Whatever is left of Notre Dame after tonight, the Trojans will disassemble next week. FIGHT ON!!

Matt Barkley will provide the biggest test of the year for the ND defense, no doubt.  But everyone that wasn't an Irish fan thought Landry Jones was gonna carve our defense up and ended up beating them anyway. 

First I want to focus on Wake Forest, Nikita Whitlock will give our o-line trouble throughout the game but one star player does not make a whole team.

Barkley may not play due to a separated shoulder.  I only predicted Notre Dame, before the season, to finish with a spot at a New Year's Day bowl, but I never thought they would be this good.  They have vastly exceeded my expectations.  And our defense will be even better next year. 

Brian Kelly is waking up the echoes and shaking down the thunder my friend cheers

Brian Kelly, Tyler Eifert honored

Quote
Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly on Wednesday became the first two-time winner of the Home Depot Coach of the Year Award after leading the No. 1 Fighting Irish to a 12-0 record and a berth in the Discover BCS National Championship Game against No. 2 Alabama.

Kelly won the award in 2009 when he was the coach at Cincinnati. He will receive the award Thursday at the Home Depot College Football Awards.
 
Notre Dame is 12-0 for the first time since 1988 and just the second time in school history. His 28 wins at Notre Dame in his first three seasons are tied for the most of any Fighting Irish coach in such a time frame. He's also the first Notre Dame coach since Lou Holtz (1994-96) to record three consecutive winning seasons.
 
One of Kelly's top players, Tyler Eifert, was named winner of the John Mackey Award, which goes to college football's best tight end.
 
Going into the season, Eifert was regarded as the best receiver for the Fighting Irish and drew extra attention from opposing defenses. Nonetheless, Eifert had 44 receptions for 624 yards and four touchdowns. His reception late in the game against Michigan on Sept. 22 iced a 13-6 victory.
 
A senior, Eifert is Notre Dame's all-time leading receiver among tight ends. He also has been praised for his blocking.

Manti Te'o wins Nagurski, Butkus

Quote
CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Manti Te'o got a call from Dick Butkus on Monday morning, letting him know he was voted the nation's best linebacker. A few hours later, the Notre Dame star accepted the Bronko Nagurski Award as the nation's top defensive player.

Oh yeah, he also picked up a trip to New York as one of the finalists for the Heisman Trophy.

Not a bad day at all.

The energetic senior from Hawaii helped put Notre Dame back in the spotlight this season, leading the top-ranked Fighting Irish to an unbeaten regular season and a date with Alabama in the BCS Championship Game Jan. 7.

Te'o says being mentioned along with former Nagurski winners such as Charles Woodson, Terrell Suggs, Warren Sapp and Champ Bailey is "something very special to me."

Te'o led the nation's top-ranked defense with 103 tackles and seven interceptions.

He beat out four other finalists: South Carolina end Jadeveon Clowney, Georgia linebacker Jarvis Jones, Alabama cornerback Dee Milliner and Florida State end Bjoern Werner.

Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly was on hand as the event's keynote speaker at a downtown Charlotte hotel Monday night and said it's impossible to describe what Te'o has meant to the program.

"It takes time to move from not being part of the national championship discussion for over 20 years to be right at the point of being able to be a national champion," Kelly said. "You need somebody that can galvanize the team and somebody to get them to believe that they can do it. His actions, the way he played and the way he led did incredible things for our football program."

Te'o said this will be a season he'll never forget, but first he'd like to see the Fighting Irish get one more win.

"It's something that you dream of when you're a little kid," Te'o said. "You never think it could happen, then it finally hits you in the face and it's a dream come true."

When asked what he'd rather win -- a national championship or the Nagurski Award -- Te'o smiled and laughed as if it's the easiest question he's ever answered.

"Hey, all these awards are great, but football is a team sport," he said. "If you ask people who the Butkus Award or the Bednarik Award winners are, or even the Heisman Trophy winner some years, they probably don't remember them. But they remember who won the national championship. They remember that. That's the trophy everybody wants."

Te'o said he's anxious for the BCS title game, although it's still a month away.

As for the 45-day layoff, he doesn't believe it will be a factor once the game begins.

"It can be good or bad, depending on the player and team," Te'o said. "It depends on how badly you want it. You can approach those 45 days as a pro. But if you just want to be in the national championship game and that's enough, you're obviously in trouble. Alabama has obviously been there a lot recently. You've got to act like you've been there, even if we haven't."

Kelly said he doesn't see the Fighting Irish losing focus as long as Te'o is in the locker room leading the way.

"He's a great student and he's really been a role model for everybody in our program," Kelly said. "When you put all of those things together he's more than just a football player and I'm blessed that I had an opportunity to coach him."
