Thud FSU 18 ND 14

Late with this–had to let the over indulgence of grog wear off. So what do you say about this except that for the past month the ND Offense must not have practiced and that includes the coaches. So what did we learn: 1–We don’t have a QB–Rees and Hendrix just erased themselves–maybe not fair to […]

#17 Russell

KeiVarae Russell 6′ 170 speed Running Back commits to ND over Washington. Sorely needed and good compliment to power back Will Mahone. Nice present just before Bowl Game.

Squibs

Kiel-commits to LSU-not overly concerned since we have depth there and Luke Massa could move back to QB if necessary. Darby–CB commit looks very shaky. FSU QB—looks pretty damn good to me–can throw on the run and has great escape ability. ND Frosh–time to live up to hype. Title Game–should be LSU vs. OKLA STATE. […]

Notre Dame vs. Florida State in Champs Bowl

Wanted to get this in early–but all I really had to do was look at a common opponent of both teams–Boston College we barely won 16-14 and FSU beat them 38-7–kinda says it all. I never bought all in on the ND OL-Think they were “decent” with Cave along with RB Jonas Gray but the […]

Jake Heaps

Charlie on a roll– first Crist-1 yr. 2nd -Jake Heaps (sits a yr) who the big man wanted badly when at ND–now Charlie has to figure a way to protect these guys. Since he no longer has to play with all those silly rules about going to class–he loads up on jucos–all you have to […]

Just What We Needed

Matt Barkley not going pro. I predict: 1-Heisman, 2-USC plays in Title Game. If Denard Robinson back at Michigan– that’s 2 automatic losses for 2012.

Week To Go

Recruiting going down to the wire–really nothing left to comment on without jinxing the outcome. I really hope Kelly has put in a lot of misdirection and counter plays as well as figured out a way to help the center. Center problem is a direct result of never giving the 2nd’s meaningful playing time. Golic […]

Back To 16

Ronnie Stanley 6’6″ 280 4 Star OL commits to ND–Good news all around. Bishop Gorman HS in Vegas makes 16–need 1 more OL and I’m looking for a big pure center. Kiel has to make a decision now–got him 3 OL now need to get receivers–he commits no doubt we get someone special this class […]

Football Recruiting

Just like every year recruiting is a kabuki dance with coaches flying all over the place getting commits, poaching and basically pleading with a kid for a free ride to ND–just think what that diploma means– and to be handed one and say I’ll think about it. Not only are the coaches trying to fill […]
