The Sunday press conference was cancelled due to travel schedules from San Diego, so the day held a lot of the injury news that Sunday would normally cover. Drue Tranquill could still play this Saturday, but Alize Mack is going through concussion protocol.
The most interesting part about the press conference in terms of the game this Saturday, was the more macro question of Notre Dame and its November performance.
“It’s a different team each year, right? I’m talking to different kids this year than I was last year. I think our focus, a lot of those guys went through it last year. They know the things that we can’t do.”
“It’s much more about having a football team that’s experienced it, been through it, and wanting to get on the other side of it. They have a process that they know has gotten them here. They’ve won 18 games over the last two years and lost three. They know the process works.”
“They’ve got four weeks, so I think they feel like if we just stay committed to our process, if we stay humble, if we really work on our recovery, be prepared for the next guy to step in, then they’ll be fine.”
