    There's going to be a ton of lining up with two backs and two TEs and motioning into the slot

    We're going to be running a lot of routes where Buchner is going to have two reads than throw it away. Even if Diggs isn't healthy, I think we will line him up in the slot for a few decoy routes and tell him not to get touched

    yes it’s going to really hamstring the offense I think which is a shame

    I don't know how, but surely we can find a way to blame VanGorder for the WR depth

    Not taking at least one transfer WR is insanely bad roster management.

    pure incompetence

    Would like to know what Freeman was thinking doing nothing in the portal knowing they had no depth at WR. Relying on injured guys like Davis and Wilkins to come back was always a recipe for disaster.

    They did try to get some transfer WRs, didn’t they? Not saying that is any better bc I don’t even think they got anyone to visit. I’m still shocked they brought in no one

    I still think the portal is an issue for ND because players transferring for playing time usually
    a dont have the grades to get in
    or
    b Dont want to play school

    Yeah it’s almost always going to be grad student transfers coming in for ND. Undergrad transfers are not in the cards with the rare exception at this point

    lol not at all

    Wanted him to be the guy after Kelly left and he's done great in recruiting.

    I just think he screwed up by not finding a way to add some depth at WR during the offseason.

    Eh. I don’t accept that as an excuse for not being able to find someone that would rank somewhere between Ben Skowronek and Freddie Canteen. There are hundreds of players that fit that profile - finding one that is interested in competing for meaningful playing time on a top 10 team should be pretty easy.

    Seems it was reported they weren't looking for "just a guy" they wanted someone that would make an impact

    Mfers we just need warm bodies at WR

    Try blaming Del and BK for the WR room being ultra thin.

    The current WR room is 80% a BK/Del problem.

    20% on Freeman/Rees because it’s inexcusable we didn’t get anyone - even if just a body - from the Transfer Portal.

    Its wild we got that Harvard transfer at DT whose now like the 7th or 8th best DL in a group where we have like 10 guys that can play and didn't think "hmm we need someone who can be our 4th best WR who can maybe step up and be our 3rd if someone goes down." There were probably 7-8 guys like that in the portal that would jump at an ND masters degree and playing time on national TV every week

    Also really sucks that CJ Williams would have played against OSU

    I think Jac will be ok, he has been ok to good on the USFL games I've caught, hopefully he leans into being an ND guy some.

    Garrett is likely a 1 year try out for NFL stuff, either he'll be good and no one minds or he sucks and gets replaced.

    enough with the tryouts, if nbc does not take this seriously notre dame should definitely seek a contract with a company that will take the production seriously.

    The problem with Jac is it feels inevitable he’ll be the guy long term as long as he isn’t completely awful. And he’ll be close to awful.

    horrible. may listen to the games with sound off. I'd rather have a rotating cast of former players without broadcasting experience than this combo of dinguses.

    Golden Tate & Kapron Lewis-Moore. Instantly 100x better

    like, we're in an era of unprecedented upheaval in TV rights and streaming and you're fighting for your piece of the pie as your contract is about to be up, and the best you can come up with is this? Criminally uninspired.

    I'd be cool with it if Jac seemed like a cool/interesting guy like Mike Golic Jr because after graduating from ND, you really learn how ND and nepotism kind of go hand in hand. But he seems like he kinda sucks, always struck me as pretentious and stale. And now he's gonna be ND's lead announcer for like 30 years
