Blanton, Fleming, & Kuntz Among Few Bright Spots

November 29, 2008Comments (10)

While tonight’s game will go down as one of the more embarassing of the Weis Era, a few young and one old defender showed some heart and played really good games despite the lopsided loss.  Robert Blanton, Darius Fleming, and Pat Kuntz played their hearts out as far as I could tell and did what […]

Notre Dame suffered a humbling 38-3 loss at the hands of USC Saturday night.  Aside from the beating on the scoreboard, the Irish suffered a couple of key injuries along the way.

Irish Held Under 100 Yards

Saturday night’s loss to USC had very few highlights for the Irish.  Instead the game was highlighted by offensive ineptitude like we haven’t seen for a while.  Even though the Irish got on the scoreboard Saturday night, unlike they did in Boston three weeks ago, the Irish offense could barely move the ball. Notre Dame […]

Notre Dame @ USC – No Mas

I think the quarter by quarter notes are going to end here because there isn’t going to be much positive I can say about this game.  This game is disappointing and disheartening in so many ways.  As I type this, we are still looking for our initial first down of the game.  Sigh.

Notre Dame @ USC – 2nd Quarter

November 29, 2008Comments (0)

Defense is playing with a ton of heart so far. Back to back great plays by Kuntz and Fleming put USC in a 3rd and 25 which they couldn’t do anything with. Fleming’s helmet popped off on first down put he kept playing. After a great series by the defense, the offense is looking lost […]

Notre Dame @ USC – 1st Quarter

November 29, 2008Comments (20)

After a nice first play, why would you run a slow developing pitch against one of the fastest defenses in the country?  That play call put Notre Dame in a bad third down situation when it should have been third and short.  If Notre Dame is going to run the ball at all tonight, it […]
