ND is HORRIBLE

First of all let me say - I am not an ND hater. I actually like ND.

But you guys are seriously demented.

If you think a win over a service academy, struggle and squeak with Purdue, and a win over an overrated Michigan State squad indicates you are a good football team, then it is obvious you have no collective football IQ. Brian Kelly is your problem. He does not seem to have any offensive strategy; he just dials up random plays, and usually random pass plays. Why so pass happy Brian? No confidence in your O-Line to establish a running game? And to make things worse, he puts so much pressure on the QB, the mistakes that actually happen are bound to happen. And he will never blame himself for the mistakes...just gets red faced and yells at his QB who was doomed from the start.

Let's see what happens against Michigan, the team that got mangled against a quality SEC squad. Michigan sucks; don't get too excited with a win. Just be prepared to be carved up like a Thanksgiving turkey when you face a team that has a balanced attack.

Hmmm...making me hungry for a deep fried turkey. Fare well my Irish friends. Gotta look for some peanut oil and my frier now.

Brian you should be ashamed.
6-7 Michigan turnovers and only 13 points.
Your play calling and your offense is not very good. Sorry, you're in trouble down the road.
I am obviously not a fan of Kelly but it does feel good to beat Michigan this year.
Thanks Dinnered, it's been real.

Lastly, I wonder if this "SEC Rules" mental midget is just salty because Kelly wouldn't come up off of his digits at the gay leather bar last weekend in Alabama?

HAHAHA.....

Another domer showing his mighty wit and football smarts. Is that the best you can do? Call me gay? Man you are a force to be reckoned with!

By the way, twit, there were 6 Michigan turnovers, not 6-7. I guess it is way too much to expect a domer can count that high anyway.

Hope you feel great about your lame "win" last night. Maybe you will get 6-7 this year.

SEC Rules!

ND is not horrible. ND is not great, at least not right now. But there is no doubt that ND possesses an SEC-caliber defense, and if ND can show some rapid improvement on offense, ND can be a force to be reckoned with by the end of the year.

ND is #10/11, so your opinion that ND is "horrible" seems not to be shared by intelligent people who vote in such polls.

Al...

Thanks for not calling me gay. Although Brady Hoke is a mighty good looking guy...hmmm....

Enough with the polls dude; polls are meaningless. Number 10 ND 3 - Number 3 LSU 48. Not pretty.

Fact is ND is being sold out. Sold out by a coach who runs a knucklehead offense and, more disturbingly, sold out by an AD who can't negotiate a crap, much less the future of your program. If you think you will still be independent after being forced to play 5 ACC teams a year....well delusional. ANd what is with Jenkins? It makes it easier on our scheduling that we have 5 games locked up? Since when does ND worry about scheduling games? Your president is a royal tool.

As I said before I like ND. A relevant (and independent) ND is important to football. Trust me, I argue this all the time.

I would love to see ND compete against the SEC. You used to...when I was in college on the '80s, ND regularly played LSU, Alabama , Ole Miss and Tennessee. Right now, you would be mangled by the SEC (well except Tennessee, they suck now too, but hey would beat you). All I am saying is get a coach that can run a decent offense. Under center, establish running game, throw the ball when it makes sense. And run an offensive strategy. Kelly is an idiot. You, of all football fans, should be offended. Not taking comfort in a poll. You play Alabama or LSU, you get destroyed. Sorry that is just the truth.

Well, SECRules, so much for your LSU and its vaunted defense.

I stand by my earlier post with respect to ND's defense - it IS an SEC-caliber defense. The offense is improving, although daU's defense is so bad, I fear that my not have been a good guage. One thing is clear, it is a team that is becoming more and more confident each week, and after years and years of losing, is learning how to win.

Hats off to Mr. Kelly - keep up the good work, lads.

Oh, by the way, polls are part of the equation as to who plays whom at the end of the year, so they're certainly not "meaningless."

No doubt Al, you had a good game.

Also no doubt that your front 7 on D is stout and has a lot of heart. Teo should win the Heisman for his outstanding play. Your secondary continues to be suspect, but you cannot argue with the success the entire unit has had.

Also, I am sure you must be especially happy about the way you ran the ball in the 2nd half. Now why hasn't Kelly done that all year? I still think he is a knucklehead.

It is now a distinct possibility you may run the table..personally I think one of your biggest challenges may be BYU, but you have them at home and you should be able to take care of them. Stanford, OU and USC will also be tests; you get through those it will be very interesting.

As for LSU, definitely off this year. Testimony to another knucklehead coach. I would be very interested to see ND against the Tide or Cocks. I wouldn't put any money on your boys yet though.

Can't worry about the Tide or (now one-loss gamecocks). ND's only concern is the Cougars.

Um....the Cougars? Al, do you mean BYU, or do you think the University of Houston is going to make a miraculous run at the BCS?

Al, the Cougars (although a serviceable team) should be easy. You might as well be fretting about Pitt then as well. What about the Sooners? Or maybe the team out there in LA?

Although, now I think about it, maybe you do need to worry about a passing team. Your front 7 is stout but the four in the backfield are weak sisters. Diaco should teach the corners that playing a zone coverage scheme does NOT mean you ignore a receiver who breaks toward the middle of the field and meanwhile you just cover grass. The CBs need to learn to press that coverage and force a receiver to run a bad route. Those Stanford receivers were not that good, but they seemed to have their way with the corners. And what is the deal with the soft two deep coverage anyway?

Amd speaking of that team in LA......they do have NFL type receivers. And a very good QB.

Anyway, never thought I would say this in 2012, but Go Irish! Gotta love Manti. He would look great in crimson.

NOW we can focus on boomer sooner. They are, of course, very good. But ND, if they play well and protect the ball, can win, even in Norman. ND's O-line will have to have a dominant game. I expect that our D-line will be pretty dominant. With pressure on Landry Jones, who's not all that mobile, ND can disrupt their deep passing game and help our DBs. With 7 games under their belt, out D-backfield are no longer "weak sisters."

Manti mighta looked good in crimson, but U$C was his only other school. GOD told him to go to Notre Dame. In another life he could play in Tuscaloosa, perhaps.
