08:20 AM ET 12.18 | On the surface, all this extra practice afforded Notre Dame would benefit a player such as Irish starting quarterback Everett Golson. But [Brian Kelly] pointed out Monday there are potential pitfalls as well. "I think in this preparation sometimes you have to be careful that when you're practicing, you don't slip up and start to create bad habits," he said. "Going out there and trying to make plays without staying in the realm of the offense, because you know it's your guys you're going against. They're not going to hit you. You're not going to get a penalty on this play. That's the huge challenge that we have with the young quarterback that wants to do more and more. We almost have to make certain that we do less and less, but we do it better and better."

"As the Philistine Goliath moved closer to attack him, David ran quickly toward the battle line to meet him. Reaching into his bag and taking out a stone, he slung it and struck the Philistine on the forehead. The stone sank into his forehead, and he fell facedown on the ground." YOU CAN DO IT TOO IRISH...!

Given that the Irish come into the game as the #1 ranked team and have had a few tests of their mettle prior to this NC game does this analogy really fit?

I assume you are thinking that it was a missed extra point by the kicker... Can't see Saban relying on his kicker in an important game... Just sayin'

Well I just hope we see a real good game - no blow outs - with the winning team for who ever it should be kicking a winning field goal with time running out.

According to Vegas (and all the Irish haters around the country) I believe it fits very well...
