    And your new DC is historically a slow starter.

    You guys will win, and likely by two scores, but I think we challenge that line for sure. Something like 38-24.

    I'm not sure, but his daughter stayed in a boarding house less than a mile from where I live now that is now the location of Mount Notre Dame High School. She was there as the confederate general John Hunt Morgan and his raiders rode right past the place not knowing who was there.

    There's your fun Sherman fact for the evening.

    The issue with our defense is whether the young guys from 2021 improve to 2022, and having competent coaching.

    We started a true freshman as our CB1 (Burke) and he was really good in 2021. If he becomes a lockdown guy in 2022, I don’t see your WR corps as deep enough to hit away from him.

    Also, the other starter at CB returns (Brown), along with a starting safety (Hickman), a 2021 starter lost for that year with injury at safety (Proctor), and a transfer starter from Okla State at safety (McCallister).

    The secondary is solid.

    On the DL, we have three 2021 true freshmen who either will be starting or will split significant snaps at DT (Williams), DE Tuimoloau, and DE (Sawyer). Williams was second on the team in sacks in 2021 and the DEs were top-10 overall recruits who played well.

    Linebacker is a huge concern with me, but everyone else on our side seems fine with the returning starters.

    On paper, we should be a lot better than we have been.

    I'm hearing there is an absence of leadership in the OSU locker room. Some strife over certain captains being named and not others. Lots of hurt feelings.

    With the Avery Dennis injury, what is the situation at skill positions? Is it:

    QB Buchner
    WR Styles
    WR Lenzy
    WR ?

    You guys saw the defensive scheme run by our new DC Knowles in your bowl game. None of us have any real idea how that looks here with our personnel until we see it.

    It’s kind of shocking that Notre Dame attempted 68 passes the last time you saw this scheme.

    I don’t know how much can be taken from our 2021 failures on defense, given the overhaul of staff, but our aggregate rush defense numbers are masked by a few great games and then terrible ones.

    Overall, the aggregate numbers on the season look good because we had a 9 game stretch from 9/18 to 11/20 where we held every opponent under 113 yards rushing.

    Minnesota, Oregon, Michigan and Utah all went over 200. We were a bad rush defense against good running teams with the exception of MSU who had to abandon the run because we had 49 points at half.

    Our OL was incapable of establishing the LOS in the run game last year.

    That has supposedly flipped 180 since Harry Hiestand’s return.

    The Oregon and Utah numbers are pumped up by a long rush TD in each game, but we really didn’t stop the run aside from the long ones anyway.

    Michigan dominated us up front. No way to sugar coat that.

    i personally take very little from it. it has less to do with them thinking it's osu's weakness as opposed to nd's strength. coan was a statue and the offense was incredibly one dimensional. they're going to do something totally different with buchner imo

    Bowl game results usually do not matter at all

    ND had opt outs, a bunch of injuries, and half a coaching staff vs Okie State it was a bizarre game almost as bizarre as checks notes the Rose Bowl
