Posts Tagged ‘Notre Dame Football’

By The Lion

Overall, the Notre Dame schedule features just two teams ranked in both polls (Standford and Michigan State), followed by a boatload of average College teams, and some chumps.  Based on rankings, the Irish should be favored in every game but the Stanford road game to end the season. 

1. Vs. South Florida – Should be a win.  South Florida just isn’t a good team.  They were better a few years ago and while they still get some recruits, they don’t get anywhere near enough to actually fill out the roster.  Notre Dame’s talent level is off the charts vs. South Florida and the added benefit of bringing them to South Bend should get it done.  1-0.  (more…)

So with optimism on the defensive side of the ball. Can the offense maintain their productivity and solidify the team’s chances of getting to the January…

 
Quarterbacks…
 
10 – Dayne Crist – A fourth year junior who has shown flashes of brilliance and moments of immaturity where he reminds us of Clausen leaving a year too soon. The challenge will be for Crist to stay healthy on a two time surgically repaired knee. Brian Kelly does not use kid gloves when coaching Crist, which typicaly means the coaches have high expectations for leadership and performance. If Crist can continue his 60% completion ratio and throw for over 3,200 yards his role in the offense will be solidified and remove any doubt as to his ability to lead the team. (more…)

Well, we are getting this out as close to game time to ensure accuracy in forecasting tomorrow’s game.

The bowl season thus far (outside a terrible officiating job in the Mizzou v. Iowa game) has been about as entertaining as a wet fart. Sure there’s some immediate satisfaction, but the stench doesn’t leave the room.

That all changes come New Year’s Eve.

Two of the most polarizing programs in the country square off in the Hyundai Sun Bowl. The Miami Hurricanes enter the game with an interim head coach and a lot of uncertainty within the program from their starting quarterback to who will be calling the plays from the sideline. Notre Dame enters the game with their own off-the-field distractions and a true freshman quarterback who will look like fresh meat to a talented defensive front seven. (more…)

Well, we have seen a year go by since the fire Charlie cries were at their zenith… So let’s take a candid look at where we are, where we’re headed and what the future may hold for the irish…

First off the hiring of Brian Kelly was not a one year decision…interim is not found anywhere near his job title or description. The plan is for him to be the long term answer as the coach we have been searching for…However we have to ask ourselves…Is he the guy ?? (more…)

Now we enter a weekend of college football where Notre Dame once again provides yet another rivalry game for a team from the unemployment state. This has been a heated and hotly contested rivalry as Notre Dame snuck one out last year and has struggled as much with Michigan State the past few years as they have with almost any opponent on their schedule… The recent rivalries have coincided with the Weis, Willingham and Davies Era(s) where leadership and emotional focus weren’t exactly our strong suits…However, Notre Dame was also the beneficiary of the John L Smith era as well…you remember this guy right(more…)

Auburn @ Mississippi State

Slams:

Mississippi State is a program on the rise as Dan Mullen has their offense running smoothly. Mullen the former Gator Offensive Coordinator who helped develop Tim Tebow into a cult hero opened the season with an impressive 49-7 over Memphis. Say what you will about Memphis, but they are a division one team and as Lou Holtz says “They’re on scholarship too”… Auburn however has the horses to win this race. Cameron Newton was a top 10 recruit coming out of HS and has been an NCAA journeyman since… However 3 of his 9 completions (14 attempts) went for touchdowns and he averaged over 20 yards per completion in his season opener. Newton added two rushing touchdowns and Auburn also had two backs put up big numbers and an offensive line featuring Lee Ziemba has gone from young and inexperienced group to a seasoned group capable of dominating.

(1) Tyrelle Pryor is a developing great QB whose play will heretofore resemble that of the 2010 Rose Bowl rather than his first two years at Ohio State. FALSE

Pryor is going to have to show me his accuracy and touch have really evolved to be what we saw in the Rose Bowl 8 months ago, rather than the one great, one OK and one bad throws we have seen from him to date.
