The Glow of 8-0

Nov 15, 2020

A Poem by the Fighting Irish Preview Poet.

2020 the year of Covid

We’ve loved our Irish and we vo-ted.

A bye week ranked #2 at 8-0,

Let’s review and enjoy the glow.


Week one the Dukies they were tough,

Valiantly fought to call our bluff.

But we got to know a man named Kyren,

Running the football became his play-pen.


Next up South Florida Charlie Jr. coaching ‘em up,

A guru of offense and ND guy since a pup.

The defense tenacious and C’Bo a stud,

A 52-0 bashing, Jr’s offense a dud.


Game 3 Florida State came to town,

Looking to avoid an Irish beat down.

But points were cheap Kyren Williams ran wild,

The once great Seminoles again were defiled.


The Cardinal next came looking to spoil the roll,

Jonathan Doerer for a half the offense’s soul.

The oline then inflicted insult and injury,

A brutal close game ended in victory.


The Pitt Panthers hosted the first game on the road,

Proud of their defense, Narduzzi blather flowed.

The Irish offense was balanced Skowronek scored two,

Ian Book and great defense led another breakthrough.

Next on to Atlanta against Georgia Tech

The Irish were favorites to blow out the Ramblin’ Wreck.

A 31-13 win, just a oh hum day,

But a perfect 6-0 with #1 on the way.


The date had been circled, Kelly had to admit,

The Irish greeted Clemson with some old school spirit.

Ian! Kyren! Avery Davis! The Defense! #1 went down,

A monster step taken towards an elusive national crown.


Now the Irish have gone to 8-0 at BC,

Skowronek and Book hooked up for three.

Penalties and turnovers a bit of a mixed bag

,But the glow of 8-0 is something to brag!

  1. Nice post. I was checking constantly this blog and I am impressed! Extremely helpful information particularly the last part 🙂 I care for such information much. I was looking for this particular information for a long time. Thank you and good luck.

  2. Youre so cool! I dont suppose Ive read anything like this before. So good to find someone with some unique thoughts on this subject. realy thank you for starting this up. this website is something that is wanted on the internet, someone with just a little originality. useful job for bringing something new to the web!

  3. One more thing I would like to talk about is that as an alternative to trying to fit all your online degree tutorials on days and nights that you finish work (considering that people are tired when they come home), try to obtain most of your instructional classes on the weekends and only one or two courses in weekdays, even if it means a little time off your saturday and sunday. This is really good because on the week-ends, you will be more rested along with concentrated upon school work. Thanks alot : ) for the different guidelines I have acquired from your blog.
