Podcast: Late Rally Provides Clarity and Direction for Notre Dame Football Heading Into the Bye

Notre Dame left Lane Stadium on Saturday with a 5-1 record thanks for another win over an ACC opponent (the Irish are 25-1 in the regular season against the ACC since 2017).  It was a wild rollercoaster of a ride, but when it was over, the Irish were on top and might just finally have some direction on offense for the rest of the year. 

  • More quarterback talk – what did we see and who should start the rest of the season
  • Clarity on the offensive line?
  • Reason for concern on the defense? 
  • How terrible are the ACC referees?
  • Was it or wasn’t it an improbable win for Notre Dame?
  • Logan Diggs is a smoooooooth operator

And Frank’s coworkers surprised him with a boat load of beer that helped fuel this podcast.

  1. If Coach Kelly and his assistants somehow manage to get this hodgepodge of players to 11-1 and a New Years bowl, he should get a Coach
    of the year award. None of you could do it, that’s for sure.

    1. Kellly gets millions of dollars a year to preside ovber the gong show he runs.
      But go ahead…..get out some tin foil, ribbon and carbdboard and make him a pretty medal.

      1. …meanwhile, fans’ “reward” for the eventuality of going 11-1 would be to watch Kelly’s blank stare as ND got destroyed and humiliated in a NY6 bowl. Again.
        So, fingers crossed!

  2. There are always a few teams so blesed to have muliple great young QBs that they might lose one to transfer. It happens, and the team lives with that fate.

    But there aren’t many teams with so unremarkable a group to choose from, yet still run a very real risk of losing yet another one of theirs….without even having even chosen a QB1 at the halfway mark of the season!

    This is “grab bag Kelly”, at his absolute essence.
