College football fans, media react to Notre Dame's stunning upset loss to Marshall
After a disappointing loss in Week 1 to Ohio State, the Fighting Irish were hoping to bounce back in Week 2.
It didn’t exactly work out that way, as the Thundering Herd shocked fans and media by upsetting the No. 8 Irish 26-21. The win marked the first time in 19 years, and only the second time in history, that Marshall has beaten a top 10 ranked team.
Saturday set a record of a different kind for Notre Dame head coach Marcus Freeman. Freeman is the first Notre Dame head coach in history to start 0-3. It’s certainly not how anyone predicted the season going for the Irish, especially after a strong showing against powerhouse Ohio State.
Fans sounded off on social media, sharing their thoughts about the Marshall win
Marcus Freeman is gonna be gone ASAP if this is how ND will be like!

Marshall with their biggest win in program history. Going into South Bend and outworking Notre Dame all game long. Unreal.
On the other hand, the Irish will drop to 0-2, not the start Marcus Freeman was looking for.

1) Notre Dame never should’ve been a preseason Top 10 team, let alone Top 5.
2) Someone get Marcus Freeman a quarterback.

Brian Kelly can coach. Get your shots in now. LSU rolling by next year & ND now 0-2.

We out here shooting movie trailers and can’t win against MARSHALL…🤦🏾♂️ back to the drawing board.

I’m a big Marcus Freeman guy. He has a top 5 class on the way and he’s playing with two subpar QBs.
But you gotta beat Marshall at home!

Buddy, Marcus Freeman is about to start 0-3 as Notre Dame coach with a loss to Marshall in his first home game.
