Notre Dame is coming to the Heights on Saturday, and this isn't the same Fighting Irish BC fans have seen in past years. Gone are the days of Charlie Weis and Ty Willingham, Brian Kelly is a good coach who has them ready for BCS glory.
Against a vaunted Notre Dame defense, will we see 2011 Florida State all over again? Will Rettig be *chased* the entire game? Will Deuce Finch get his first touches since the Northwestern game? Can Alex Amidon win a game by himself? Will Colin Larmond Jr see the field? Everett Gholston isn't an elite quarterback, will BC still struggle anyways? Will Mant'i Teo cause havoc in the BC backfield? Will BC score any points? Could the Eagles have the same luck they had in 1993?
Will the cold weather play a factor in this game? Will Alumni Stadium be half filled with Irish fans? Will the Eagles be able to hold their own on national television? How much beer is it going to take to make this game bearable?
What To Drink As Two Irish Schools Do Battle:
Guinness Lager- Two Irish Catholic schools face off, so you have to pick Guinness the beer of Ireland. This is possibly the greatest beer ever created--especially if you have ever had it on draught in Ireland. And don't get me any haggis about it's a meal in itself, and you can only drink one. That's hogwash. This is a great beer ---which is actually red if you hold to the light, and is a must drink for this weekend. So cheers enjoy a Guinness!

Gametime Song of the Week
Informer- Snow. CREATED IN 1993. Yes I went there. I wanted to find a song that came out when BC knocked Notre Dame off their high and mighty pedestal. I really wished that there was a rap song by Charlie Weis or Ty Willingham but unfortunately there is not. Snow is possibly the worst white rapper that is not Vanilla Ice or Kid Rock, but also happens to have a name that is fantastic for a caucasian rapper. In Middle school I loved this song, and still think it has playability. Fast rap fact: he dissed Eminem, who promptly went on to absolutely destroy him in a rap battle. Bad move Snow.
