Notre Dame football not found on one analysts top 30 post-spring rankings

When both major polls release their preseason top 25 teams, Notre Dame football will surely be one of those teams.

With that said, 247Sports Brandon Marcello doesn’t believe that will be the case. He released his top 30 rankings following spring practices, and the Irish were nowhere to be found.

You do have to give him some credit, as he had an explanation ready. Marcello believes there are “too many new pieces at crucial spots,” singling out the quarterbacks and wide receivers. It’s hard to disagree with his hesitation and not putting Notre Dame in his top 10, but omitting them all together is a bit off.

At worst, Notre Dame should be on this list, as they are better than the majority of teams ranked below No. 15. At the end of the day, Marcello’s rankings don’t matter and Freezing Cold Takes has surely bookmarked this post.
