  1. We may also have about that many losses in that time frame.
  2. I’ve never understood the logic of “not showing our cards early in the season” against teams like Toledo. It’s like, who are we trying to fooL later with our super secret awesome plays? Had we lost to Toledo, would we be relieved cuz we still have super secret plays to show USC or Cinci? Theres 30+ years of tape on Kelly offenses and over a year on Tommy’s offense. Do we really think there is some magic witch craft plays we’re holding onto for good teams? How come we haven’t used them against Bama and Clemson in the past? Fact is our offensive game planning and structure is what it is. Problem is we’re not very good at it this year. Our OL, unless we improve drastically, will neuter our success all year. We’ve scraped by two average/bad teams. The problem isn’t so much the Xs and Os, it’s more the Jimmy’s and the Joe’s… We have to rethink the offense to take into account a poor OL.
  3. As of now, tommy has to completely reinvent the offense to account for a poor OL. No way around it. Buchner was the first step in that as BK admitted. Slow forming run plays, draws, plays that rely on sustained blocks need to be ripped out of the playbook. need to get the ball out of the qbs hands fast, get to playmakers on the edge. bubble screens should be a staple at this point.
  4. Also Diggs is available. C’Bo and Bortello, not so much.
  5. Fisher is Out at least 8 weeks with surgery for meniscus injury. Simon out for the year with torn labrum. things are getting thin already. Nothing derails a season like the injury bug.
  6. I still say something happened this preseason with him (whether the coaches admit it or not), hence him being buried on the depth chart.
  7. But unvaccinated have to wear masks in the stadium. I see that going super well, haha
  8. I don’t see why, other than mop up time to get him some experience. And I’d be very against a “package” like some suggest. I still feel like, if you have two quarterbacks, then you don’t have one.
  9. Has anyone seen a practice schedule/media schedule?
  10. Feel like people are more optimistic on this season than I am. There are a lot of question marks. Potential and talent? Sure. But a lot of this have to come together to expect another 10 win season.
  11. Which flies in the face of Kelly’s, “I have no idea where those rumors even came from…”
  12. Isn’t there potential that some of our current commits could improve their rankings? I’m thinking Sneed and Walker in particular. I know other guys could drop too to offset. Just curious.
  13. I’ve gotten used to watching games after the fact. I’m sure there will be a replay within a day. Is what it is I guess. nbc is obviously testing the waters to see how much more revenue they can make.
  14. I tried to find a schedule for practice and media schedule but can’t seem to find one. Anyone know dates for fall camp?
  15. Interesting. And I kno nothing about what is used today and how long it stays in your system. But if the tests are predictable it explains some of it. I’d imagine some programs don’t have a huge problem with it internally as long as they don’t get caught by the ncaa. Just seems odd that you never hear about it.
  16. Honestly, it’s strange that you don’t hear of more failed drug tests for PED. I can’t think of one major one and I’ve got to believe it’s somewhat common.
  17. ND should have bigger pocket books than most so selfishly I think this helps ND. I assume this levels the playing field to some degree. I.e. Schools that tried to keep it on the down low compared to cash In McDonald’s bags. That said, the rich will get richer and will only widen the gap between the top and everyone else. It’s going to be like the wild Wild West for a while on this stuff. I also wonder if this will create a riff in locker rooms. Star plays making bank, driving nice cars, having nice things and everyone else in the same locker room. I do think college plays should get a cut of the billions they generate but this “free agency” on money is going to be nuts.
  18. Wonder if Kraemer wishes he’d stayed another year now to try and improve his draft stock?
  19. I bet you’re fun at parties...
  20. It continues to boggle my mind how poorly we recruit the most important position in the game, especially considering our overall success on the field. I hate to say it, but even in the few clips I’ve seen, Buchner has a bit of a deer in the headlights look. I know he’s been here like 5 minutes, but it’s never something you want to see from that position. I was hoping he could be the guy this year and just sling it. But I’d be surprised at this point if he even sees the field this year.
  21. Wow a blast from the past. Good to hear from you!
