    Re: Was Deon Belue pulled in the second half

    He'll get much better, but agree with others that his instincts and ability to turn and find the ball need fine tuning. He's gotten picked on a lot this year.

    i have seen notre dame play several times and gholson is very underrated...he definitely has a strong arm and is very mature and patient in the pocket. saban will have us ready for him though.

    Much bigger arm than Murray. The ball is not in the air very long.

    Re: Was Deon Belue pulled in the second half

    Belue never came off the field.

    Geno Smith was playing the Star safety position in nickel and dime sets.

    Belue's biggest problem is one he can't fix -- size. He is tiny. I'm kind of surprised he tackles as well as he does given his size. The technique will get better -- our coaches thought he had the potential to be a one-and-done guy at one point -- but the size is what it is.

    Deion Belue is young and inexperienced. He will improve. As someone pointed out, Milliner was awful in his 2010 campaign. Mark Barron was suspect on numerous occasions that season as well. I'm more concerned with how often Robert Lester, a Senior, has been out of place this season.

    Everett Golson makes some horrible decisions. Look for him to throw several interceptions against the Tide.

    11Tds - 5INTs, passer rating of 131.8 which is 64th in the nation.
    Come on man, this guy doesn't compare to Murry at all.
    Why didn't he light up USCw with their bad defense if he's so good?

    Well put. This National Title will not even be competitive. This year's Notre Dame squad is the worst team since '98 Tennessee to reach the national title, in my opinion.

    Is Geno playing Vinnie's spot in the nickle?
