The Triple Option: The conversation about Notre Dame’s Ian Book should change

New, 5 comments

Someone brought Brady Quinn into the mix

NCAA Football: Bowling Green at Notre Dame Matt Cashore-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome back to the Triple Option for the best Notre Dame Fighting Irish news out there. In case you were wondering if I would miss a day here and there, yesterday’s absence should have answered that for you quite well. It’s my son’s birthday today, and — well — you already know how that goes.

Onward.

WHAT IF BRADY QUINN WAS ABLE TO PLAY FOR THE IRISH IN 2007?

You’d take that history re-write in a heartbeat — I know you would. UHND’s Greg Flamaang (best friend of the pod) wrote a fantastic piece that puts some perspective on Ian Book’s return in 2020. For those of you that are still pissed that Phil Jurkovec left (and again — who cares?) this article gives an eye-opening comparison of 2019 Ian Book VS 2006 Brady Quinn.

MORAL DECISIONS

When it comes to the decisions that the University of Notre Dame makes away from athletics, I generally don’t have much comment. I have my opinions, but in my position here and as a Subway Alum, I feel that a lot of it is out of my jurisdiction. It’s a good thing that I know alums that have no problem putting their opinion to paper (digital paper).

WU-TANG FOREVER

Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah is a player that is HOT HOT HOT right now. After a breakout year in 2019 that culminated in one of the most dominating performances of the college football bowl season, 2020 is predicted to be even bigger for WU. ESPN’s Todd McShay just released his top 32 players that are eligible for the 2021 NFL Draft, and Jeremiah is at #17.

JIM HARBAUGH LOVES THAT LEGAL WEED

Jim Harbaugh said the Michigan Wolverines have been “about as close as you can possibly be” to winning a national championship. Seriously... he actually said that. Detroit Free Press writer Rainer Sabin said this:

“Never mind that his teams have never claimed a Big Ten title, finished atop the division, lost fewer than three games in a season or beaten Ohio State, their fiercest rival. In the eyes of Harbaugh, they have been right there, an arm’s length from grabbing the trophy bestowed on the sport’s best college team.”

I don’t need to say anything more. Read the article.
