Notre Dame's hot start seems to have cooled with the start of conference play during the past few weeks. The Irish were swept by Pittsburgh on the road this weekend. Sunday's loss was their fifth in a row. Michigan and Villanova added to that list last week. Notre Dame is now 4-8 in Big East play and 19-14 overall.

What has changed after the strong start to the season?
They're probably regressing a bit to the mean, but based on the few games I have seen the pitching staff has lost some of its dominant control. They were one of the best teams in the country in walks per nine innings heading into last week, but the entire staff has since issued an usually high number of bases on balls. Pitt started its rally in this afternoon's game with a three-run home run that was set up by two batters walking right before the big hit.
Hopefully they can turn it around, but they are really struggling now.
