Robert Smith of ESPN said yesterday he would not be surprised to see the Irish win 9 games this year, but predicted an 8-4 season with losses to Michigan, Michigan State, Pitt, and USC. I think his prediction is pretty fair. We’ll have trouble with the Michigans and Pitt and we’re probably not ready to seriously compete with USC just yet this year. Surprisingly, Smith doesn’t seem to think ND will have much trouble with Washington even though Huskie fans seem to think its a sure win for them – some on the UHND forums seem to think that the Irish will struggle with mighty Washington as well.
