Notre Dame v. Michigan 2014 Highlights: Irish Shutout Wolverines

Wow.  I don’t have a voice left after screaming non stop from start to finish of Notre Dame’s beat down of Michigan on Saturday.  In the last meeting between the two schools, Notre Dame shut out Michigan for the first time ever to the tune of a 31-0 beating.  We’ll have plenty on the  game tomorrow, but for now, here are the glorious highlights.

    Toulmin, I see what you did there. It was an elegant homage to Van Gorder, the mere stating of his name clarifying your joy in his presence.

    Keep going toulmin. Excellence is never defined by mediocrity.

    Mike Mayock’s bringing up the Alabama game of two years ago near the end of Notre Dame’s drubbing of Michigan was uncalled for and churlish.

    REALLY COOL. In this thread Jake W sings the praises of
    Jarron Jones, and Michael the Archangel advocates Sheldon Day.

    Quibble among yourselves if you will, but something’s happening here, and what it means is exactly clear: Our defensive tackles are playing so well, that it is hard to tell which is the most impactful and which is having the better year.

    Now try this:

    Take the six frosh who have played on defense:

    Here is your task:

    Rank them in terms of which will be the most impactful when they are seniors in 2017, and rank them in terms of NFL potential when they come out in 2018.

    Enjoy the exercise!!

    Amazing to see this complete game by our Irish. Everett Golson is an even better QB then he was in 2012. Our D is ferocious. To see us completely stomp UM after all those lucky last minute wins they were getting against our D was so satisfying. Finally we expose their QB for what he truly is which is mediocre instead of making him look like a Heisman trophy candidate. I love our new turf new look just all around bad ass team we have this year. Now if we go in to Doak Campbell Stadium and pull out the W that will be incredible. ND is back baby!

    Probably my only concern was all the dropped balls. Golson played excellently. Guys like Hill and Tranquill stepped up which is very encouraging. There’s a laundry list of guys who had great games not the least of which was Carlisle. Really happy for him after last year’s tribulations. Farley may have had his best game at ND. One of the most satisfying games I ever saw ND play.

    The defense just looked so fast…Cody Riggs closing speed is unreal..jaylon smith runs like a saftey..a 235 lbs monster..and sheldon day played great, perfect 3 technique..and jarron jones stuffed the run all game..I’m trying to stay level headed, as we have all seen ND look good one week and flat the next….the speed of this D looked SEC esque…not quite the size

    LOL regarding your comments on Mayock, he can’t just play one side the entire time. I know that we are ND fans, but there are actually fans of other teams watching the game too. Let’s not be selfish here. They probably talk about ND 90% of the time, so I’m ok with them talking about the team were facing once in awhile.

    Glad that we play purdue next week so we can rest collinsworth if need be and then a bye and syracuse. Hoping this investigation crap will clear up soon. Would be nice to get Davaris Daniels back. Sick of watching these wr’s drop the ball, although I am impressed with Will Fuller.

    Everyone’s been pretty spot on, but I have to say Jarron Jones deserves more praise. He had a HUGE game and is going to be very instrumental in the defense’s success. The officiating was extraordinarily suspect (the spot on Robinson catch, which could have cost ND points, the “catch” by Koyack, the no-call on very obvious helmet-to-helmet hit on Trumbetti, and “illegal” hit on Gardner on the last play). And yes, Mike Mayock is extraordinarily difficult to listen to. Aside from the missing DBs of Michigan, his seemingly endless rant about the “tuck rule” and that it should have been an incomplete pass. Yeah well, the ball went backwards Mike, so an incomplete pass isn’t in the cards. Also, why was he even talking about an old NFL rule? As far as I know (I could be wrong), the tuck rule doesn’t apply in college. NBC’s hiring of anti-domers (former USC QB, former BC DB) as play-by-play guys is getting annoying.

    Other notes: I’m extremely annoyed that Hoke kept the starters in on that final drive. You’re down 5 scores and there’s less than a minute left. Someone’s going to get injured. Take your starters out.

      that helmet to helmet hit on Trumbetti should have resulted in the Michigan player being ejected.
