Will Notre Dame Football Play? 5-20-20 Power Hour

May 20, 2020

WIth the announcement from Notre Dame that students will return to campus this fall, obviously the next question for Irish fans would be:  will there be a football season? 

Comments made recently by Father John Jenkins and Athletic Director, Jack Swarbrick, lead the ISD staff to believe there will be one.  It seems to be just a matter of how and when. 

In this episode of Power Hour, Matt Freeman, Jamie Uyeyama and Mike Frank discuss the many different options for the Notre Dame administration as they try to figure out if/when they will play a 2020 football season.  When should the team report back?  Do the teams reporting early have an advantage over the teams who report later?  What will the NCAA do about practice during the month of July?  What are the risks for Notre Dame?  How can they keep their players and staff healthy?  What will happen with Notre Dame’s schedule next season?  Which teams might fall off the schedule, and which teams might be added?  We discuss these topics and many more in this episode of Power Hour.
