  • How about that!

    I was hoping for 2-2 start, so 4-0 is amazing. This one was much closer than it needed to be given six Michigan turnovers. Notre Dame will get into the Top 10 with this win and they do indeed have a Top 10 defense. The offense on the other hand, is Bottom 50 and sooner or later, they are going to have to outscore someone.

    With the bye week, perhaps Coach Kelly can figure some things out. I'm guessing Tommy Rees will be the starter against Miami. Anyway, it's been a decade since the Irish were 4-0, so I'll enjoy it for the next coupe of weeks.moreless
  • Michigan Notre Dame

    Certainly not a shootout, or even a compelling game like last year, but this was still a battle in its own right. Both quarterbacks struggled mightily, one even got pulled, and it was a case of the defenses both being ready for the opposition.

    Denard Robinson, a player I thought could one day be an NFL star, looked really confused here. I'll give the Irish credit for being ready for his duel-threat of running and passing, but he just looked lost tonight.

    Huge win for Notre Dame and while I don't expect a National Title game appearance they definitely are back.moreless

  • TRIVIA (2)

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Notre Dame Coach Brian Kelly: A great team win for our guys. Defensively, what can I say? Six turnovers, limited who we felt is one of the most dynamic offensive players in the country to no touchdowns. Just an incredible performance by our defense.
      Notre Dame Coach Brian Kelly: As much as we would have liked to have executed better on offense, give Michigan a lot of credit. They did a very good job defensively, and we knew we were going to be in for this kind of close, tough, hard-nosed football game, and proud of the way our guys pulled it off.

    • (on Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson)
      Notre Dame Linebacker Manti Te'o: The key to stopping Robinson, the key to stopping such a dynamic player like Denard is everybody has to get to him. Denard will start running one way and then totally cut back the other way. Everybody has to get to the ball. You have to really emphasize 11 guys to the ball.

    • Michigan Quarterback Denard Robinson: It won't happen no more. I'm going to be accountable for the rest of the season. I don't want to feel like this no more. In the 22 years I've been living, this is the most disappointed I've ever been in myself.
