Colin Cowherd trigger warning: we are about to talk about Colin Cowherd. The Herd, who Notre Dame fans hate as he mentions in this clip, had on FOX analyst Joel Klatt on earlier this week and both agreed that 1) Notre Dame is a serious contender and 2) this Notre Dame team is better than the 2012 squad that played for the national championship.
The most interesting thing I took from this video was that both Cowherd and Klatt said that if Notre Dame and Clemson were both undefeated at the end of the year, they both would put the Irish in the playoffs over Clemson.
Reminder, Herd has historically not been high on Notre Dame. In fact, he has never passed up an opportunity to say that Notre Dame was overrated. Klatt meanwhile has a bit of a history with not being kind to Notre Dame as well. Brady Quinn put Klatt on blast last year for a lazy, hot take on the Irish.
