Whenever you bring in a coach like Brian Kelly your offense will be hard to stop. The Irish have a lot of targets on the offensive side of the ball with the best WR in the nation when healthy Michael Floyd, and one of the best TE's in the nation in Kyle Rudolph, they have great running backs in Armando Allen, Robert Hughes and Cierre Wood could suprise a lot of people this year.
Dayne Crist will throw for a lot of yards this year and touchdowns but can he deliver in crunch time and win some games for the Irish this year?
That is remained to be seen.
They have a new coordinator Bob Diaco who likes to run the 3-4 defense. The linebackers are the most experienced group with Manti Te'o, Brian Smith and Darius Fleming.
The defensive line and secondary will be tested all year and will have to step up in a lot of games this year.
10-2 for Notre Dame sounds well its a very easy schedule.
