Hello Notre Dame fans! I know it’s been awhile and all I have to say is that I’ve been in a Summer Slump. I hate summer! I seriously do. People get mad when I say that, but when I evaluate summer, all I see is that it’s hot, the mosquitoes come out, and THERE IS NO FOOTBALL!! Now that fall is fast approaching, I’m coming out of my slump and ready for the best time of year – Football Season!! So let’s talk about the QB situation in South Bend, shall we?
We’re all aware that Everett Golson is gone for the year due to some bad decision-making. Also, that Brian Kelly is standing behind Rees, whom I lovingly refer to as IK (interception king), as his starter. Kelly has now come out and said there is a “clear pecking order here, 1-2-3”.
That pecking order is Tommy Rees at 1, Andrew Hendrix at 2, and Malik Zaire at 3. Personally I like Hendrix. He looked good in the Blue-Gold game. I think he has some maturing to do (don’t we all?), but he’s athletic and mobile and seems to have a decent arm on him.
I’m not going to pretend that Tommy Rees at starter doesn’t scare the pants off of me. I’m just not sure he can get it done the way the Irish need it done. If I’m wrong, I’ll say I’m wrong, but I’m more scared that I’ll be right. Maybe if Rees and Hendrix share the job, we’ll see more success, but I don’t know that that is what Kelly has planned.
I hate uncertainty! I’m also waiting for the naysayers and the haters to say ‘See we told you the Irish were overrated’ or ‘I can’t believe you’re a Notre Dame fan, they suck’. To that I say you better back up before I grab my cast iron pan and hit you so hard your grandkids will feel it! Ok so I’m a little touchy about the Irish and how people continually hate on the team and their fans. I love our team no matter what, even if we don’t win a single game this year (please God don’t let that happen!).
All we can do now is wait and see how this all pans out. No matter the uncertainty at QB, the Irish’s season starts in about 16 days! I can’t wait!!
