Looks Like These Guys Like Their New Coach

I could be wrong, but it looks like the Irish players are liking their new coach.  Here’s some video from inside the Notre Dame locker room courtesy of Notre Dame All Access.

Hopefully this is just the first of many post game celebrations for Brian Kelly and Notre Dame.

    OK – LOOKS A LOT BETTER THAN LAST YEAR – REALLY CAN’T SEE 11-1 TOO MANY ROUGH SPOTS TO WORK OUT – YEA WE ALL AGREE CRIST NEEDS TO DEVELOP TOUCH ON HIS PASSES AND TIMING WITH HIS RECEIVERS – IF THAT COMES THINGS SHOULD BE GOOD – IF NOT – THE TEAM WILL BE VERY INCONSISTENT – AND YES THE SPREAD OFFENSE IS ENTERTAINING BUT TAKING TIME OFF THE CLOCK HELPS YOUR DEFENSE

    HAVE TO WAIT AND SEE AND HOPE KELLY CAN BRING IT TOGETHER – LOOKS LIKE HE GOING IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION

    Where are the other receivers? Goodman? Kamara? Toma? Walker? We need as many options as possible in the passing game beyond Floyd, TJ, Riddick, and the TEs.

    AGAIN — TAKE THE FREAKIN’ POINTS, BK. I’m surprised more people in the ND Nation and the media haven’t questioned the coach about not taking the easy 3 before the half. Had he done so, you’re looking at about a 44-yard FG attempt to win the game (very makable for Ruffer) instead of a “Hail Mary” at the end.

    Also, will someone, anyone, tell our QBs to throw the ball in the endzone in bounds to allow our athletic WRs to make a play!

      i was screaming at the television for the qb’s to throw the ball so someone can make a play!!! FU*#!!!!

      i hated going for it at the end of the half, but as someone else said, if bk thought dayne was out for the game it would have been the right call.

      if dayne stays in the whole game, we win 38-17. but alas, shit happens. this team could have folded but didn’t, i like the grit they showed.

      too many drops by the receivers. riddick had two drops against purdue, floyd dropped two against mich…drops are the result of a lack of concentration. we also need to get goodman more involved, hell, maybe he should be moved to back-up qb.

      when crist was in, he was a little sloppy. hit the checkdown!!!! there were at least 3 times, including the INT, where crist forced the ball. jimmy used to make the same mistake until last year. all told, crist is improving and maturing…does anyone know what the injury actually was?

      the d played good enough to win, even though denard embarrassed them. the offense put them in precarious positions time and time again. to only give up 7 points in the second half is an accomplishment. if you would have told me that michigan was going to punt it 10 times, i would have told u that would lead to a nd win…

      i was harsh on mayock, but he did a great job…hayden is still awful

      this is going to sound wrong, but this loss was a ‘good loss’ we learned a lot about our complete lack of depth at q. i don’t think this team, even with a win, deserves to be ranked. they need to bring their lunch pail and come to work, without any sense of entitlement. they are still young and not good enough to just show up and win games. losing early in the year can be a great motivator for the team and who knows, with a healthy crist we could run the table!

        I could not watch the game but listened on the radio, I still can’t reconcile getting gashed for 500 yards by a one man show. I thought Tenuta was the problem last year but could these guys on defense just be too damn slow?

    First, the entire 1st half without Crist took the wind out of the sales of the team. Way to get off the mat in the second half and regain the lead, however the defense needs to hold. You got to tip your hat to Robinson for his play, without him Michigan doesn’t score.
    Second, to many turnovers in the game to win. Need to stop throwing int’s and protect the football.
    Third and final the offense needs to stay on the field longer. They were again beat in time of possesion by over 10 minutes. Chasing that QB around for 35 minutes will result in a big play. I think if Crist plays the entire 1st qut it would have been a different story.
    I love the fight in this team and Crist coming back into the game. Fine tune some things on Defense and get Slaughter back on the field. I saw a couple of blown coverages by Zeke on touchdowns getting sucked into the back field.

    ND outscored Mich 24-7 with Crist in the game and Mich outscored ND 21-0 when he was out. This would have been a different outcome if Crist plays whole game. I think ND would have scored more points taking Mich out of their game and Robinson wouldn’t have looked like someone from a video game. He wouldn’t have had as many touches, but when the ND offense was 3 and out most of the 1st half, it just gave Robinson too many opportunities.

    I like Kelly for taking responsiblity for the play of the back-ups. He said he didn’t do a good job of preparing them and he should have some packages just for them.

    ND started 1-1 last year and got to 6-2 before the wheels fell off. I don’t see it happening with this team. They are disciplined, they are showing passion, and they will improve. The way the offense started the game was impressive and shows that Kelly can get this team ready to play.

    I believe this team will win 9-10 games this year providing Crist doesn’t get hurt. I also believe this team will not be as bad if he does. Kelly will develop some packages that Montana can run.

    At least the fight is back in Irish. The D played tough all game and they were hitting people HARD!Denard Robinson may be the fastest player in college football and I think the best player in college football(to bad he’s a sophmore).I don’t know about 11-1 but the defense plays with a toughness that hasn’t been at ND for a long time.Last year Robinson would have had an even bigger day and the d would have given up. The offense will get better every week with more reps.This is the first year with this offense. It will look better week after week.

    If Crist stays healthy the rest of the season, I truly believe this team has a shot at going 11-1. Denard Robinson is the real deal, and the defense did far better defending him than they would have last season. I am seeing so many positives with this team through two games. Losing is never good, but we BARELY lost. I hate hypotheticals, but am convinced we win by more than one score had Dayne not been injured. I truly think this team can be special this year, and that’s not being a homer.

    Now, about the game.

    Positives: This depleted defense is amazing. Unfortunately, the corners may be exposed. However, Diaco isn’t going to let them get burned. His front 7 will more than offset deficiencies at cornerback. And those deficiencies are being minimized by good hard work by the corners and safeties. No one was out of position.

    Teo played a better game yesterday. Calabrese played a great game. KPM played a great game. This defense will be feared again this year.

    The offense played tough and never quit. Allen had a great game. Wood had a decent game. Allen plays more like Hughes but with better moves.

    Negatives: With all the talk about the other QBs being developed, none looked sharp. Even Crist in critical situations doesn’t have the touch we’ve expected from ND QBs. That may be the one area that will drop off; QB throwing accuracy.

    Not taking the field goal. I was screaming for them to kick the field goal. And here’s the deal. They would have had the chance to kick one at the end. They were in range.

    Not enough of Robert Hughes.

    The offensive line still needs to learn to read the defense. We did great run blocking. Pass blocking was good, but still some assignments were missed. They’ll learn.

    Losing this game was a negative. However, I liked BK’s statement at the end. No loss is a good loss. The offense needs to get better. etc. He was concise and clear. This team will get better.

    Well tough loss, but there is light. BK seems to know where he wants to go. Not having any Super Bowl rings to flash is a plus, because we have a coach who knows how to run the full program and is hungry and confident.
