Biggest,Fastest,Deepest!

Recommended Posts

Yes favorable comments are flowing from all over as the irish impress this spring--even ESPN is seeing the writing on the wall !---- you wont here much preseason anti-hype this year-- the irish have no playmakers-- the irish are too young-- the irish stunk last year and will stink again----The PRESS is becoming seduced by ND and rightfully so !

 

In fact, if you want to read about our shortcomings-- our inablity to produce anything real on the field-- our endless question mark positions-- and our untested coaches---you better just read our covy of negative posters right here, because you wont find much of it in the national press. WHY??

 

Because this 2009 team is the BIGGEST_FASTEST_AND DEEPEST TEAM IN ND HISTORY!!!----- can that be true or is it just hyperbole? well boys it is true, after purusing our rosters for the last 15 years or so-- going back to a time when all PLAYERS AND TEAMS WERE SMALLER--this 2009 team, on balance is the biggest -the fastest and the deepest-- since ND started playing football------------WRs -- deepest and fastest ever

RBs--- adding WOOD this is close to the fastest and close to the deepest and definitely the biggest ever

OL-- are much malinged oline has threads on how good or not, they are but no denying this is the deepest and biggest group EVER!--- they look like the cowboys out there--- 6/7 6/8 tackles-- two 335 guys-- everyone over 300 and a nice two deep!

TE-- fastest group by far

QB-- two good ones where is lovechio-- clausen brings down the team speed a bit LOL

DB-- tallest ,fastest deepest

LB-- endless years of slow plodding backers are over over over!!!

DL-- with johnson- williams- williams-- KLM-- biggest down 4---and with- neal -stockton- richardson- newman- cwynar- nwanko-deepest as well

 

 

Forget the last two years of growing pains and coaching changes--

The reason the press - the oddsmakers-- and the pollsters-- are

reacting in such an unusually positive manner-- is because they can

see " THE WRITING ON THE WALL "----THE 2009 TEAM-- is the BIGGEST FASTEST DEEPEST UNIT TO EVER START A SEASON AT ND !

Hawaiirish , you are my early favorite for poster of the year. I applaud your positive attitude And truthfully that's the way I think it should be. A new season should bring a new hope, especially this year. Or maybe it's just that I'm a lifelong cubs fan and every year I believe is our year haha

Totally agree with you Hawaiirish, but this is just the beginning. What happens when

we get rid of our weakest class.......the senior class......and ad the next MONSTER

class next year!! I'm looking at the talent coming to the Blue and Gold game and it

might be the greatest group assembled at one time in the history of college football.

Pray for good weather. We don't need the blizzard we had a few years ago.

It seems to be some of you guys and gals need a date very bad !! --- maybe its just a little frustration from those long mainland winters---- anyhow i'm off to the nude beach this morning--- it keeps my head clear so footballs dont get confused with other things-- as we say out here " Lucky You Live Hawaii"--- maybe a trip to the tropics would do a few of you some good! aloha

Good point about the press building us up this year...but I'm sure they're only doing that so that they can tear us down that much more easily if we have a say...10-3 season and "underwhelm". If they said we sucked from the outset, then they couldn't tear us down so easily

this for all those guys who hammered the S&C coach Mendoza.

 

In Mendoza's interview he gave some numbers on the weight program.

 

Mendoza said that Clausen was not tested when he first came in, but last March his bench was 255 and is close to 300 now & his squat went from 315 to 375 with his vertical jump going from 21 inches to 26.

 

Ethan Johnson arrived in August, he benched 345 and hang cleaned 245. Now he is benching 365 and hang cleans 285.

 

OL #'s on bench/squat/hang clean:

Olsen: 485/655/325

Duncan: 475/550/335

Young: 425/550/335

Stewart: 485/585/300

Wenger: 405/600/305

 

Mendoza also offered some numbers to support the improvement of the team's strength since he arrived.

 

When Mendoza started in 2005, two guys were hang cleaning 300 pounds, now 25 guys are there with another 19 close.

 

One guy was vertical jumping 34 inches, now 23 guys with another 11 close.

 

Eight guys squatted 500-plus, now 34 guys with another 13 close.

 

Two guys benched 400-plus, now 24 guys with another 18 close.

 

Just a few tidbits, this also shows the types of guys we're bringing in too. CW is bringing guys who already put in work or come in ready to work. Great to see the improvement. I think in 2 more years the #'s will be even bigger.
