Here Are The Positives From Win Over Duke...

 

 Here are the positives...

  1. We won the game
  2. Kyren Williams has balance, vision and some grit
  3. Mike Mayer will do things no other freshman has at TE
  4. Our defense is good
  5. Our special teams were quite special today 

 

Here's where we WILL improve going into game #2:

  1. Wide receivers and Book must get on same page
  2. OL needs to give Book time in the pocket
  3. First down play calling needs to be more imaginative

ND Statement: Holtz's Presidential Medal...


Statement from Paul J. Browne, vice president for public affairs and communications at the University of Notre Dame, on the announcement of Lou Holtz as a recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom:

“Lou Holtz is among America’s greatest college football coaches, leading Notre Dame to a national championship in 1988. But his contributions off the field have been equally inspiring, bringing attention and support to his hometown, alma mater, Catholic Charities, the Women’s Care Foundation, the Center for the Homeless in South Bend, and other worthy organizations through his charitable foundation. At Notre Dame, he and his late wife, Beth, served as research ambassadors, and the players he molded have added to his legacy through their own contributions through the Lou’s Lads Foundation. We presented Lou with an honorary degree in 2011 for his service on and off the field to Notre Dame and beyond, and we join now with his family and many friends in offering our sincere congratulations on this honor.”
