The Disaster That Was 2007 Notre Dame Football

The first two years of the Charlie Weis era at Notre Dame had been promising, with major bowl trips in 2005 and 2006, even if the latter year ended on a dour note. There was still a belief the Irish were going to get better, as Weis’ highly ranked recruiting classes began to take on more prominent roles. Those hopes crashed hard against reality. The 2007 Notre Dame football team had an awful 3-9 campaign. They were unranked to begin the season and never provided a reason for pollsters to rethink that.
