It seems as if Notre Dame is receiving pretty widespread praise for this move. Bearcats fans know well what a great Marcus Freeman is.
Freeman was a standout during his tenure in Cincinnati, transforming the Bearcats defense into one of the most fearsome in college football.
The 35-year-old coach has had a similarly significant impact for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. Anyone who saw that defense early in the season and who has seen it recently can see a dramatic difference. This is all the more impressive considering that the Fighting Irish have been without All-American safety Kyle Hamilton for the lion’s share of the season’s second half.
Wishing Freeman well and wouldn’t mind a rematch between the Irish and our Bearcats in the College Football Playoff.
