Notre Dame football vs. Navy Midshipmen: 3 things we learned in Week 10
The future is certainly bright in South Bend
While this year’s Notre Dame football team may be left out of the College Football Playoff when all is said and done, the future is certainly bright in South Bend. In the win against Navy alone, we got to see the playmaking ability of quarterback Tyler Buchner, the running style of Logan Diggs, and the deep threat that Lorenzo Styles Jr is going to be.
The incredible part of this is that they are true freshmen, and have already shown that they can get the job done on the biggest stage.
When you add to the fact that Joe Alt has been great at left tackle, and Blake Fisher will return at some point, possibly this season, the Irish are set at tackle for a while. Rocco Spindler is going to be a monster in the interior, and that is only talking about the talent on the offensive side of the ball.
Prince Kollie got some playing time against Navy, and when you look at the talent that Marcus Freeman is pulling in via recruiting, that side of the ball is going to be elite for a long time. The Irish are very close to bridging the gap between the likes of Alabama and Ohio State, and they could be a year or two away from a legitimate national title shot.
