No. 13 Notre Dame-Navy: Pregame buzz on social media

After a long offseason of entrances and exits from the transfer portal, assistant coaching changes, and a star-studded freshman class join the fold.

The Sam Hartman era (or season) is upon us and for one, I couldn’t be more excited. Notre Dame doesn’t have sky-high expectations this year – from a national perspective anyway – but this team has a chance to do something really special.

We’ve been waiting for this since the clock hit 0:00 against South Carolina in the Gator Bowl in late December. As you could probably expect, the pregame buzz is already strong on social media ahead of Notre Dame’s opener against Navy.
