    I'm thinking ND depending on the health of the QB and RB. Any news on their injuries?

    They are a physical team....if you haven't seen them they wear you down.

    IMO, this is going to be better than I anticipated. I watched Miami play a full game for the first time this season last Saturday. Their defense really impressed me; lots of defensive speed too. If Rozier has a decent game and cuts down on his interceptions, they have a good chance to win. The tougher the game is for Rozier, the better the chances are for Notre Dame.

    Regardless of who wins, I think that the margin will be close. Can’t wait to watch it. I’m having trouble with making a pick right now.

    They have the best O line in college football. At least based on what I've seen so far.

    I think the big thing for Miami is causing turnovers. They have a ton of speed, but they aren't going to get a pass rush and if the ND O line can get to the second level running the ball like they have most of the year, it will be very tough. ND doesn't turn the ball over and a lot of what Miami does well is force mistakes with their speed. I just think it's a bad matchup for Miami even though I was impressed with how they dominated VT.

    I think that turnovers will be big for Miami if they can get them, which is possible with their speed. No question about Notre Dame’s OL being a beast.

    I'm not sure how Miami is going to get the turnovers unless they can stop the run and force ND into some obvious passing downs. I just don't see it.

    Richt has done a phenominal job down there.

    I'm not sure they are quite there, but I definitely think they will challenge for a title next year.

    On a side note, is that Frederick the Assistant Coach at CovCath?
