Notre Dame 62 UMASS 27

Class Guy – UMASS coach Mark Whipple. Mark probably gave ND every possible offensive formation that they will see all year. Also every screen play, he really threw everything possible at them and UMASS had 20 points in the first half. The ND defense, early on looked awful. Almost like a sandlot team. While passing […]

UMass Week Predictions

When considering this game go back to the last 50 seconds of the GT game where GT easily scored 15 points. Then consider the easy 2 missed FG’s by GT. ND pass defense is really a concern in this game and similar to Virginia, UMASS can pass and comes in with a 6’6″ QB with […]

The Irish surprised everyone with a smothering of the feared “option” attack. Tip of the hat to VanGorder and staff for an attacking defense that seemed to come from everywhere. The DL played as hard as one can and Joe Schmidt was everywhere (10 tackles) as was Drue Tranquill until he was injured on a […]

Questioned about ILB Grace, we learn he is dinged up with ankle and hamstring issues. What the hell was he doing on the kickoff team? […]

Paul Johnson, the cerebral HC at Georgia Tech has been waiting years to come into ND Stadium with a real football team as opposed to when he was at Navy. Now he has first class athletes and they are not outweighed 50lbs per man. Think Navy on steroids and after watching the UVA game, where […]

What makes a prediction here difficult is that we don’t really know how bad Texas is. I think it’s worse than it appears, for after one game they just demoted their OC. So, we looked good last week but was that just ephemeral and now we go up against a so so team whose HC […]

Notre Dame 38 Texas 3

Finally, an Opening Game that ND looked like the teams of yore. Malik Zaire had a game that kids dream about, starting his first game in the Opener in ND Stadium – 19/22 313 passing yds, 3 TD’s including a 66 yarder to Will Fuller. Zaire looked confident, poised and accurate. Tarean Folston went down […]
