Momentum is what you are conveniently leaving out of your description. The USF game should not have happened. There is no contesting that. I think that was Kelly's biggest mistake as a coach, starting Crist for a second year in a row. I won't follow that path because "what if" games go on forever. The Stanford game left us playing quarterback carousel on the road against the #4 team in the country. The fact remains that this season doesn't come down to being blown out of the water 4 times. It comes down to 2 plays and we are 10-2 and not 8-4.

1. Jeremy Gallon wide open like yeah.
2. Kayvon Webster's 96 yard touchdown return in a 6 hour game from hell.

Winning a game with 30 seconds left by a touchdown is a 2% probability. That game only ends that way 1 in 50 times. The 6 hour season opener was our worst game of the year. We're right there. Right at the cusp. Patience is your friend.

And ND is just a couple plays from being 6-6, having defeated an awful BC team by 2 and a nearly-as-awful Pitt team by 2 or 3. Your exuberance notwithstanding, the 2011 Irish were and are no better than the 2010 version, despite twice as many RKGs. You are not even attempting to look at the situation rationally. You might REALLY BE Coach Kelly!

Actually, now that I think about it, ND is one play from being 9-3. ND was not "one play" from winning any of the other three losses.

If you wish to have proof of your lack of rational thinking with respect to Coach Kelly, go back and look at your game progostications (Irish blowouts) compared to mine. You will find that I have had much more accurate predictions - hence how I view the Irish and Coach Kelly is closer to reality than your pollyanna opinion.

I think you stopped reading at

1. Jeremy Gallon wide open like yeah.

I already listed the second play.

2. Kayvon Webster's 96 yard touchdown play in a 6 hour game from hell.

I thought the little numbers in front of the 2 plays that were really freakish and strange plays, were pretty obvious.

You predict them to lose every week. How is that even remotely accurate?

From your own mouth.

algoldendomer wrote:Every game is important to you now, but there is ZERO excuse to lose to this AFA team, Brian Kelly.

I'd like to say ND 63-17 but something tells me turnovers and missed defensive assignments will make it closer.

59-33 and zero turnovers. Less penalties than Air Force too. You were off. 26 points is not close by the way. Also if you try to say I called the score or it was closer than it should have been - your own words!

algoldendomer wrote:AFA, tools that they are, scored 14 points after ND put 2nd and 3rd stringers in. I mean, we took a knee on a kickoff return, and AFA blitzed on the very next play! Tools. If I were Brian Kelly, I'd have put my starters back in and I'd have started throwing the ball.

viewtopic.php?f=2&t=31

You should stick with your gut. I don't know why you worry about losing. Your original score was right but you are too big of a pussy to back it up.

algoldendomer wrote:Navy is not good. They're pathetic. They've lost five straight. We're playing them at home. Lose this one, Brian, and all the dogs will be out after you.

You could go from a 4-game winning streak to being in danger of replacement, all in 8 days.

viewtopic.php?f=2&t=40

56-14 isn't as close as you hoped it would be. Once again, you were paranoid we'd lose and you were wrong.

Wrong again.

I had Notre Dame by 21 so we are both delusional. Not really a win for you because we both got it wrong.

I called 42-9 and was way off. You also did not expect to win. I would rather be wrong than be a quivering pussy like you.

I think you asked and they answered. I called a 35 point win over Sparty. You didn't pick because you were too scared.

I also was closer than you on the whole season.

They dropped USC. Which I missed as well as you. I only had a couple games where I was off, but you were consistently whining about how we were going to lose after the Under the Lights game. What I don't understand is this, why did you go all wussy after that loss. It was a stark contrast to your opinion after the USF loss.

algoldendomer wrote:Second, I disagree that ND has some sort of terminal illness that relegates it to second class status in college football forever. If Charlie Weis showed us anything, it's that ND can recruit. Brian Kelly is rapidly proving that ND can recruit defensive players. ND can play at the highest level in college football, and I believe will again. I abhor an attitude such as yours which says that ND cannot.

Yup, I was wrong a fair bit. How'd we do regarding Wake Forest?

You didn't pick. You were using it as a measuring tool (again) for the program.

algoldendomer wrote:Are you really this dumb? Grobe's comments could have come straight from the mouth of Lou Holtz.

I hope you're right - that it's Purdue 2.0. I think Wake is a considerably better team than Purdue, though. And ND didn't turn the ball over against the Boilers. ND nearly lost to a mediocre Pitt team - with turnovers ND is not above losing to Wake.

Alabama, on the other hand, would beat them 100 out of 100 times. That needs to be ND's aspiration - to play at that level.



I on the other hand did my usual overly-zealous asshole prediction. Which was entriely wrong.

coach_kelly wrote:14 point favorites isn't impressive on the road? The home team gets 3 points so at home Notre Dame would be at least 17 if not 20 point favorites. Are you seriously this miserable all the time?

Notre Dame 38 Wake Forest 13

This will be like Purdue part 2


I'm hoping to see scores like I predict on a weekly basis. Am I nutty, sure. My expectation is probably not too far off from yours though. I like to pump myself up for the game and wash away my fears with impossible predictions that are actually kind of what I expect. After going 16-21 at the end of the Weis era, 8-5 and 9-4 are enough for me to feel that 10 or 11 wins are right on target for next year.

Notre Dame won the bowl game?? I must have missed that.

I'll go on record right now, since dopey intends to start Rees against FSU:

Final score FSU 17 Notre Dame 13 Heavily pro-FSU crowd and constant Tomahawk chop get in young Tommy's brain early, plus 4 first-half Seminole sacks and a catastrophic Rees fumble (defensive TD) lead to a 14-0 halftime score. Even Hendrix can't dig out of that hole. 8-5 for a second year in a row

Ok. I will put my $0.02 in.

Notre Dame arrives in a NASA Space Shuttle, exits the shuttle on Stevie Wonder's piano, followed by rainbows and trumpets played by unicorns. Florida State is scared to tomahawk chop because they think that Tebow is behind all this. Stunned and scared, Florida State hands the ball to Notre Dame every single play on offense and allows them to cruise untouched into the endzone. The game is called at halftime for Coach Kelly to begin performing The Sacraments of Baptism on new born babies because his holy power.....

Ok I will be serious. Have I told you my medicine tastes like metal and makes it hurt when I go potty?

Notre Dame struggles. The fans moan. Florida State is confident their defense can hold. The Notre Dame fans are sure they cannot overcome the Seminoles. They will all be wrong. I will be vindicated when the final score is -

Notre Dame 27 - Florida State 21
