    Notre Dame v Syracuse

    The hits just keep coming for Notre Dame’s defense. On Tuesday, Brian Kelly confirmed that defensive tackle Jarron Jones would be lost for the season. He also announced that safety Drue Tranquill tore his ACL, ending the freshman safety’s season as well.

    It appears that Notre Dame’s already youthful defensive line is going to be getting even younger on Saturday. After losing Jarron Jones essentially on the first play of Saturday’s 31-28 loss to Louisville, a Sunday MRI will determine the severity of the injury and whether he can play again this season.

    Kyle Brindza stared down his spot. Envisioned making the kick. Took a final deep breath before waiting for the snap.

    And then he missed it.

    After presenting our first five players on the countdown, we move on to another group of players with high expectations. And while four others will certainly draw attention, we come to our annual exercise on evaluating the promise of Ishaq Williams.

  8. Spring Solutions: Defensive line

    No unit in the country is looking at bigger shoes to fill than Notre Dame’s defensive front. Gone are Louis Nix and Stephon Tuitt, two once-in-a-decade talents who left South Bend after injury plagued and underachieving seasons. With injuries marring the development of linemen young and old, there’s no question that the defensive line is…

  9. The good, the bad and the ugly: Notre Dame vs. BYU

    For the fourth straight season, Notre Dame sent its seniors out with a victory, a wonderful change from the Charlie Weis era where the Irish lost their two final home games in devastatingly painful fashion. But on Saturday, the Irish put together a complete victory, a late-season win that felt like a great pitcher grinding…

  10. Offseason cheat sheet: Defensive line

    Tuitt Nix

    My how things have changed. Once a position group that was the bane of Notre Dame fans’ existence, the defensive line has powered the renaissance Brian Kelly has orchestrated. That being said, this group isn’t without some setbacks. Two players that looked like key reserves on the line, Chase Hounshell and Tony Springmann, are lost…

    (The third in a multi-part series profiling select members of the incoming class of 2012. The first installment was on wide receiver Chris Brown. The second on safety Elijah Shumate) Once viewed as a luxury defensive item or a potential offensive lineman, the transfer of Aaron Lynch has moved blue-chip defensive lineman Jarron Jones up…

    Part five of our series recapping the recruits ready to sign letters-of-intent with Notre Dame next Wednesday. (Or already on campus.) Previous installments include the running backs, offensive line, wide receivers and quarterbacks.  At his first signing day press conference, Brian Kelly all but announced his intent to rebuild the front seven of the defense via recruiting.

    For years, Notre Dame struggled to land elite defensive linemen. With Brian Kelly in charge, the Irish can’t miss. Monday night, Kelly reeled in another mega-defensive line recruit, with 6-foot-7, 310-pound defensive lineman Jarron Jones from Rochester, New York pledging his commitment to the Irish, adding another jumbo-sized, blue-chip defensive lineman to a rapidly filling…

    Jarron Jones

    Up until a few weeks ago, gigantic defensive lineman Jarron Jones liked what the Irish coaching staff was telling him, but he had no frame of reference. The 6-foot-6, 305-pound blue-chipper from Rochester, New York was committed to Penn State, but still planned on visiting Notre Dame and seeing first hand what the Irish were…

    Jarron Jones

    For those following the ins-and-outs of recruiting, the big picture, one-sentence recap of this past weekend’s Junior Day at Notre Dame is this: Nobody committed to the Irish. That said, if we’ve learned anything during this era of recruiting, an early verbal commitment means just about nothing, and the Brian Kelly led Irish coaching staff…
