certainly not saying he will change positions. But his athleticism could possibly lend itself to safety or rover if wr does not work out. His attributes seem close to tranquill’s a couple years back....

I pray I’m wrong but the formula on BW appears out. Load the box on obvious running downs and drop 7-8 or back in throwing downs with a spy. Towards the end of the year teams replicated this formula...

Yes!
Under Kelly ND primarily fades as the season unwinds. It’s now a broken record. Now i do think scheduling needs tweaked and has something to do with it. It is beyond dumb we forgo a natural...

I wasn’t that early for me. The real red flags for me came soon after when we beating teams by 20+ and wimbush was barely at 50% completion rate throwing very safe passes. I thought we were on...

Blaming Kelly for wimbush is way over the top. Wimbush was never an accurate passer and his mechanics have always been terrible. He has gotten by on insane athleticism. When teams figured how to take...

I’m never one to blame a loss on one guy. But seriously, wimbush was so, so bad in the Miami game he never gave us a chance. Be it His TO’s and missed opportunities (i.e. inability to hit wide open...

IMO Long is fine. He has done done great all season. Red zone offense is fantastic. Something BK has been notoriously awful at at ND. Wimbush couldn’t hit water from a boat during the Miami game. No...

Right now the most discouraging aspect of our team is punt returns. We are not blocking other team's gunners. As soon as we catch the ball we get pummeled. We could have Deion Sanders back there and...

Times of changed and different offenses, but Wimbush's strengths seem more akin to Tony Rice. Those of us who remember Rice, when he throw for 150 yards it seemed like 300. The run game and option is...

The problem with up tempo offenses is they put a lot of pressure on your defense, especially if they are not clicking, which can lead to a lot of big losses. ND fan base would never tolerate...

I think Kelly would be fine to great at schools that overall have a more reserved outlook toward football success. Essentially schools that want to win (more than lose that is) and be competitive,...

Trust me. I’m not signing up to be his defense attorney… He just looks defeated and out of gas to me… that seems telling. Hope it turns for him.
