You're Welcome America!

Hindsight...it can be a real BIT#H!...

In every persons past there was a moment...a decision
that will forever HAUNT them.  

Garth Brooks put it best in one of his songs,
"Sometimes I thank God...for UNANSWERED
prayers..."

This is what it is, most of the time...but sometimes the 
soap opera that is college football, has some bitter sweet
"I told ya so" moments...here are some of my favorites!

Now...for all you tree hugging..."they are only kids
at age 17 or 18.." 

If they can do this at 17 or 18...Then..
They can make a decision and keep that commitment!
So save your whining for the wussies!

NUMBER 1:
Aaron Lynch
My favorite part of this was the complete 
EXPLOSION that happened upon his leaving of the 
program!
"Notre Dame lost it's best defensive player!"
Really?...
Lynch was one of those kids that the grass not only 
looked greener...but just easier!

He has to be COMPLETELY kicking himself in his own
a$$ right now!

NUMBER 2:
Ronald Darby
Who drank the Florida State koolaid and it 
led him to a 14 tackle season with ZERO picks!

Imagine what the coaching staff could've done for him, 
when they made 3 of our defensive secondary players 
that were converted offensive players look like 
All Americans!...wait..one was an All American!

NUMBER 3:
Chris Martin
Where do I start....I really thought this kid 
was destined to be HUGE in college football!
Little did I know it would be for Drama and not
pass rushing...I think he may have more upside
than Lynch...but fell into bad advice!
I ran into him not to long ago...fresh off being 
committed to Notre Dame...then Cal...then
Florida..then Colorado...and now Kansas!
All he said to me was,
"I should have never left ND"

The list goes on and on...but they will forever be 
etched into our minds as the "one the got away"
But remember for every Anthony Barr there are
several...

Tee Sheppard
Deontay Greenberry
Justin Trattou
Shaq Evans
Omar Hunter


This is the beauty of Stephon Tuitt and Louis Nix!
  
Nix committed when we had NO COACH, and is now 
coming back after receiving a first round draft grade!

I just watched a re-cap of the entire season and it brought 
tears to my eyes seeing Stephon Tuitt, so choked up with 
emotion after the USC win that he could barley say...
"We're going to the National Championship!"

This was the promise that was made by Coach Brian Kelly 
and his staff...

He told recruits.."We are here to play for the 
National Championship!"

He told recruits..."If you are the best man...you will play!"

He told recruits..."I'm gonna educate you...mentor you and 
develop your talent!"

And to the fans...he said..."I'm the right guy for this job!"

And you know what....HE WAS!

He did EXACTLY what was expected of him and 
in a timely manner!

He fixed the culture...the work ethic and the 
performance!


It's funny...I think Garth's song was  right when we 
considered Meyer and Stoops!

You DO need to thank God for 
Un-answered prayers!

Home Depot 2x Coach of the Year
AP Coach of the Year
Eddie Robinson Coach of the Year

BRIAN KELLY
Thanks Coach!

GOD BLESS and GO IRISH!

Are we being fooled?....

As with all aspects of our daily world the only
constant is "change".

Now to see change coming, you must embrace research!

Research the "weather forecast" for clothing choices
or vacation destinations!

Research "reviews" for your choice in movie options!

Research "company financials" for stock purchases!

And...when the topic of College Football comes around?
ALWAYS....ALWAYS research the team and what 
Vegas has up their sleeve...Cause if you think that 
Vegas ALWAYS favors the team they think is gonna 
win...then you have no idea how much Casinos cost!


I think we might have a bit of a "bait and switch" on 
our hands when it comes to the BCS National Championship!

Back in November when EVERYONE was telling me 
how UNBEATABLE K-State and the Ducks were
I kept preaching...YOU GOTTA DO RESEARCH!

I kept saying.."They will be exposed!"

Well...CBS Sports was listening!...November 6th 
this article was released and caused quite the up roar!

It was in essence a blind test of saying..
"Take your fandom out of the equation!...Look 
at this like these are 5 black and white teams!"

Well..unless you're an idiot...Your first choice
 was always 
C=Notre Dame
and second choice was 
E=Kansas State

Never would you choose team A or D unless you 
were picking with your heart and not your head!
A=Bama & D=Oregon

This was the ONLY way to get the fans in the 
city I live in to make an "educated" choice!

This I think, is what Vegas is BANKING ON!

Animal Planet did a story last year on the 
DUMBEST animals in the world!...

CHICKENS were number 1 on the list!
In fact, if a chicken is left in the rain and they look 
up into the rain, they are too dumb to look away 
and will drown!

But a 25 foot tall Chicken can still do damage!

Here's the issue...HUMANS were on the list also!
That's what Vegas banks on...you not thinking for yourself,
damages you and profits them!

So lets do a 
BLIND DAMEFAN TEST
and see if you're at the top end of dumb?
=Chicken
or at the top end of smart
=Researched Human

Now to be fair!...FAIR...We took the 
top 6 opponents of Notre Dame and Alabama 
for our study!

See...my thought, being WAY smarter than 
the average human, has always been that Bama, on 
paper, benefited TREMENDOUSLY from
W.Kentucky-Florida Atlantic-W.Carolina
Arkansas-Auburn
5 games that were almost all shutouts!
Bama scored 45 pts per game while only giving 
up 1.4 pts per game!
 That doesn't even count Ol'Miss & Mizzu and Tenn!

Now I know what your thinking..
"How did you get the 5th and 6th opponents for Bama without
picking D1 AA teams?" 
It was hard!

DEFENSE
TEAM A:
Points Per Game: 10.3 
Total Yards Per Game: 285
Run Yards Per Game: 89
Passing Yards Per Game: 196

TEAM B:
Points Per Game: 20.5
Total Yards Per Game: 332
Run Yards Per Game: 102
Passing Yards Per Game: 230

Analysis?...If you score 21 Poins on team B YOU WIN!
And vs their top 6 opponents?...almost all 6 did!

Now go research each team...and one allowed only 10.7 points per game
ALL YEAR...vs their tough games..and vs their less tough games!
YOU DON'T SCORE MORE THAN THAT PERIOD!
They don't care WHO you are!
But team B?...cant' say that!


So....Who has the better Defense? ______

And when you look at the numbers...the REAL numbers
Team A is not just better...but MUCH BETTER!

Points Per game:10.2 points less per game!
Total Yards Per Game: 47 yards less per game!
Run Yards Per Game: 13 yards less per game!
Passing Yards Per Game: 34 yards less per game!

Now...for fun...Here is:

TEAM C:
Points Per Game: 18.8
Total Yards Per Game: 329
Run Yards Per Game: 155
Passing Yards Per Game: 208

Oh..and Team C's top 6 opponents record was 59-15 
with a stronger Strength of Schedule than A or B!

TAKE A SECOND TO STUDY THIS!

TEAM A=NOTRE DAME
TEAM B=ALABAMA
TEAM C ready?=MICHIGAN STATE

In my opinion...Bama might be the 3rd toughest Defense
we've faced ALL SEASON!

Behind Sparty and The Cardinal!

This game is not a shoe in...it's not un-winnable!

It just is what it is....a good game vs a good opponent
that in my opinion we are just slightly better than!

So I feel the IRISH will expose the Sheep 
wearing the wolves clothing!

As long as we don't lay an egg like we're a chicken!




 Even Nuns THOUSANDS of miles away know!

Big Shout out to my boy 
ANDREW METTLE
for the research!
AND...for all you haters!....METTLE is a 
Michigan Fan...so he doesn't have a dog in this fight!
But he can pull the ladies!
His prediction....ND by 10!


Merry Christmas
GO IRISH & GOD BLESS!

Have you noticed the "TIDE" turning?....

Changing our mind is a God given right...it happens
all the time...but sometimes it happens for an agenda!

This is what I've been seeing lately...have you?

Durning the season I'm always amazed at how un-informed 
the analysts on ESPN are.

Not just un-informed but down right WRONG!

This season in almost every game we were 
"about to be exposed!"

Then the next week came, and that team was 
suddenly "over rated". 

But it seems lately...with the additional time on their
hands...they've managed to watch some tape!
Guy's like this idiot!

Weeks before the seasons end...we would be 7th in the 
SEC...now?..."ND will keep this game close!"

What changed Pollack?....The fact that Georgia's 
rush defense is pathetic and still almost beat Bama?


Heck...Trevor Matich said "It just takes ND doing 
what they've done all year...not make mistakes!"

Of course there is Vegas...just daring the Alabama nation 
to take that 9 1/2 point worm at the end of that 
ZILLION dollar hook!

Gonna be A TON of trailers repossessed if they do!

Heck..they did the same thing with Oklahoma for 11 1/2!
How much did that make them?
MILLIONS!

This game will be determined by inches!

This game will be determined by turnovers!

This game will be determined by who's been tested!
I know we have!

I know our boy's have been tested...respect neglected,
and never selected!

So there is A LOT of angst sitting in the Notre Dame locker room!

There is A LOT of "told ya's!" waiting to be handed out!

This game is not about "LUCK" this game is about
 what was "EARNED"...and what was earned is 
a shot at the title!


But you know what?...That's fine!
I'd rather they ALL pick us to be beat by 50 points!

That's what has made this season so great... REDEMPTION!

The chance to talk all that trash to your buddy at work, the 
guy at the gas station with the worn out Trojan hat, or
that family member who married into the family and 
suddenly is a HUGE SEC fan!

The entire world will be watching as the IRISH do, 
what weeks ago, most thought was impossible!

But not everyone thought the TIDE was the shoe in...

The October 22nd Sports Illustrated.

Notice the top right hand corner?

The "Case for Notre Dame"

-"The Irish would have a chance to keep 
the score low, then sneak out a win on a 
turnover, of which they have forced 15 so far"

-"Notre Dame is athletic enough up front to stuff
the run and generate a formidable pass rush on McCarron
without having to rely heavily on the blitz."

Of course all of the SEC thought SI was smoking 
what the cover boy had in his apartment, but the 
educated reader...saw more!

Remember!...this article was written BEFORE
the Irish CRUSHED Oklahoma!

Now the benefits of this are?
MONSTERS!

Imagine the backfield next season!
GA III
WILL MAHONE
AMIR CARLISLE
and?...BRYANT!

All that running behind the best O line class 
in the country and only losing 2 starters from the 
previous years line!

GOOD LORD!

And the staff is FAR from done!

The next two weeks, from what I'm hearing, could take 
this class from GREAT to OH SH@T!..real fast!

Oh..and the Travel Channel has contacted us in hopes
of cross promoting the upcoming SUPER FAN

SPORTS-BAR 101...Sometimes you gotta educate!

The old saying that it's better to keep your mouth 
shut and let people "assume" your stupid...
Then to open your mouth and REMOVE all doubt!
Was never taught to idiots!

Okay...let me set the scene for ya, it's five o'clock
on a Thursday in one of the WORST sports
cities on the planet.  I'm at a "wing joint"
not known for their "scholar" patrons...but
well known for their grilled chicken salad!

So there I was...reviewing contract status via
the Ipad when two guys came in and sat at the 
two open stools to my left....the Bud Lights started
getting tossed back...and out flew the comments!

"Notre Dame is gonna get KILLED!"

"Bama is tested!"

"Notre Dame's Defense is NO WHERE as 
good at Bama's!"

And the one that broke my silence?...

"Notre Dame has played NO ONE!"

I was a bit confused!

So I decided to be like an "apostle" of God's team to do 
some educating.

ME-"Excuse me fellas...I can't help but hear your football discussion!"
"Mind if I ask how you came upon your conclusions?"

IDIOT-"Well...what do you mean?..."

ME-"It's just you two seem like highly educated people, just 
wondered...Mind if I ask a few questions?"

IDIOT-"Shoot!"

Here is our interaction...

1. Who had a tougher schedule?
"BAMA!"
NOPE!
Bama 35th ND 30th

2. Who had more wins vs top 30 teams?
"BAMA!"
NOPE!
ND!

3. Who's got a better Offense?
"BAMA's is WAY BETTER!"
NOPE!
Bama's offense is 40th in the country in total O
Notre Dame is 49th in the country in total O
.57 yards per play separate the 2!

4. Who has the better Defense?
"BAMA's D destroys people!"
NOPE-ND!
Bama has allowed almost TWICE as many
Touchdowns as Notre Dame!

5. Who has the coaching advantage?
"BAMA!"
Really?...Saban is a STUD!
But Kelly is the only 2 time winner of the 
Home Depot Coach of the year!
I think we are good!

6. How has Bama done in their "big" games?
"What do you mean?...they killed people!"
Really?

Vs LSU 
Bama gave up:
73% comp. ratio
435 yards of offense!
140 yards rushing!
2 turnovers!


Vs A&M 
Bama gave up:
75% comp. ratio 
418 yards of offense!
165 yards rushing!
3 turnovers!

Vs Georgia 
(the 79th ranked rush D!)
Bama gave up:
61% comp ratio
Almost 400 yards offense!
113 yards rushing!
2 turnovers!

So he stopped...drank the last swig in his 
beer looked at me and said..."Oh..."

I responded with "So do you REALLY think
Notre Dame is gonna get killed?"

His response..."Yep!"..LOL!...

So I drew this on a napkin and asked if 
math was his strong point?
"Is this your math?"
CONVERSATION OVER!

What Bama has shown the "educated" fan is VS "inferior"
teams...they are INCREDIBLE!

Vs teams with same "level" talent?
NOT SO MUCH!

We are not playing the AURA of BAMA!

We are playing 2012 Bama team!

There is a HUGE difference!

They have struggled and BARELY won the 3 
toughest games they've played this season!

This is what we are up against as Notre Dame fans!

It's the media that has already given Saban the 
Crystal Ball..and insecure fans of other teams
that have ALWAYS had fear of the mighty 
SEC!

Well...All I can say is there is A LOT of people
praying to whoever they can for a Notre Dame loss!..


EMBRACE THE HATE!

GO IRISH & GOD BLESS

Dawg or Elephant?.... Does it really matter?...

Life is funny sometimes, your friends, significant other, 
co-workers...everybody has an OPINION!

Everybody "thinks" they know!

But in life the only constant is change, and MAN
have we seen that first hand the past 12 weeks!

Every week it changes!

Well ________ was over rated...just wait till they 
play________!


From:
NO WAY they survive this schedule!
To:
WHO HAVE THEY BEAT?

This is the best passing game they will face!...NO!
Wait...THIS is the best passing game...NO!
Wait...Now THIS really is the best passing team!...

Well now ND is in trouble...cause this team is PHYSICAL!
Now...we think this team was...not as physical
as we might have thought...but just wait!

Every week they tell us how we can't...every week we 
show 'em how we can!

Yet we are still...what?..over rated?

We've done what?...not shown you anything?

This to me is all laughable!

What do we have to do?...We scheduled what NO ONE 
was willing to schedule...

We beat WHO NO ONE thought we could beat!

We did WHAT NO ONE thought could be done!

And now?....No respect!

That's fine!....just wait and see bi@ches!

But let's look at what the "respectable" have done?

Let's start with
Now you know...I know...Saban knows...Kelly knows!
This is only an even match up when it comes 
to football!

They over-sign!
They cut players!
They graduate NO ONE!
They like to play in the gray...so to speak!
JUCO-JUCO-JUCO

So what has that accomplished?

11-1
The INCREDIBLY
UGLY:
Western Kentucky?
Florida Atlantic?
West Carolina?
Missouri? 

The REALLY
UGLY:
Ol'Miss?
Auburn?
Arkansas?
Tennessee?

The 
RESPECTABLE:
LSU? 
Almost lost won by 4!
Michigan?
They beat themselves with hype!
Texas A&M?
LOSS!

So why the crowning?

They have played 5 teams with winning records!
2 of those had 10 wins..they lost to 1 of them!
1 team went 6-6 and EVERYBODY else was under .500!

So explain to me...why we can't beat Bama?

Next...
The fighting ginger of the Dawgs!

This resume is even weaker if you can believe that!

Now Georgia has become the "ESPN media darling!" for 
some reason the past 2 weeks?

Why?...I'm still trying to figure that one out!

Still NOBODY can blow a game like Mark Richt!
(well maybe an intern for Petrino?..too soon?)
I've seen AMAZING games just completely botched 
by this guy!

But what has this highly "RESPECTED" 
team done?

PURE CRAP:
Buffalo?
Florida Atlantic?
Georgia Southern?
Kentucky? (29-24?)


(seeing a pattern here?)

POOP:
Missouri?
Tennessee? (51-44?)
Auburn?
Georgia Tech?
Ol Miss?
Vanderbilt?

RESPECTABLE:
Florida
(play that game 10 times and see what happens!)
South Carolina
MUD STOMPED!

Georgia has played 2 teams with more than 10 wins!
One they got killed by, the other is Florida!

They have one 8 win team and a couple 6-6's!

Then 6 teams that are UNDER .500!

Mix in some Sun Belt and MAC bottom feeders
and BAM!....you got NOTHING!

This team has done the mirror image of Bama?

This is my dilemma!

I can't understand why Notre Dame is not being 
treated like WORLD BEATERS compared to 
what I just discussed?

You have to remember one thing when you're in the 
position that ESPN and the media has put you in
Georgia and Bama...
BIG TREE...FALL HARD!


GO IRISH and GOD BLESS!

The higher the peak...the better chance of slipping!

Every great journey in life comes with obstacles.
Those obstacles can come in the form of:
Injuries,
Suspensions,
Doubt,
HATE,
Defections!
(Lynch...LOL!...omg!)

This has been our journey for the past 11 games.

We've ignored the chaos and embraced the journey at hand.

But now it has entered one of the MOST dangerous 
areas of any great journey....the PEAK!

We are 4 quarters away from what most of us have 
waited for almost two and a half decades for!
The journey my friends, is within grasp and now 
we have to ask ourselves...
Can we complete it?

What stands in our way?

THIS COLOSSAL DOUCHEBAG!
And his Southern "Cali" Trojans!

You know at the beginning of the season, every analyst basically 
chalked this game and Oklahoma up as losses for the Irish!

But...thanks to Jack Swarbrick...there's a new Sheriff in town 
and he's bringing the pride back to the IRISH NATION!

The Trojans are...and I DO NOT want to come off 
over confident in this...but these are NOT EVEN CLOSE to 
being the "Get my mama a condo!" Trojans of the 
Poodle Carroll era!

They are 7-4 and when you look at them...and really dissect 
this season you can see why!

Offense
(now these are with that poor bastard 
Matt Barkley who Kiffen cost MILLIONS 
for coming back and not going pro!) 
is 27th in the country!

DEFENSE
Not sure you can get numbers on them,
THEY'VE NOT BEEN SEEN FOR WEEKS!
Rush-49th
Pass-67th
Scoring-48th
Tackling-LAST

Not bad!...but!!! Who have they beat?

Hawaii
Who is 1-9 

Syracuse 
Who are 6-5 
Oh, and the Orange hung 30 on them!

Cal
Who is HORRIBLE and just fired their coach 
after a 3-9 campaign!

Utah 
Who is 4-7
But they hung 28 pts on USC!

Colorado 
Who is...ready?...1-10

Arizona State
Who is 5-5 

and...the BIG SIGNATURE WIN?...

Washington!
In a hard fought 24-14 victory!

Their wins are against teams with a combined record 
of 27-45!

Seven games that kinda make you...feel like...Well..
Unimpressed!
BIG TIME!

Now most people at this point would say,
"Every good team they've played they lost to!" 

And..that's not exactly true!...They figured out how to lose to 
bad teams also!

Losses:

Stanford
Yeah...the Stanford we beat...that was "overrated" 
until they beat Oregon!

Oregon
Yeah..the "quack attack" that I told you how 
to beat last week...and that's exactly how they got beat!

UCLA
Now... before you start tugging on UCLA's private
parts...remember..they lost to 3-9 Cal!

Now...on to the embarrassment!

ARIZONA?
The fighting Rich Rods!
Yeah...they lost to them!

So what do we have in store for the Condoms?
PAIN!

Good ol' fashion, beat you down till you can't respond 
PAIN!

This is not another day at the office for Notre Dame..this 
is VINDICATION!

This is JUSTIFICATION!

This is showing EVERYONE that we do belong, and 
we will prevail, and NOTHING will stop us 
until we have proven our journey to be one that,
WE determine the outcome of!

ESPN-COLIN-MAY-HERBSTRIET

You can talk...and talk...and talk...but we 
are a team of DESTINY!

I was at that Pitt game..when Cierre fumbled into the endzone,
I sat there and put my hands in my face...and thought...
"Here we go again!...This is where it all comes apart!"

And then....Then the ROAR of the crowd...as if 
Touchdown Jesus himself had pushed that kick right!

At that point...I knew...something was happening here!


I don't wanna talk BAMA...I don't wanna 
think Heisman!

All I care about is BEATING, and
BEATING BADLY ,the Trojans!


GOD BLESS and GO IRISH!

Have a GREAT THANKSGIVING!

Are there 2 sets of rules in college football?...

Life often teaches us lessons...from the time we are 
born till we die, we try and learn and observe.

One lesson we are taught is rules are rules!

There are not two set of rules for society.

You know what, that would be great...if it were true!

Because you and I know that it's not!

College football for example, some schools are colleges!

They educate, nurture and develop young people for life 
and at the end of the day they win football games!


THEN!...There are the others, the ones that take 
ANYONE regardless of:
Record
 (criminal)
Academics 
(can they read?)
Character 
(That's my mama's weed! or Juco)


For years ND has played by the rules, we dodge 
NO ONE...you line 'em up...we'll play 'em!

But now there seems to be 2 sets of rules again?

Schedule
(some schedule CUPCAKES and non BCS teams)

Some don't play in cold weather...EVER!
(reptiles like Gators never leave the sun! or condoms 
don't like cold!)

Degree?
(Some have a lower graduation rate than flipping 
a coin and guessing the side!)

BUT one rule that ALWAYS seemed to apply 
UNTIL THIS SEASON!

DEFENSE WINS
CHAMPIONSHIPS!
But Not Anymore!

Seems ALL OF A SUDDEN
that rule is different?
Huh?... Peculiar?

See now that ND has the best 
Defense in the country...
And has played a tougher schedule than 
any of the top 3 teams...
And is UNBEATEN...now we 
want a:
A circus act with a bunch of ducks?

Come on!...
Notre Dame has allowed 111 Points in 
10 GAMES!

Oregon allowed over 80 points in 2 GAMES!

I understand the HATE!...I understand the JEALOUSY,
but don't change the complexity of the 
ENTIRE game cause you thought ND would be 
7-3 right now!

Bottom line is we did everything right!

2 sets of rules?

Bama was allowed to come out flat vs Tex A&M 
because they were coming off an "emotional" game vs 
LSU?

But ND wasn't allowed, coming off of being one of only
5 teams IN FOURTEEN YEARS to beat
Oklahoma at home...we weren't allowed to let 
Pitt take us to OT?

Ohio State is allowed to let INDIANA to hang 50
on them?...Yeah we are talking football not basketball...

But ND holding Boston College to 6 and controlling 
the ENTIRE game is "struggling".

The SEC and Big 10 and Pac and Big 12 
are ALL allowed to schedule complete
JOKE games vs EVERY directional school that
exists and D1AA teams!

But ND is criticized for playing Navy every year 
which was agreed upon during WWII for thanks
for helping ND STAY IN BUSINESS!

I don't care WHO we play!
THEY BOTH HAVE HUGE HOLES!
K STATE?
Please....Notre Dame would ROLL the fighting...Whatever 
the hell they are?..what Cougars?...Panthers?...Calicos?...

It's gonna take more than a big QB who likes to run to beat 
the IRISH D!

OREGON?
The TOP ranked D's they've played?
Fresno State (37th) who scored 25 on them!
 and
 USC (40th) who hung over 50 on them!

So what are they gonna do vs one 
of the top 2 defenses in the country?

You wanna know how to beat the ducks?
RYTHUM!

Keep them out of rhythm and they can't score!

How?...Keep'em on the sidelines!

You bring in the top Defense in the country!
And one of the top Offenses in the country in 
time of possession...AND leads the country in 
drives over 6 minutes!

INFACT...Notre Dame 
time of possession by
  QUARTER:
1st quarter= 72nd
(teams throw EVERYTHING they can to 
try and jump out to a lead!)
2nd quarter=31st 
(we establish control and start to pull ahead)
3rd quarter=13th
(we are wearing you down with superior 
adjustments and conditioning!)
4th quarter=6th
(Your outta energy GAME OVER bit@h!)

They will get WORN OUT!
And
THEY WON'T GET INTO RYTHM!

DEAD DUCK!

Bottom line?
We aren't gonna play by your bull sh#t rules!

You wanna call the bakery and order cupcakes!...Fine!

Your just not allowed to do it if your ND!

So pony up cowards!...Talk your trash "experts"
We've been on "upset alert" for TEN WEEKS!

Your gonna HATE us right into a perfect season!

We got 2 left!

Wake!
Who I'm not even gonna bore you with especially 
when their only wins are:
Liberty
North Carolina 
(before they woke up Bernard!)
Army
Virginia
Boston College!

They have the 111th ranked Offense

A defense that is 98th vs the pass and 63rd on the run!

That game is DONE!

Then we got USC!
And that hating has ALREADY started!

Barkley....Woods...etc...
"The Notre Dame secondary is young!...it will get 
exposed!."
Just like Oklahoma?

Notre Dame ranks SECOND nationwide in yards 
per completion vs the pass!
NO BIG PLAYS!

So guess what happens if the ducks get de-feathered this 
weekend vs Stanford!.....ALL HELL BREAKS LOSE!

Cause they got NO CHOICE BUT TO PUT US NUBMER 2!

We beat USC...and it's ON vs K STATE!

NO MATTER HOW MUCH CRYING
THE SEC DOES!

So relax my brothers and sisters!...it's all coming together exactly 
the way we need it to!...and next season is gonna be even 
better!

GOD BLESS and GO IRISH!
