Video: OSU and ND Spring Game Highlights

In case you missed the tweet this morning, I wrote a rant on mgoangst. My boredom will probably lead to more spring game every snap videos shortly.

I may be wrong, but isn’t ND’s offense predicated on spread to pass? Miller is very athletic, so he can be really effective in a Meyer type offense that often utilizes the QB as a run threat. Don’t think he’d do well at all in ND’s offense though. Apples to Oranges, I’d think.

Kelly adapts the offense to whoever the best QB is. Last year it happend to be two prostyle guys w/o wheels in Crist and Rees. Miller reminds me of a little faster but not as good passer in Andrew Hendrix. In passed years Kelly would rather have a Pro stlye guy than say someone like Denard who's game is dependant on his running ability (No offense). The new offensive coordinator Chuck Martin seems more run oriented but we shall see.

BTW I was referring to this coming year with Rees and Miller and not 2 or 3. Miler obviously has more potential.

Takehomes from the ND video:  if Borges can get Denard in space, watch out.  He might very well push to break the longest running touchdown in ND stadium history.

I'll be honest, Ohio running the spread scares me quite a bit with Braxton Miller at QB. The thing that doesn't scare me from an offensive stand point is that's all they have. Their O-line is average, and they have no playmakers at WR and RB.

Is when he says there is a heavy blitz on the Williams interception. They brought a whopping three man pressure on the play. Only the best and brightest at Notre Dame.

atkinson looks good.  That's a tough 1-2 punch at RB.  Rees and Hendrix looked pretty meh.  Gholson (sp?) looks more natural, but he had lots of double clutch throws, obviously doesn't know what he's doing out there yet.  I can see what the grumbling is about down there.  

I wonder if B. Miller has small hands.  He just doesn't throw a tight spiral.  How did meyer luck into 2 running QB's his first year and RR got none?  c'est la vie.

i agree with you Run 2 daylig.  They need to take advantage of there offensive line and pound the rock.   If turnovers dont kill them again this year ND could have a huge year offensively.
