Notre Dame will play Tennessee State, led by former college football and NFL star Eddie George, on September 2, 2023. On Thursday, how much Notre Dame was paying for the game was revealed. Per the Tennesseean...

Notre Dame football will pay Tennessee State a $1 million guarantee when the Tigers visit South Bend for the 2023 season opener for both teams.

The Sept. 2 nationally televised game was announced on April 5. The guarantee is the largest ever for TSU. Contract details were obtained through a freedom of information request by The Tennessean.
Former Notre Dame star QB Brady Quinn has recently shared his displeasure about the game...

“You can’t schedule this and go, ‘Well, it’s historic for this reason.’ I get all that. I don’t care about that,” Quinn said, via Fox Sports Radio. “This isn’t about equity and all that stuff or trying to say hey, we’re helping out an HBCU school. It’s not about that. It’s about trying to win a National Championship…

“This a no win scenario for Notre Dame, no matter what way you go about it. It does not help elevate their program. You’re not winning a recruit for this. You’re not winning in the eyes of the College Football Playoff Committee, or the AP, or whatever else want to talk about recruiting.”

LSU once scheduled one of the worst 1AA schools in Towson and in Les Miles fashion struggled to beat them by 16 points. Another reason to fire Les Miles.

Please, just don't say his name three times? We do not need that idiot back. Les Miles sucks!

Good for Eddie George in finding a way to legally get money into his program. IIRC that's a lot more than other IA schools have paid to smaller schools for slot filling games.

The problem with what Brady Quinn is saying is that not playing FCS’s just because Notre Dame thinks they’re better than that is dumb if all the other national title contenders are playing one…
