  1. Really happy they won! This year won't be a BCS year that is for sure. Honestly, I am not so sure they end the year in the top 20. Hoping they can hang on to recruits and gain some new ones.
  2. I get Peacock at no cost with my comcast service. That said, when I tried fast forwarding there were problems. Hoping that's the last game on the pcock.
  3. Coan isn't the best choice if the OL is going to struggle. Tough break for him. I do Coan would be good if he had more time to throw. Buchner is the future and the way it looks, it's probably better to get started now. Also, maybe Buchner burning a year of eligibility this year means they get a top 2023 QB signed.
  4. Keep Quinn. My starting OL for game 3 is LT Patterson, LG Spindler, C Correll, RG Maiden & RT Lugg. Quinn puts ND OL in the NFL. I think there have been some misses on OL that he's recruited and combined with the players that graduated, they are struggling.
  5. With the LB injuries and the good DL depth, I sure hope he runs more 4 man fronts going forward.
  6. Hoping that Nwankpa saw Hamilton's performance and thought that will be him in 1 or 2 years! Doesn't seem like there's much confidence regarding the remaining 2022 guys.
  7. Thinking Freeman had a bad game whether that falls on him or player execution, is fair. Thinking he's a poor choice for DC at this point is ridiculous. Literally 1 week ago he was being thought of as the next HC which is also ridiculous. Way too much reactionary thinking going on. I expect these type of posts after losses but wins too.....Some need to slow their roll.
  8. I think any defense that utilizes 3 DL needs that 320LB NT in the middle. Hinisch is close and the newer DTs will be an even better fit. Also, if the schemes are going to be predictable, you really need to execute because the OC is going to call specific plays knowing what the def is running.
  9. According to the logic from some on this board, if it rains today then it must rain every day thereafter! Ridiculous.
  10. ND should be able to sign an elite 11 level QB at least once every 2 years. Too many times it seems the staff is looking for hidden gems.
  11. Would Davis, Wilkins or Keys even make gameday rosters at Ala, Clem, OSU, Okla or Georgia? I don't think so. I like the WRs the staff has been recruiting the last few years and I hope that continues.
  12. I just hope that Botelho doesn't get frustrated and transfer after the season. I do trust Freeman to keep him motivated and happy though.
  13. I like the idea of Freeman being the next ND head coach but it's obviously a bit early to beat the drum for that. He's a dynamic recruiter and having top rated players contributes as much to winning as the actual on field coaching.
  14. Rees should be on notice. IMO, Kelly should give him another year and reevaluate. I would not have opened up the offense last year for more passing with the WRs they had. In the short term, I absolutely think Kelly should recognize that ND hasn't recruited QBs well outside of Buchner and take the lead on the recruiting trail. QBs like Buchner or better should be the standard every year.
  15. I don't think Rees/Kelly prefer a ball control offense. Would you have a pass first offense with the receivers they are going to send out there this season??? I wouldn't.
  16. I thought I read that ND has been late to recruit QBs the past few years. If that's true, jumping in late puts them behind from the beginning. I would really like to see the staff do better with evaluating their QB prospects earlier and starting the process much sooner. It would be preferable to lock in your QB recruit early as one of your 1st commits so they can be the player recruiters/leaders that they typically are.

  18. Time For Irish To Look Beyond 'The Notre Dame Guy'? Marcus Freeman Says Yes (rivals.com) Freeman is bringing a fresh approach to ND's recruiting and it's fantastic. He just seems to "get it!" There's more to being a HC than recruiting but more and more, I want Freeman to be the next ND HC whenever that time comes. Worst case and Kelly wants to stay on board longer than Freeman wants to wait, if I'm Swarbrick I tell him that you are the next HC when Kelly retires. I'm hoping that OSU is the only HC job he would take over ND in the future.
  19. I don't know anything about him but it seems as though their is more forward thinking when it comes to the staff. I like that they are at least trying to make improvements.
  20. Great addition! I am guessing if ND gets Nwankpa, Moore will be a CB. If not a safety. It would be nice to have a 6'3" CB!
  21. The plays work much better with good players. The coaches recruit the players......
  22. I wouldn't say the offensive side is striking out but I would say they are behind the defensive side. I would guess it might be as simple as saying the 2 best recruiters are Elston and Freeman and they recruit for the D. If I were Kelly, I would simply tell the offensive coaches you must do better. Having/keeping the players is as or more important than coaching them. The WRs that ND is going to put on the field this season simply aren't NC level. QB recruiting is Ok but again, not NC level. Coach Kelly, you are very close to getting there! Push the coaches harder.
  23. Listened to an ND recruiting podcast today and heard that ND gained some ground with Rice. Apparently he really connected with Blake Fisher. Also heard that Singleton and Scrauth are really on the fence between ND and the in-state schools.
  24. Not a shot at Craig but I think the staff realized it wasn't looking good for the Wisc OL guys.
  25. Very happy with how recruiting is going. However, the offensive side needs to step it up especially with the skill players. Possibly CB too if I were to nitpick. A national championship level roster is not out of reach. I hope the offensive staff pulls out all stops to get there.
