Notre Dame's start is among worst ever with tough games left
Oct 19 2016 by Marjorie Miles
The most minutes he had was nine in Notre Dame's season-opening win over St. Francis. "You've got to get access to the thing before you can have fun in March like we've had the last two years, and it will be harder for us to get a bid this year than it was the previous two years given what we've lost and that our league (the Atlantic Coast Conference) is amazingly deep". And with the outward perception of Kelly's sideline demeanor juxtaposed with the way the Fighting Irish struggle in every aspect of the game, it might seem like the program is simply demoralized. Greer Martini said it best the week of the NC State game. "We've been the reason we haven't been playing as well as we could". We got blown out by 'Bama, had two mediocre seasons and then half our team got hurt last season. He's going to bring in a new defensive coordinator.
McGraw says while she is not 100% yet, star center Brianna Turner will be ready for the start of the season after coming off shoulder surgery. The Irish have been within one possession in all five losing efforts, but Saturday's 17-10 decision was more mystifying than the rest.
"We let it go", Jones said. We were always so tentative. And on Sunday, Kelly was asked what his message will be to recruits and their families should they have any questions or concerns about the way this season has gone.
"But, you know what's been neat about our program, sometime during the year a guy has stepped forward and all of a sudden has been a key guy".
The Irish have an off week before playing the University of Miami on October 29th. "I don't really care about my personal stats, I just wanted that win, that's all I really care about". I think I've got a good pulse on my football team. Coach Mike Brey expects Beachem to pick up where he left off in terms of production. He has all the tools you're looking for in a next level corner and is still just scratching the surface of how good he could be. "When I actually got the news, I was just on Twitter sending him a direct message to see, 'You want to hoop again tonight?' It's been real tough".
IS likely to use chemical weapons in Mosul

New SNC poll: Clinton leads Trump by 8 points
Two final polls undertaken by Gallup and Rasmussen shortly before the 2012 presidential election both showed Mitt Romney winning. Most voters with teenage children say they talk about the election with their children somewhat often (44%) or very often (20%).
Overall Analysis: We absolutely love this pickup for the Irish.
That of course doesn't mean the same five will be starting next year - freshman Tommy Kraemer, for example, could get in the mix at right guard - but if they're not, it'll be because spring and summer competition forced a 2016 starter out of the lineup.
Areas to improve: Hicks is one of those players who does everything well and really doesn't have any discernible weaknesses. Beachem and McElvene played some pickup basketball at Saint Francis on the night before McElvene's death, Beachem said, along with friends and well-known Fort Wayne basketball standouts Vernard Hollins, Caleb Swanigan and Devlyn and Malik Williams. Brey doesn't hide the fact that the Irish play a tough schedule in the ACC and nonconference, but he doesn't have a young team.
Still, Kelly noted that despite the improvement in those areas, there are still problems that need to be resolved if the Irish are to improve their record.
"I told God during my prayer, "When you're 2-5, no one is exempt from blame" - well, except me, of course".
