With almost any loss, Notre Dame fans and members of the media tend to overthink everything and try to understand the show in general in the sense of the big picture. To this point, the focus could be on the future, and some future of Notre Dame is already on the list.
Irish High School did well against the passing Ohio State attack, and impressed two starters in the crowd corner and Marcus Freeman himself.
“Really good, really positive. Jaden Mickey obviously gave up on one landing, but it’s just not on him. There’s a whole bunch we’ve got. People looked at him and he gave in to the landing, but there was pressure that didn’t make it home and there were a few other things we got to make sure.” Than we get the patch. But to get Jaden Mickey and Benjamin Morrison to play and perform at the level they were in that game as real freshmen, they’re going to be special. These two guys will become special players for our show for years to come. Coach Mickins did a good job evaluating these two guys. That’s something he did Coach Mickey in the past. He’s the same person who evaluated Sauce Gardner when I was defensive coordinator who was like, “I don’t know,” and said, “No, that’s the guy.” Same with Jaden Mickey. He came in last year and stood at the table, “” This is the man. And Ben Morrison, this is the guy.” He did a really good job at it. He does a great job assessing talent and then developing their skills.”
With Marshall emerging, the natural assumption is that the Irish should roll – and that will give them a chance to put more young players into the mix. According to Freeman, the Irish are having a challenge on their hands to take care of the business after so much focus on the Buckeyes.
“If the opportunity presents itself. Experience is important, but we are not going into this game and thinking, we will be able to play some players who were not able to play. We are going into this game ready to go. This is a good football Marshall team that will come here and will be excited and ready to face Notre Dame. That will be the challenge for this group. I have spent many months, many days, many hours preparing for this Ohio game and the emotional side of it and how big this game is. We have five days from now until Saturday and the preparations can’t go down. It has to increase That will be our job as coaches and our player’s job is to make sure we prepare in the right way so we can get out on Saturday.”
WR Tobias Merriweather was one of the freshmen who many thought would see a lot of play time against Ohio State. speed from Washington state He never saw the field in Columbus, but most of that was because he was breached in fall camp.
“He just kept moving forward. I know partly through camp it could have been a hamstring or a hamstring or a minor injury, which are the usual camp injuries that kept him from progressing at a faster rate. He should continue to gain confidence. The coaches should keep going. in gaining confidence in him in terms of his ability to aid our attack. He has a great talent. He will help us, Ben Tobias Meriwether, on each of these new students, at some point the talent will catch up to carry out what they have to do under our attack. They will help us. How quickly will that happen It will be determined upon implementation in practice.”
Freeman had a lot to say in the piston including his thoughts on Tyler Buchner, and how this team is moving forward.
