Notre Dame isn't finding a whole lot of supporters in the media for their game against Georgia this weekend. Just about every pundit is picking the Bulldogs to get the win in this one.

Joining the chorus of people predicting a Georgia victory is FOX Sports commentator Tim Brando. The FOX play-by-play commentator is not only confident that Georgia will get the job done, he thinks Notre Dame doesn't even have a chance.

On Thursday, Brando tweeted that he thought it was a mistake to have the game in primetime. He added that he expects Notre Dame will be "crushed" and that the game will ultimately be an afterthought.

The Georgia/Notre Dame game is not only NOT a Playoff game, it’s also IMO a mistake to have put in Primetime when LSU/Alabama has historically been the CBS Primetime decision in November. Notre Dame will likely be crushed and by November the game will be forgotten. #TheTruth

Notre Dame is a 14-point underdog heading into Samford Stadium this weekend.

The Irish have been the butt of many jokes leading up to the game. Analysts, computer predictions, and general form seem to indicate an easy Georgia win.

We'll all be eating crow if Brian Kelly and his team can orchestrate the upset this weekend.
