After getting squashed by a mediocre Boston College squad, Notre Dame football is absolutely lifeless. There’s really not much to write about, let alone care about. They may beat Syracuse, but I think they will lose again to Navy and get absolutely crushed by USC. A once-promising season will be relegated to a 6-6 record. This ND program is a huge contradiction. We lose a very winnable, immensely frustrating game to Pitt, then we get good news about a highly ranked WR recruit from SoCal committing to the Irish, then we go and lay a big fat goose egg to BC. Colin Cowherd is right … South Bend is the Bermuda Triangle of college football … where talented recruits just disappear. The current Weis coaching staff … just like its two predecessors … appears to be incompetent. Yes, they can recruit, which is an improvement over the previous post-Holtz regimes, but these guys cannot teach, motivate or effectively scheme a gameplan that works. Whether it’s the seemingly constant holding penalties killing drives … or the kickers & punters kicking footballs with no air in them … this ND team just does not inspire me in any way. They are lifeless … all you have to do is watch a game to see that.
This will be the last post dedicated to ND football …. until they make it worth my while to care again. Not sure when that will be … maybe 2017 or somewhere around there.
In the meantime, GO BOISE STATE!!!
