10 AM fall practice starts and the only thing of interest that I got from Kelly’s press confab was that freshman running back KV Russell has been moved to corner back.
Rest was just the usual but obviously the QB situation is the major major problem that has to be resolved fast. Regarding this offense I continue to be mystified by how difficult is for the QB”s to get it–something definitely wrong here and I am hopeful that Chuck Martin can get the breakthrough that Kelly hasn’t been able to do. Whatever it is–it’s just keeping these guys from just playing and too much time thinking. This is college football and we don’t have 4 years for the qb’s to learn the system.
The one thing I definitely would do this year is get Kiel on the field as much as possible–hell I’d even be tempted to start him against Navy. Perfect opponent for a freshman. Of course the defense must shut Navy down and I do not think that will be easy. Many think this game an automatic win for ND but I have a feeling this will be a tough game and look out for injuries.
Now we can just sit back and get to watch the players stretch exercise for the next 4 weeks.
