weiss, Ty Willingham and Bob Davey created rarely if ever appear in these types of big moment games. The last time Kelly led his team on the road for a game against a Big Ten opponent, they were destroyed by a score of 45-14.
