  1. Maybe there lies the problem haha. Doesn’t the qb call out the Mike anymore? Isn’t that looking over the line? Knowing where he is. Or are you saying he is saying that once the play is going they are just throwing to a space. But I find that hard to believe too. Because once the play starts the qb has to see the first step of where the safety is. I know what you are saying but the qb has to be able to see over the line to make that call or lease you are just throwing blindly to a spot every play.
  2. Will it matter in the end? Especially, if the playoffs go to 12 teams. You can’t have 12 SEC teams in the playoffs. If anything, this only hurts Texas and Oklahoma IMO.
  3. This sounds like the weekend we need to nail.
  4. I’ll say it and say it again. Book just couldn’t see over the line. He preferred open air and that cost us lots op big plays because he couldn’t see and play pocket qb. Which is why I want Phil in so much. Even if he wasn’t ready yet. Also, I still firmly believe that BK’s offense is better suited for taller qb’s. Hence, why I think Angeli will eventually start and be better then the qb’s they have now. Just my hunch.
  5. I agree about Kelly fingerprint on the offense. But that’s sometimes the case with a head coach. But if he is still trying to push for long chunk plays, then yeah, get rid of him as a finger print. Rees also called a good game against Clemson the first time. I know they had three defensive starters out, but With ND’s recent history of big games, nobody gave them a chance. So kudos to that game. He’s really only called 13 games or so. Two bad games against Bama and Clemson and the rest were decent. I’m not on that firing just squad yet. I was mad when they hired him but am willing to see what can do this season. As Faith put it, this is his chance to show what he can truly do. He’s going to have to be creative more this year than last year.
  6. The one issue I have with Monte is his face mask wearing. Always under his chin. Either take it off or keep it on. It’s never on or fully off. I don’t know why it irks me. Just choose buddy one already.
  7. As of right now I’m completely fine with the way he’s called games. It’s actually the style I prefer to win games. The only problem I saw was second half adjustments being made earlier and opening it up a little more. He had a mobile qb which I would of thought he would had ran more bootlegs, qb draws, play action etc. But I’m sure he didn’t want Book to get hurt with the limited qb playing time behind him. Which is for another topic that infuriates me. we had Kyren, Tyree, And the bowling ball whose name is slipping me name. Along with a talented and experienced offensive line I can see why he ran as much as he did. But his gameplan for the bowl game has got to be better. Well, maybe Bama was just too much. But right now, Rees gets a solid B+ in my book. No pun intended. He now has to hit a homerun with Moore , and win a playoff game and all will be right in Domerville.
  8. Friend that lives here in Arizona albeit a Michigan man said we got a good one. He’s seen him play apparently. Great get by the staff!
  9. Why is every qb lost in this system then? Curious really. It’s like all our qbs are one read qb’s. I can’t think of one really good qb that had the offense really clicking. Maybe Golson for some games. But then he eventually became a deer in the head lights. Is the offense to hard? Our guys to dumb? No talent at the skill positions? I have a feeling Coan is going to struggle and Buchner will fair no better in his first year if he’s the next option.
  10. Sorry last point. Let’s not forget that Weis probably only had 4 true recruiting classes to. Partially his fault but if you remember he got to ND late. His best player in that class according to 247 sports was #100 DJ Hord. Ha
  11. Also, I’m looking back at Kelly’s tenure of getting too 25 according to 247 sports.(let’s face it, that’s how teams win Natty’s). Kelly’s record is horrible. Are we giving Te’o to Kelly or Weis? Because after that it’s all Jaylon. A player who is a stone throws away from ND stadium. Kelly did have three guys at 26. I think it was Kramer, Watt, and Redfield. Not enough to make a dent in “11” years. The best teams that win it every year will have one or two from the top 25 yearly. And Kelly has had 1-1/2 in 11. Now JBrown brings up a fair point. Since Freeman has arrived at ND ND has now “3”!!! In the top 25 for the 23’ class-Styles, Bowen, and Vernon. Now if that’s in direct effect of Freeman I’m not sure. But it doesn’t make BK look good. Now I know it’s early and rankings will jump and recruiting was a mess last year. But that should make it even more impressive that they landed 3 too 25 guys since Freeman’s arrival. Look, all that I’m saying is recruiting had been better recently and all that talk of Nd can’t recruit with the big boys flys in the face of the BK apologists for all those years who just let him sit on laurels. Whatever it is, I’m happy that ND has finally started picking back up!
  12. Curious how many top 25 Kelly has had in 11 years? But my point still stands. Weis didn’t have the luxury of recruiting for 11 years to build that depth that was NOT given to him. Kelly has. What if Weis isn’t fired after that horrible 3-9 season. Does Weis come back and start having winning seasons again? Who knows. Kelly was able to continue coaching after a 4 win season and was able to continue to build on what he had. Weis never had that chance. So I think in terms of building “depth,” you could of seen that with Weis if given the chance. Again, Weis had to recruit big when he came in. Kelly didn’t. Also, in no way am I saying Weis is a better coach. Let me reiterate that. I just think he’s a better recruiter. Or let’s put it this way. If I had to get the top kid to come to ND who would you rather have? I think we all know the answer to that question.
  13. I’ve had this discussion many times before so I won’t get into it to much. But you defeated your own argument. By claiming Weis recruited with an empty cupboard where BK came in with an at least half cupboard speaks volumes to who was better. Weis had to restock. BK had to keep it going. Imagine if Weis already had an offensive line or one with depth. Or for that matter any type of depth anywhere. Maybe he could of recruited more 3 star projects and build depth. But he didn’t have the luxury of ten years to build depth. He had to go after the big fish first and hope later he could build depth. the fact that in year 11 that we are praising BK for getting a player like Sneed is crazy. Now I know you’ll bring up Mayer, a bunch of o-linemen, and Jaylon(1 hour/30 mins away) about BK recruiting 5 star talent. Those guys are usually ranked top 70-100. Weis was grabbing top 25 overall guys yearly. BK is the better coach. Weis was the better recruiter.
  14. I don’t even want Alabama minus. All I know is that ND could of done better. As I kept saying in the past, Weis was able to do it. Now all of the sudden we couldn’t. BS. I get that you can get burned. And at that time, Nd had way too many holes to keep getting burned. But after about the 6th year you got to go back to trying. That first Bama beat down should of shown BK that. Maybe getting Sneed will change who ND targets a little more.
  15. Finally feeling like a Bama style defense to some degree. I would be like Rex Ryan with that D. Tell those boys to get after it every down and let loose. Don’t take a play off because we have another equally talented guy ready to come in and replace you for a series.
