We need Weis to recruit the skill guys and Kelly everything else.

 

This team with Clausen/Quinn and Floyd/Tate/Kamara is up 28-21.

 

Agreed. It is baffling how Kelly didn’t recognize he needed to recruit more speed and a QB that can stretch the field. Perhaps he knew it but just couldn’t close. Who knows, but our lack of speed is so obvious and the reason why we aren’t elite v

McCloud has been exposed the whole game. Alabama was probably salivating knowing he would be covering Smith. And then he got hurdled by Harris too not even trying to tackle him, just closing his eyes and diving at him.

It also seems like Bama has run their offense to a snails pace. Almost if feeling sorry for Nd or knowing that ND is probably always going to be good enough to be #4 and giving Alabama a chance to be # 1 and play them every year. Easy win for him.

A bullshit penalty on a touchdown pass

 

How do we always get that lucky?

 

Yeah. Refs will keep a flag in there pocket at this point in the game unless it was so blatantly bad. That was eh.

I’ve loved Book.

In the end, players gotta make plays.

He didn’t.

The result doesn’t fall on him alone. But he just made too many bad throws today. Unforced errors.

 

Every play matters. This team started the last two games as of there were do-overs allowed.

 

On to next year.

our weakest link in these games is always our QB play! our Defense has done a great job containing Alabama especially in the second half....but we can't really seem to score. Alabama offense is good but their defense is suspect! ...i love Book but we need someone to take us to the next level.........i wish we would get a transfer from somewhere.

31-7 is close?

 

It's about what kelly averages in big post season games

No but the Kellylovers will say hey it was pretty close!

Step 1. Blame academics and thank kelly for all he has done.

Step 2. Find any excuse to absolve Kelly of **** poor recruiting at QB and WR, CB

Right on cue. Turd polishing engage!

 

Not turd polishing at all.

 

Only pointing out the defense is capable of keeping games close enough to win with an elite offense, which ND is far from having.

 

You can take it how you want, ND needs elite WR and an elite WR. Otherwise they are pretty close. Still not good enough to win a title, but good enough to be in these games.

Could be the fewest points they’ve scored all year. Defense hasn’t been great, but good enough if you have an elite offense.

 

Exactly. We are on their level now in the trenches. We are still way overmatched in the skill positions.

Book 164 yards

 

Jones 300+ yards

 

Great QB recruiting and development by Kelly

We are not "in" this game and never were. It was over at game prep. Moral victories are not a thing.

How come the 2 or 3 fastest Irish WRs don't see the field?

 

How come other programs have freshman WRs actually get some plays?

Disagree. Our D only looks slightly better because Bama decided to slow things down to a snails pace.

 

We are bad. Just plain bad. Completely outclassed in every facet of the game.

Yep. Bama could have poured it on more if needed or wanted.

Alabama scored 40+ on everyone this year. What did you think the defense was going to do?

 

Correct, they could’ve gottend 52 like last week vs top 10 Florida. Or 42 vs Georgia. Etc.

 

Worry about the total lack of offense, not the defense that was never going to keep Bama under 40 no matter what.
