The Hurricanes of old who came out with a thug & swagger mentality were no where to be found this past Saturday as Notre Dame dominated the Miami Hurricanes by a score of 41-3 at Soldier Field in Chicago, Ill.

So much for the Catholics versus Convicts rivalry that we knew and loved in the late 1980′s, early 90′s.

Notre Dame finally had it’s first 100-yard rushing game by two of it’s running backs, Cierre Wood and George Atkinson III (after Theo Riddick and George Atkinson III came a yard shy of this accomplishment at the season opening game against Navy). This was the first 100-yard rushing duo that Notre Dame has had in a decade.

The dreaded quarterback merry-go-round also returned with Coach Brian Kelly starting Tommy Rees, as a result of Everett Golson having a minor team violation (punishment for showing up late for practice). This was followed by Golson coming off the bench to play the majority of the game, and was finished with Rees returning once again at the end of the night. The Notre Dame fans are still unsure from week to week as to who the leader of their team will be. Hopefully, as Golson gets more and more playing time under his belt, he will become the sole heir of the leading quarterback role.
