Publish date:

In the latest segment on WSBT Sportsbeat we talked about a number of Notre Dame football topics. New Fighting Irish defensive coordinator Marcus Freeman was a topic of discussion, as was the possibility of Houston Griffith returning to South Bend. Those are just two of the many topics discussed with Darin Pritchett and Sean Stires.

0:47 - We kick things off talking about the national championship game. Specifically, what Ohio State did game plan wise on offense, and what the Buckeyes might have done that we saw from Notre Dame.

2:42 - The narrative surrounding Notre Dame is about its inability to show up in the big games. We discuss what that narrative is, and if the Alabama beat down over Ohio State changes that narrative at all.

4:15 - Up next we discuss new Notre Dame defensive coordinator Marcus Freeman, and the similarities and differences between his defense and what we saw from the Fighting Irish defense the last four seasons.

6:04 - We talk about how important it was for head coach Brian Kelly to land Freeman, and more importantly, what the process of going after Freeman says about Notre Dame.

7:45 - Terry Joseph leaving Notre Dame for Texas is the next topic of conversation, and how his departure could end up being an upgrade for the Irish staff.

9:23 - Sean asks about the possibility of safety Houston Griffith returning to Notre Dame after he decided to enter the transfer portal.

10:25 - We talk transfer portal, and the positions that Notre Dame should focus on.

12:07 - Sean asks about Mike Elston and the rumblings about him being connected to Purdue as its next defensive coordinator.

13:43 - Darin shifts the conversation to the NFL Draft, and we discuss the possibility of Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah being a Top 10 NFL Draft pick.

18:49 - Tight end is the next topic of conversation, and I'm asked if in ten years we are talking more about Cole Kmet or Tommy Tremble.
