11 posts in this topic

I know ND haters are going to be Haters but still no one can take away what this team has done this year. and todays game i think came very close to giving me a heart attack. but we have not played well at home this year and fair better on the road which means alot concidering there is not a single bowl game in south bend. Pitt may not be ranked but they were a trap game and they have played us tough the last 4 or 5 years and had won 2 of the last 3 (before todays game) in southbend. in the end an ugly win is a win. 9-0 and prob wont stay number 3 in the BCS pole but thats fine, im not expecting a championship this year, just a BCS bowl game. still i tip my hat to Pitt. they didnt back down and did not show fear in playing againt a number 3 team and fought very hard until the end.

scary thought is 1993 is starting to flash through my head right now!!! we beat number 1 FSU just to turn around and lose to Boston College the next weekend.....and who do we got next weekend???? Boston College lol.

Omg...that was torture. I can't believe they pulled that off. On the bright side it should bring the team closer together. I could be wrong but I don't think any of the other undefeateds have had to reach down deep for a close game. Mike Mayock said this stuff happens for teams of destiny. =)

yeah but youngstown st also did not just come off a major road victory against OU. this was a trap game for ND because of just that. and they havent been that good at home this year anyway. they have been far more impressive away from south bend. and good thing about that is, no bowl game is in south bend lol

alot of people dont want to understand this was a trap game for ND. they just got done beating OU 30-13 they were bound to have a rough game. hopefully they got it out of their system and they take these next two against Boston college and Wake Forest alot easier then todays game. im also shocked USC is hanging with Oregon right now. i wont be surprised if Oregon loses, just like last year.

No, now you are totally wrong... EVERYONE seen this as being a "trap" game... and the GREAT TEAMS DRILL the trap team.

ND is just a very good team. Pitt totally imploded in this game.

ND has very little room for error.

ND was outplayed,... Mayock even said it.

Gift....

USC was the preseason No 1, with a great QB, great offense, and Oregon just chewed up their defense, so its no surprise that SC was hanging with Oregon If not for the last second gimme TD, it would have been exactly as I predicted..17 points. ND is a very good team, and had a let down week, but I don't even think Bama can stop the Ducks offense. With 2 out of the next 3 games, against top 20 teams, (Stanford and Oregon State). If Oregon can win those games and stay undefeated, they should be #2 by the end of the year..Number 1 if LSU can hold onto their lead with 10 minutes left.

Gonna be an interesting next few weeks in college football...

(Imagine the offensive shootout if its K-State and Oregon in the BCS championship..)

how do you figure??? ND missed a fg and an extra point and if those were made the game would have been over in regulation with the final score 24-20. if anything a gift was handed to pitt and they couldnt finish out.

    • Right now, maybe half of the top 15 (or so) interior defensive lineman are 6'1 or less and about 300 lbs or less and arm lenght of around 32 inches (Donald, Atkins, Casey, Daniels, Jarrett/Kyle Williams). Only Donald was a day one 1 pick or drafted in the first two rounds. Casey went in the 3rd round. No one else was picked in the top 100. I don't think there is an other position were so many top players share similar trait and most of them were picked late in the draft.   Are teams that afraid of having a small team that they automatically give worse grade for smaller defensive lineman? If Aaron Donald, for example, had Geno Atkins besides him instead of Michael Brockers, would that line be as effective as one would expect just from the player talent level upgrade from Brockers to Atkins or even worse? I mean, Brockers is a good player but Atkins is on another level. And individually these players are great but would they work as well together on the same line? Not sure if it's as much about the size itself as these players can use it to their advantage in quickness and leverage but maybe two dlineman with short arms would create some issues?   Just wondering why so many of them have fallen late in the draft. I understand that some teams want bigger, physical players (like BB, Parcells etc) but what about those teams that had already gotten steals later in the draft with small interior lineman would jump at the chance to select a player who had great tape and showed similar traits as their best defensive player. Like Grady Jarrett in 2015. Both the Bengals and Titans drafted a dlinemen in the 4th, Jarrett went with first pick in the 5th round Bengals pick was actually two picks before Jarrett was taken.   Though the Bengals did take Billings last year and he might be next to Atkins but he was another 4th round pick. And Titans did draft Mike Martin to be their nose tackle a year after taking Casey but he didn't pan out. And I maybe haven't looked at closely enough at bust/success rate for smaller defensive lineman so these guys could be sort of outliers and teams just missed on these guys for other reasons.    
    • Also for retrospect on this list: Dan Marino--Mark Clayton & Jim Kelly--Andre Reed were snubbed.  Can you think of others that should be on here in place of someone else?
    • http://newarena.com/nfl/ranked-the-top-24-qb-wr-duos-of-all-time/7/?amxt=fbdesktop2   11. Peyton Manning/Reggie Wayne: Indianapolis Colts   In the post Marvin Harrison era, Wayne took the torch as being Manning’s go-to target. During his 14-year career with the Colts, Wayne had eight seasons with at least 1,000 yards receiving. He also managed to haul in 82 touchdowns during this time period. Manning’s resume has been chronicled ad nauseam. He is the all-time leader in passing yards (71,940), and is consistently mentioned as one of the best to ever throw a football in the history of the sport.   2. Peyton Manning/Marvin Harrison: Indianapolis Colts   The respective skill-sets of Manning and Harrison worked perfectly with one another. Manning’s unbelievable timing on throws was predicated greatly by Harrison’s ability to separate in coverage. One of the best technical receivers in league history, Harrison’s route-running capabilities led him to become an 8-time Pro Bowler and a 3-time First-team All-Pro. He also led the league in receiving yards twice with Manning under center. 114 of Manning’s 539 touchdowns throws went to Harrison. This statistic is simply mind-boggling — and further validates a top-three standing.   ( Jerry Rice also got mentioned 2 times.  #3 with Steve Young, and #1 with Joe Montana.)
    • A passing league now. You could say the same of probably 10 other WRs in the league right now. Marv did it in a very different league.    Not taking away from it, he's a Pro Bowl player.
    • This is why you need a well rounded team.  No matter how good 1,2, or 5 players play, it takes an entire team to win games.  Every aspect of the team thrives or wither off the success AND failures of other aspects.

    •   Sorry to keep harping on the Irish thing, but did you know the horseshoe has seven points on it?  (The Colts horseshoe, anyway.  Actual shoes for horses depend on the farrier).   Seven is considered a lucky number...  Lucky.  Luck.  I'm telling you, you picked the right team to root for.   7    
    •   Don't hold Boston against the Irish.  It's not our fault.    We love our green, which makes Indiana a tearmann.   I love it that you chose to root for an underdog instead of the Pats.  I don't think it's coincidence that you became a fan around the time Luck got drafted to the Colts.  That's providence.     Horseshoe?  Luck?  Four-leaf clover?  Come on.  Hoosier Hospitality has roots in Irish fun-lovery.  If you're lucky enough to be Irish, you're lucky enough!  May the luck of the Irish be with you!
