Former Notre Dame quarterback Phil Jurkovec took a shot at the Fighting Irish in an odd Instagram post on Saturday.
Jurkovec began his college career at Notre Dame. After falling behind Ian Book on the depth chart for his redshirt freshman 2019 season, Jurkovec transferred to Boston College.
Ahead of Saturday’s matchup between BC and ND, Jurkovec reflected on Instagram about his experience with the Irish. In his post, he took a few shots at the school. One came when he said the school doesn’t live up to its virtues.
“Notre Dame holds some of the highest ideals and these are very difficult to live up to. I don’t think the institution practices its stated virtues in all aspects of campus but I urge it to do so because I think it can be better,” Jurkovec wrote.
Then he closed his post by suggesting Notre Dame practices cultural appropriation by singing a Dropkick Murphys song, and that the Fighting Irish are “nothing but a brand name.”
