Is there any way ABC can run more commercials? Seriously, just show commercials and leave 15 minutes and just give us highlights of the game.
Notre Dame just doesn’t know how to demolish weaker teams and this hurts 2 ways–1- ranking in polls and 2- not getting the backups any serious experience. It, right now hurts Manti in the Heisman race–tough enough as a defensive player and even with 6 picks if he had a few td’s as the result it would help his cause. Needs unbelievable next 2 games.
We have 2 games left and we will need blowouts against Wake and USC to have any hope of playing for the championship. And we have to get it THIS year–we lose too many seniors for 2013 to be the year.
Consider Defense–we lose Te’o, Kap Moore, Zeke Motta,Kona Schwenke probably Slaughter and the possibility of Louis Nix declaring early–could also lose Calabrese and Fox although I think they return.
Offense–Line–Golic and Cave definitely, Zack Martin ans Chris Watt possibly. That leaves only 1 starting lineman returning and the backups have no experience. Riddick gone and I think Wood goes also. Eifert gone and a handful of others who have had a lot of experience–that’s why it has to be this year.
It is just too damn hard to get this close. We have to roll the next 2 games and just hope KSU or Oregon lose a game.
Getting back to the BC game–ho-hum for all 4 quarters–the ND players just going thru the motions and with Wake at 5-5 probably a similar outing. Then USC–how the hell do we outscore them–Barkley to Lee all day.. ND just has to get some real fire–that’s just 2– 60 minute opportunities for a chance of a lifetime.
