Notre Dame at this point in time has no clue what to expect heading into the 2014 season. They would obviously like to get back into championship contention, but the common consensus is that they will go into the year right outside the top 10 as far as rankings are concerned. They have a lot of talent on the roster, but KeiVarae Russell is developing into one of the most important...

Notre Dame Football: Could Notre Dame land Cody Riggs from Florida?

The dust has begun to settle on the 2014 recruiting cycle and Notre Dame fans should be pretty happy. This year’s crop of recruits is strong, and includes two strong defensive back prospects, cornerback Nick Watkins and safety Drue Tranquill.

Future Tense: Cornerback

Notre Dame's pass defense took a major step backward in 2013 and its cornerbacks took their fair share of lumps along the way. Nevertheless, junior KeiVarae Russell expects the younger, yet no-less experienced 2014 crew to again control the airways as they did in his rookie season.

A Secondary Problem, No More

Notre Dame will enter the 2013 season deeper in the secondary than at any point in recent memory. The defensive backfield is also the deepest position grouping for the Irish this season. This, of course, is barring one or two injuries in fall camp (which we saw in 2012). The Irish are sitting at 4 deep across the defensive back depth chart, and have 8 returning players that have...

Breaking in the Corners with Cover 3 and Cover 4 Defenses

Bennett Jackson and KeiVarae Russell will be making their first starts at cornerback on Saturday. While Irish fans can take some comfort in the fact that neither corner will be facing Robert Woods, defending Navy's flexbone offense requires sound play from the secondary. One of the ways I expect Bob Diaco to take pressure off of his inexperienced corners is to play a...
