Notre Dame football is off to a 1-3 start, and if things weren’t bad enough, the Fighting Irish got made fun of at tonight’s presidential debate.
Frank Fahrenkopf, the co-chairman of the Commission on Presidential Debates, took a friendly jab at Notre Dame President John Jenkins when he introduced him. Jenkins is in attendance tonight, as he is on the board of directors of the Commission on Presidential Debates.

Ouch. Not the kind of thing Irish fans expected to happen when the season began.
Notre Dame is off to its worst start since 2010, Brian Kelly’s first year as head coach. The Fighting Irish also started 1-3 that year before seven of their last nine games to finish 8-5.
