Damnit, it's time for the Notre Dame game
I CAN'T TAKE IT ANYMORE. WILL THIS GAME EVER GET HERE?
Seriously, though. Has there ever been a more important game for this defensive coaching staff? They've surrendered over 400 yards in 5 consecutive games. They got shredded all offseason. They didn't answer any questions in the opener. They are now facing the golden child and his super-duper Notre Dame offense that just rolled Pittsburgh.
Can you imagine the statement they could make with a lights out performance? Can you imagine the unending criciticism if they get lit up again?
This game is basically it. Get hammered by Notre Dame on offense and I'm probably soured on most of the defensive staff forever, starting with the head man. Step it up and shut them down and I'm believing this could be a special season. I wish it didn't come to this, but the nightmares of last year are still fresh in my mind. I have a feeling I'm not alone amongst Michigan fans.
