Live Blogs: Notre Dame vs. Air Force

NCAA Football: Stanford at Notre Dame

Welcome back for another live blog. As we did for the last home game, we’ll supply you with options and let you decide how you want to watch this Saturday’s match-up between Notre Dame and Air Force.

If you’re here to watch the game, we’ve got you covered. The game will be streamed live on NBCSports.com’s digital video player, fully equipped with DVR capabilities and HD quality video. I’ll be answering your questions and chatting along with you, in a live-feed built right into the player.

If you’re just here for a good old-fashioned live blog, don’t worry, I’m doing double-duty again, with Cover-It-Live loaded and ready to go.

It’s a beautiful Saturday in South Bend, where the Irish are looking to extend their winning streak to four games on the way into their bye week. They’re also entertaining one of the nation’s top recruits, with Florida wide receiver Nelson Algholor in town. (His twitter feed already reads like a love letter to Notre Dame, great news for an Irish coaching staff looking to find their next Michael Floyd.)

The game day captain for the afternoon is Jonas Gray, who took the microphone at the pep rally and turned it into one-part motivation speech, one part stand-up comedy routine.

There are plenty of plot-lines to track this afternoon. Buckle up and here we go.

    On the option, if you have the quarterback and he pitches it, slaughter the quarterback anyway. The pitch means you’re already out of the play, no point chasing the ball. Make the quarterback not want to do the option anymore.

    how many times are these idiots going to use the word “schedule” to sound intelligent?

      Heard it plenty during the Red River Rivalry game, and in just about every other game I’ve seen this year, come to think. They’ll get over it eventually.

    Offense was close to unstoppable. Both quarterbacks did a great job. Hendrix led both teams in rushing, amusingly. Another fine Saturday.

    So Rees is the QB this year…….what about next year, you have to think that Hendrix and Golson will know the offense pretty well, and seeing Hendrix running around today got me pretty excited to see what could be. I know right now Rees is the guy but what are the chances you think he’s the guy next year?

      That’s a real question…and a problem. They have too many good quarterbacks in the same year range. I never thought I would have to say that
