Post Exhibition Notes

Nice write-up in the South Bend Tribune about the two exhibition games. Interesting information about a possible future pre-season scrimage (great idea) and quotes about Harangody spreading the ball around more in the second contest. That's what we need from Luke.

The only troubling aspect from the article is how Tom Noie reinforces the idea that the freshmen will be brought along a similar path as previous underclassmen, no significant minutes until the more seasoned players graduate. We have a SEVEN man rotation as it is. This is simply not going to cut it in the long haul of the Big East season. With eight solid veterans, maybe, but seven players (including no legitimate backup post presence) simply will not do.

Why would any five or four star player want to come to N.D. knowing that their chance of playing as a freshman is somewhere between little and none? Of course we wouldn't know since we don't get any. The two bench players this year are almost like having freshman playing. They have no experience. I've been a season ticket holder since the middle of Diggers years and I like Mike as a person but this program will never be more than mediocre with him at the helm.
