The ironic part to me is that PJ got impatient, and is now starting ahead of a redshirt JR who waited his turn.

I certainly understand the position of a player preparing for the draft. I guess question really is;: wouldn't it be better for ND? If your extra practices, and the game itself were focused primarily...

Sitting out?

Sorry if this has already been addressed elsewhere, didn't see it at a glance....Are any seniors planning on sitting out the bowl game?

This has long been a pet peeve of mine, but I'm kind of...

Sudden defense

I remember during Manti's freshman season watching him shoot a gap and blow up a RB in the backfield, and thinking that I was seeing a different breed of defender than I was accustomed to at ND. I'd...

To clarify, I wasn't equating Kelly's tenure to Lou's, merely comparing to everyone else that came after. My point was that, big picture, the program is at a level where it hasn't been since 1993.

Last night was awful, no excusing that. We were outcoached, outplayed, outhustled....on and on. The worst I've seen since Miami 2 years ago, same feeling. We couldn't execute on a very basic level,...

Good example of why its always a good idea to read the other threads before starting a new one. I hadn't realized that this topic was under discussion on a prior thread. Mea culpa.

I really feel like we have no shot at the playoffs, but I'll play along. The only chance we have is for the Big12 (Oklahoma) to completely crap the bed. Even then the chances of us getting a spot...

Wisconsin travels to Ohio St. in 2 weeks. We would normally think of this as a knockout game; a team in front of us eliminated. My contention is that...

Yeah, I can't imagine that we're in anything better than the 7th spot (taking the future schedule into consideration). Problem is that the 6 spots ahead of us could be filled by any number of teams,...

Our short yardage run blocking has long been a source of frustration for me. I can't really blame Quinn, the problem predates his arrival. We have had great linemen (what is it, 3 straight 1st round...

I think my biggest concern (after the first quarter) was our inability to convert 1st downs in short yardage situations.

Ian will play more like Ian, young LBs have talent but will suffer growing...

Next year's roster

Not sure if it's safe to poke my head out yet? Meltdown over?

Wondering how many starters we will return, and who the maybes are. I know we lose Drue and Coney, also Tillery on defense. If I'm not...
