I’m very happy to see this Notre Dame win, as ugly as it was, but I have a few points I think need to be said:

1. I hope no one credits Weis for this victory—he certainly did his part to jack it up!

2. Harrison Smith IS NOT GOOD! There's just no other way to say it. He can lay wood, but that's about it and when it doesn't knock a guy down, it's worthless wood—which is what happens ALL THE TIME. Or worse yet, he just whiffs. Regardless, he needs to have a seat because he's now a liability.

3. Why the %#$! is Kyle Rudolph not getting the ball? I understand Tate is probably the best athlete on the field at any given time, but Rudolph is not far behind! He is constantly being ignored and I don't know why.

4. Thanks, wildcat, once again!

5. Hughes is overrated. I love the kid's heart and what he did a couple seasons ago but he's not a tailback and I'd appreciate it if Weis would wake up and realize this fact.

6. Dammit it was good to see Notre Dame beat BC! The old man was there so it made the win that much more enjoyable!
