Notre Dame Football 2013 Spring Game: Live Analysis, Notes and Recap

Blue Team 54, Gold Team 43 - Final

The Notre Dame spring game is always one of the more anticipated events during college football spring ball. This year's event was anticipated, but didn't quite live up to those expectations.

Notre Dame looked very similar to how it played last season. The offense had a hard time moving the football, the special teams struggled mightily and the defense did its job on both sides. Still, the good thing is that it was only a spring game, so folks in South Bend are able to relax.

Quarterback Everett Golson still has some work to do, but continues to show you flashes of being great, which makes you not want to give up on the kid. The receivers did a solid job of catching the ball for the most part and the running back situation looks promising.

The defense looks to be the side of the ball that will continue to be strong. The secondary looks improved, the defensive line was getting pressure and the linebackers did a good job in coverage.

When you add everything together, you end up with everything a spring game is supposed to be. Not much, but just enough to hold the fan base over for the next four months.
