  1. Here are my 2 memories of JJ. First, screws up a screen pass designed for him in spring game. Second, plays in a game last year and gets a personal foul penalty called against him for punching a defender who is on the ground. Not impressed.
  2. The short answer to which question? Respectfully disagree. While you may have a point about Book's ability to read defenses, opinion meter goes down if you answer yes to any of those questions. Of course, that's just my opinion.
  3. Griffith/Lamb/Oghoufo/Rutherford: Coach Lea, I didn't really get a shot at ND, but I like your coaching style and I think I'm better than anyone on the Vanderbilt squad. Besides, Vanderbilt is a good academic school to finish my education. If I enter transfer portal, will you accept me at Vanderbilt? Nothing nefarious. No, I'm not accusing Lea of tampering with players. Just tossing this out there. Anyone else think of this?
  4. Maybe because JJ got his first taste of action and got a personal foul for slugging a defender in the chest when he was down on the ground. Lack of maturity and giving no reason to be put back out on the field.
  5. On what basis? Have you ever seen him play on anything than 1 or 2 series in mop up? If you don't think Clark can do well, and presumably don't think Pyne can do well, why not just start Buchner and go through growing pains for 1 year.? My concern about Clark is his health - knee. If his ACL that he's now wearing a brace for needs anything more than cleaning, he'll be out all spring and maybe longer. Not good for prospects.
  6. They have 1 now,and they played the #2 and #3 teams pretty close.
  7. Fact: Vanderbilt had a female kicker play 1 play today. Fact: First female to play in a Power 5 game, 3rd female to play in FBS game. Fact: Her kick didn't reach an altitude of 5 feet. Fact: Her kick traveled about 20 yards in the air. Fact: Covered on various news episodes and social media platforms. Opinion: Manufactured history. About as historically significant as Geraldo opening Al Capone's vault. This is not about equality/inequality of the sexes, sexism, misogyny, etc. It isn't female bashing. I guess it's just me asking a question - why?
  8. 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.
  9. This!! However, whether B10 changes policy or not is irrelevant. CFP doesn't have a minimum number of games requirement. While no level-headed, rational person would put a team that plays 6 or 5 games into the playoff, no one has ever used those terms to describe members of the CFP committee.
  10. Initially cringed when I saw Kraemer "lost," but fortunately he's not out long term. Hope he recovers well. Not really concerned about 2 OL starers missing for UNC game. IMO, ND can't get into a shootout. Needs to control ball, keep UNC off field, and keep defense fresh. I think reconstituted line will still be able to control LOS against a really bad defense. This game will be all about the ND defense. In Lea I trust.
  11. I presume you think a transfer is the way to go if Book doesn't come back. If Book wants to come back, I don't see a scenario where Kelly says no to a QB who would be starting for a 4th year, one with a > .900 winning percentage, and instead goes with a transfer. Now, if Kelly says no because it's time to move on from Book, it's because he has confidence in Clark or Pyne. I just don't see a QB transferring in in the near future. Why do you think a transfer might be the best route?
  12. Meets the criteria for a definitive trap game. However, I don't get all the pundits talking about 1993 as an omen. ND was 4-8 much more recently than 1993. That 4-8 season was longer than November 20, 1993 (the BC game). No one is pointing to the 2016 season as a historic data point for this 2020 team. Why point to a single game from 1993? I prefer to look at this year's personnel, performance, culture, preparation, etc. as indicators. I predict ND 41-17.
