7-5, 6-6, 5-7 ??

Yes, it’s a given, the Notre Dame Football season is tanked. Not quite as bad as the morons over at NDNation would have you believe, but trashed and broken just the same. No one is jumping out of basement windows or cutting their wrists with dull butter knives yet, we still have four games to go in a season that started out with such high expectations.

Many are walking around the now quite battlefield and bayoneting the wounded.

The Fighting Irish have not gotten any breaks. Be it injuries, some questionable referee calls, turnovers, bonehead play calling or drive-killing penalties. You can’t judge heart, desire, determination, love of the game, team loyalty, toughness, and all the other adjectives that make up a winning football program from a television set in the comfort of your living room. You have to be at practice, stand in the corner of the locker room and judge with your gut. So we shall leave all that to other pundits and experts.

We are not convinced that Dayne Crist can run a Kelly type offense anymore than Ron Powlus could run a Holtz-Davie offense. But we’ll leave that too for the experts.

Our arm chair (actually a LazyBoy) take is quite simple: NO OFFENSIVE LINE.

We back that up with two statistics through eight games.

Number of sacks allowed: 16 ranked 65th.

Rushing offense: 112.13 yards per game ranked 98th.

We at Subway Alumni Station are not convinced that Notre Dame can beat Tulsa, thus we are going with 5-7 to finish the season.
