With Dayne Crist in the game Notre Dame is 24 - 7. With Crist out Michigan is 21-0. Notre Dame wins that game if Crist doesn't go down.
Notre Dame had 535 yards of offense, made Michigan punt 10 times, and they still lost. I'm just saying.
NBC announced this week that Saturday's Notre Dame - Michigan game was the most-watched Irish-UM game on the network in 16 years with 7 millions viewers. (Win or lose, you've got to admit, it was one heck of a game. I definitely feel like I got my money's worth!!)
Tight End Kyle Rudolph's 8 catches for 164 yards vs. Michigan earn him the John Mackey Tight End of the week award.
Kelly at his presser today: "We'll play hard, we'll play physical, we'll play with great enthusiasm" at Michigan State. "We have to execute better." (Amen brother!)
And ... "ND practices Hail Marys every week." (Oh really?)
Okay, now onward to State. State. Grrrr. All that comes to mind when I think of State is that awful flag planting shenanigan that they pulled on us a few years back. Seriously?
So here's to our boys, giving 110% for 60 minutes on Saturday, and playing the best hard-nosed, smash-mouthed football of their lives!
ONWARD TO VICTORY!
GO IRISH! BEAT SPARTANS!
