Brian Kelly will become the winningest coach in ND history

Ian Book will become the winningest QB in ND history

-Drew White is so inconsistent. Today he was unbelievable, next week he might be awful.
-Ian Book has officially surpassed game manager. The plays he made, with his arm and legs were special. Add in how he takes care of the ball and weíll miss him when heís gone.
-This is Kellyís deepest team.
-Tremble should primarily be a blocker, has iffy hands.
-Who has a better defense than Notre Dame? I havenít seen one. Do whatever you can to retain Lea, head coach in waiting and all.

Crazy to think Kelly will become the winningest coach in ND history. Needs to get a natty though.

Over the same number of seasons Holtz went 100-30-2

Kelly went 100-37

So nearly identical win losses. Kelly has done it in a more difficult era for ND, I think.

Ruling from the judges?
Lou played way more difficult schedules, not even close really.

For the first time in 25 years or so, I feel like we've been making good halftime adjustments this season.

Recruiting was much more local for almost all schools except ND in the 80s.

Now Alabama can go into any state and get their best players. Same with Clemson. Same with Ohio St.

I think its created a concentration of talent that really isnít that healthy for college football but what can you do?

My favorite part about an ND win anymore is going to a Clemson football board and listening to them complain how bad ND is while ignoring the fact that ND punched them in the mouth and left way too many points on the board in that game.

Today was a good win. Clemson was a good win. This has been a good year. Book is a lot better than I give him credit for and I think in spite of my hemming and hawing over the last couple years he really does have some honest NFL potential. The guy has balls as big as church bells and he improvises well. That stuff today, he had a couple of schoolyard plays that were phenomenal.

Heck of a season.

Also, just watched ND respond to adversity on O and D by pitching a second half shutout against the number one team in the nation for second half (4th Q) differentials.

the second half has been amazing to watch all year

Lea makes great adjustments and typically shuts teams down in the second half

Rees and the OL wear our teams and long demoralizing drives.

How many times this year have we see injury timeouts where the other team is gassed in the 4th quarter.

I listened to Clemson fan whine about how their top def players were out as well as lawerence. Tonight Nd was without their starting center and guard. They were Without two top wrs and their best def player for most of the game. There was also a stretch where they were without both starting safeties. The defensive numbers were actually better without Hamilton. Take that b&$@hes! This team is for real. Next man in!!!

I just learned that since returning to UNC last season this is the first game UNC has lost by more than one score and the fewest points theyíve scored.

Incredible feats for us and them, I think.

Maybe. He sure is fast! But he needs to get in the weight room. Saw more than once he couldn't take a runner down.

This is Kellyís best team with two glaring weaknesses: Shaun Crawford and the field cornerís speed Can we overcome it? Letís hope so.

Best call in our playbook = the broken play. Half the time I wonder why we even designed the originally planned play.
