If anyone follows me on Twitter, he or she understands how much Hurricane coordinators Mark D'Onofrio and Jedd Fisch irritate me every game.
Even though the Hurricanes offense has been throwing up crazy numbers lately, Fisch still throws in some very questionable calls—yes, swing passes are one of them. The defense is well, horrible, to say the least.
What ties it all together though is head coach Al Golden. His die-hard attitude and family-orientated dedication to the team is simply amazing to watch.
Case in point, against Georgia Tech, wide receiver Malcolm Lewis went down with a dislocated ankle and who was there to comfort Lewis when he needed it most? Al Golden.
Golden held Lewis tight and gave him words of encouragement—not like a coach would do, but what a parent would do.
Notre Dame also has some issues it needs to take care of, especially on offense. It doesn't matter how great the defense is, if the offense can't put up any points, it won't help the Irish in the long run.
Good thing the Irish have Brian Kelly on their sidelines. Kelly is a terrific coach, and it showed when he turned Cincinnati to a 12-0 team in 2009.
He is currently turning the Irish into a dominant program since taking over for the 2010 season.
The decision was tough, each team has problems it needs to correct, but have the right head coaches in place.
