Parkview will dominate ND. No way Stoma will make the throws in the dome to put ND ahead. McCleary's D wont be able to stop Parkview. Only hope is for ND to just eat more rice this week.... If EF can stop Austin Thibodeaux, then so can PB. ND got lucky on the pass to Benoit late in the 4th. Notre Dame has the easiest road to the dome out of all classes, and will now just be tested for the first time against PB. Last true football game for ND was against Teurlings and we all know what happened. If EF doesnt turn the ball over and ND doesnt get lucky with Stoma pass to Benoit... EF wins.
At this point, it really doesn't matter who you played in the regular season. It's all about who you played in the playoffs. ND has had a tougher road no question about it. Parkview fans, what year would you compare this Parkview team to? 2009? I'm trying to come up with a year most similar for ND and I'm thinking 2004 or 2005, possibly 2008. Not the best ever, but a very good team.
Notre Dame will humble Parkview. ND's defense is getting no respect and I can't understand why. Held EF to 180 yards total offense WITH Beckwith. Did Parkview give up 1,000 yards to EF, or was it 2,000? ND by 10
