We are particularly slow on offense. I don't see any speed advantage in our skill positions. I think our linebackers overall are faster, excepting Manti who was great despite his Alabama...

I watched Iowa a few times this year. They are terrible. If Fleck is any good he'll beat them by two TD's. We'll see.

You're telling me Kelly is wrong? If Kelly could scheme his way out of our lack of speed, we wouldn't be getting consistently blown out when we face teams with elite speed and good coaching. I do...

Alabama and LSU have it at every skill position on both offense and defense. I would also question our power. Even without elite speed, if we had more power there's no way we would have been beaten...

I felt the same way about Dan Mullen at Mississippi State. Some people don't know how hard it is to win at some of these historically lousy schools.

Enjoyed how they brought in that big WR in Wildcat and shoved it down PSU's throat.

The Minn. guy didn't have Rocket speed, but had good speed and their linemen coordinated their blocks beautifully. Our linemen look lost out there in space.

That "Rocket Screen" they executed for the TD was a thing of beauty. We run that all the time and it never is well coordinated. The irony is that Holtz either created it, or was the first to really...

It is sad how these guys try to distort the truth. I truly wonder if ND pays them. That tweet was something John Heisler would put out when he was in the Athletic Department. Perhaps Sampson is now...

Yeah, but Lou Holtz won a NC, and if there had been a playoff system back then, would have had a realistic chance to win in 4- 5 straight years. Kelly is way below that bar He has raised the bar...

I think this used to be true, but not anymore. Hell, Kelly went 3-9 and kept his job. That would never happen at Alabama, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Florida, LSU, Georgia and USC and perhaps others as...

We rushed for 47 yards against Michigan. Armstrong rushed for 37 yards on 19 carries against VT. We rushed for 106 yards total vs. VT, but 50 were on Book scrambles. So, our running backs ran for a...

I don't think he's anything special, but we couldn't run against a three man front yesterday. Our O-line has regressed as the crony hire goes into its second year. You'd think Kelly would learn about...

It's going to be awful weather. So, the game will hinge on whether the O-line can play better against VT's front 7 than Michigan and vice-versa regarding our defensive front 7. I haven't seen VT. So,...
