Notre Dame football insights...

The fighting Irish football has some interesting insights,in that,
One of its main players was not allowed to play in a bowl game ...reason?
Texting his parents while at a team dinner.
Mmm!
Seems kind of rash..doesn't it?
I can hear it now.."team rules.. no texting while eating during team dinner..you do not go to the bowl game."
Question:
What if Notre Dame had lost the bowl game?  The didn't.. but what if they had?
..and their star player was left behind in South Bend,IN
Because of texting to his parents while eating at the team dinner!
Not enough to keep a player from a bowl game? Or, a rule is a rule?

Your thoughts on this !!!!

WE ARE BACK IN THE RACE -NOTRE DAME

Well now, Notre Dame is going to a bowl game..they are bowl qualified with the win against Army..
The defence has come up big. The last three game only one touch down has been recorded against them.
Lets win big against USC... next week!

GO IRISH !!!

Notre Dame Football as I know it !

Notre Dame as I know it. November 13, 2010

This years Notre Dame football team has not, to say the least, been productive. Many point to fact that we have a new quarterback..And he needs to be broken in to coach Kellys new playing methods..and this takes time.
. To top that off ,as we all know, as first string quarterback he will not be back this year..because of an injury, then what?
Kelly brings in another so called back up quarterback Rees...in my opinion a very bad choice ..as Notre Dame has another well known (name brand) quarterback.
Named, Nate Montana , I seen him play at the Blue and Gold practice game held this spring ..quick, precise and has a strong arm. Plus he can run the ball very well.
To leave him on the bench is not good.. and not fair to the team or the fans.
...the other thing that this team (has) to do and that is STRIP that ball, it is not just a perhaps it's a good thing to do ..it's a MUST!
Create good things to happen , don't wait for them to happen or hope that they will happen ..place us in the drivers seat for once.
The Chicago Bears decided to do just that a few years ago ..stripping the ball got them to the Super Bowl.. Notre Dame needs something extra that just hasn't been there this season ..the added bonus of the defense creating points and making points on the score board ...So , Brian Kelly ...strip the ball, at EVERY OPPORTUNITY THAT YOU CAN.
THE REWARDS WILL BE A "W" ON YOUR LEDGER..NOT THE DREADED TALKED ABOUT "L"..THAT HAS BECOME SECOND NATURE TO OUR BELOVED NOTRE DAME FOOTBALL TEAM.

It's a New Day

What a difference a night makes.

Notre Dame used a slow-tempo, deliberate, Bo Ryan type offense to completely shut down UCONN's fast-paced attack in a 58-50 victory at the Purcell Pavilion Wednesday night. The Irish complemented the Big Ten-esque offense with a staunch defense, using the same formula that worked so well against Pittsburgh and Georgetown. A team that just two weeks ago was staring at a number 4 seed in the NIT is now looking at making the NCAA tournament.

The Irish have done it all without star Luke Harangody. They had to stop standing around and admiring his physical abilities once he got injured and start playing fundamental team basketball. Ironically, they have gotten away from Big East basketball and started doing the things we see out of Big Ten and SEC teams to win their games. Perhaps the Irish can set a new trend: defense does, in fact, win, even in the Big East.

The Irish resume has improved dramatically in that time, as well. They have improved from 6-8 against RPI top 100 teams to now being 9-8, have won 3 games over RPI top 50 teams, and have improved their RPI ranking from almost 80th up to now being 61st.

Notre Dame still has to contend with their lowly non-conference schedule, three bad losses, and a meager 2-6 record on the road. They next play Marquette Golden Eagles at Marquette, a very talented team that is likely a lock for the NCAA tournament. Notre Dame needs to either win at Marquette Saturday afternoon or win one, possibly two games at the Big East Tournament in New York City if they expect to find their way in the field of 65.
