Two Notre Dame Spring Football Story Lines

It appears from reading all the hype and hyperbole coming from the media and the internet concerning Notre Dame Football Spring Practice that two story lines seem to be emerging. The sources include ND students, hangers-on, spies from the Big Ten, credible websites, drunkards, reporters of dubious character, and of course persons trying to turn an honest buck. Here in a short nutshell is what the National Security Agency (NSA) and Subway Alumni Station (SAS) have gleamed from the intelligence flow coming out of South Bend.

1. The infant still learning-to-walk Notre Dame offense SUCKS big time.

2. The Fighting Irish defense is starting to look like they will simply destroy opposing teams. Hard hitting, swarming, gang tackling type killers. It is about time and long over due. Sign SAS up. We are ready to help engage and kick butt. The Irish faithful want to see opposing offensive players simply carted off the field attended by trainers and team doctors. It will happen this fall and it is about time. The last good Irish defensive, believe it or not stemmed from Mr. Footbaw, Bob Davie.  (Who else was the last to beat U$C?)

Why the problems on offense? Simply a hobbled Dayne Crist who can’t play at 100% and thus no identifiable leader at quarterback who can step up to the plate. Everyone including Coach Kelly hates red jerseys and no contact. Also apparently, Nate Montana is not going to be the answer. Watch the Blue-Gold Game to verify his lack of ability.

The well documented Kelly offense is very high powered and scores at will, often with surprise and frequency. Not the offense that has been displayed coming out of South Bend thus far during Spring Practice. The unknown linchpin is quarterback. Quinn, Clausen, and now will it be Crist?
