Wait, The Irish are 3 TD Underdogs to a Finnish Ski Jumper?

I've just been informed that Notre Dame is 3 touchdown underdogs this weekend against some guy named Jussi Ellai. I haven't even heard of this guy, so I did some googling. Apparently, he won the silver medal in the 1984 Winter Olympics in Sarajevo for ski jumping. Pretty impressive, I guess, but I refuse to believe we've fallen so far that we aren't expected to stay competitive against one middle-aged Finnish guy. Woof, talk about rebuilding.
