Rich Rod's claim to fame is based on his offense, and when it's 'shine' wears off, he becomes just another head coach.
And if there's one thing a Domer would know, it's about a head coach losing his shine.
Living in South Bend, I think that I can honestly say he is really only losing his shine right now with ESPN and the average ND basher.
Charlie is doing many great things here in South Bend. Having the players that he 'inherited' coming into the job somewhat hindered what he came here to do. He was unable to throw many young players onto the field to go through their growing pains. I look at last year and this year as sort of his first two years at Notre Dame.
I understand the whole recruiting grades bull****, but ND is pulling in a much better class of athlete, especially at skill positions. The ones they have now are still very young, and they do not seem to be slowing down during this recruiting season.
Anyways, my two cents here.
Sorry to hijack this mich thread.
