    Re: The Notre Dame Defense!

    Shouldn't you be worrying less seeing as how every "great" team they beat got beat badly in bowl games?

    The Notre Dame Defense!

    I just keep looking at:

    Purdue 20-17
    Michigan 13-6
    BYU 17-14
    Pitt 29-26 OT
    Stanford 20-13 OT
    USC 22-13
    Oklahoma tied @ 13 with just over 5 minutes left in the game.

    Yes they do have a good defense but their offense has been dreadfully weak against defenses far inferior to ours. I am confident we will find chinks in their "invincible" defense (if you hear ESPN talk) and their offense will struggle to crack 250 yards TO against us.

    Re: The Notre Dame Defense!

    Only thing I can Hang my hat on is that some of these bowl outcomes have been mind-blowing. Vegas clearly agrees that ND's offense is dreadful, and I have a sinking feeling that Bama is gonna score two quick TDs. NDs Front 7 is solid, but Secondary is young. Im guessing it may be exploited, although, I'm not the biggest McCarron fan---but I'm guessing you, as a fan base, get tired of hearing that.

    If anyone cares about ND's scheme, heres a link (also a brief mention of Saban): http://www.onefootdown.com/2012/8/25...crease-defense

    Playing us might have done more to prepare the Tide for ND than anything else could. Saban will not lose this game with that long to prepare. This is not going to be close - 21 at least. RTR.

    I am not sure about winning by 21, but I do agree our loss to aTm helped prepare us for the game.

    I guess I was sort of speaking from an NFL perspective. He does everything really well, nothing he does ever 'wows' me. He has good size and looks fluid in the pocket so Im guessing he will be a 1st or 2nd round pick depending on how next season goes.

    But dont get me wrong, I'd take him on my team any day of the weak. Regarding Monday's game, I fear the running attack and the Bama D more than McCarron. I dont watch Bama week in and week out so I'm prob way off base. I dont know.

    I understand you are worried, but worrying isn't going to help us.. we need to be positive.. and support our team win or lose.. IF we continue to worry, that's giving ND an edge over us.. ND is talking hype.. and we're just forcused on little things that will help us win the game. SO RELAX and enjoy the game.
    We are champions. We can prove it! *counting 15 championships*

    That sounds sort of contradictory to me. If you haven't seen any "wow" moments, you haven't watched him enough. He's just a typical pro-type QB, doing his job - well...

    Not worried about this game. I was more worried about LSU and Texas A&M. If the team plays like they know how to, we will win by 14 or more.

    I'm not going to be cocky, but I will say that the team ND barely beat in OT just got steamrolled by Ole Miss. Take that for what it's worth.
