If we have today's play calling or run/pass ratio we lose two

Games at most. I hope the lesson was learned.

We thought that lesson was learned in 2012 *

With a simpler game plan we can play faster. I think this

may have been the fastest his ND offense has played...

I don't have any stats to support it, but I don't think the play clock was ever an issue...


Except for the first play of game. *

basically just blamed the losses this year on a couple of missed kicks...He said today ND made the kick...don't think he learned any lesson. Its a shame because I agree with you. He should be recruiting a few more RBs too.


Really like Prosise carrying the seed....Good speed... *

With the caveat that that's how we practice.

My suspicion is that Golson's shoulder is still gimpy. His out pattern throws were very pedestrian for him and his normal arm strength. I think Kelly obviously knew that and focused on running the ball in the bowl game prep and named Zaire the starter because he's a much better option for that kind of game, the same way Hendrix was a few years ago.

I just don't think Kelly is used to having the raw talent at OL to run over people. Hopefully, the seemingly serendipitous running of the ball down the throat of the SECs best defense will spark something, but we'll have to wait and see.


I'm hopeful, but not particularly optimistic.

I'm really hoping this wasn't a game plan of necessity by Kelly. If he thinks he just needs time to develop Zaire as a passer to implement his full system, it will be bad.

I am wary of backsliding. Battered wife ND fan I suppose.


Of course it was a game plan of necessity

He explicitly said that. As was every game of 2012. That's when he wins at ND, when he's limited and has to have a balanced offense.

That said, it was a great game plan and I and I loved every second of it. Beating an SEC team while dominating the line and TOP is a very good thing.


His problem is he should have realized he needed to protect
