  2. Excited about Shamrock Series Nationally ranked opponent smart, physical, balll control controlling line of scrimage like navy mertz is good smart and well coached team big 2 gap DT Smart Physical, typical badgers ND's in good shape health wise Not to much intel from Coan New chapter for Coan BIG LB's for the Badgers More OL rotation Carmondy Tosh rotating outwide Joe alt finding a role need to sustain drives offensively Prince Kollie is available Buchner in hamstring treatment, probable OL needs technique but also game experience transitioning on the Offensive line- rocco mentioned holding down the fort while we transition Tosh, Blake, Mike and Joe have bright future at tackle 3rd and short is ok, base dive play averages 6 yards likes the running game we have big play guys we need to make big plays and get off the field on defense Senior receivers are sent confidence preparation matters will see more flipped corners not sure on Coans extra year of eligibility Coach that has not won a National championship Talking to your coaches before players is important we can't mix messages Like to be on the same page What they hear after the game matters Controlling locker room narrative Joe alt could do some Tommy tremble jobs, need to recruit more trembles likes to play in NFL venues, selling point to players Prettly level headed coan. Kelly yelled at Coan, Jack handled it great JD needs a break. Kollie might help Pryor can really run, playing to those strength Stretch of games is tough, Need to stay healthy and grow as a team defense played with confidence, need to tacle better, focused on the fundamentals, much better against Purdue Need to force badgers off schedule new recruiting rules. 25+7 gains recruiting flexibily, not big on it for ND Christ is outstanding, togh physical etc.

  5. #12 ND (3-0) vs #18 Wisconsin (1-1) AKA The Coan Revenge Game Time - Noon on Fox Place - Soldier Field Line: WISC -5.5 O/U: 46.5 Team General -Played 2 games so far (1-1) -Close loss to Penn State (16-10) who just beat Auburn -Blow out of Eastern Michigan (34-7) -Was one of the harder hit Covid teams last year, and there record (3-3) showed it. Offense General -2020 was their lowest scoring AVG in 15 years (25.1 PPG) -Lot of staff changes in the offseason. New QB, RB, DL, and CB coaches -HC Chryst goes back to play calling as well as QB coach -Offensive line should be solid but was pretty meh last season. -Gave up 2 sacks vs PSU, and 3 total on the year so far (2 games) Offense Passing -Mertz sputtered after a hot start last year -So far in 2021 (2 games), 0 TDs and 2 INTs for Mertz -Top pass catchers returned -Class of 2017 Danny Davis leads WRs with 129 on 11 catches -TE Jake Fergeson leads TEs with 69 yards on 12 catches. Offense Rushing -Jonathan Taylor was gone... and Wiscy struggled last season.... -Class of 2019 RB and Clemson transfer, and one time ND recruit, Chez Mellusi has stepped in and taken the starting job. 144 on 20 carries (7.2) vs EMU, and 121 on 31 carries (3.9) vs PSU. -2 other RBs, Guerendo (8.7) and Berger (4.1) are capable in the rotation. Defense General -Led the B10 last season in total defense at a tick under 300 YPG. -DC Jim Leonhard flirted with the Packers (their DC position) in the offseason, but he opted to stay (or maybe didn't get the job). Regardless, he's good. -Returned 8 of 11 starters -Hank Poteat brought in to coach CBs. This group likely the needs the most improvement. -ILB Sanborn is very solid managing the middle, but also are very productive blitzing. Predictions ND 17 / Wiscy 13 Ugly game. Neither offense will look good. Coan is efficient, but not flashy vs his old team, and has just enough success vs Wiscy DBs to look better than Mertz. Buchner delivers a few times with his legs, and one deep ball Whoever wins the turnover battle, wins the game Foskey delivers with multiple sacks on Mertz, and Kyle gets a key INT BK goes purple at least twice The board has a hissy-fit when Melusi breaks 100 yards The board, after the win, forgets about our woes on D from the past 3 games, and turns their poo poo to Tommy for only scoring 17 PS - My alter ego keeps telling me Coan erupts for 300+ and 4 TDs, and the Irish roll 38-13 on the big stage.

  6. Even with the O-Line woes, we have a better and more diverse offense than Wisconsin. They will run it 35 times. I hate to be simplistic, but if we stop the run we win the game.

  7. 1. 13 points allowed. first game under 20 in the freeman era. You know i feel that under 20 is the magic number 2. Defensive signs worked well for communication, only one real mistake lining up that we could see. 3. Positive turnover margin. Won the turnover battle. Lost by 3 last game 4. Made a run inside longer then 10 yards, to close the game 5. Avery gave Mayer a break. The safety has to respect Davis or Mayer will get doubled.

  8. Again guys these are my notes. they go in order but not completely spell checked/grammar checked things of beauty. Defending Purdue WR Bell: Variety of looks, bracket,trail robber, mix it up Normal week of practice: During fall camp and after a sunday game practices were messed up. But we got after it this week. Raised level of preparation Carmondy- Game time decision Botelho, Diggs are available! Jordan can help us at Viper on third Down, pass rush Watts, game was too close for developmental time. Kiser: took helicopter down wanted him to feel special QBs; ALL 3 are getting reps Growing Tylers plays Zeke and Cain will be replaced by Andrew Kristofic will play Purdue QB: Accurate, keeps plays alive, doesn't risk the ball Return game: Kelly chose the fair catch, getting better blockers Jojo Johnson: ACL(season) Osida achillies

  12. If you ask me why I can't vote in the storm poll I created. I just believe Kryen Williams and Kyle Hamilton have what Charlie Weis used to call the "IT" factor. When the chips are down and their backs are against the wall I just think those two respond, Some one compared Kyren to Golden Tate, while I think both are very good, and Golden can run faster and jump higher, I'd put the heart of Kyren against anyone. Kyle is the 6'4 Georgia player, one of the best safeties i've seen who took the road less traveled. He like Manti, could have been 1 of 11 at a Football Focused school, but he chose to be a Notre Dame Captain. I refuse to think their will be a storm while these two players are at full strength, and honestly I'd rather be wrong then to think it will happen first.

  13. I am glad we are not alone in this. My friends and I were worried that people would just blow it off, but when announcers for multiple games voice their frustration (Jesse Palmer went on a rant during the big game in Week 2, multiple games this week), something needs to be looked at. I am not even that bothered by a penalty, but ejection is ridiculous. Targeting 1: 10 yard penalty Targeting 2: 15 yard penalty and ejection Targeting 2 would be classified as a malicious hit without regard for safety and/or the sportsmanship of the game.

  17. Across the board, it just seems that there is a different vibe around ND recruiting as seen in the 2023 class so far. Probably the combination of elevated expectations (aiming for Top 5 target classes vs Top 15), recent regular season success, good NFL history (especially OL & DL) of ND players and Freeman being a catalyst / role model for other coaches to step up their recruiting game.

  19. I feel like ND has won so much lately(25 at home), I think like 12 regular season games now, we are waiting for a rain storm and almost trying to be the one that predicts when it happens. The teams fighting and clawing to hang on and we're just waiting to see if they'll climb up or fall down. One thing I will caution everyone is dark clouds sometimes pass without a storm, We could also witness a big storm. Either way there will be lots to talk about.

  20. I've said it before and I really think this is going to be the year for a program who's been built upon super seniors: Iowa, Wake Forest and the like to really have a chance to break the mold and get into the playoff. I'm not saying it's going to happen, but if there was a year, this is it. The ingredients are perfect: NIL distractions from year 1, The transfer portal balancing the disparity among the programs which probably won't fade after this year, Covid adjustments and some really awesome stadium experiences will help the home team as these players didn't have it last year Allowance of super seniors will help tremendously when you have a player who's 22-23 years old and been there done that is a big advantage against even the most highly touted 18-19 year old kids.

  21. I don't have any relevant info on this, but I would expect the crowd to be more ND than Wisky. I realize Wisky is the 'home team' for this one, I just think Chicago (my home town) leans far more ND than Wisconsin.

  22. This game is tricky for me. Wisky will keep running(literally) the same gameplan all game. ND has been susceptible to giving up the big run. So, you have to think Melusi is going to break loose a few times. Just have to hope ND can open up the offense this game now that some of the left tackles have a little experience. No game pick for me this week. Who knows…

  24. still not bothered by it. Notre Dame has not been impressive at all yet this year. They dont deserve to get bumped up at all. Having said that, IF Notre Dame wins out, they should be fine, especially with Clemson and OSU looking pretty bad with a loss already. Notre Dame just needs to win and continue to work on the little things and everything will fall into place.

  30. I think its absolutely ridiculous that offensive players have ZERO responsibility for avoiding head-to-head collisions. I remember a few years ago Tuitt got ejected versus Pitt because at the last second the Pitt QB ducked down and there was head to head contact but Tuitt had already started his tackling motion. He would have needed to be superhuman to avoid the contact. Its completely unfair.

  41. Wasn't directing that at you. Apologies if it came off that way. I was talking to the TR Boo Birds out there lol. See the Helton thread.... I'm not buying or selling at this point personally. He had near a top 10 start in his first season though, and did it with a very low dollar passing attack. Even if our O takes a step back this year, I'm not hitting the panic button. I'd like to see what he can do next year with TB before making any adamant statement. Had a good OL for the most part last year though, which helped. I agree he'll be tested this year with the OL struggling. Not sure we can get away with ground and pound, so will likely see some more dynamic mix (at least I hope).

  42. My thoughts Limited track record We don't know how heavy a hand BK applies to game plan and scheme Had a low ceiling QB, which played above his star rating Was 11th nationally in offensive efficiency vs the 8th toughest SoS, in his first year. Too early to crown, but if you're poo poo'ing him already, you're probably ignoring the obvious great first year, and have something against TR personally, or just perhaps unwilling to give him a chance.

  43. I may, just depends on how the other games are doing and Im sure Ill be checking the score, if it is a close game, Ill switch it. Not sure who to root for since I live in Vandy territory and both are great academic schools. I may want Stanford to keep winning simply to make us look better when we beat them. Maybe... but that will just vault Auburn over us because they are SEC. I'm sure Penn State will lose a random one in a the B1G.

  45. I think we're due a big storm... Looking at this team I see 5 losses and then a slight recovery next year with only 2-3 losses. Our Oline is a mess and I really do not see much improvement this year due to injuries and new players. We have had a nice run for awhile but I compare it to Liverpool soccer team. They had a 68 game unbeaten streak or so at home and then they lost and everything went to crap for awhile (lost a few in a row). Now they are readjusting and improving and on a ten game unbeaten streak..

  46. I agree with your overall points. A few elaborations related to your thoughts. 1. I can’t be sure if it’s a Coan issue or a Rees issue. There were a number of times Coan could have kept the ball and run for decent yardage, but when Rees was QB he never kept the ball and ran. So, I don’t know if with Coan they’ve reverted to what Rees did when he was QB, or if Coan has the green light and he’s not keeping and running. Both QB’s should be able to execute the read option imo. 3. I agree that running backs are getting to the second level very quickly when we run a 3 man front. It’s not working. If they keep it, both the down linemen and the linebackers better execute better. Here again, you’re spending practice time teaching different techniques. It’s stupid in a limited practice time situation imo. I wish they’d scrap it till (hopefully) they have the speed to create chaos.
