When a program wins 33 games over a three year span, it’s typically not based on young rosters. Juniors and seniors are usually the dominant players on those team just like they were for the Irish from 2017-2019.

Nelson. McGlinchey. Adams. Love. Gilman. Tillery. Williams. Claypool. Boykin. Kmet. Coney. Tranquill. Kareem. Okwara. Those players were the foundation of 33 wins. It was the right time for them to carry the load and they did that.

And because of those players being ready to lead the way, Notre Dame hasn’t had as much of a need for a freshman to make an impact immediately aside from Robert Hainsey at right tackle in 2017 and even he split that position with Tommy Kraemer that season.
