If you were looking for Notre Dame players to be hanging their heads and feeling down after their Fiesta Bowl unraveling then freshman running back Audric Estime was the wrong place to work.
Estime, who was one of three running backs called upon to make up for the absence of star rusher Kyren Williams, made a grand proclamation on Twitter just after Saturday’s game.
I will win the Doak Walker award and a national championship next year. Until then it’s time to work…
