Notre Dame has high hopes for this year. Should they start out their season ranked? If so, where on the charts? Well, I’m here to tell you where they should be and why.
Should Notre Dame be ranked? Absolutely they should be. They played extremely well at the end of last year and are expecting to carry the momentum with them through this year. Are they the only one’s that think so? The answer is no. Multiple sports bloggers, analyst, and experts believe they have the potential to perform well this year. Oh, and being Notre Dame and having the historic reputation they have helps out as well.
Where should they be ranked? They should be ranked 17th. To me, someone ranked there (17-25) at the start of the season can either have the potential to have a breakout year or they played well last year but faded or are expected to fade away from the pack. I picked for 17th because they proved at the end of the year that they are capable of doing anything.
