2018 Mid-year Grades

Did this last year and was fun.

Overall team (Kelly): B+. Would have been an A if not for shoddy play vs BSU and Vandy.

Overall Offense (Long): B overall, A since Book.
QB (Reesus): A since Book. Deep ball improvement away from being A+
RB (Denson): B overall. B+ since Dex. Would like be A if Dex and TJJr were tag teaming.
WR (Alexander): B overall. Trending well with Book dealing it.
TE (Long): B- overall. I'd still like to see more production.
OL (Quinn): B- overall. Book is making it a lot easier on them.


Overall Defense (Lea): A-. What a great job all around.
DL (Elston): A+. Crazy that we have four guys hurrying the QB. What season by JT
LB (Lea): B+. The two studs are studly, and Bilal starting to emerge.
CB (Lyght): B+. "Love and Pride"... need a T-shirt made up with that on it.
S (Joseph): B. Could be an A by year end if Elliot continues to improve.


Overall Special Teams (Polian): C+
KO Kicking: C+... a few mistakes early
FG Kicking: B. 70% FGs / 100%PAT
Punting:: A . Newsome top 25
Returns (KR and PR): C+ .. not in top 30 in either
Coverage: B- .. Claypool has been a bright spot.

Strength and Conditioning (Balis): B+. The team's look and feel seems better. We'll see how they do next month.

Offensive Player of the Year: Book. Biggest impact by far. We're a different team with him.

Defensive Player of the Year: Tillery!!!! But lots of studs making a case.

True Frosh of the Year: Right now, co award to the Twins. Several making a case though.

Coach of the Year: BK for making the switch before it was too late, and Reesus for having Book kill it out of the gate.

Overall team (Kelly):*A. They are looking like a top 5 team right now. Top 5 teams come out fighting at halftime, on the road, when things aren't going well in the 1st half. They make adjustments and fight to keep their season alive.

Overall Offense (Long): B+. Book is the difference. 3 weeks ago this would have been a C. Almost gave an A but still room for improvement.
QB (Reesus): A. Get better at the deep ball and this gets bumped to A+.
RB (Denson): B+. So glad Dex is back and once Armstrong returns I think we have 3 very good backs, and going into the season we didn't know if we had even 1.
WR (Alexander): A. Now that they have a QB who can hit his targets, I think we have a great WR corps. A speed guy would make them A+.
TE (Long): B+. This group is blocking well and have more TD catches than all season long over the last few years. At least it seems that way. Lots of catches, too.
OL (Quinn): B. They started off shaky but have gotten better each week. Losing Bars may end up to be costly but didn't seem to hurt too much last week.


Overall Defense (Lea): A+. Can't really complain at having an avg of about 17 YPG given up. All units are solid to great. When is the last time that happened in the same season?
DL (Elston): A+. Just wow. This DL is the best in at least 15 years, probably more. JT is playing like a beast and the other figures are right there with him.
LB (Lea): A. Very impressed with Coney and Dru, and Bilal is coming along
CB (Lyght): A. Love and Pride are a great duo. Most teams would be happy with just 1 of those guys and we got 2
S (Joseph): B+. So impressed with this group. Easily the most improved unit on the team. Was at best a D last year. Gilman is a huge addition, Elliott so improved over last year, and Griffith is getting valuable reps that will pay off in a year or 2.


Overall Special Teams (Polian): C sigh. This is the only area that is a black mark on this special team. But they do not take away from the overall performance of the team which is why I have an overall A for the team.
KO Kicking: B+. Started off terribly but has been solid the last few weeks.
FG Kicking: A+. I have complete faith that Noon will make all field goals. When he doesn't, it's rare.
Punting: A+. Newsome is having a fantastic season
KO Coverage: B. Other than Michigan, not too many big returns.
Punt Coverage: B+. Not too many big returns.
Returns: D. Rarely get any yards

Strength and Conditioning (Balis): B+. So far. We have not been out muscled and seem to hold up, not lose stamina.

Offensive Player of the Year: ian Book

Defensive Player of the Year: JT

True Frosh of the Year: Jayson A

Coach of the Year: Kelly. He set his pride aside and did what was best for the team

Overall team (Kelly): A- The decade-long effort to develop quality depth and consistency is starting to bear fruit, finally.

Overall Offense (Long): B+
QB (Reesus): A- post-Book. I worry a bit about the deep game. But just a bit.
RB (Denson): B+ Not Denson's fault, but would have been a B- until Dexter Williams came back. We just didn't have the horses.
WR (Alexander): A- Miles Boykin > ESB. I do wish we could work the young guys in a little more.
TE (Long): B They're fine, by ND standards, which for tight ends puts them pretty good nationally.
OL (Quinn): B+ Went from Hainsey struggles to Bars getting hurt. All season there's been something, but they've been good enough to get the job done.


Overall Defense (Lea): A This may be the most complete Notre Dame defense I've since the peak Holtz years
DL (Elston): A+ This is what a four-man pass rush looks like and it is awesome. Just stay healthy.
LB (Lea): A Not sure what more you could ask out of Coney and Tranquil. Bilal coming on, too.
CB (Lyght): A+ Two guys you can trust on every throw. Even when they get beat, they're right there.
S (Joseph): A- Hugely improved.


Overall Special Teams (Polian): B. Meh.
KO Kicking: C. You don't want to even notice kickoffs. Too many times, we have noticed.
FG Kicking: A- We're going to miss that Justin Yoon.
Punting: B+ We're going to miss Newsome, too.
KO Coverage: B Seems fine. I dunno.
Punt Coverage: B Same. I love when Claypool drops a guy.
I guess we're not even bothering to grade the return game, which seems fitting for how little Kelly seems to care about it.

Strength and Conditioning (Balis): Incomplete. Check back in a month.

Offensive Player of the Year: Book. How could it be otherwise?

Defensive Player of the Year: Kareem. Please stay another year.

True Frosh of the Year: Right now I'd say Houston Griffith. By Thanksgiving could well be Jay A.

Coach of the Year: Lea. I know he's got a veteran defense, but he has actually improved on Elko, which is saying something.

Spot on here. Definitely improved since Balis arrived, but we slowed down big time last November, yet again. I'll reserve judgement until we get back from LA, but so far so good to date, I agree.
