Not in the sense of something pleasant happening!
But in the sense of the best QB to play college football
for about 20 years!
So has LUCK been the deciding factor in the games
between the Cardinal/Tree..whatever the hell they are
and Notre Dame?
I mean let's face it...what is Stanford without Luck?
Game one...They faced the KILLERS at
San Jose State...which they won...but allowed
17 points and San Jose had more offensive yards!
Game two...Killed Duke..Which if this were
basketball might seem impressive!
Game three...By far their best W of the year
against an over-hyped USC team by 7!
Game four...Coming off a bye week
they laid an egg vs an up and coming (but
not for a few more seasons) Washington team!
Game five...They survived the
fighting Rich Rod's of Arizona!
Stanford gave up over 600 YARDS to them!
So is this life without LUCK?
33% on 3rd down?
105th in the country on offense?
55th in the country on defense?
This game is about the BIG NASTYS!
Was Miami a sign of things to come?...or was that
just what it was...a beating of a once great program
that has fallen on tough times?
Saturday we will find out!
Saturday is a test!
Navy?...Triple option...upset alert
Purdue?...Tough D line, explosive offense..upset alert
Sparty?...one of the best D's in the country
Bell is unstoppable....Too much for ND!
Michigan?...Denard is too explosive...upset alert
Miami?...Too much speed..best QB they have faced
all year...upset alert
Let's face it..until your standing at the end of the season
with the crystal ball..you will not get any RESPECT!
ONE GAME AT A TIME!
The talking heads are taking notice of the IRISH!
But not without some jabs!
Here is Desmond Howard on Mike and Mike
"Notre Dame is good at defense..not great!"
"Let's not get ahead of ourselves...they have
a lot of holes"
Holes?...like the ones your sniffing blow through?
Let 'em talk!...Let 'em hate!...Let 'em eat their words!
Desmond has picked against the IRISH
EVERY WEEK THIS YEAR!
And he'll pick against them this week!
O'fer Five BITCH!
We don't need their validation!
This week is about the NEXT STEP!
Mathis Farley & Russell along with
the ENTIRE Defense
will take their next step!
Daniels and the rest of the IRISH offense
take the next step!
And you and I as IRISH faithful take the next step
on the journey of what is already a very special season!
Can it be great?..Could the ending be legendary?
We will see!
But every game new play makers are emerging!
Confidence is growing!
And the ability to see light at the end of this tunnel?
Is getting brighter and brighter!
So...are we gonna take it?...Can we handle the hype?
Do we deserve the attention?
PLAY LIKE CHAMPIONS!
Every snap...every hit...every catch..every tackle!
Let 'em know they were in a fight!
Hit...hurt 'em...break their will!
WE ARE ND!
