    aha i just think FSU is going to be crazy hype for this game with all the Bowden tributes etc. Can you imagine if Lou died and ND's first home game after was a night game against a traditional rival/blue blood??? The place would be going bananas. The atmosphere/emotion is probably worth at least a touchdown/10 points to them
    What did Davonte do?

      I actually have more confidence in Correll as a center than at guard.

      I do worry about both tackles, though.

      And I worry that Freeman favors putting a lot of pressure on his corners, which is ND's weakest defensive unit.

      And at this point our view of the passing game is built entirely on terse statements from beat reporters and tiny practice clips.

        • Fuck no, I'm not worried about this game. Minus a championship, this is the ND program we've been waiting a long time for, and I'm enjoying the ride while it lasts.

          ND by 2+ touchdowns.

            LT Blake Fisher - very talented player but still a freshman who's going to make freshman mistakes.
            LG Zeke Correll - played well at center last year but this will be his first time playing guard and he's undersized.
            C Jarrett Patterson - I have no worries about patterson
            RG Cain Madden - yeah he was a second team all-American last year but he played against a lot of low level talent. he's listed at 6'3 but looks much shorter and watching his film he doesn't seem to move that well/fast, not sure he's a guy who can get to the second level and make a block. am worried when he has to pull or reach for a block but cant get their fast enough
            RT Josh Lugg - big kid with lots of playing time under his belt the last few years, should do fine at RT.
            It's hard to predict how a freshman will respond in their first game but Fisher is the best option they have, per BK. He's massive and athletic and he's been taking reps in camp against guys that are better than what he'll see at FSU. If he can handle Foskey, he can handle FSU's DE. I think he may have a few issues just like any other freshman but will be fine overall.

            Correll is a bit undersized but he's close to 300lbs and that's more than enough to hold his own. I read a few reports that Cain does't move very well but I doubt that will be a huge issue in the run game. Getting to the second level has more to do with technique and getting movement on double teams up to the second level than it does with raw speed. He's probably going to have some issues in pass pro if he's lined up against a quick 3 tech. Same story with Lugg with a quick 5 tech

            Just a guess but once these guys get settled in, I think they'll be fine. D coordinators will probably attack the right side of the line with speed and/or slanting gaps. We'll see how Cain/Lugg respond.

            Fishers will be elite whether it's by the end of this year or next, Patterson is elite and Correll will hold his own or get replaced by Spindler.

            Not a single guy on FSU would start for ND...so if we're worried about our line, imagine what they're doing in Tallahassee.

            • Big Fish is a damn animal. I'm sure there could be some freshmen mistakes, but I hope he just mauls the hell out of FSU's DL.

              • According to Warchant.com the team knows who's at QB for FSU but the rest of us will find out when the game starts. Serious question- if MacKenzie Milton was "all the way back" from his injury would there be any chance Jordan Travis could beat him out?

                          You are right sir and thank you for reminding me. I now hope our guys get to tee off on him.

                            Hard to bet before you've seen either team. If I had to guess we may come out a little flat on offense with a new OL to break in and unproven WRs. On the flip side unless FSU has manufactured an explosive offense in the off season I don't think our defense should have a problem with them. Really hard to say, but if I had to guess I'd go under. I hate betting first games though, just my 2 cents.

                            • From what I have heard and read I’m expecting Jordan Travis to be the starter.

                              As for the over under of 55.5 pets…I’ll just say last year the score was 42-26 totaling 68 points with Jordan Travis as the QB for FSU. Just saying…

                                  There's only been one opening game in BK's tenure here against a P5 opponent that they've gone over 55 combined and it was the 2016 Texas debacle. We've seen Quinn's OL struggle after a reload before, although I hope that doesn't happen. If they come out firing on all cylinders then I could see us scoring 5-6 TDs behind Kyren, Tyree, and Mayer alone. If that revamped FSU DL gives us fits and our defense doesn't miss a beat I think it could be a lower score this time.

                                  • One of my favorite coach rants. And one that needs to be remembered. Helps keep you humble, ya know.



                                    "The facts are for a significant portion of this season, this team has felt like they are entitled to something because the team before us won eleven games..."

                                    Don't get caught up in the fact that we have been a good team the last few years. Go out and be this year's ND team. Just being ND doesn't make you good and some of you as fans might need to remember that.

                                    I'm setting the bar high for our boys too but just keep in mind that this is a much different team than last year's team (and the team before that and the team before that).

                                                  If it's a two TD game half way through the 4th, I'll flip the nervous switch to the on position.

You can have really harsh words that unify and hopefully jump start a turnaround but I don't think Leech's strategy is the correct one. Maybe I'm in the minority, I still loved it because I love an old fashioned coach rant. I simply question the efficacy of his execution.

You can have really harsh words that unify and hopefully jump start a turnaround but I don't think Leech's strategy is the correct one. Maybe I'm in the minority, I still loved it because I love an old fashioned coach rant. I simply question the efficacy of his execution.

I’m on vacation with my fam and was planning on streaming the game on the ABC app. I have DirecTV as my home television service and I just downloaded the app and logged into my subscriber and was notified that DirecTV customer can’t stream through the app. Argh…so frustrating (especially when I’m able to stream on EVERY other network’s app). Anyone know another way to stream the game? Thank you very much in advance for any help. Go Irish!!!

I may not rely on it for an ND game bc it occasionally buffers or glitches and I don't need that conniption. But it's a Saturday staple for me.
