We Want A Healthy Barkley

You never want to see a football player get hurt.  The injury to our arch rival USC’s quarterback Matt Barkley is troubling for a number of reasons.

1,  We all want to beat a healthy USC.  No excuses like two years ago when Barkley went down with an ankle injury in the previous game and the Irish squeaked by USC with a transfer second stringer at the helm.  Oh yeah, forgot, if the one pass had not been dropped, the Trojans still would have won.
2.  You would assume that Barkley knew he was coming back to a paper tiger of a Team.  Great receiving corps however the defense and linemen positions were thin.  The inevitable injuries only depleted the ranks even further.  Look at QB, redshirt Max Wittek will get the start.  He has thrown a total of nine passes all year.

3.  NFL pundits are going to point out, see, Barkley should have left early while healthy and his stock was high.  Other players will understand, heed, and leave early as well.  The curse of giving up an education and accepting the money is one of the worst things that has happened to college sports.  Every year the Kentucky basketball team has to reload because of the defections.  Most never make it and end up back home broke and looking for trouble.
4.  You just never want to see anyone get hurt.  The Irish have had their share of injuries and problems, just look at the list on the left side of the Blog.

We expect a great game in LA.  While ESPN despises Notre Dame they don’t mind piggybacking their College GameDay circus when the Irish play.  This Saturday will be the third time, Stanford, Oklahoma, and now USC.  Both teams will be charged to play, the Irish will prevail, it will not be a trap game.  The Team chemistry, brotherhood, and one game at a time attitude will win out.  Last year the Irish quit after sloppy playing, this year it will be revenge. 
Go Irish, Beat the Trojans
