Still a Lot to Like About Notre Dame Football

A few quick thoughts on Notre Dame...

So most Irish fans expected them to crush San Diego State. Well, that didn't exactly happen, but I don't think it was as bad as it looked. If they could have eliminated those turnovers, they wouldn't even have to talk about how poorly they looked.

In my opinion, the offense was boring and vanilla. I think that they expected to be able to use only a few basic plays and dominate the game on pure athletic ability alone. What I hope as a Notre Dame fan is that they are saving the good stuff for Michigan and later games.

If they come out the same as they did last week, I will be severely disappointed. I did like the improvement in Jimmy Clausen and I do see talent all over the field. Call me optimistic, but Notre Dame rolls Michigan this week.
