Duke Post Game

I won’t be totally negative but I will be real. Also sorry if someone else is supposed to make this.

1. If we want to be taken seriously as a true elite team this team should’ve battered, beaten, and embarrassed a team like duke. That’s what elite teams do to lower tier teams.
2. The QB play was suspect and this grave inconsistency will not get us an ACC title or National title
3.We potentially have our best Defensive player out. Thankfully this was Duke and not Clemson and the rest of the D stepped up. Can that happen the rest of the year I can understand skepticism.
4. The OL was very suspect. Again this was Duke and we could make up for it but we have to improve otherwise our first and possibly only year as part of a conference will be a memorable one....for the wrong reasons.
5. We did still pull out a win while the world was in its most uncertain time so while this didn’t feel great ND wins always make me smile but that smile will fade quickly knowing we have a lot of work to do.
6. Defense is great. Hopefully our boy is ok tho.
Go Irish 1-0 avenge 2011 next week!

Notre Dame

We came out slow and asleep. Picked it up after the fake punt. It’s a weird year. I’m gonna give these teenagers and very young adults a break. They aren’t machines. They are human beings. They got a game under in there belt in an empty stadium basically and can learn and grow from there. Glad we got the W.

I am surprised to see so little of Keys considering the state of the WR corps.

Week one is always rusty.

Kyren Williams was an absolutely massive positive coming out of this game. OL play got better as the game went on. Tyree and Mayer are already flashing.

Defense started out with some atrocious tackling but got a lot better after the first couple drives. Foskey and of course JOK looked great. Crawford looked solid. Bauer got a lot more snaps than I expected him to.

Book was bad. Really discouraging to be honest. Hopefully the additions of Lenzy and eventually Austin make a real difference. McKinley can't get open. Wilkins looked promising and looked like an athlete who we should be looking to get on the field more often.

Then, the injuries...oh boy. Skowronek was also showing an inability to get open, but as an ND fan who by all accounts was working as hard as anyone, you hate to see that. Hopefully nothing too serious.

And it goes without saying, but please please please let Hamilton be okay. I think it's encouraging to hear that it might be an ankle injury. I thought it looked like a broken leg/possible knee injury.

+ OL play was underwhelming.
+ Tackling improved drastically as the game moved on.
+ Lots of different positional groupings utilized in the 1H. I get it. Gotta give guys some meaningful reps to see what they’ve got.
+ Defense really played well, overall. Gotta hope Hamilton is alright.
+ Can anyone expound upon the lack of Lenzy? No reps to me shows either an injury or COVID protocol?
+ Book was pedestrian. He is what we thought he was.
+ TE U is really going to have to live up to that monicker this year.
+ Our best WR are a converted DB and QB. Paging Jordan Jefferson. Hey Deion Colzie...are you watching?

A win is a win, this year.

Not gonna focus on the negatives after one week, but Book needs to chill out in the pocket. Major happy feet, and this is nitpicking but so many times in his career when he is scrambling, all he has to do is throw it away, but he will run out of bounds for 2-3 yard losses. Seems small, but that can be the difference between a first down and a drive stopping.

Jordan Johnson and Braden Lenzy please stand up.

Onto the positives...

The offensive line in the second half needs to be the line we see every half.

Williams is that dude

Mayer will be a first round pick.

Oh and lastly and the biggest positive, Michigan and the BIG look dumb.
