Keys to the Game – How to tell how the day will go
Today’s game vs. Pitt is a game that the Irish should run away with. If we are who we said we were then the dominance needs to start today. Pitt won’t be a push over but today isn’t about Pitt it is about Notre Dame. So here are our things to watch for in the game that will indicate how things are going.
- Big plays – The Irish have the talent advantage. It should show in this game
- New plays. If you see new wrinkles in the offense in this game it is a good sign that Kelly feels comfortable
- Another QB package for a 1/2 a series. See the reason above and the fact that the Irish have invested the time in a package in practice – why not use it?
- You can tell me who Pitt’s best player is by halftime.
- Pitt has all kinds of time to throw the ball. If ND can create a pass rush it will all fall down from there for Pittsburgh
- Multiple TOs from the offense. Don’t want to force coach’s hand again
Game day limerick time:
“Wake up! it’s time for Pitt,
to be on the bad end of some…stuff.
The Irish freight train is coming,
Rees, Wood, and Floyd’s cylinders humming,
and the defense will have Pitt on a spit.”
That is below and how good it is up to you! Let’s Go Irish!!
