    Notre Dame is back on top and ranked # 1 in the nation. Coach not to rehash old memories but how were you guys able to upset tOSU and how did that success carry over to this season?


    Who are the leaders on this team?


    Is another national championship a real possibility for the people of South bend?

    The BCS Championship game against Ohio State will go down as one of the all time classics. We were able to win because we stuck to the game plan: be balanced on offense and try to confuse Pryor with disguised coverages on defense.

    But that game is in the past. Our team is totally focused on this season.



    Who are the leaders on this team?

    There are many. Dayne Crist has come into his own at the QB position. He brought us back from the brink against Cal. Also Deion Walker and Shaquelle Evans are serious playmakers on the edge. On defense All-American Manti Teo leads an outstanding linebacker corps.


    Is another national championship a real possibility for the people of South bend?

    We really are not focused on the "national championship" so to speak as much as we are playing our best each week. That being said, we will know where this team stands after weeks 4-5 when rivals Michigan and USC roll into South Bend.

    The mood? Elated! The Student body was so ready to exorcise Notre Dame's USC demons that they partied until Tuesday (and that's saying something for ND).

    Last year USC's zone scheme gave us a lot of problems both in the pass and run game. Their athletic LBs were able to stop the run while staying in zone. The play action was a huge part of the gameplan. We needed a way to create holes in the zone coverage.

    Our goal as an offense is to maintain balance to the point where the defense is guessing pass or run. So far this year we have been able to expose defenses with the play action on first down and 3rd and short.


    Another BCS Title???????

    Next question.

    Thanks dog. I had to lol at those myself. The best is that I googled "Notre Dame students drinking" and that is what I get. Priceless.

    ND continues to romp. it is inevitable that you repeat as BCS champion, right coach?

    How are you doing on the recruiting trail?

    We've had another great season, but nothing is inevitable. In order for us to win we have to come out focused and ready to play each week.

    How are you doing on the recruiting trail?

    Recruiting has really taken off this year. We have landed both the top rated QB and RB in this year's class. Last year recruiting analysts referred to ND as 4 star U, since the Irish did not land any of the very best prospects. This class ensures that we will have a chance to compete for years to come.
