Headbutts And Groin Kicks… Fredo Style

October 12, 2007
  • Irish Secondary. This will be the toughest challenge these boys will face in the air ALL year. Expect to see a lot of substitutions with the corners in nickel, dime, and penny packages. David Bruton in particular will be key in trying to stop this air assault. I think he stands up to the task and has a coming out party.
  • David Bruton. A 2nd one for the greatest gunner on special teams in the history of life. Knock some dicks in the dirt.
  • Eric Olsen. He takes over the starting spot at guard over an AWOL Matt Carufel.
  • Mo Crum. A repeat performance would be nice.
  • Pat Kuntz. Kerry Neal. Starting Defense, place at the table…

Groin Kicks

  • Super Fans. Seriously. We are not UMass.
  • Jaghjguyfbyerbdski. A harder name to spell than Samardzija. That deserves a swift kick.
  • Matt Ryan. Your tombstone has already been written.
  • Tribble and Silva. I have nothing on you but I’m going to kick you in the nuts anyways.
  • And this ND student that ESPN dug up twice now to comment. WTF. He may be the biggest tool…ever. WARNING: Watch the following video with caution as it may cause you to gouge out your eyes and stab your ears with a shovel…

Eagle Eulogy

October 11, 2007
Nothing but Champs Sports Bowl bound. IU will bury you for good.

It’s been a good run for Boston College this year. 6-0 for the first time since, well, forever ago. And a big congratulations is due to those mighty Eagles for their incredibly challenging first half of the season. Tough victories over Bowling Green, Army, UMass (1-AA), North Carolina State, Wake Forrest, and Georgia Tech has left BC in position to make a national statement. Ranked #4 in the country and heading to “rival” Notre Dame for the not so annual Frank Leahy Bowl/Ireland Trophy Game the Eagles are riding high.

And then the rug gets pulled out from under your feet.

Boston College realizes that despite all their efforts of cupcake scheduling, conference jumping(no loyalty), and an advertising campaign for the ridiculously over-hyped QB Matt Ryan complete with blowjobs from Doug “Is My Mullett Making A Comeback” Flutie, you are who you are. Granted this is still Notre Dame BC is playing, the Godfather, of college football. And here you are… Fredo. The runt of the litter. The backstabber. The weasel. Skunkbears in training. You are… nothing. Not even a hint of respect will you receive from the Irish faithful. All the hopes and dreams will cease and only visions of a conference championship from a conference of cellar dwellers will be left. And in the end, even that dream will crash. Yes the season is over for you now and perhaps this is all you will ever be. 8-4, 9-3, or whatever mediocre record you will accomplish will be all that you can attain.

What a difference a win makes. It’s been hard trying to pick apart the win over UCLA so I am going to refrain from doing so. The defense played like a bunch of wild animals. That was awesome watching us bring the house and take out the UCLA quarterback. That poor bastard didn’t stand a chance. I really can’t complain about much from the game. One thing did bother me though, Claussen’s accuracy throwing the long ball. I know, I know, he’s a true freshman.
Does anyone remember the most recent true freshman to lead the Irish offense? I caught the BC game from 2003 on ESPN Classic the other day and was amazed at how Quinn ran Willingham’s infamous “Three and Out” offense. Watching that game I could see how much he improved throughout the years.
I have to give mad props to Mitch for allowing me to watch the game at his house. I’m not into the HDTV shit. Give me ESPN, SNY and West Wing reruns and I’m good.
In other news, I ran across an interesting quote from writer Pat Forde. In his weekly column titled “The Forde Yard Dash” he led off last week stating “People in New York are attributing the Mets collapse to shoddy recruiting by Ty Willingham”. I paraphrased it, but it hit home being a Mets and Irish fan.
Until next week……

Headbutts And Groin Kicks Post Bruin Beatdown

October 8, 2007
  • Mo Crum. If you saw the game there really isn’t anything more I could say that would put into perspective how huge he played. Lights out.
  • Brandon Walker. 48 yard field goals? Since when do we make those? October 6th 2007.
  • Zibby and Laws. One hit sealed the game.
  • Kerry Neal and Brian Smith. Pressure. These two are really becoming a force on the outside.
  • Clausen. No turnovers versus a very good UCLA “D”

Groin Kicks

  • Bruce Davis. You lost. Now shut the fuck up.
  • Dan Fouts. You mess up every play call with something, whether it be a name, a play, or confusing UCLA’s black coordinator with ND’s and calling him Corwin Brown. (Racist) I’m sure this kick in the nuts will not phase him as Danny boy lost his nuts years ago to Keith Jackson in a bet. (Who was the worst college talking head… ever)
  • Boston College. I can already hear the Super Dicks talking shit.
  • Anyone who has ever had a penalty called on a Zibby punt return. Please stop. We need his yards.
  • Subway Domer. Yes me. I have to kick myself in the nuts for the coverage this past week. Horrendous. I was doing a live blog during the game (forgot to mention it to anyone) and then stopped as I can never sit still during an Irish game. I cuss, I pace, and generally I headbutt all who cross my path… sorry mom.

Condensed Rose Soup

Here is a condensed version of the game from our “friends” at ESPN. I will have Headbutts and Groin Kicks in a bit.

Hell Yes!!!!

The Irish are almost half way through the season and a lot of questions are still hanging in the wind. There are a few things we do know, and if you didn’t… now is your chance.

  1. This offense has no identity. From Georgia Tech and up to Purdue this offense has lacked any form of an identity to fall back on. Are we a spread team, are we a power team, or or we pass happy finesse? It doesn’t really matter as much as what we identify with, just that we would become something. Weis has always made the offensive gameplan around the other teams weaknesses. That’s great, but you need to know what the hell you are doing before we can gameplan like that.
  2. This season sucks. Quite simple really. We have not seen this horrible of a showing in a long time in South Bend. The best thing to come of this season is the experience it give to the young talent that is there. Playing time for these youngsters is crucial to the development of the future. The bad taste in all of our mouths (players, coaches, and fans) should turn to sweet morsels of awesomeness. Suck it up people.
  3. There is still hope this year. 7 games remain and if we win six we will go to a bowl. No matter what the cynics say, we WILL win our last 4 games. What is unsure and honestly quite bleak, is if the Irish can pull 2 out of 3 on UCLA, Backup College, and USC. International Bowl, here we come. At the beginning of the year I scoffed at the idea of playing in this low level game, but as this train wreck season rolls on, I realize the importance of making it to any bowl. The extra practice it allows is critical to the development of the team and provides a solid foundation to build on in the spring.
  4. Willingham is a dick. Mike Farrell wrote a good article on Ty and his recruiting efforts at ND. The media is trying to bash ND at all costs and at the risk of being totally biased against Her Loyal Sons. Poor Ty. What no one mentions, is that he wanted out and was paid quite nicely by the University to do so.
  5. The defense is still questionable. Although the Irish have improved on their pass defense, stopping the run has been a huge disappointment. I truly believe that Corwin Brown is changing the culture of this unit, but is still missing a few pieces. They have not had any favors from the offense as they have been constantly left with their backs against the wall with poor field position.
  6. Young talent is here and more is on the way. Look at the starting lineups each week (and the subs with different personnel groupings) and you will see a team loaded with freshman and sophomores. Most of these players are seeing their first real minutes in college and need more time to develop. But we HAVE talent none the less. The Irish have the #1 recruiting class in the nation according to Scout and Rivals for the incoming class of 2008. The Irish WILL be back to elite status… but it may take until 2009 to reap those rewards for great recruiting on the part of Weis and his staff. Need more proof? Look here.
  7. The schedule has done the Irish no favors. This was a suicide mission from the start. So much discussion was going on this summer about Kevin White and his scheduling practices for the future. A lot of blogs and websites were bashing White to death about how easy the schedule is becoming in future years. I think we all would of took that kind of schedule this year. If you look at the next 2 years schedule, you will notice how the front end is lightened up a bit as far as not playing 4 out of your first 6 on the road. At least he has it right with playing San Diego St. in 2008 and Nevada in 2009 as the season openers…at home. EVERY major school opens this way and allows themselves some room for error as they iron out the wrinkles for the season. I’ll take it. At least it isn’t a 1-AA opponent.

Those are just a few insight into this season and a few nuggets to look forward to in the coming years. And just to leave you with a laugh (after all we have gone through this season we NEED to laugh) here is a video I found that should have been used Michigan State week.
