  1. Similar to Sage,Jmjacobs, and bmlig95. Will bump after each week's games are added. Should we keep NDSU stats with the Independents?
  2. Notre Dame pass defense is hopefully better than you think.
  3. Not sure if it's an option or been covered but expanded box scores. We don't always see everyone who records a tackle or sack but it would be nice to see all those plus track rookies who's stats get overshadowed by veteran production. Plus things like red zone efficiency and time of possession. Add a short yardage goal line back - Something fun where teams could put a big DL as RB or FB. For college recruiting, it would be interesting to add recruits more than the current year. While recruiting for the current year, you could also get recruits a year younger and be able to get a verbal commitment. This could lead to players to de-commit once they get to the current year and then either re-commit or commit to another school.
  4. Could get political and say Too close to call.
  5. How does this affect Independents without a "conference" pool of states to choose from?
  6. joedchi, South Bend Tribune. Rumor has it that Kyle's dad was spotted in Chapel Hill shortly after this announcement. Is there any fear of Kyle transferring to your hated rival?
  7. Both Owen Sorenson and Brendan Lange enjoyed stretches of strong play as the quarterback competition heated up during the Notre Dame Fighting Irish's annual Blue-Gold Game. In the end, Lange's Gold squad earned the 41-35 victory. Sorenson displayed a better overall understanding of the offense, which doesn't come as a surprise given the experience he gained last year, but he did have a pass picked off. Lange held his own but had a stronger run game to help take the pressure off him. With that in mind, let's take a deeper dive into some of the top story lines to emerge from the Fighting Irish's 2020 spring game. Quarterback Battle Irish head coach joedchi stated coming into the spring game that trying to get a good read on the quarterback situation was crucial. He explained they set up the rosters as evenly as possible in order to give both players a fair opportunity. Sorenson finished 23 of 31 for 288 yards with 4 touchdowns and 1 interception. Lange finished 20 of 29 for 260 yards with 2 touchdowns and no interceptions. Defensive Standouts Although most of the focus coming into the game was on the quarterbacks, the Notre Dame defenders wanted to make an impression as well. No player stood out more frequently than Luke Waggoner. The junior defensive end, who lined up with the Blue team, was all over the place making plays, both in run defense and getting after the quarterback. His only mistake was a missed tackle on the Gold team's first touchdown Senior cornerback Antonio Early put together a strong showing for the Gold side, recording the only interception of the game. Early is one of three returning starters in the secondary and the group will be counted on heavily heading into the season to anchor the defense. Brandon Elias was highly impressive for the Gold defense playing out of position. The senior walk-on wasn't recruited coming out of high school—a 2-star prospect, who has regularly shined on the scout team. He recorded a game high 7 tackles and showed the versatility to provide depth at all linebacker positions while hopefully becoming a force on the kickoff teams. Quick Hits Junior running back Kalei Keil proved to be the most effective player on the field. He ran the ball 22 times for 167 yards and three touchdowns. Ray Briscoe scampered into the end zone from 4 yards out for his second touchdown in the game. The sophomore ran with authority every time he touched the ball. That includes breaking two tackles on a screen pass for his first touchdown. Thierno McGhee appears ready to claim a more active role in the offense following the departure of Bruce Riley. The wideout was able to create separation on a consistent basis, and he has the size to be a reliable target for either quarterback. Jonas Grover hauled in a 33 yard touchdown pass from Sorenson. With the unexpected departure of Tyler Dotson, Grover will be learning on the job and the hope is he can reach his full potential sooner rather than later. Notre Dame appeared to emerge from the game without suffering any serious injuries. Although the coaching staff wants to see players fighting for playing time, doing so without suffering any health setbacks is the biggest thing at this time of the year.
  8. Time was very helpful taking me on as DC while waiting for a team to open up. We discussed gameplans and recruiting and he was great at answering my questions. A little while later Dallas posted looking for an assistant GM which was great seeing how things work before jumping in. Serwendel asked me for input and gave alot of guidance.
  9. This Wednesday or next Wednesday? Do we know when the last Spring games are?
  10. Is this the NFL power rankings or NFC playoff picture?
  11. Ames is the difference maker. Hopefully Haden figures Condon out. That is the key between 9-3 and 5-7.
  12. Completed for Spring game:
  13. What about creating pipelines at certain high schools. If you signed a recruit from a high school last year you get a 25% bump in recruiting points at that high school the following year. IRL if you visit a high school you notice other players at that same school. Also, some players tend to follow old teammates to college.
  14. NOTRE DAME, Indiana - Tickets went on sale today for the annual University of Notre Dame Blue-Gold Game, presented by Boling Vision Center. The football game will take place on Monday, May 1, at Notre Dame Stadium. It's a great opportunity to get a sneak peek at the 2020 Fighting Irish football squad. Proceeds from the Blue-Gold Game will help support the scholarship fund of the Notre Dame Club of St. Joseph Valley. As he prepares to for his first spring game as Notre Dame coach, joedchi made it clear every Irish player is competing for a starting job. Joedchi's philosophy is that everyone must earn their spot and the biggest and most important battle will be at the quarterback position. With D.K. Bates gone, redshirt Senior Owen Sorenson and redshirt Freshman Brendan Lange are the two leading candidates to replace him. Sorenson started the first two games last year going 32 for 56 with a touchdown and two interceptions. While completing 57% of his passes, it was his inability to find scrambling lanes that led to his ineffectiveness. The Irish lost both games though and Sorenson was replaced by Bates. Lange redshirted last season but has shown great improvement since stepping on campus. While not as skilled a runner as Sorenson, Lange is a hybrid quarterback and that dual threat may give him the edge. "You just really wonder what it's going to take to finally convince people enough that I'm able to do the job," Sorenson said in March, via the Associated Press. "I don't make the decision. I'm going to keep balling and do what I need to do." Sorenson and Lange will each lead different teams during Monday's Blue-Gold Game. Getting to see each player in the No. 1 spot will provide plenty of entertainment for fans and plenty of good tape for coaches to break down before the season opener. Other notable battles: 2nd WR - Senior Jon Krause vs redshirt Freshman Shawn Clay - Krause provides the deep threat element while Clay is unproven. 2nd CB - Redshirt Junior Richard Madison vs Senior Malachi Charles vs Junior Marc Joiner - Madison, a Natural Free Safety has man cover skills and played corner last year. If he can handle the position, the job is his. If he struggles, he may shift back to safety and Charles or Joiner would get a chance as natural corners. What’s important to joedchi is that his players exhibit the qualities that Notre Dame lacked at times last year. “I want to see a great attitude, great energy across the board,” he said. “More about the process. That’s really important at this moment, more so than what the numbers are or how many carries a guy gets and his yardage. I’m not really interested in the production per se, as much as what’s really important right now is that they continue to stay on course relative to the process.”
  15. Was out of town for a couple days.
