    How come none of these "experts" mentioned Bama's and ND's common opponent Michigan. Bama won 42-14 while ND won 13-6, Blue turned the ball over 6 times and the Iris only managed to beat them by 7 points.

    I think this is exactly what we decided to do. We decided to see if we could just make one 1st after another running, until they were baited in. It happened that the first deep ball was the dagger to the heart, but that was the pattern we'd set up and I'd not be surprised to see it against ND, if we have running success...

    Notre Dame is in an interesting situation because from what I've seen and how their fans talk, they've been able to stop the run without completely committing a safety into run support. They may cheat the safety a little but they really believe in their front seven's ability to fill the gaps and clean up the run. The tale of the game is kind of simple for our offense: if they can in fact contain the ground attack well enough without safety support, we're going to struggle. I think we could still win but it would be hard fought.


    We'll know early on what their gameplan will be. I get the feeling they are going to come out with something like a bear front look against 2-TE regardless of this talk of this talk about stopping the run with seven. If they don't, we need to run right at them.

    I need to watch the ND vs MSU game and see how they stopped Leveon Bell and the Sparty run game.

    I hope we put them to a decision quickly on how to defend us by mixing a power run game with a couple of play action high-reward deep shots early on...

    MSU wasn't as good as they've been in the past. With no passing game it was easy for them to key in and stop him.
