    Thanks for that post on Zbikowski. T.Z. is a rare breed.
    I wouldn’t doubt he’ll be among the coaching staff at ND one day.
    He seems to have what it takes to realize his dreams.

    One game at a time. The teams that will hurt ND are the strong passing teams unless we develope
    a pass rush. We will win Sat.
