It’s been nearly four weeks since a coronavirus outbreak sidelined a third of his football team, forcing Notre Dame to postpone it’s game against Wake Forest on September 26th, and jeopardizing the remainder of the season.

Now, Notre Dame is completely healthy with regards to the virus, and that has made a noticeable difference in how the Irish have been able to prepare for the next game against Louisville.

“When you’ve got your team is together, you have depth. You have competition. You have practices that are different because they’re structured in a manner that brings competitiveness out during your preparation.”

“That’s extremely positive in so many areas.”
