according to someone covering the brian kelly press conference. no link yet. imagine that there will be one soon. the rees to floyd combination is pretty deadly.
that is nice bonus change
Rees looked way better on Saturday. Hopefully Kovacs hits him as hard as he hit Carder.
Let's chant this whenever he gets sacked.
or else ND fans wouldn't be able to claim that they would have won if Crist was in
I feel more confident going against Rees than Christ
Of course, but does Crist also scare you more than Rees?
I kinda think he may be right. Because if you think about it Rees was a back up to Crist for a reason, right? I mean there are a lot of circumstances in which a quarterback does well in relief but then struggles as a starter.
Christ would be tough to defeat.
Yes Jesus would be hard to beat. Thank god we don't have to play him. Crist and Rees are both talented but I think we stand a good chance.
Crist just isn't an accurate passer. But Carder is better than both ND QBs.
Carder might be better but he did not have the type of targets that Notre Dame will have on Saturday. Michael Floyd will not be easy to stop.
I hear the South Bend police have no trouble stopping him
In all seriousness, he is one bad mama jama.
I hope TWolf is 100% by the time Saturday rolls around or its going to be a LONG evening at the Big House. I just don't think Avery or Floyd have the skill/speed/ability to keep up with him.
Must keep pressure on Reeses Pieces to compete on D. I don't care if were disguising blitzes all day (night) with Kovacs.
But somehow Rogers shut him down last year?
He did have some big catches... 5 for 66... and I'm guessing the double coverages on him had something to do with their TE getting 8 for 164.
If I remember correctly, cam Gordon had more to do with that stat line (of the TE).
But he is a quality WR. It was the Carder to White show against Michigan as White accounted for 119 of WMU's 279 total yards.
Any word from mgouser IRISH after losing to USF? Any word from mgouser IRISH after losing to us the past two seasons? no. I guarantee you though, he'll be here if ND wins on Saturday.
an informative diary.
Yeah dude. I'm talking about being there after something bad happens to ND. You'll never see it. Of course he posted an informative diary. Did it last year too. He'll also make a bunch of passive aggressive comments throughout the offseason, as he will if ND wins.
He posted like 12 times on the thread labeled "down go the Irish" (night of their loss to USF) and he stayed classy about it. http://mgoblog.com/mgoboard/down-go-irish#comments
Listen, let me be really clear about mgouser IRISH. After losing to us the past two years, he didn't get on and say "Good Game". I GUARANTEE YOU he will log on and compliment our play if ND beats us Saturday. That is my point. Yes, he will be wishing us a good game, and complimenting our play, but he will be doing it after a ND win. Something he failed to do the last two years after ND lost.
Get my drift?
And yet, somehow, I like Irish as a poster more than you. I wonder why?
Do you want to jump onto the internet after a MICH lose and congratulate the other team's fanbase the moment the game is over?
Irish is level-headed, insightful, and respectful 99% of the time. The reason he wouldn't come on here after an ND loss should be obvious: he's still stewing over it (as any fan is when their team loses), and is sensible enough to stay away for awhile. Nothing good awaits him on this board for several days following the game, regardless of the outcome.
When Michigan loses, especially to a rival, I don't even want to be reminded of the game. No chance in hell I would go to the opposing blog site and have my face shoved in it too.
IMO, he's been a great poster. All of his posts are informative and its always good to have viewpoints of the opposition when they are coherent and non-confrontational as his have been.
Personally, I don't feel the need to have a supporter of another team congratulate me on a Michigan victory. First, I personally do not play football for Michigan so what would he be congratulating ME for? Doing a good job watching and cheering? Second, I sure as hell would not want to take the time to post when I'm sitting and stewing about losing. Maybe later, I guess, but not soon thereafter.
Does this matter? I'd be pretty pissed right after those games if we lost in similar fashion the last two years. Not sure why you need validation after we win.
Have you ever gone onto Bucknuts and congratulated them after they beat us? This is not a rhetorical question.
I'm assuming Bucknuts is an OSU message board? No, I don't go on rival message boards.
If my mother gives you a handjob, would you like me to pen you a handwritten note congratulating you on the accomplishment?
Your mom doles out handjobs to strangers?
I'm only asking because I've been a little pent up lately, and well, you know.....
It depends . . . If gremlin is just a regular John Doe like most of us then, no, probably not. However, what if gremlin is Lloyd Brady??? Would a congratulations be in order? Hmmmmm . . . its actually a tough question!
People on this board seem to have a lot of love for Irish.
And in general, he is pretty tolerable.
However, the weeks leading up to this season, he was a typical ND blowhard, spouting off like he KNEW they were BCS bound.
That's where he started to piss me off.
Of course, after the USF loss, he was on here acting much more humble. I do have to give him props for even showing up though. And his diary breaking down the ND depth chart was very informative.
Overall, he definitely makes some positive contributions to this board. But he needs to watch his tongue sometimes if he wants to continue getting all the positive favor he currently has on this blog.
In Kelly's and the collective ND mind, he offers the greater spark.
I think they come out desperate on Saturday night and really bring it to us... in the end it's Mattison that could end up the hero. Him and that Denard kid.
They did seem to have a better rhythm under Rees, but I wouldn't trust him if I was ND. I don't feel he handles pressure all that well, so hopefully we really get after him.
I think Rees benefits from happening to be the guy during ND's win streak last year. But if you go back and look at the stats, he wasn't all that impressive. And, as Dr. Saturday pointed out, that winning streak was more about the defense coming together.
...and the obvious choice, though I don't think it much matters to us. Our job is to get to the QB and pressure him. Without that, we are going to get killed on the defense.
More concerned about Floyd and the rest of the WR corps but this seems to be the right decision. Rees just gets things done for them.
Crist must be fuming.... and it's not like you are going to work in a couple "change of pace" packages for him considering his "talents" are very similar to Rees.
Crist's only chance to get in at this point is an injury or a total fail on Rees's part to move the offense (which I doubt will occur during the next 2 games - UM and Sparty)
I used to enjoy me a Reese's pieces, until I noticed the apostrophe. This chocolate-covered peanut butter belongs to someone! If a guy ever comes up to you and demands your food and says his name is Reese, you better give it to him.
Mitch Hedberg was the man... too bad he didn't make it out of his twenties..
Cutest infestation ever.
My friend asked me if I wanted a frozen banana, I said "No, but I want a regular banana later, so ... yeah".
I think Pringles original intention was to make tennis balls... but on the day the rubber was supposed to show up a truckload of potatoes came. Pringles is a laid-back company, so they just said, "Fuck it, cut em up!"
I'm against picketing, but I don't know how to show it.
It will get you in the end almost every time.
He was actually 37 when he died.
...Reese's Peanut Butter Cups take on a whole new unsavory meaning.
Rees would win the job. Told ya so
He'll make mistakes and we'll have to capitalize on those. But when he's not making mistakes he's going to be throwing bullets - the kid has gumption (I think that's still a word and I just turned into my father) and doesn't seem to get fazed.
Maybe in the Big House for a night game w/ GMAT blitzes, he'll make those mistakes early, and we can see how he looks when he gets frazzled.
I don't follow Notre Dame very closely, but isn't Rees the 14-year-old kid that we pulverized last year after he came in when Crist suffered a concussion? He lasted about two series and was so awful that they had to put in the legacy Montana kid. He must have improved exponentially since then if people here are afraid of him.
