    Notre Dame Fighting Irish

    2009- Started the season pretty well winning their first 5 games but once agains lose to USC. After losing a close one to Navy, the season went spinning down the toilet going on a 4 game losing streak to Pitt, UConn, and Stanford. Golden Tate and Jimmy Clausen just couldn't make the plays when they needed them most. JR RB Armando Allen had a good year with 142 carries 697 yards and 3 TDs

    What to watch for- Kyle Rudolph, Michael Floyd, and Dayne Crist. Showing great leadership during the preseason, will Crist continue the passing attack behind the shadow of Jimmy Clausen? Crist didn't get many snaps last year only passing for 130 yards 1 TD and 1INT. It should be interesting to see how he handles the pressure and if he can win the big games. The 6-3 220lb JR WR Michael Floyd is poised to have a big season by getting more passes thrown his way with the departure of Golden Tate. The biggest offensive threat for Notre Dame is JR TE Rudolph. With such great hands, large frame and speed there will be a lot of mismatches against the majority of defenses. If Notre Dame can utilize the ability of Rudolph they can be a big offensive threat.

    The Freshamn OLB Manti Te'o is showing a leadership role alread for the Fighting Irish. This offseason Te'o has gotten bigger and faster. It will be interesting how he develops as the season goes by. He could be the best defensive player for this team.
