This week we previewed the Purdue game by talking about whether or not the Irish will play to the potential we all saw in the preseason or if the team we saw the last two weeks is just the team we will see for the course of the 2021 season.
- How much, if any, improvement can we expect from the OL?
- How much is Jack Coan contributing to the pass protection issues?
- Can Notre Dame cut down on the big plays this weekend?
- Does anyone actually care about the stupid Purdue drum?
- How much will we see Tyler Buchner?
- What does the addition of Jordan Botelho do for the Notre Dame defense?

I changed it up this week and went with a stout. If it works, it looks like it will be an early Stout season. The 10.2% ABV stout from a collaboration between Twin Elephant and 4 City breweries in NJ was dangerously good.

EJS JC is a.turtle…just like Ron Pawlus
was. But JC is a great passer and that
Is fine for the pros.
BGC 77. 82
Forget the result. The mere fact that there is this much hand-wringing and angst…vs Purdue!…. speaks volumes.
ND is not Top 10 team.
Masochist’s Lives Matter!
If Notredame doesn’t win this game by 2 or 3 touchdowns or more and limit the big plays have better tackling andfundamentals on defense and gin the ball a lo th better I see a few losses on this schedule. If we see vast improvements may e theres hope .
I can’t recall any sack to date this year that I would blame on Jack Coan. The offensive line has been just horrible, the worst I can remember over 50+ years of watching Notre Dame football. Tyler Buchner’s running ability really gave ND a shot in the arm, in part, because Toledo didn’t expect it and wasn’t prepared for it. They should continue using Tyler as a relief pitcher, with Jack as the starter.
