Please do not go on meltdown and be respectful!


Recommended Posts

No matter what happens, please lets be bigger than the other sites and state your feelings in a respectful manner. We are adults.

 

If we come out big Saturday, lets act like we been there before (because we have).

 

If things aren't to our liking, then remember what we have already done and there's alot more football in this season and no recruit there is going to make us or break us. Lets show that this site has our heads screwed on tight. You can meltdown on many other sites as I am sure will happen. It's been fun to speculate and be in on it to the very end.

 

We are NOTRE DAME. Wish the players the best and celebrate anyone that we get.

 

Lets act like DomerDomain men and women.

 

Thank you!!

 

(I have locked this thread and don't put this in a sticky (not many reads them first. In the morning, any Mod or Admin please bump this thread. Thanks!!)

I think that it helps to remember that no matter what happens Saturday (and I expect good things), nothing can take away the good things which have happened this season. The comebacks, the goal line stands, Jimmy to Michael, Golden, Kyle's big plays...those things happened, we experienced them, they can't be undone regardless of whether the outcome Saturday is disappointing.

On the other hand, negative memories can be overcome by positive results. Last year's disappointing loss at SC fades in the face of a great day for the Irish.

If we play poorly this week, we can take comfort in the knowledge that this team is capable of greatness, we have seen flashes. If we play well, the knowledge that this team has been less than great (at times) in the past, fades.

Excellent points, I just teeter on the reality that we could have lost some very close games (we also could have won the one that did get away)...

 

While this season has been a success, it's a very fine line away from being a total disaster.

Agreed! We could easily be 5-0 OR 0-5 or anywhere in between. The margins are extremely tight. JC has proved he can move the ball down the field at will. The red zone offfensive performance could use some improvement and I expect the practices will focus on that aspect. The question will be can JC move the ball at will against arguably one of the best defenses we have faced thus far? And how will he perform if that defense rattles him with an interception or some sacks and/or a lot of 3 and outs?

 

We will find out this Saturday whether or not our offensive firepower is for real or not. My belief is that we will move the ball on USC and surprise them. I don't think you can stop JC. We must however do a better job once we get into the red zone. With our defense, we will need to get it into the endzone and a bunch of field goals won't cut it against USC.

 

Expect a shoot-out with an Irish victory! Let's hope the defense comes to play and has its best performance of the year.

I'm not too sure of a shootout Rockne..It's possible tho...

 

I hope that word hasn't been mentioned in the main Sports media.

 

Over the years when a talking head says 'shootout' I've observed it never is. So I would like JC to really air it out some and that word is a no, no to me.

 

For me it's lumped with a 'talking about'...Who the heck was talking about some other player? Not me. Just some filler from the color man.

I'd settle for an interesting shoot-out. I'd rather watch a good shoot-out than to be shut-out.http://img291.imageshack.us/img291/363/loluk4.gif

 

Oh ok, let's air it out!

I had a meltdown when the market crashed as well speedster-- all that was last year---this year is a different animal you know it as well as i do----if we lose to the team you all expect us to lose to-- WTF is there to meltdown over---i may be in grieving or meditation but certainly not in meltdown----I'm more interested to see how this board handles success!

 

A win against USC and a bunch of USC wasnt that good as it turned out-- and BC and Pitt will be the big tests-- and weis is lucky to catch USC on a down year---etc etc etc--- if that becomes the post win tenor of too many posts-- THEN I AM GONNA FLY INTO CYBERSPACE AND TAKE SOME NAMES AND AZZ's--LOL----Im on record as fully as possible-- and if i'm wrong i'll take it like a man

 

Notre Dame Beats USC!---- aloha go irish!
