Marcus Freeman is finally in the win column as Notre Dame’s head coach following the Fighting Irish earned a 24-17 victory over California on Saturday in South Bend, Indiana.

Drew Pyne hit Michael Mayer on a six-yard touchdown pass to place Notre Dame ahead 24-17 with 9: 16 left in the fourth quarter.

Unfortunately for Freeman, his team’s performance won’t help obtain the skeptics off his back.

The logic behind promoting Freeman to the very best job was sound. The 36-year-old was a high-level assistant increasing and poised to obtain a head coaching opportunity somewhere soon. Given his age, he is able to lead an application for ten years or more and offer lots of long-term stability aswell.

However the extent of Freeman’s learning curve was clearly underestimated.

Losing at the very top coach and replacing him with a 36 year old who hasn’t done the work before isnt as easy since it looks https://t.co/HPwYKFSEkK

could it be just me, or does Marcus Freeman appear to be he’s aged 10 years?

Marcus Freeman seems headed for that grand opening, grand closing tenure

I simply have second-hand sadness for Marcus Freeman

Irish certainly are a leaky team at this time which — once you consider the actual situation happening at this time — is practical. Marcus Freeman is completely new, this staff — in this existence — is, too. Team scrapped after two Ls. A location to start out.

Freeman’s defensive influence was evident toward the finish, though. Isaiah Foskey specifically wreaked havoc on the Cal offensive line in the fourth quarter.

Monster play by Notre Dame EDGE Isaiah Foskey! The fantastic pass rushers arrive in moments like this. Foskey showing why hes a rising prospect with first round potential.

Notre Dame’s pass rush has already established each day, Isaiah Foskey’s fourth down sack ends Cal’s drive to tie it. Notre Dame gets control with 6: 30 remaining.

If the Irish offensive line can match the defensive line in production, Notre Dame are certain to get its first win of the growing season.

Things do not get easier for Notre Dame. The Fighting Irish hit the street to play 3-0 NEW YORK, which includes had weekly off to get ready. From there, they will have a romantic date with 12th-ranked BYU on Oct. 8 in NEVADA.

Maybe Saturday represents a turning point. Freeman will surely hope so.
