Notre Dame Football

Notre Dame’s going to have its share of issues tackling the long term.

Now what transpires? How is Notre Dame intended to be able to travel to the Big House following Saturday night time and defeat Michigan?

Quarterback controversy? Rees threw for 296 yards (24 of 32), but was intercepted twice - once inside the South Florida five. While the sophomore lacked consistency, Crist, a senior, was a whole lot worse (seven of fifteen, 95 yards), tossing a choose in the conclude zone from the Bulls’ ten.

A preseason worthy of of constructing toward the anointing of Crist as the starter was ruled null and void ahead of the initial lightning bolt flashed. A lot of rhetoric. Tiny production. Too a lot of miscues.

How can an Irish offense appear like a hot knife by way of butter for its first six snaps - traveling 78 yards - then curl up and die after Jonas Gray’s fumble is returned 96 yards for a touchdown by Kayvon Webster?

It’s named psychological toughness.

That problem was intended to have been solved for the duration of the win streak last period. The swagger was supposed to have returned. The BCS was meant to have been in sight, if not a practical objective.

One clunker has changed all that.

“We’ve been down this street prior to,” said Kelly, who possibly still has the map useful in his glove compartment.

It is a rocky thoroughfare. Tons of twists and turns. Constantly underneath construction.

“The disappointing issue is that we assumed likely into a calendar year wherever we had some encounter, that we would not have to go through this,” Kelly stated. “But, it seems to be like we’re likely to have to make positive our players are comprehending what it requires to win football games.”

Ugh. Back again to square one.

That was the approach last period. Lessons like Michigan, Michigan State and Tulsa ended up meant to have been the fodder for the turnaround. All that was wasted. Retention doesn’t appear to be the program’s powerful suit.

Following week’s a whole lot about survival now.
