Re: Notre Dame Football - A New Hope

Did anyone checkto see if Tarean Folston was wearing Dexter Williams' number? I don't recall DW carrying a pile of Trees before.

For all the negative stuff we get about Kelly every year here we are again in October with highly relevant games ahead.

Re: Notre Dame Football - A New Hope

the beginning of the season felt like 2012, barely beating 3 teams in a row

but we've just given the business to three opponents in a row, and this defense seems to get stronger as the games wear on

this team is for real, for real...hopefully our DL stays healthy this year.

lol lloyd, we've had 8 years of mediocrity with only mere flashes here and there of being a great team under brian kelly. i think it is highly, highly unlikely that BK magically figured it out all this year. and if you need evidence of that, look no further than our debacle of a special teams unit.

what has changed is Clark Lea as DC and Chip Long calling plays for a very good QB. If Book was able to hit a couple more of those long passes he missed, we could've beaten VaTech by 30+.

Re: Notre Dame Football - A New Hope

I remember 2012 as going up one score early and then trying to run out the clock, rinse wash repeat. It didn't seem to matter if the opp was a BCS bowl team or an also ran.

He puts together a competitive season every couple of years. The limitations he works with relative to the teams he's trying to compete with haven't magically gone away. I don't personally understand the desire to constantly look at the glass half empty exhibited by some on here. The blood is on the early pages of this thread stretching back over a decade ago. If you'd offered me the 2012, 2015, 2017 seasons back in 2007 - 2009 we'd all have taken it gleefully.

And here we are again competing for a national championship as the evenings darken. It's a great thing!

Re: Notre Dame Football - A New Hope

Phew! The Pitt game in 2012 was even worse, if that’s any consolation. Survive and and move forward, if we win out the nature of the wins won’t matter.

Re: Notre Dame Football - A New Hope

Again, lol Kelly for calling pass on 4th and 1 to put the game away.

I’m convinced nothing good happens when you play Pitt. Even the Ws feel like Ls.

Re: Notre Dame Football - A New Hope

Penalty on the punt

Love grabs for PI on a hardly catchable 3rd down heave

Book slides to avoid a game clinching first down

ND opts for a pass instead of a game clinching sneak

did I omit any of our mental errors?

Re: Notre Dame Football - A New Hope

its been pointed out that the 4th down call was probably RPO

maybe needs to be coached that Run should be your play 90% of the time there, and pass only if you see something completely stupid from the defense

I believe the rb ran through the A gap untouched.
