Chuck and JJ preview Notre Dame's next game
They -- -- our time here with JJ -- and it's Notre Dame insider for CSN Chicago dot com are talking Notre Dame. We're gonna look ahead in the second let's look back that Oklahoma game what did that do for this team it's confidence. And really what it potentially could mean going forward -- they prove that they can win on the road in an environment like that they're the biggest crowd in stadium history in Oklahoma which is pretty incredible. Biggest take -- connecting with how well I've tackles and played under pressure no turnovers and that big pastor Chris Brown to set up the game winning touchdown. That was ever goals and best game. It really showed the development he's made as a quarterback. And I think that'll really be a big pay off for him in the future that the key for him now is Brian Kelly wants in the string these games together ever Colson can. Be consistent with performances like he had against Oklahoma where he looked comfortable in the pocket he was poised. That's gonna mean really big things from that day and I'm paper if you look at the next three games it seems like win win win but of all those three games before the USC contest. I would think that it would be maybe the biggest the biggest I -- danger zone. They could cause problems for them this week absolutely Tino since there has been playing very good football lately Brian Kelly pointed out and I think another take away from Oklahoma. Was that thirty minutes after the game these players are you know we'll open it up after the big win they come up to the media first things they say next weeks that we've got to focus on pit. So this team is not gonna get lost in this they're not gonna have -- let down week after Oklahoma if they do I think to be a surprise but Pittsburgh has a good offense. They've played Notre Dame tough and last for years and is Braxton cave said. Notre Dame gets everyone's best because everyone hates Notre Dame and seems like Brian Kelly has these guys really with tunnel vision nothing gets in the way except for this week this week this week. That's -- Taylor meanwhile. The Heisman stuff has built an inning because there really isn't a ton of competition out there obviously taken away from them do you think he has a realistic shot. It seems at this point at least in your final strike and -- he's gonna he's gonna go to New York I don't think there's any question about that. Chances really depend on how well count climb in Kansas State plays down stretch AJ McCarron started to get a lot of support from southeast. But yeah obviously it's going LSU this weekend. I think Matt has got a really good chance at making New York I think I'd be a huge honor the last defense only player to ever. Commit to make the Heisman finalist group was and Ndamukong Suh and we saw he turned out in the NFL and everything so. I think he's he's got a very good chance then I think that interception he had. To basically and the game in Oklahoma lock that spot up -- there I think now is the BCS and -- -- championship game potentially they're number three Aspen and Jackson would. Would wouldn't be like for you guys you guys go undefeated. You don't Kennedys used him -- game he's going to be pissed. There are saying all the right things publicly but privately they got to be thinking if we go undefeated and we can be systemic -- -- it would be -- disaster this this team putts not only disaster but I'm but it's a disaster for the BCS in the last couple years that's existence but. I think they're they're big thing here now as they can't scoreboard watch they can't pay attention to what organ when Alabama what Kansas State are doing. But at the end of the day they do need to of those teams to lose they need Kansas State to lose which I think K state is a bad shot gone undefeated with their schedule. Alabama's got LSU this week and also give either Georgia or Florida in the SEC championship. Oregon got USC this weekend and that's all that's going to be a big test for them they haven't really played anyone good -- get Stanford Oregon State pactel south champion. So there are some opportunities here for Notre Dame to move up just by attrition and that's what they need because the schedule they have right now. They're not gonna move up -- Pittsburgh Boston College Wake Forest they need. Those teams they need help them they need they need help from other teams and it's gonna have to come in the form of a USC or TCU. It's not gonna come in the form of Pittsburgh BC wake all right for more games left but it's been fun so far offered ordering an -- know trying to make it nine you know this weekend.
