WARNING: The following is an optimistic from-the-heart post, and will therefore irritate the sober pessimists here. So be it.
All the enthusiasm for the start of the season, for last week's much needed victory was great. But it seems to have dropped off more than expected for the game this weekend. That is not acceptable!!!!! Come on guys and gals!!! This is Notre Dame week!!!! We can beat these guys!!!! Our athletes are just as good - I would put Warren and Cissoko up against any receiver duo in the nation (especially Warren). We have Graham. We have Martin. Yes ND perhaps has had better recruiting classes in the past few years - but we all know what that means - NOTHING. We have Barwis. Yes, perhaps their QB is more experienced and is finally living up to his potential. But we have a dynamic set of playmakers at the same position. The two should produce just as well. And we have better RBs. And we have two of the best coaching minds in the business - RR and GERG. Let's pick up the enthusiasm about this game!! Where are the ideas about chants, signs, going to the walk before the game, etc. etc.???
Come on, its ND week!!!!!!!!!
