  1. Didn't Coach Sark graduate from BYU? I wonder if this is easing Damien Mama's mind heading into recruiting... just a thought...
  2. Love the hire and the option-value of being able to run both 3-4 and 4-3 defense - especially given the talent pool currently on the roster. In the past, I've been more inclined to go with the "up-and-coming" coach, but love the fact that we're getting a coach with both experience in the NFL and college football. Should be great for recruiting, and god willing, provide a little bit of consistency at ND which has been sorely lacking these last couple of years... Let's hope the OC hire is just as promising.
  3. Head to head, Tyler Eifert is looking pretty good so far in the major workouts for the day. You can track all H2H matchups here: http://www.nfl.com/combine/ Not saying one will get drafted over another just b/c of the workout results, but you have to feel pretty good about T.E. at TE right about now...
  4. No mention of a certain coach giving him a second chance to succeed while at Cincy either... boy, I had such high hopes for journalistic rigor and integrity from http://chicagosidesports.com...
  5. Santa / Wife was kind this year and brought a new 3DTV to our house. After first getting geeked-up about watching "Finding Nemo 3D" (my kids are small), I find myself now with a ton of questions on watching CFB. Wondering if any of my other fellow DD'ers have braved this new world before me and might be able to answer some of my key questions. Questions like: Are games (more specifically, 'the game') broadcast in 3D? Are there 3D versions of your typical HD channel line-up? Are all employees of Best Buy completely useless? Thanks all...
  6. From my total uninformed opinion, this seems like a plausible destination versus say, BC. I think he was the DC there in '09 and has some familiarity (possibly good & bad) with the program. Not sure there have been any candidates announced now that Butch Jones is at Tenn, but I think this might be one to watch... Thoughts?
  7. Congrats Manti - the first (ever) high school and college Butkus award winner! Well-deserved...
  8. The loss to Kentucky was just another example of the sheer dominance of the SEC. I heard they played with only 10 guys on the field for the entire 4th quarter. As a former MAC guy myself (Miami University), I for one will be cheering for Kent State to crash this party in style. Would bookend this bowl season perfectly with a giant middle finger to those "big conference" types who argue against playoffs: Notre Dame (an independent) in the title game, and a MAC SCHOOL in the Orange Bowl. Priceless.
  9. While I do not post much, I am an addicted reader of DD. On this morning, and as we approach the eve of this weekend's anticipated game vs. the Trojans, I find it appropriate to offer my thanks for such an amazing season to date. So, without much ado, I offer my sincerest thanks to: Coach Kelly: We stood by you. You have delivered. And while this season is not yet complete, I am thankful for giving us hope again after the various false starts this program has endured over the last decade. Thank you for making me a believer again. Coach Diaco: You are the Yin to Coach Kelly's Yan
  10. Anyone know if/where there will be a replay of tonights game online? Looks like my DVR crapped the bed and I missed what seemed to be an amazingly satisfying team win. Thanks all....
  11. Yesterday he officially became Kyle Rudolph- uber-talented, but redundant with GA3 and Theo both looking great. Heck, I was even happy with how Cam was running the ball...
  12. Have to admit, I was a little surprised to see Okwara on the field. While the reviews have been positive from the get go, I sure thought he was a redshirt/save-a-year candidate.
  13. I must admit, I wanted Gunner Kiel to be Irish. I wanted to gloat (albeit a short one) against the SEC while we brought in the nations #1 QB. But alas, it is not to be. I do think this will actually be better for ND in the long run. My reasoning: I believe us to close the deal with the NJ trio of Fuller, Shumate and Wright for 2012, as well as pave the way for a possible Alviti commit for 2013. While this certainly could be wishful thinking on my part, I do wonder if losing the Gun-battle this year, actually nets über-positive for the boys in Blue and Gold. At least that is my wish
  14. Big fan of the work Jonas put in this year, but unfortunately I think we'll never know how good Jonas could have been for us. I certainly think he had a great year, but I think it's way premature to call him the best since Julius Jones. Heck, I think Darius Walker was a more productive back over his career. Not taking away from Jonas' great year, but like Hawaii mentions beforme, I don't think there is enough volume of work to justify the lofty rating provided in the title of the thread. One only wonders where Jerome Bettis was two or three years ago to have the same "play like you are 23
