After his performance tonight, the last name is no longer necessary. I don't know where this has been all year, but I don't know if its so obvious anymore that Cierre is the elite back on our team. He's been running hard with the power of Jim Brown, cutting like Barry Sanders, and refusing to go down easy. He brings this to Miami he's going to wow some people.

I wish they let him finish off that drive!
May your neighbors respect you, Trouble neglect you, The angels protect you, And heaven accept you.
They should be giving him the ball inside the 10,3 plays in a row and he doesn't touch the ball,he's the Irish go to guy tonight let him finish the drive.
Theo is an f'ing stud.
Mvp for the game for sure.
It made no sense not to give him the ball at the end when we were in the red zone. Golson was a little gimpy riddick was running possed! Then wth did we not continue to run it at the end????
I have been begging to see more Woods ALL year and have thought he deserved to be starter. Theo was insane tonight and has proven to be a much more well rounded and dynamic back. He has me converted, feed him the rock!!
Very similar to his gutsy performance in the Michigan game, only better!
Theo will be part of this rivalry history - his running was nothing short of inspirational! AND that goal line stand is one for the ages 7 attempts to score from w/i the 5 yd line AND ND STOPPED THEM - awesome!! GO IRISH!!
In 41 years of watching ND football, the ferocity and fearlessness with which Theo ran tonight matches anything I've ever seen here.
What impressed me so much was even when he got hit in the backfield he found a way to get something positive out of it. He was so determined. I also seen on a few occasions USC trying so hard to strip the ball from him and he just wouldn't let that happen. Very impressive.
CHUCK NORRIS CHECKS UNDER HIS BED FOR THEO RIDDICK! Kid REFUSES to go down!!!!
Riddick played absolutely out of his mind last night. He was easily the star on offense, and I think he helped uplift the D through a flat first half.
How many times did it look like be would get stuffed for no gain only to knife through for 5 or 6 yards? How many tackles did he break? The dude was on fire and unstoppable!

Theo is the mini version of Bettis!!! As far as Wood, I am not sure who is advise him to test the pro market?? He doesn't have enough carries to warrant a high draft pick?? I don't see Wood going before the 4th round? I think he should come back!
Theo was great last night. He hits the holes hard and looks explosive, something Wood and GA3 dont do
You sir took the words right out of my mouth.I been a notre dame fan all my life and I haven't seen a running back ran the way he did last night !!!! Thank you THEO THANK YOU !!!!! GO IRISH!!!!!!!
Cierre and especially GA3 run like cheerleaders compared to how Theo runs
Theo was fantastic last night, a great game.

Theo was in beast mode. Was pounding my fist against the wall when BK went away from him
Grown man effort. I thought Kelly abandoned him a bit in the red zone in some late game situations last night when he was clearly the hot hand on offense. But Riddick has grown as much as anyone on the team this season, particularly over the last half of the season.
His ascendancy couldn't come at a better time. One more big worry for the next opponent.
I may not be pretty, but I'm fast.....
POTW 1/31/11 - 2/6/11
Theo was amazing - like everyone else I was screaming at the TV when we were going empty on the goal line. How we run it all the way down there with Theo - and then don't even line him up in the backfield was a major head scratcher.
I know we love the Eifert fade - but honestly that's a low percentage play versus banging Theo up in there from the two.
Thankfully it all worked out - or we would be talking about this play calling for 20+ years.
God. Country. Notre Dame.
