Notre Dame's Recruiting Mail Suggests Team Will Win National Title In 2019

Notre Dame is going to have a magical 2019 season.

Notre Dame is in the midst of heavily recruiting a number of the top players in the 2018 class, and in the process, the program seems to be making some bold predictions. Monday, four-star cornerback Houston Griffith tweeted out a photo of a trading card he was created by the Fighting Irish. On the back, it says that Notre Dame will crush Michigan 48-10 in his freshman season and...wait for it... the national title in his sophomore season. That's the 2019 campaign, for the record.

For the record, in 2016, Notre Dame finished 4-8 and did not play in a bowl game.

We're not saying it isn't possible - there have been quicker turnarounds in sports. But Notre Dame is going to have to crush it on the recruiting trail to make it even possible. Who knows - will Brian Kelly still be around in 2019 anyway?
