Irish Huddle - A Look At The 2019 Notre Dame Defense

January 28th, 2019

Notre Dame had an outstanding defense in 2018, but in order to repeat that level of play - or get even better - it must find ways to improve in key areas. It must also do that without some of its best players like Jerry Tillery, Julian Love, Drue Tranquill and Te'von Coney.

Blue & Gold Illustrated senior editor Lou Somogyi and football analyst Bryan Driskell discuss how much growth they saw from the defense in 2018, go over areas where the unit must improve and then break down what returns on defense at each position.

Irish Huddle - 2018 Recruiting Class Is Key To 2019 Success

January 21st, 2019

Notre Dame's 2018 recruiting class was talented on both sides of the ball. Heading into the 2019 season, that class absolutely must step up this offseason if the Irish are going to repeat their playoff performance. That means some of the young players step up and become standouts, some become solid starters and some become crucial depth players that push the starters.

Blue & Gold Illustrated football analyst Bryan Driskell is joined by WSBT radio analyst Vince DeDario to talk about the 2018 class and how they might fuel success in 2019. The pair talks about the offense first, the defense second, and of course finishes up with a discussion of how a 2018 quarterback signee stepping up this spring could be the ultimate key.
