College Football Gambling: Notre Dame parts ways with defensive coordinator

09.27.2016     08:20 AM     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
In keeping with the "house cleaning" theme for today, Notre Dame announced the firing of defensive coordinator Brian VanGorder following Saturday's 38-35 loss to Duke. With a backup quarterback, the Blue Devils waltzed into South Bend and nearly 500 yards. This is the same team that scored a combined 27 points in losses to Wake Forest and Northwestern. The remainder of the Irish's schedule looks daunting from a defensive perspective. This week's foe, Syracuse, is playing at a pace Notre Dame has shown no ability to contain. North Carolina State and Miami haven't played anyone but are putting up points in bunches. Navy and Army aren't ideal for a stop unit that struggles to tackle. And Virginia Tech's up-tempo offense is starting to take hold with 103 points the last two weeks against Boston College and East Carolina.


“When you guys ask me those questions certainly that's not the time or place to get into debates about your coaching staff. I make those decisions clearly when I have the opportunity to evaluate it. And (I) had time last night to evaluate our current situation and made what I felt to be the best decision for the program,” Kelly said on his weekly Sunday teleconference.

Im not a Van Gorder fan but the blame for their defenses problems start and end with Kelly. He knew what he was hiring. Van Gorder runs an extremely complex scheme. Ive read/listened to countless player and analyst conversations about his defense and the rigors a Notre Dame player goes thru each week. Every player talked about how hard the scheme is to pick up and how critical it was to be in the system several years just to be able to play fast in it. Combine that with an administration eager to suspend players and your playing with a thin, unexperienced roster every year.This imo, is not a talent issue. I think you will see someone come in, simplify the scheme and get better results. ND recruits at a high level, eventho its not as high as the recruiting ranking might suggest they have plenty enough talent then to be giving up so many points to Duke, Texas and Mich St. Also if you want to play defense then run the ball on offense, control the game, stop turning the ball over 3 times a game. Every fucking dumbass with a platform to talk football thinks scoring 35 points means you should win but 35 points is only a lot if your not committing turnovers and you win TOP

9 lost balls against Texas, Duke, Sparty and Stanford, Ohio State to close out last year. -5 turnover margin. Brutal.

I agree Kelly is turning out to be just another bad coaching choice. Turnovers reflect bad coaching especially if there is talent.
