The Notre Dame football team kicks off their 2022 schedule on the road against Ohio State, and if the team struggles this season, here are some scapegoats.
The 2022 Notre Dame football team will soon be heading to Ohio to take on the Ohio State Buckeyes in a must-see matchup in Week 1 of the college football season. However, before we get there, we have to get through Fall camp, and there is a lot of work to be done once the team gets on the field.
Here, we look at some possible scapegoats for the team if they fail to meet expectations this season.

The biggest question mark going into Fall camp is who will be the team’s starting quarterback in 2022. Two years ago, Ian Book was the starter, and then Jack Coan last year, so for the third straight season, it will be a new face calling the shots in the huddle.
Drew Pyne and Tyler Buchner are expected to battle it out for the spot this Fall, but the more time that goes by without naming a starter, the more behind the eight-ball the offense will be. If neither takes control early on, and this wages into late August, the play of the quarterback could be a real issue.
