Notre Dame Football Gameday – South Florida 9/3/2011

It is Gameday guys and girls!  We are hoping to fill the void left by Blue-Gray Sky going away by proving the Irish faithful a place for a gameday thread.  So I want to give you a few quick keys to the game, a limerick, and the rest will be provided by you.

Keys to the Game – How to tell how the day will go

This being the first game, it will help to set the tone for the entire season.  Below are some things to look for to help judge how the Irish will fair today and what may turn out to be good signs for the rest of the season.

The Good

  • The Irish to come out at the start of the game like a runaway freight train.
  • South Florida looking average to slow-of-foot (South Florida is a fast team and if can make them seem average it is a good sign the Irish are dictating the pace of the game)
  • Big holes in the run game
  • The defensive puts pressure on the QB

The Bad

  • Short drives on offense (more than one three and out in the first half will spell bad news)
  • A disproportionate amount of passes vs. runs
  • The inability to contain the Bulls

    Looking forward to this game! The campus has been buzzing all week. My player to watch today is maybe an obvious one but it is Michael Floyd.

    Go Irish!

  2. LetsGoIrish

    I know a lot of people are stopping in before the game. Feel free to leave your “Player to watch” player’s name

    @CT I would love to see Riddick go off today. Last year everyone was drooling over what we heard in practice. Would LOVE to see that play out on the field. jim masterson What do you think Jim?

    Did not notice that you already mentioned FLoyd below. I think Holtz will make stopping the running game a high priority – like his hold man. And this will open up the home run plays to Floyd and Riddick. Again – I think the Nevada season opener may be the template for this game.

  6. JohnRockwell

    Cierre Wood.

  7. OC Irish

    Theo Riddick and, hey, why not – Eifert. Go Irish!

    Was at the game. Watching the second half from home. Reese is in the game and I question Kelly, not for putting Reese in, that is his prerogative, but for how he handles himself on the sideline.

  9. LetsGoIrish

    Second half so far so good no fatalities yet

  10. LetsGoIrish

    Nice. First down Irish

  11. LetsGoIrish

    Yeah baby…why weren’t we getting Floyd the ball in the first half?

  12. LetsGoIrish

    Yeah baby…why weren’t we getting Floyd the ball in the first half?

  13. LetsGoIrish

    D is holding strong…back to the grind boys

  14. LetsGoIrish

    NICE!! Here we go

  15. LetsGoIrish

    Rees is the better QB right now

  16. LetsGoIrish

    Here come the Irish. I bet it is bananas in the stadium right now

  17. LetsGoIrish

    Still an eternity of time left in this game.

  18. LetsGoIrish

    I LOVE how Blanton plays…the most under used DB for the last three years IMO

  19. LetsGoIrish

    Wow night and day difference.

  20. LetsGoIrish

    Rees’s pre-snap reads are solid

  21. LetsGoIrish

    Throw it here and then kick it if you don’t make it

  22. LetsGoIrish

    Wow. Amazing. Talking about making it easy. South Florida couldn’t ask for more breaks.

  23. LetsGoIrish

    I give it a 50-50 chance from here. By the way, it looks like there is more rain coming

  24. LetsGoIrish

    Keep your heads lads…just keep your head. Still a lot of time left.

  25. LetsGoIrish

    Tremendous play by Fleming knocking that down.

  26. LetsGoIrish

    Seems like a blown coverage there, too many guys in the same area.

  27. LetsGoIrish

    Not good. USF Is no joke

  28. LetsGoIrish

    No matter what happens here it remains a two possession game.

  29. LetsGoIrish

    Though a field goal would be much preferred.

  30. LetsGoIrish

    Big conversion there.

  31. LetsGoIrish

    Doing this open thread, now I know what God felt like before he created man

  32. LetsGoIrish

    Floyd is in beast mode right now

  33. LetsGoIrish

    I don’t like that play call even if he does catch that

  34. LetsGoIrish

    Tommy Rees is a testament to not knowing which recruit is going to pan out.

  35. LetsGoIrish

    Game over. Not sure I could have scripted a worse game.

  36. Grirish

    Wow, that had to be the worst game I have seen. Nothing was going the Irish’s way today. Let hope these guys get their heads out of their rears and beat the snot out of Michigan.
