Notre Dame Football vs. Wisconsin: 3 things we learned in Week 4
Drew Pyne will be an FBS starter next season
During the last two games, the Irish have turned to true freshman Tyler Buchner when Jack Coan and the offense sputtered, and Buchner has had some fine moments. However, on Saturday, when Coan was injured against the Badgers, Brian Kelly turned to Drew Pyne, due to the fact Buchner could not play due to his hamstring injury.
While Coan would not return, it would not matter, as Pyne looked sharp, completing a bunch of tight passes, and showing he could certainly run this offense if needed. The truth is, Pyne nearly won the starting job this summer, and he showed on Saturday that whether it is in South Bend, or somewhere else, he is going to be a starting quarterback somewhere in 2022.
The Notre Dame football team will play their Shamrock Series game this weekend, and here is a history of the uniforms, some good, some really bad.
Pyne was a very highly-touted recruit coming out of high school and has an electric arm and a tremendously high football IQ. Many teams in the country would clamor for his services, and if Coan is out against Cincinnati next Saturday, we saw against Wisconsin that the Irish are in good hands.
