ND vs. Syracuse: Senior Day

Yes, Syracuse is a terrible football team, but they do have a good defense. So while we were supposed to win handily, it is meaningful that the offense put up 27 points on those guys. There was a bit of a slow start, and Quinn again didn’t seem to be as crisp as usual, but I think maybe we’re getting spoiled with this team, expecting them to score on every possession. Most importantly however, we got a win for those seniors that had to endure the roller coaster O’Davieham era.

The Good:

  • Defense, top to bottom.
  • Emptying the sidelines on Senior Day.
  • Stovall: 3 rec for 91 yd and another circus TD catch.
  • Quinn: 21/37 for 270, 2 TD.
  • The Bad:

  • Missed FG, then blocked FG.
  • Not getting to watch the Navy game.
  • The Ugly:

  • No flag on a play where a Syracuse defender ripped Walker’s helmet off by the facemask.
  • Next week, we welcome ND back to the Bay Area for the season finale with Stanford.

    In other news, the axe is still baxe in Berkeley, St. John’s rolls in the DIII tourney (62-3 over Monmouth), and Michigan can’t ever help us out.
