Got Notre Dame the hell out of here for the year by humiliating the Irish 41-8 in Miami.
Notre Dame did hand the Canes four turnovers, turnovers Miami tidily turned into a blowout with timely offense. Take out those four turnovers, and we’re all looking at a much closer game between two teams that are really not that far apart in overall talent.
That is a charitable reading, one that’s almost as giving to Notre Dame as the Notre Dame offense was to the Miami defense.
On the other hand: Miami spent most of the second half in complete shutdown mode and ran the clock like it had to get to Club LIV by 11 for a recruiting meetup. This might actually be accurate. The Canes rented out the LIV at the stadium as a reception area for incoming recruits.
This sentence appears in Miami's media guidelines for today, and it is hilarious:
"CLUB LIV: No media member is permitted to enter Club Liv for any reason, before, during or after the game. This area is strictly for recruits only"— Tim Reynolds (@ByTimReynolds) November 11, 2017
