A veteran faculty soccer author data Notre Dame 12-012
When it comes to the world, the only magazines still selling today seem geared towards celebrity gossip or college football previews.
Phil Steele is one of the most famous college football writers because his annual magazine has more detail on each and every team nationally than any other college football magazine out there.
In this year’s preview magazine, Steele is incredibly optimistic about the Fighting Irish as he predicts a 12-0.
Steele ranks the Irish seventh in his pre-season standings and notes their massive losses in the squad, but also says their squad is no less talented than any other team they’ll play against in the regular season there he rates her schedule as the 23rd most difficult.
If Steele is right that Notre Dame’s squad is so good so quickly, then he could very well be right with the 12-0 and another trip to the College Football Playoffs as the schedule is very strong but also very manageable.
