Okay, I know I said that I wouldn’t write anything else on Nevada, but I thought it’d be a good time to drop off some of the good things that I saw other people write.
Here they are, in no order of importance.
* Eric Hansen lays out some questions and answers after the Nevada win. (Side note: Congrats to Eric for his new gig with ESPNChicago.com)
* Rakes of Mallow wants to sleep on the Nevada game before he starts talking. Favorite tidbit of the column is this fun fact: Jimmy Clausen has more touchdown passes than incompletions in his last two games.
* Brian Hamilton of the Chicago Tribune gives us a funny look inside the monster game Mister Michael Floyd had on Saturday.
Asked about the jump ball at midfield that turned into an eye-dilating 88-yard touchdown on Saturday, Notre Dame receiver Michael Floyd began by explaining the great block that he received from fellow receiver
Golden Tate, and how he found a route to the end zone from there.
Of course, that was actually the sophomore’s second touchdown of the day, a 70-yarder, but you know how these things tend to blur together.
“Oh, yeah — I didn’t really remember,” Floyd said, smiling. “It was
a jump ball. I want to be the guy to come down with it. I made an
alright play on it and got it to the end zone.”
When you get your 70+ yard touchdown catches mixed up, that’s usually a good sign.
* Irish Sports Daily’s Bryan Driskell wins the award for most comprehensive break down of Notre Dame’s win against Nevada.
* UHND.com gives his initial impressions on the 35-0 victory over Nevada. They weren’t a fan of the Armando Allen led Wildcat plays.
* Tony Krausz of the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette gives us an update on two local products, Bishop Dwenger standouts John Goodman and Tyler Eifert, getting some PT.
* Meanwhile, over at ESPNChicago, Eric Hansen details the Te’o family’s 4,400 mile trip to South Bend. (Somewhere Brian Polian is having flashbacks…)
