Notre Dame fans stormed the field Saturday night after beating Clemson 47-40.
Following the Fighting Irish beating top-ranked Clemson, fans rushed the field like they had just won the Super Bowl. You might think I’m kidding given how absurd such a thing would be. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)
Well, I can promise you that I’m not kidding.

I’m sorry, but Notre Dame is aware that Trevor Lawrence wasn’t playing, right? They’re aware that Clemson’s best player wasn’t on the field, correct?
How embarrassing is this for Notre Dame and their fans? Was it a solid win? Yes, there’s no question about that at all.
Everything was rolling their way to get a win, and they should 100% have expected to win. You know what you don’t do when you expect to win?
Storm the field. You act like you’ve been there before.

Shame, shame on Notre Dame! I honestly expected better out of them.
