On this week’s show, the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame make a return to Chapel Hill for the first time since 2008, and will face a 1-4 Tar Heel team that is reeling from injuries and is desperate for a win. The UNC football team will look to avoid going 0-4 at home to start the season, but will have a difficult task as they face Josh Adams and a Fighting Irish team that has one of the best rushing offenses in the country. Will the Tar Heels be able to slow down Notre Dame’s rushing attack, how much will the injury to Notre Dame’s starting quarterback affect their offense (if at all), does Rudy hold up as a movie after all these years, and will Coach Fedora be able to jump start his offense that has had difficulty moving the ball the last couple of weeks?

We’ll answer these questions and more, plus with the start of basketball practices, we’ll try and predict who we think is going to make the biggest jump in development from last year to this year, which player might surprise us this season, and which freshman will have the biggest impact on this year’s team.
