During the 6-0 start, the Irish defense has posted numbers not seen in more than 30 years.
Given the failings of our fledgling offense, especially in today's game, the D's accomplishment is truly special. Thank you Manti for coming back.
i really think that getting elliot on board was a huge benefit, both from his highly regarded resume and great teaching abilities to the young safeties. both he and cooks have a great chemistry and fit in diaco's scheme.....
Don't forget in the second game, Purdue's final TD was set up on a short field by a Golson fumble in our red zone. Something tells me ND shoots past Alabama to #1 in scoring defense next week. I look for Tennessee's adept passing attack to put up at least a couple TDs on the Tide in Knoxville Saturday night.
Very impressive streaks, it's always hard to keep the opponent out of the end zone. This streak is impressive. I honestly feel like when the Irish are on D, the other team won't score. Eventually someone will, they just won't score often. This is the best Irish defense I've ever seen in my 27 years of life.
