ND and Huskers Blog with now be running at http://ndgdn.wordpress.com/ so go follow us there and tell us what you think about the new blog
Every week I watch Notre Dame and every week I say the same thing, Notre Dame’s punt return game is God awful. This year as Notre Dame is ranked 119th in the country in average yard per punt return. We average a whopping 0.3 yards per return. We have 10 attempts but only have 3 yards to show for those 10 attempts. I’m sorry but John Goodman not a bad receiver but a absolutely horrible punt returner, I have no idea why he is back there? People say because he is sure handed, well I’m pretty sure he muffed a punt against Michigan St. and lucky for him the defense came up huge and had his back because that could have been a huge momentum changer. Notre Dame has a long of 13 yards on a punt return, so saying that when Notre Dame actually returns a punt (fair catches don’t count has an attempt) they usually lose yards, they don’t even get back to where they caught the ball and that is just bad, embarrassingly bad. I’m not putting this all in John Goodman either it’s not his fault, Theo Riddick has -2 yards on punt returns this year also, and the blocking probably isn’t what it should be. I remember seeing Floyd out there the other week to return a punt but I don’t really know if they would start putting him back there? Some of the guys I kinda would want to see get a few shots at it are Roby Toma he has been back there before back when he was wearing #84, Bennett Jackson, TJ Jones I’m sure he could get something going, Austin Collinsworth, maybe Deion Walker he really hasn’t been on the field much since he’s got to ND I know he did it in high school, Cam McDaniel, or George Atkinson III, these guys are all athletes I would like to see Toma and Jones In particular but really I want to see some new faces in the just see if any of these guys can get something going. Lets hope ND can get things going in the right direction starting this week against USC and have it become some what off a threat or something to make teams watch out for.
Notre Dame just got some pretty bad ass looking helmets in. They have some serious pop to them and everybody seems to be liking them especially the players. These are the real Notre Dame gold helmets these helmets are for real What a perfect time to get them in USC week baby, LETS GO IRISH!!!
