Still an incredible season for the Irish though. Nothing to be ashamed of.
It's just a bad feeling in the pit of the stomach. If it had been a 35-21 game, and somewhat close throughout the night, it wouldn't be as bad. But to take an ass whipping like that just sucks.
The only positive thing out of it is that the Irish played them even in the 2nd half, and if you remove the 1st quarter, it's a very competitive game. For all intents and purposes, it was 21-0 after the 1st quarter (plus the first play in the 2nd quarter) Obviously, there are flaws with that thinking, but...if Notre Dame doesn't come out so tight, who knows.
