Notre Dame is LOADED

with talented football players that is.
Gee when was the last time you read that headline?  Usually it’s USC or Alabama that’s loaded.  Of course Alabama is however USC is a paper tiger and a thin one at that.

It’s going to happen and bear fruit NEXT year.  Why?
** 2013 recruiting class (22) is currently ranked #2.  It appears three more is about all Brian Kelly can take.  The class is loaded with talent and 3 or 4 of the guys could start next year just like a number have this year.

** IF Zack Martin, Cierre Wood, Chris Watt, Nick Tausch, Carlo Calabrese, Danny Fox return.  Tyler Eifert is the only sure one leaving.  Wood is a toss-up and we think Martin and Watt will return.
** A nice stable of freshmen, redshirt freshman and sophomores very hungry to play and get more playing time are in the wings.  It is a young and talented Team for sure.

** A strong group of freshman are getting plenty of playing time this year; Everett Golson, Matthias Farley, Davonte Neal, DaVaris Daniels and KeiVarae Russell.
** The Team has great chemistry.  Manti Te’o is the catalyst and Braxton Cave, Kapron Lewis-Moore and Tyler Eifert are part of the cement.  Unfortunately they are all leaving however guys like Lewis Nix, Cierre Wood and George Atkinson III will fill in nicely.

** The Irish are finally strong at tailback, quarterback and wide receiver positions and continue to be deep at tight end and safety.  Most of the defensive and offensive lines are returning.

** Finally, the Irish are loaded with a competent, well integrated and fully functioning coaching staff.  Brian Kelly has converted a ton of fans after the Tulsa play calling fiasco and throwing Dayne Crist and a few other Weis holdovers under the bus.  The rumbling fear is that Assistant Head Coach and Defensive Coordinator Bob Diaco will be getting some offers he can’t refuse.  We think Tony Alford is a more likely candidate to be the first one out the door.  Tony is the WR and running backs coach as well as an outstanding recruiter.  He is a holdover from the Weis era and had a number of nibbles and interest last year.
