maybe i should have had greg howard write the brandon obit.
Why the heck isn't there a Gallon thread already?! Seriously, guys! We don't win this game without His Cloakedness, Lord Gallon.
8 catches for 184 yards! That is 6th on the all time record list, and number one is Roundtree's 2010 3OT Illinois Off-FEST, that that one doesn't count. He was 5 yards shy, FIVE yards shy of Bralonfest, in REGULATION!
Not to mention I'm pretty sure he's now an "Arrest On Sight" target in South Bend, something akin to Rambo. He's given us more highlights and holy crap moments against ND than any one player, heck, and 5 players, has the right to.
In conclusion, I give you this:
Any and all predictions go here. Who wins? What's the score? The first play? The fourteenth play? The final play? If you want bragging rights for a prediction, it has to go in writing before kickoff, so here's your chance.
Personally, here's my call for the first play on offense: play action of a zone stretch left, with Funchess coming across the formation left to right from his TE position on an intermediate route, Gallon going deep on the right, and another TE (Butt?) coming into the right flat late on a checkdown route.
Notre Dame offensive linemen Zack Martin and Chris Watt recall Under the Lights I with irishillustrated.com, ranking the experience above some other notable away games:
"According to Martin and Watt, nothing last season - not Oklahoma under the lights or USC at the Coliseum - stood up to the Big House two seasons ago. It’s likely no stadium moving forward will, either."
I hope this year's game is two times as loud and leaves them with an everlasting impression of the big house. Go blue and beat ND!
I have two quick questions about College Gameday. I'm a sophomore, and therefore was not here when College Gameday was in town for the 1st UTL game. Can anyone that went tell me how early you showed up, and how good your spot in the crowd was? Is it worth being there if you show up at, say, 8AM and you're behind a massive amount of people?
Also, would my cowbell be confiscated if I were to bring it? Anyone with past college gameday expirience is welcome to share their expiriences.
Brady Hoke was on the Dan Patrick Show for about 10 minutes this morning. He talked Michigan-ND, Pizza Thursday, Clowney taking Smith's head off (I don't have any sound at work and haven't didn't listen to the broadcast so I am completely plagiarising here)...and of course Johnny Football. Cause why not.
The article above is mostly about what coach Hoke's answer to Dan Patrick's Johnny Football question, but it does have the video of the whole 10 min block where Brady is on. Anyway's here is my favorite quote of the article,
If Johnny Manziel's our quarterback, he'd probably be playing behind Devin Gardner.
Please embed the video in the comments if possible, since that's the only thing that matters.
