Default Dink and Dunk

Defense played good enough to win. Feel bad for the offense personnel. We got lucky they turned the ball over inside the 5 yard line and handed us a TD. Our offensive personnel deserves a tougher scheme and a tougher coaching staff. This is Kelly ball and has no resemblance to what made Notre Dame great through out the years of our greatness. All the people who have never witnessed Notre Dame greatness will be satisfied with this loss. It's bullshit. This looks nothing like what Notre Dame greatness looks like. It's simply another loss inn a string of losses that is another data point proving we can't beat the big boys. Our players deserve better. It's a weak scheme that lacks discipline.

Spot on. I know we are weak at RB this year, but you have to be able to run the ball to control the game. I did not enjoy the close loss. Close or blown out, we are not where we want to be if it's not a W.

I didnít enjoy it, but itís easier to stomach knowing they stood toe to toe with UGA on the road. Itís not a moral victory, but you canít be too upset.

Not upset, used to Lucy pulling the ball. This offense is putrid and lacks a identity.

I thought it was a great offensive game plan.
Georgia has so much more overall talent than ND.
The game just changed with the Finke bobble/ interception. If he catches that ball the game would have been different.
I enjoyed seeing defensive players maintains position and making tackles.
A few penalties, a catch, different outcome.
Yes ND lost. But Georgia should have won by more. ND was prepared, had a good plan. Just gotta execute.

Without the penalties and other bonehead errors we would have won.

UGA is, overall, bigger, faster, stronger. They recruit bigger, faster, stronger players. Fromm is better than Book by miles.

Regarding tougher schemes, I have to disagree. Alabama has gone away from power football; Clemson never ran it. They have better athletes. Period.

Even if Finke caught the ball, I don't think we would've scored in the third the way we were going offensively.

If, if, if, if. The story of the Kelly era. He can't close, because he never establishes any physical dominance and never has momentum going into the 4th quarter against elite teams.. A different outcome? For **** sakes. It's never going to be a different outcome. He can't close. Ten years ****ing in. He cannot close. It's who he is and what he will be remembered for.

We need a better QB and some more weapons. Guys like the incoming freshman class receivers and RB.

How would we know? Kelly never even tried to establish the run. The entire game plan was Book dink and dunking.

Kelly isn't going to recruit his way into being elite. He's 10 years in. His legacy is cast in stone.

Players gotta execute.
They didnít.
Motion penalties are all Kellyís fault.
Finke bobbling the ball is Kellyís fault.
Nope.
Make the plays.
It was a good game plan.
They looked well-coached.
From a recruiting perspective ND should have lost by 20.
Kelly has this team playing at a high level.
Players gotta make plays.

The 3rd quarter crap fest had nothing to do with play calling? The first half was okay, but the second the coaches laid an egg.

And without Ga giving us a TD, it might not have been close. We lost. Again. No excuses. It is who we are. We always find a way to lose against top teams. It is Kelly's legacy

We know by the body of work that we've seen. I don't fault Kelly for not trying to run. It was obvious that UGA's defensive line was quicker than ND's offensive line.

I guess they could have run the ball and had more 2nd and 14s, but Kelly, as dumb as some think he is, is smart enough to know running is a losing proposition. He's often not smart enough to know when to continue running. That's a different discussion.

Book had to dink and dunk. UGA's secondary is really fast; NDs receivers are not. Book did not have a lot of time (in general).

In short, UGA had some room for error and ND did not.

Bull ****ing ****. This is Kelly's legacy. You can change the offensive players, change the OC and it's the same bullshit. The buck stops with Kelly. It is who he is and his legacy is cast in stone.

Maybe Georgia has a good head coach and D-coordinator?
Maybe Georgia has 11 five star recruits while ND has 1?
Maybe ND players make some plays and quit making penalties?

Maybe.

Catch the ball.
Don’t move until the ball is snapped.
Know the snap count.
Don’t center the ball until you’re supposed to.

Haha Kelly out-coached Kirby all game. Talent overcame. Yíall are ridiculous. Same people thinking Harbaugh is a better coach.You know Tennessee recruits better than ND right? Texas? UCLA? We can play this game, fact is we were up against a 3rd, 2nd and 3rd ranked class versus > 10 and maybe should have won.

Maybe we should be able to run for more than 46 yards and get in 3rd and short situations , instead of dink and dunking to consistent 3rd and long situations, with a 3rd down pass that doesn't even reach the first down marker. Pitiful coaching and scheme. Kelly's a big game failure for this very reason. It's a **** scheme.

That was the best offensive game plan I have seen in awhile. We donít have a run game, itís clear. Georgia knew it, they adapted and ran the best game plan to win the game, fell short. Itís funny, I was reading the GA forums and they say Book is amazing and Fromm was average. They said with no run game it was amazing what he was able to accomplish. GA fans giving more props to this team then our own fans smh at this board. This was a fn great game!
