Notre Dame's loss to USF this past weekend was as tough to watch as any I can remember. The Irish made mistake after mistake. In the first half, the team looked deflated after Jonas Gray's fumble was returned 96 yards for a touchdown on the Irish's first drive of the game.
In the second half the team played semi-inspired, but at that point the Irish would have had to play perfectly the rest of the way in order to win. Although the team put up 20 second-half points, Tommy Rees' two interceptions (only one was his fault) and David Ruffer's 30-yard chip-shot field-goal miss put the game just out of reach.
I don't want to dwell over every mistake, and there were many more than the few I listed above. So now it is time to look ahead. How can the Irish move forward and redeem their season?
