Notre Dame 2022 in The Next Level Posted September 8 37 minutes ago, temptation said: Figured today would be as good a day as any to pull receipts. The THREE Heisman candidates I heard about all summer (Stroud, Henderson and Smith-Njigba) certainly didn't set the world on fire in game one. Hell, you could make the argument that Stroud wasn't even the best quarterback on the FIELD for most of the game or that Henderson wasn't the most valuable running back on his own TEAM in this game. Still confident in them dropping 50 on Michigan @Footballking16? Didn't you give me +21 somewhere on this forum? Tongue firmly planted in cheek. I kid. I know O$U will be there in the end. Just busting your balls. Well JSN got hurt early, so of course he was a non-factor. I do think Day tried to get cute without his lead receiver rather than methodically run the ball down ND's throat which they did in the second half. Not a career day for Stroud by any means but still threw 2 TD's and still completed 70+% of his passes. Also had two RB's average 6 yards/carry, a lot of people forget Miyan Williams would start for 90% of teams in the country. And at the end of the day, you just have to tip you hat to ND. They have a very good front 7 and had a masterful defensive plan. Will credit Freeman in that regard. Still think OSU's offense is going to be a problem when it gets in full gear. I was honestly more impressed with OSU's defense if anything. ND had 250 yards of total offense and 50 of them came on the first play of the game. Notre Dame has a very good OL and OSU was in the backfield all game. Still think OSU is going to do what they want with Michigan when the time comes.
