Irish Huddle - 2017 Quarterback Preview

May 30th, 2017

Notre Dame will start the season with a new starter at quarterback for the sixth straight season as junior Brandon Wimbush begins his tenure as the program's lead man.

What can fans expect from Wimbush this season? How might the Notre Dame coaching staff use him, and will he be asked to carry the team? What happens if Wimbush goes down? All that and more is discussed, and the staff finishes the show answering subscriber questions.
