Because it's Labor Day - I think they were hoping it would be only game that day and help improve ratings/national visibility

Should we cheer b-one-g or b-I-g...so confusing.

Nice...hilarious

 Teams should cheer for their teams. I don't cheer "afc north" when the Browns win even if they may be the best division in the nfl this year. And I think cheering "s-e-c" instead of osu would be a lot more entertaining to make fun of their whole region while taking over New Orleans/lsu country.

1) Offense - All the pundits are saying that Alabama will force Cardale to throw. I hope they do. After rewatching the first half of the BTN Championship, Cardale was on point, 10-13 for >200 yards (I think) and 2 TD (and that was with EzE dropping a TD pass). I think the only way the run game will open up is with making them respect the pass game. The passes were mostly underneath to the sideline or deep balls and I think they go with the same passing attack.

2) Offense - QB runs/reads were ineffective against Wisconsin. In addition to opening up the passing game, I liked the 2 back sets within 30 yards of the endzone (Samuel/Elliot or Elliot/Marshall). These were an effective way for us to score and I think we can open up the running game more by using Samuel/Marshall/Wilson and not having Cardale run too much.

3) Defense - We stopped Wisconsin mostly because they are one-dimensional. Bama has two great running backs and the best WR in the country. They will be much more difficult to stop.

So I expect a high scoring affair similar to Alabama vs. Auburn game and hopefully we can win and we make a few more big plays and a few crucial stops and win the turnover battle.

Yeah the way our defense is playing..conservative is ok.. I stand corrected from previous post.

Comment 25 Oct 2014

Yes (in big ten competition at least..man our conference is in fact sh*tty) we will see it against msu. I expect it to still be a close game though depending on how the offense is called

Comment 25 Oct 2014

Yeah I understand playing conservative..but we need to open this up some more. That was our issue last year and if we play like this I don't think we will escape  AT msu. Use our weapons!!!

He is an asshol*..I tried to say hi to him at a game and he ignored me and just muttered, "I know." "I know" as if he was too cool to acknowledge any other fans

Comment 19 Oct 2014

done..i added a few other headliners too if one of the above teams has a good chance to lose..for example USC vs. Utah this weekend. Other than that game, I would be surprised if any of the other teams lose this weekend.

Agree the website says a lot without really saying anything. I agree with your thoughts above and this would be more similar to the selection committee for basketball. After these rankings come out, there is a spokeperson who then has to explain the rankings to the media. I am ready for the sh*t show that will ensue. I guess I am more optimistic though that they will reward conference champions as they state, so I think we might be in good shape if ND loses again and another conference has a 2 loss champion.

Comment 19 Oct 2014

The ap rankings are irrelevant this year...I'll be more interested to see the playoff committee rankings that will come out after next weekend. If we do our job and a few other teams fall, I think we will be in good shape if we crack the top 10 of these rankings.

The whole website has a pretty good overview of you haven't already seen it.

Comment 18 Oct 2014

Agree 100% with all three "realizations." While I think we have a chance this year to prove it if things work out, I think next year will really be our year and we will be a very dominant team on both sides, particularly given the improvement we have seen on both sides already this year. I know no one wants to talk about it now but a 2 qb system next year would be impossible for teams to prepare for since the qbs are so different. You saw it today with dontre in the wildcat. Defenses can be confused with quick substitutions at quarterback and Braxton would be an even more effective run threat. Obviously getting way ahead of myself but one can dream of things to come.

Ha espin doesn't even know the name our quarterback...they'll figure it out by the end of the year

I'm hoping for a blowout for nd vs. Fsu. A close game does us no good!
