  1. I've always heard he was an ND lean. But it wouldn't surprise me if we lose him to osu. Juniors loves us, seniors not so much. When i first heard of this guy they were calling him a running back. Does he play a lot of running back on his team?
  2. I'm not just talking about last night. It happens almost every game.
  3. Goldies: young: if teams are gonna try to stop the run, we need some speed out their to punish them. Frownies: Houston griffith: they threw the ball right past you. He hasn't looked good this year. Secondary tackling: outside of gilman I'm noticing our guys can be reluctant to engage. They'll chase down or tackle from the side but when someone is coming right at them, they don't go for the legs an upend them. They'll just try to are tackle them
  4. GA and bama would be in for sure. the other 3 would be based on money imo. On a side note, I think michigan may be the only program that could scare bama
  5. I'm not sure he's doing that great a job at recruiting. He needs replacing.
  6. We beat michigan and instead of getting props, harbaugh gets the hot seat. They made it seem like us beating vtech in blackburg would be the upset of the century. Only after we win did they start saying vtech hasn't beat a ranked team at home for a while. Now a barely 500 northwestern team was goingtoderail us. I admit we play to the level of our comp but geez give us a little respect.
  7. Our offense is becoming pretty predictable. Fortunately we have learned to make some halftime adjustments. Survive and advance baby.
  8. I agree. Okwara is held alot.
  9. You think crawfords career is over? Hate to hear that. I was always a fan.
  10. I didn't go for exact numbers or details. It was to simply show how a coach can be portrayed. The same way not everything said about urban or saying every other school save a handful are out of control is true. I loved that you used the word "misinformation". It was the perfect choice. And that's not sarcasm even though it might sound that way.
  11. So a good QB is important to a team? Thanks, I didn't know that.:peace:
  12. And kelly has at least 20 arrest. 3 players attacking police officers. A rape scandal that was kept out of the media. The same player kicked and killed his girlfriends dog. we had to forfeit games. chronic academic issues. And you best believe ND got a fixer lawyer as well. So one could easily spin it to make BK look just as bad if not worse because ND was an institute that never had these issues and under kelly it looks like an SEC school. To the point it now appears they have taken discipline out of his hands. And when our players flunk classes, people start saying we need easy courses to keep our guys in good standing. Kid flunks a drug test and then folks start screaming legalize it. Say what you want but urban is ND's fans wet dream.
  13. Yeah, but actions speak louder than words. we'll have to revisit this when kelly leaves. Dude tarnished his legacy by being unrepentant scumbag, recruiting a literal murderer, and when given the chance to apologize to the wife of a woman beater he hired and kept even after knowing he was a woman beater just said "I'm sorry we are in this situation." But he wins and that's the key. I remember after our 4 win season and we were tossing out names. Chip Kelly's would come up after he was sacked for breaking rules. I bet it wouldn't come up now. A losing season at Louisville will hurt Petrino's reputation more than him getting caught with a student. Nearly every elite college coach winds up in a scandal. And as long as they win they are forgiven. Just like an elite player. I bet javon Mckinley couldn't drink like Michael Floyd and remain on the team. It's hard to stay at the top and the expectations and pressure is immense. Then you have us. On one hand we claim to be so virtous and only want coaches that maintain a clean program. While on the other hand we want to win 12 games a year. You ask too much.
  14. To be fair, NCAA has some wonky rules as to what is a graduate, and it's not exclusive to him. That happens a lot in the SEC. Just 20+ players arrested? That's about the same neighborhood as ND under cbk. I find it funny that we are 1) undefeated 2) We might have the COY. Yet we're talking about Urban and the possibility of him coaching ND. I agree with colt. Everyones a moral pillar until those hypothetical could become a reality.
  15. I'm with you. I don't see simon staying at the rover position.
  16. So next year you see gilman and elliot starting? who backs them up? Also, this may be the superstition in me talking but how can we get kyle to cut his hair? I see him and think Max redfield.
  17. You and me both. My first thought is it's bad news. In fact I get nervous anytime I see a players name in the title and it doesn't have "Is Irish" at the end.
  18. You see him being ahead of allen and/or griffith? Or even a vet like studstillm
  19. With ian looking really good is there a chance of us going back after some high ranked receivers that may have committed elsewhere? Last year we had 2 transfer who weren't that great jump into the mix right away. This year we moved 2 defensive guys over so my spidey senses are tingling. Even armstrong is being used more as a pass catcher his last few games. I don't think the world is coming to an end but it's something worth watching imo. Also, kyle hamilton appears to be a stud all over the field. Any shot he winds up on offense? Seems like he might have a quicker path to playing if we catching the ball.
  20. Serial is good. I only listened to the first series but it was good. Wsbt sportsbeat does a really good job with notre dame football as well as irish illustrateds podcast. They are both worth checking out. There is one called mafia if you are into that time in history There is also the und athletics podcast where you can catch kelly's press conferences along with his weekly radio show. Shaquille oneal's podcast is pretty funny and worth checking out. It's not a basketball show.
  21. I hope you're not intimating what I've been avoiding saying? Johnny football
  22. You scared me there. You can only take so many players on the road. If I'm playing navy who is not a passing threat, i might opt to take an extra lineman or linebacker as well, considering the injuries those guys face playing this team.
  23. Every message board has those guys. He can say whatever he wants. We are the number 3 team in the country. Sure we play down to our competition at times but, we are the number 3 team in the country with quite frankly one of the best qb's in the land. If that fan can't see that, he better hope his team and their coaches can.
  24. He has been so exposed on a national level, I'm not sure a national program would want him for anything more than a back up. i like his chances at a MAC, AAC or Conference USA school if he wants a shot at playing qb. Russell Wilson is the exception, not the rule it seems. It may not hurt him to stick around and switch positions a'la Braxton Miller. If I were BK that's what I would encourage. It's becoming pretty clear Phil is not going to see the field much if ever again this year. If Book gets hurt or something (remember the academic scare a few weeks back?) BW would be nice to have as an option if PJ got stage fright.
