09:13 AM ET 10.07 | Tony Rice, the last Notre Dame quarterback to win it all in 1988, shook hands and granted interviews shown on the Jumbotron as alums reminisced over Chicago's ACC team renewing its regular-season rivalry with Miami. But for the first time in what looks like a special season, current Notre Dame quarterback Everett Golson did things worthy of comparison to the man he shares more with than a home state. For the first time, Golson used his legs to complement an arm that didn't betray him in a big moment. "I thought Everett grew up today,'' coach Brian Kelly said. He was due for a growth spurt. Before Notre Dame's 41-3 mauling of Miami, Golson had inspired such little confidence in everybody but Kelly that many considered it encouraging to learn that he wouldn't start after violating a team rule -- he was late for a meeting. When Golson replaced Tommy Rees on the fourth offensive snap, it quickly became clear that this was the night he had arrived.

No, they aren't.

Miami's D was about as bad as advertised. Young, inexperienced, undisciplined in alot of ways, and did I mention they were young?

ND completely dominated last 3 quarters, so despite svt's moaning about dropped passes and blown calls it was a thrashing. Miami will definitely get better. They are very yound but there seems to be a lot of talent at least of offense. We get to see how real the Irish is in the coming weeks with Stanford & Oklahoma looming. But we are looking better than we have in years. Haters might really hate this year for the Irish. GO IRISH!

Hey, even a domer as much as I am will admit that those drops were devastating in the first quarter. But, hey, that's why they play the game on the field and not on paper.

Big test for the Domers coming up against Stanford. The Trees survived AZ and RichRod without blinking. Should be a shootout.

"Should be a shootout."

Disagree.... ND's D will stop anything that Stanford can throw at them.

GO IRISH!

It was great to see the run game dominate the field (Wood/Atkinson). The Irish owned the time of possession.
The defense held another foe to 3 points, a great start to the season Men, keep the W's coming and G0 IRISH !!! YEAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nobody thought they had a "good D" it was the O everyone was talking about.

They missed some plays & had flags tossed at big moments that took the air out of them.

But excuses are like A holes... ;o)

Sorry Van, and yes I was at Sunday Mass. Over on the group threads, LUS was graciously taking my place as the LOSAH in the weekly Pick'em. Great win by your team. Lots of work to be done, but you guys are looking good.

Watching ND last night was like going back twenty years to Lou Holtz's time--smash mouth running, grinding defense and intimidation of the opposing QB who couldn't get out of the pocket fast enough the second half.
For the first time in years, since after Lou left, I'm beginning to feel comfortable about the future for the program. If the NCAA keeps tightening the academic standards that scholarship athletes have to maintain then ND will be on a level playing field for recruits, and their incoming talent should continue at the high level BK has set.
BK also looks like a changed man this year; more in charge of himself on the sidelines and less posturing in post-game media sessions. He's beginning to look comfortable in the job.

I cannot emphasize enough the importance of stringent, disciplined, and devoted following of team rules for any football program. Every player on the team must adhere to them, and if one guy thinks he's above the rule because he started a game that his back-up won for him, then he's got to be benched.

I'm so glad to see Brian Kelly enforcing the rules by benching that no good, dirty, low-down, tardy, Everest Goldfinger and putting in a morally upstanding, rule-follower in his place for the first 3 downs. Remember getting arrested for public intoxication and beating up police officers is NOT in the Notre Dame rule-book. But I heard that's one of the loop-holes Mitt Romney will be closing when he's elected president.
