    Penn St has a pretty good group on the defensive side as well. If that was Charlie's logic, I don't think he'd be starting this game either.

    Just wondering.

    If he can have as much success as ND's last ***Word Filter Violation - Edit Your Post******Word Filter Violation - Edit Your Post******Word Filter Violation - Edit Your Post******Word Filter Violation - Edit Your Post******Word Filter Violation - Edit Your Post******Word Filter Violation - Edit Your Post*** QB, he can spike his hair and ride in limos all he wants.

    I am glad that Jimmy will be starting but kind of worried as well, that line really struggled against GT, and as OR pointed out Penn States defense will be just as tough...

    If Charlie has the year that even us ND fans expect him to have (ie "challenging") ND will be fair game when it comes to the issue of how Ty W. was let go after 3 years. Legit or not, its coming.

    It's already there. Just listen to Mark May and the rest of the Charlie haters. I think any coach let go within his first 4 years didn't get a fair shot, unless there was some obvious reason he should be fired.

    Yes they do have a good defense, but they are not known to be quite as blitz happy as that Georgia tech defense was...

    Hopefully Penn State makes him 0-1 as a starter.

    Beliefs are dangerous. Beliefs allow the mind to stop functioning. A non-functioning mind is clinically dead. Believe in nothing.

    I think this seasons defense is the best as its been in about five years. Plus Lou Holtz thinks they're good too, so Ill spread the word.
