College Football News produced a list of very early bowl predictions for the 2008 season recently, and they have the Irish matched up against Miami.
I must say that I am a bit surprised. CFN usually has “doom and gloom” type predictions for the Irish so it is very interesting to see them predict good things for Notre Dame this year.
A potential matchup with Miami would renew the short lived rivalry that brewed between the schools during the Lou Holtz/Jimmy Johnson Eras at both schools. There is still no love loss between the schools and a bowl matchup between the two would be wildly entertaining.
While the scenario is indeed intriguing, it’s probably a little too early to be thinking about bowl matchups coming off a 3-9 season, but hey, it’s only May, we still have three and a half long months until the season gets here so why not?
