Couple quick thoughts.
ND hasn't been this talented in the trenches on both sides of the ball at the same time since the Holtz era.
ND hasn't been able to get after the QB like this in a long time.
Some of the major changes at ND include Brian Kelly and his coaching staff going out and not only getting difference makers in the defensive front seven, but also just in general landing bigger players. ND is much bigger from a physical perspective than they've been in the past. More NFL bodies running around.
ND now has a training table. Been huge for them the last two years.
I'm not saying this team is as good as Alabama and LSU just pointing out a couple things on why I feel they're on the right track. It was a great win for them tonight against a very physical and good football team on the road.

I think so to , the d looks pretty good. The schedule will probably catch up to them this year though, but Kelly is doing a good job so far imo. It will be interesting to see how they look against a good offense though..

Without self-knowledge there is no individuality
Great write up, Steve. I agree completely with your points. Looking so much better, but still much room to grow to catch the elites. I feel Kelly is drawing the program and us fans closer, however.

You gonna do this for every team in the Mid-West
Our quarterback does front flips, suck it.
I've said numerous times that I think OSU, Michigan and ND have the right guys in place at head coach to get the Big Ten/Midwest back among the nation's elite. I love the way each program is recruiting and building their rosters. Tonight I singled out ND b/c they won a game I think most thought they'd lose.
Be a homer dude, don't tip toe.

We'll see if ND has an answer for Denard next week. They've done nothing close to containing him.
I think you will handle Michigan pretty easily.
If you say so.
Am I wrong?
The ND board is your home board. Just be a homer.
Ha, I don't understand why you're trying to come at me tonight b/c I posted a couple things I think are improvements at Notre Dame. Sorry I didn't love up your favorite team tonight. I've certainly acknowledged them a lot since Coach Hoke was hired.
I'm not a Michigan fan.
Pretty obvious I thought.
This is my home board. 247Sports signs my checks. National Writer here. Not going to apologize for ND being the first team I covered. I've moved on. You guys are cracking me up. I was just trying to talk football on our national board.
Just think you are looking for something that's not there. That's all.
So, training table,eh.. Is that where you usually meet coach Kelly for scheduled recruiting meatings?
I kid, I kid.
What you eat, don't make me shit.
Whoever you root for, you contributed nothing football related to this thread. You just tried to take a shot at me and I'm not sure why? You didn't need to comment at all.
Weak. Just own up.
I'm very surprised by the comments directed toward you. You made general observations about ND, that's it
Who is your squad? Legit question.
Just being a douche
