Rivalry Reanimated Final Thoughts

Hey folks, thank you for following my last series, focusing on some of the more famous rivalries that stopped being played in the 1980′s and 90′s.

I’ll be giving a quick recap of each series and put together some things I found interesting about the project.

Miami-Notre Dame

Series Record at time of cancellation (1990): Notre Dame led 15-7-1
Series Record of Reanimated Rivalry (1991-2016): Notre Dame leads 14-12
Combined All-Time Record: Notre Dame leads 29-19-1
Longest Miami win streak: 6 (1999-2005)
Longest Notre Dame win streak: 7 (2010-2016)

Notre Dame started out with such a big lead because they played Miami for a decade before the Hurricanes actually got good in the 80′s. Since The U’s first national title, the series has been very even. Miami actually leads since 1983, but just by a few games. In the Reanimated series, both schools enjoyed periods of alternating success. Currently ND is dominating the rivalry, having won the last seven games against their the Canes.

The Story of Joey Schmidt.

 Joey was told he was too slow, too small, not athletic enough to even play for Notre Dame. So the handsome blond put in some hard work that led him a nobody walk on to the starting MLB and captain of the team. Compared to the massive 6′8 300lb OLinemen Joey has to take on in every game his 5′11 230 does seem small. Still through intelligence, hard work and determination this sexy version of Notre Dame’s “Rudy” went form walk on to the team’s defensive MVP. Not bad for a cute little hunk from SoCal. To bad a few “bad apple” Irish fans take out their frustrations on Joey. Calling him, “umpa lumpa” “hobbit”. They think Joey is just not athletic enough to handle the huge monsters that play college ball. To them he is just the pretty white boy who can’t paly but gets all the girls on campus.Like or loathe him the guy earned everything that he has achieved. And like it or not Joey Schmidt is one studly work of manly hottness. Yes, maybe Joey is no Shawn Oakman (the monster in the last photo). Oakman stands 6′9 340lbs and Joey 5′11 230lbs. I for one would love to see Joey Schmidt vs Shawn Oakman. I believe Joey would truck Oakman and take him down, That is before the massive Oakman beats the “Schmidt” out of Joey.

Lets here some feedback.

So how do you think would win in a Joe Schmidt vs Shawn Oakman matchup?

What do think about Joey?
