2007 Record 7-5??

2007 Thoughts. "Paper" analysis. I think a 7-5 is a probable record in 2007. That's whoever is fired or hired on the coaching staff. WHOEVER is Quarterback and God help the lad survive with our inexperienced O line. If 10-2 causes grumbling 7-5 will separate the true fan from any bandwagon ND guy.

 

I do think regarding the QB situation and our inexperience Coach Weis will be junking a QB starter at the end of any quarter simply to try to get something no matter how small going score wise which is a luxury we did not really have with Quinn being the only guy worth mentioning.

 

 

Georgia Tech: A win but barely

 

Penn State: An Away game and a loss. I've see the rabid fans, the white outs etc. and I think our lack of talent and young guys can't handle it

 

Michigan: Away. We get thumped again.

 

Michigan State: Home. A new Coach there but a win for us.

 

Purdue: Away. Did well will do better but a win, barely

 

UCLA: Away. Somehow I think a win which gives us false hope

 

Boston College: Home. A loss

 

SC: Home. A loss

 

Break in schedule....

 

Navy: Home. A loss finally

 

Air Force: Home. Win

 

Duke: Home. Win

 

Stanford: Away. Win but close

Possible guys. I hated to put Navy down as a loss but my feeling was if there was there will never be a better time then 2007 to break that record string and make this the first class to lose. 8 straight games before a break with some young guys. I looked at how dinged our vets were when our break was after 6 games. But it's "paper" as I said as non of us know the changes coming, the 5th year guys coming back or whow they shape up come March. Jeese I just thought also of injuries.

we wont lose to a service academy, thats all coaching

 

i think the 3rd would be BC or purdue

 

i see purdue as a much bigger threat than BC though

 

we wont lose to penn state, there not that good, ga tech i think could be a loss just because it will be a first game starting against that d for our QB and alot of new o-line guys, but they will have no offense

 

really its not going to be a bad year guys, im telling you, you will be suprised in my opinion, but then again i trust our offense to be prepared, no matter who the qb is

ill take a shot.

depending who is QB the Irish could struggle early on offence.

im not sure which teams have what seniors leaving so that could effect my predictions.

 

Georgia Tech: will Calvin Johnson still be there? win for ND

 

Penn State: win for ND, but close

 

Michigan: loss for ND

 

Michigan State: win for ND

 

Purdue: win for ND

 

UCLA: win for ND, but close

 

Boston College: win for ND

 

SC: loss for ND, hopefully close (how bad is it when you feel a loss and just hope its not a blowout :cry: )

 

Break in schedule....

 

Navy: win for ND

 

Air Force: win for ND

 

Duke: win for ND

 

Stanford: win for ND

 

i think there could be a surprise loss in there somewhere to bring the record to 9-3 instead of the 10-2 i currently have predicted.

eventhough ND wont have Quinn and company, i still expect them to be able to go out and have a chance to win every game they play.

Michigan, USC, whatever :roll: ..bring them on!

well it seems like we are getting ready for 07, i think that you Will see an irish team that will struggle in just about every game, but we will get stronger as the season wears on, sure we will have a lot of mistakes , however i see a good TEAM EFFORT with no MONEY players, this providing that we get some speed on defense and a couple of power runners, dd will get us going i see jc getting his chance about the third game and we will lose but you can see the improvement. as for defense cord , can't fault him to much got to have material to work with, besides if we fault off or def cord's were finding fault with charlie. as he is responsible so lets get some speed and runner we will be OK . as for 5th year guys not sure, just hope that zibby is back for a while anyway. we might go 6 and 6 but will be much better in 08. what say you ?

not to throw to many stones but i think we could have played more of the rookies to let them get a taste of the action. why is it that just about every game we see on tv they have a very good power runner. we got to land one pretty soon we don't need dancers. whay say you :lol:

has to be Jones, no way jc will get the nod. Jones has been the scout qb all season . we need speed and power, we will struggle in every game til we get to the service teams could lose the first six. what say you? :lol:

i cant sit here and say i think the Irish will lose more than 2 games.

i know some games will be tough, especially early in the year when ND puts in a new QB and works with recievers that have little experience.

McKnight and Samardzija are both gone, whos left? ..Grimes? West?

hopefully Carlson will return and give this team an experienced reciever.

 

i have hope and faith that the Irish will be able to pull out any close game.

Georgia Tech: Home game and a WIN

 

Penn State: will be close could go either way, but I think we can pull this one out WIN

 

Michigan: At the big house, Mike Hart, Mario, and Chad Henne all possibly back, sorry might be a blowout, hopefull we keep it close though LOSS

 

Michigan State: New coach, but program will take awhile to get going and there is not Dbag Stanton WIN

 

Purdue: Closer than you might think, but a WIN

 

UCLA: will be a close one I think, but we will pull it out WIN

 

Boston College: BC at Notre Dame Stadium, will be a good one, and it will be a WIN

 

SC: Even tho next year this will be the #1 team in the country, I think they return about 17 or 18 starters, it will be a close game, but SC will pull it out LOSS

 

Break in schedule....

 

Navy: at Notre Dame stadium, extend the streak WIN

 

Air Force: WIN

 

Duke: no contest, WIN

 

Stanford: prolly close and Stanford might be able to pull off the upset, but I think Clausen who will be way matured by now will have a good game and the Irish WIN

 

I may be thinking unrealisticly, but a lot of these games could go either like I said Stanford will be a lot better next year, along with Penn State, and UCLA and they could all three beat us. Not too mention the scary thought of USC being even better next year :(, but the difference is next year the defensive speed will be starting to take shape and will be better, its just a matter of an offensive line that doesnt completly suck and an inexpierenced quarterback coming into his own, also need some receievers to step up big time. Running game will be a strong suit though with Aldridge and Walker, GO IRISH.

mark or corso NEVER < Just trying to tell you that the irish will have a tough time against the first 6 or 7 games, and thats a fact, jc will not be ready , how can you think that? from high school to one of the biggest football teams in the country, in such a short time, the scout team QB will be the starter for the season opener. he has the advantage over the others, and charlie likes him, case closed. yes i hope jc is to the rescue, but lets not pile all that hype on him, like we all did for this years team , look what it got us a team that had to struggle to beat every team we played, i don't think that there was a team that we played where the offense was up to par and the defense was up,, sorry thats just the way this old fan sees it, go irish forever. :)
