  • Notre Dame vs Texas State

    This is a college draft. Which team has the better college talent. Nothing to do with NFL talent but how well they play at the college level. Any player that was injured in the first two games are not in this. It's not what college team will win but which one has better talent.

    Notre Dame Fighting Irish

    Coach: Charlie Weis
    Offense: Single Back - 2 TE Formation
    Defense: 3-4

    QB Brady Quinn Notre Dame
    RB Marshawn Lynch California
    WR Ted Ginn Ohio State
    WR Dwayne Bowe LSU
    TE Zach Miller Arizona St.
    TE Greg Olsen Miami
    OT Doug Free N. Illinois
    OG Jeff Byers USC
    C Doug Datish Ohio State
    OG Mike Jones Iowa
    OT Andre Smith Alabama


    DE Adam Carriker 6-6, 300
    NT Alan Branch 6-6, 330
    DE Andre Fluellen 6-4, 290
    OLB Brandon Siler 6-2, 235
    ILB James Laurinaitis 6-3, 245
    ILB Desmond Bishop 6-2, 243
    OLB Quentin Groves 6-4, 250
    CB Daymeion Hughes 6-2, 190
    CB Johnathan Wade 6-0, 195
    S Leonard Peters 6-1, 200
    S Aaron Rouse 6-4, 225


    On offense: Brady Quinn is the premier college QB in the land. Ted Ginn is most likely the fastest WR in the land and he has the speed to burn past defenders deep. His ability to stretch the field deep opens up WR Dwayne Bowe who is a great route runner and is one of the best in the nation at making the tough catch in the middle of traffic. As if that's not enough, Quinn has 2 elite TE's in Zach Miller and Greg Olsen who are both able to exploit the middle of the field very easily in one on one LB coverage. This 2 TE formation is also a great scheme to disguise the run versus the pass. With Marshawn Lynch coming out of the backfield this offense is potent.

    On Defense: We have playmakers at every position. Alan Branch will single handedly command double triple teams and open things up for DEs Adam Carriker and Andre Fluellen to man handle their opposition. Our LB corp is the biggest and most talented corps assembled. With James Laurinaitis and Desmond Bishop in the middle and Brandon Siler and Quentin Groves attacking from the outside, offenses will have fits trying to get anything done. This group is great at the run as well as dropping back in coverage. In the secondary Daymeion Hughes is a shutdown corner, and Johnathan Wade is a star in his own right. Aaron Rouse and Leonard Peters are devesating punishers in the backfield. This assembly of talent is unpenetratable.

    LE Brian Robison, Texas
    WLB Xavier Adibi, Virginia Tech
    ILB Justin Warren, Texas A&M

    CB Aaron Ross, Texas
    CB Fred Bennett, South Carolina
    S Kenny Phillips, Miami
    S Tom Zbikowski, Notre Dame

    Head Coach: Gene Chizik


    In case it's not obvious, Texas State will be running the triple-option out of the wishbone formation. Drew Stanton is a tough runner who can take a pounding, so I am confident with him as my quarterback. His first option will be to give it to the fullback, Brian Leonard. He can fake that instead and keep it himself. Depending on which side he goes to, he will have the option of pitching it to Adrian Peterson or Ian Johnson. Both are tough, touchdown machines. Matt Spaeth is a great blocker, as well as being very productive catching the ball and won the best tight end award this season. Chansi Stuckey is a burner who will be used to stretch the field occasionally to keep defenses honest, as well as on reverses. My offensive line has 3 of the Big XII's finest as well as a damn good LT in Alex Boone, and the best center in college football Dan Mozes. My defense is led by Justin Warren, a physical specimen and force against the run. He's flanked by Keith Rivers and Xavier Adibi, two physical FREAKS who are always around the ball. My line is perfectly balanced with a great 4-3 nose in Okoye and THE best 4-3 under tackle in Thomas. Bazuin is an elite pass rusher, while Robison is an underrated and well-rounded end in his own right. Aaron Ross is the most polished player out of a talented Texas secondary, and Fred Bennett is often overlooked because of the lack of talent on his defense. Kenny Phillips and Zbi are absolutely killers. Zbi will stay more in the box, but both are flexible enough that I don't need either to be a true free or strong safety.

    That is correct comahan

      IMO ND is better, explosive offense and defensive playmakers.

          I'm gonna go ahead and guess people voting for ND aren't aware of how the 3-4 works, and just have hard-ons for ND and Quinn.

              You're winning 9-3 and you make a comment like that?

              BTW, Scott Wright says the best NT prospect in the draft by far is Alan Branch. But what does he know, right? :roll:

                I just don't think he can get great leverage being 6'6

                    Why don't you tell me why my defensive assembly of talent is so bad. Tell me where in the front 7, things are messed up. Keep in mind, this is a college team running the 3-4. Not the NFL.

                      And Ted Washington?

                      Dude, this is Alan Branch here facing college level talent. His strength, size and power is more than sufficient to play NT. Will he command a double? Can he stuff the run? Then that's all I need.

                        BTW, are there any teams in college today that are successful running the Wishbone?

                        What a joke! This isn't 1977 anymore. Offensive systems are soooo much more advanced now days. The college game has narrowed the gap between the pro game. Things are much more complex now days and the wishbone has been extinct for a long time now.

                          Brandon Siler ar 3-4 OLB? Yea ok. Fluellen in a 3-4? That's not happening. Branch is alright, but Laurinaitis can't get off of a block. Carriker and Groves are the only guys that really fit their roles.

                          That is correct comahan

                            Back up your opinion.

                              I gotta go with D-Units Notre Dame team. Football games are won on the lines of scrimmage and D-Units OL and DL are superior.
