  1. IMHO, TR should be watching old ND games and should steal a few plays designed for the OG #25.
  2. I get what you are saying, but the reality is that most coaches believe you have to earn your spot. If you don't practice well, then there is no reason to put you in ahead of a guy that puts forth the effort and out performs you in practice. The whole idea that someone is a game day guy and not someone that shows up in practice is similar to recruiting 2 and 3 star guys and "coaching them up" to an elite level.
  3. Until the staff is able to recruit at the levels of the elite, ND will be stuck looking at others reach the summit. I do not care who coaches at ND, if the talent gap CONTINUES to grow between ND and the elite programs, the best we can hope for as fans is what we have seen over the last few years (decent season punctuated by a rude awakening in the bowl game).
  4. My phone won't listen to me, and Google keeps giving me alerts from BSPN. It is almost enough to make me switch back to an iPhone.
  5. I completely agree, but some coaches want the ball to start the game and others want it at the half. With Freeman being a defensive guy, I would imagine he would want it at the half as often as possible. I guess my point is that it is preference and probably not incredible critical to the outcome of most games. Side note: I am still laughing about your Fairuza Balk comments. I showed my wife your first post on the topic and she immediately said "does he know she did not age very well" and then I saw your second post.
  6. ...and it is official https://www.espn.com/college-football/story/_/id/32777349/sources-notre-dame-fighting-irish-expected-announce-hiring-marcus-freeman-head-football-coach-friday-morning
  7. According to ESPN it will be announced today and with a introductory press conference Monday. https://www.espn.com/college-football/story/_/id/32777349/sources-notre-dame-fighting-irish-expected-announce-hiring-marcus-freeman-head-football-coach-friday-morning
  8. Because that gives us the best loss. If they lose, as a non-power 5 school, they drop like a rock and then our loss to them hurts a lot more.
  9. ND started with the ball 11 of 12 games this year. I am not sure this should be a major concern...
  10. ND is 6th. If Bama loses a close one in the SEC championship to the #1 team, I could see the committee leaving them 1 spot ahead of ND (who does not have a 13th game). In addition to a big loss by Bama, ND absolutely needs OK St to lose. We do NOT want Cincy to lose.
  11. I would love to see this team in the CFP. I was writing a response on why I think it is impossible, but then I realized we just need OK St and scUM to lose and I think ND is in. Of course, the committee might not penalize losses in championship games the same way they do regular season losses, so having scUM blown out would be helpful. Things we do not want to see are close losses or wins by Bama and scUM. A win by OK St is game over. We also should probably be Cincy fans this weekend as well.
  12. To be fair, Fickell has been very successful at a small time program playing other small time schools. His one shot at a big time program was a 6-7 year.... Also 2010 (Jim Tressel) = 12-1 2011 (Luke Fickell) = 6-7 2012 (Urban Meyer) = 12-0
  13. ESPN is being very wishy-washy about it and just saying he is "favored to be" the next head coach, but then say that LC is also a leading candidate... I blame the interweb rumor mill
