Let me tell you right now...this may sting a bit,
but if I don't get this outta my system, I may
cut my own ear off in frustration!
This game...this scheme..this COMPLETE
pooch screw that we laid on the field
in Pittsburgh...is exactly what would NOT
be happening if we had all
the right pieces!
I'm not here to make any excuses for this game!
Throw Tuitt out for nothing?... F-U it's Pitt!
Turn the ball over three times?... F-U it's Pitt!
Play with absolutely no emotion?... F-U it's PITT!!!!
Now...let's assign some blame!
Your Honor I'd like to call Coach Chuck Martin
to the stand....
What in the Hell was that last night?
What in the Hell was that last night?
First things first...You do realize we are playing with a
skeleton crew on defense...We are stopping NO ONE!
So slowing the game down and pounding the
ball to protect this defense at
it's most vulnerable state??
That never crossed you're mind?...no?
So you decide that with the absence of what?...6 starters
on our defense, and losing our 1st round Daft pick
D lineman...that trying to sling the ball
around on a team that ANYONE has rushed
on in the past was a great idea?
No...let's not run the ball at all in the second half?
No..let's reward the ONLY REAL running back
on the team, that broke the freshman rushing record
THE WEEK BEFORE with what,
FOUR touches the ENTIRE GAME?
Really?...That made sense to you?
I mean I know it's Pitt, and they are 63rd in the country
vs the rush....so that should be intimidating!
At one point I was expecting to see Weis's big ass
burping his way though a press conference
after this debacle!
Coach Brian Kelly, do you swear to tell the
truth, the whole truth and nothing
but the truth?
What in the world?...Take control brother!
Look...this is year four, and if a player is just
not progressing...then you gotta get him
outta there, regardless of the "C" on his uniform!
We have Defensive secondary running around like
fairy tale characters!
If it's not a players night...then SIT THEM DOWN!
Let's get some new blood flowing!
You can't tell me, that at WORST, these kids
wouldn't at least TACKLE the player when
they have one running at them!
I hope Coach Kelly takes a HUGE long
look in the mirror and says..
"WOW...That was fu#king embarrassing!"
With our 3rd string we should beat Pitt by 20!
Look...I'm not looking to "NEG" you out...but
this season is what this season is....we got caught
with our pants down!
We were a motor-cross racer without the proper
spare tires on the truck!
This is Notre Dame's offense!
Got a great engine...speed and is full of horsepower.
But the front wheel is Tommy Rees....God love Tommy,
I'll never fault a kid for giving 100%, he is just
limited...he's a great kid, and in a game
when everything is clicking...he's more than
enough to win...
But in a game when we need a QB to put the team on
his back and lead....to make something from nothing.
In a game where we are needing the offense to bail out
the defense...Tommy is a square wheel on a dirt bike!
It may roll clumsily here to there,
but it's never gonna be smooth enough
to win a race!
The quarterback at Notre Dame affects both sides of the ball
when you run a Brian Kelly type system.
Why was our D so dominant last year...The offense had long
sustained drives...Keeping the defense fresh and ready!
By the time our 65 yard, 11 play 5 min drive was
over...the D was rested and ready to attack!
When we had a 3rd and 4....if no one was open, Golson
would take off and get the first..When the pocket collapsed, Golson
would rush and gouge the defense for 15!
When the play would break down, Golson would scramble and
someone would get behind a defender and he had the arm
to make them pay!
Trust me my IRISH family....the darkest hours often
produce the greatest light!
We have 3 more games....then we roll into spring
ball with a commander at the helm of this
And mentored by the best QB coach in the country!
The missing piece is returning...time to make the picture!
GO IRISH & GOD BLESS
