Rees isn’t fixing this offense so they need to change the OC (Tom Herman?). To help out with recruiting which Rees is dreadful at even without this loss.

We've always had at least one competent QB, so yes.
Competent and good is very far apart. 11 years of that jackass BK and he didn't really give us anything other than average at best. I blame a lot of the QB stuff on Brian.
Not 1 NFL QB.

I might just be done with the Irish. It’s not just this game. The world has passed us by. We are playing self-handicapped, and refuse to change due to some holier-than-thou attitude. This is not good for my mental health. Seriously considering it

The saddest part is IMO home games are always the most boring and drama(bad, nail-biter against Marshall drama) filled because the crowd is so passive and non-existent.

It’s like watching a game played in a museum.

The players seem to play with less energy at home. It’s not an excuse, just an observation. It is what it is.

And hiring Rees. And Swarbrick enabling all of it.

If you’re done, that’s as good as reason as any. I’ll stick around. I‘m a glutton.

I'll say this, though. BK wouldn't have lost this game. They would've won ugly just like the Ball State and Vandy games in 2018.

Im not blaming this mess on Freeman. The biggest issue is lack of QB play and lack of play makers. QB play is on Rees. But at the same time this OL should be better than it was last year and same goes to the DL who returned everyone. Staff needs to either get Carr to come in 2023 or go after a guy in the transfer portal because Buchner isn’t gonna cut it. And Why would Tobias Merriweather, Thomas or Styles stick around and play another year with him? You can almost Gurantee they transfer to greener pastures. This loss will kill recruiting as well, Freeman better get on the phone with Hartline and ask how much he wants to be OC.

This is what happens when you squeeze the blood from a stone with donations and ticket pricing. Gotta quit catering to the blue hairs, bring in the loud youth.

Hire me. I'll get us to 9-3.

Rees is a jackass. Doesn't understand how to win a game against the little sisters of the poor.
Sounds good to me . Lol.

Anyhow, I was asking a serious question. Is there someone on staff who could legitimately step in?

I don't think Rees is fixing this offense, but honestly no one is fixing this offense. You can't execute plays when you're consistently giving up pressure in the middle after the snap, and can't get a push for half a yard against Marshall. OL is trash.

No joke. The last two bad white coaches we had got 5 yrs.
Davie and Weiss? Why is this about race? It was different with Davie at the time and Weiss could recruit top level talent. What are you trying to say?

Please do. You havn't once been a fan that's real. Not 1 time have I ever read your post and thought that you where a real Irish fan. Trolling Is the norm In a day and age that men can be woman and woman think they control the world...

It was a response to the guy who said we're stuck with Freeman for 3 years because he's black.

Losing sucks. Period.

But even if Notre Dame goes 0-12, I will be watching and cheering for them every snap.

True character shows when times are tough.
Go Irish! ☘️
Which is perfectly fine but it’s also fair to criticize the team. Adults should be able to criticize without sounding like an asshat.

Freeman is the head. Freeman can see the same things as Tommy and everyone else. Freeman was with this team last year and saw these guys with his own eyes last year. Freeman saw these QBs practice all spring and summer. Evaluate your talent and then make some decisions. If Tommy has full control over the QBs that’s Freeman’s fault. Anyway you slice it, this is on Freeman.

He is the head coach. The guys apparently didn’t want to play. And he hire his guy for special teams that are awful.

Interesting to hear what everyone’s adjusted floor & ceiling is for this team going forward. Anything said today may be too hyperbolic (my immediate answer was 3 wins as a ceiling) but once the dust is settled, it’ll be interested to see if they can recover enough to salvage the season.
