Making History: A 3rd Heisman???


Irish Illustrated returns. The year is 2015, 10 years since i took over coaching duties for the university of Notre Dame. My 1st season was Chronicled here.

Sense then, I've had several 10 wins seasons, but never a national title. It's not easy playing 4 top 10 teams every season, but i love the challenge....anyway, enough about me, this isnt about me, this dynasty is about Notre Dame's Senior Quarterback, Vishante Flately

Vishante became our starting QB by accident. After Torrey Spinney, a 1 year SR starter graduated, we had no viable QB options on the roster. I set out to find the best QB in America, and Vishante wasnt even on the radar. After my 1st 5 choices turned us down, i turned to Vish, who had loved Notre Dame growing up in Ohio. He commited instantly, and became the starter by default.

His first season became special, and under appreciated by your truly. The team finished 10-3, pretty good with a freshman QB leading the way. Vishante, despite my criticsm, won the Heisman. Thats right, the Freshman won the heisman, not to mention the Davey O'brien award. He was named Offensive player of the year, and a 1st team all-american. I was shocked, he was good, but not that good!!!!!.....36 touchdowns/15 int's.....as a coach, im trying to improve his game, and all i saw were the int's.

Vishante did improve in his sophmore campaign. He improved his QB rating, threw 5 less int's, and led the team to a Sugar Bowl win. A better season then his sohpmore year, but no post season accolades. I think that fueld Vish, as his junior season was memorable.

Vish led us to our best season in years. 12-1, Orange Bowl win vs and unbeaten Pitt team, and a final ranking of #4. Vish put up monster numbers. 4000 yards, 39 td's, and just 8 picks....He won his 2nd Heisman, 2nd Davey O'Brien, and again was a 1st team All-American, and offensive player of the year.

Vish has returned for his Senior season. Vish has returned to complete the trifecta...3 Heisman tropheys.......hopefully a national title too

Off season

Our preseason began with the addition of 20 new freshman to the squad. We were able to sign 4 5-star players, and 8 4-star guys……including Vishante’s new understudy….Stephen Molden, ranked 14th overall, and the #3 QB….We are credited with the 10th best recruiting class, but I couldn’t be happier. We have a great nucleus for the future.

Our 7th year offensive coordinator, Artose Dalby, reccomends a Vertical offense for the team this year. This will be our 4th straight year running this offense, and it suits Vish perfectly. Greg Ingram, our defensive genious, wants a 4-3, like normal. Ingram is beginning his 3rd year with the Irish. His previous 2 seasons produced defensive rankings of 2nd, and 18th.

Our budget was increased by 200,000+ this offseason, which makes it very easy to spread it around. Our recruiting budget is huge, and no one position will be short changed.

Our schedule consists of top ten teams Michigan St, Michigan, USC, and Purdue. We have 4 open slots. Im looking for 1 easy, 2 medium, and 1 difficult game. Everyone i contact agrees to my proposals.

Our Final Schedule looks like this:
Week 1: at #9 Michigan St
Week 2: Indiana
Week 3: at #23 Auburn
Week 4: #1 Michigan
Week 5: #4 USC
Week 6: at Navy
Week 7: at Army
Week 8: Temple
Week 9: at #3 Purdue
Week 10: Bye
Week 11: at #17 Texas
Week 12: Bye
Week 13: #6 Virginia Tech
Week 14: Bye
Week 15: Boston College

Seems tough enough to me….

Starting Lineup, and game 1 coming tomorrow

2015 Notre Dame Fighting Irish Offense


QB- #12 SR Vishante Flately- The best player in college football, and the star of this story. Vish is 3000+ yards and 13 TD passes short of setting all time marks. Vish is a senior, and I’m expecting him to lead us to a national title

HB- #32 JR J.J. Hatch- JJ will be the starting halfback for the 1st time in his career. He spent the last 2 years backing up Notre Dame all-time leading rusher Duriel Izzo, and hopefully learned from him. Our scouts rate JJ 71/82 right now. JJ has run for 484 yards on 110 carries during his 1st 2 years

FB- #36 SR Pierce Shehee- This 5th year senior is a 2nd year starter. Last year, Pierce showed he is capable of running for 40 yards a game. He is a good run blocker, and a local Indiana boy. Our coaches feel he’s a 61/67, but i'm much more confident in him then that would suggest

SE- #80 JR Arland Younger- Arland has started sense he stepped on campus, but hasn’t lived up to expectations. His numbers are good when he plays, but he is injured far too often. Although he’s played in 21 games, he only finished about half of them. The kid has a lot of talent (75/85), and should go over 1200 yards if healthy

FL- #82 SO Delbert Fenderson- Delbert transferred from the University of Minnesota last season, and after sitting out a full year, he’s raring to go. Delbert didn’t play a down for the Gophers as a freshman, and I don’t know why. He’s a 73/83 right now; he’s the best route runner on the team, won’t get hurt, and works extremely hard. He should be a All-American one day, and with Vish throwing the ball, should get to 1000 yards

TE- #83 SR Galen Semple- 4th year starter, Galen is coming off a 42 catch season, which included 6 TD’s. He’s an all around good player, solid blocker, who doesn’t hurt the running game. Semple is the least spectacular player on offense. He’s a blue collar type player….works for whatever he gets

LT- #77 SO Sonny Wellman- Sonny is a sophomore who never saw the field as a freshman. He seriously considered transferring, but decided to stay when he learned he was penciled into the LT spot….He kept that spot with an impressive spring, and we are confident he will excel. 67/80.

LG- #68 SR Pep Schulters- Pep is our best lineman. He is a 4th year starter, and a local product (not many good Indiana recruits). Pep is the offensive line leader. He’s allowed just 6 sacks in the previous 3 seasons.

C- #61 SR Torrin Howton- This 3 year backup is hasn’t seen much playing time, but this year is his. He’s rated as a 70/77, but is a great pass blocker. SR lineman can win games at this level, and his 309lbs frame won’t hurt.

RG- #65 JR Rian Biekert- This is the oline’s weakspot. Rian will share time with freshman Jonathon Connell. Both are rated 58 currently, with Connell having a better upside. Biekert will be the long snapper

RT- #72 SR Gabriel Sheppard- 321lbs 5th year senior gets his 2nd chance to start, after a 5 game stint as a sophomore. He’s nothing to rave about, but will get the job done

2015 Notre Dame Fighting Irish Defense

LDE- #93 JR Dan Hundon- Dan has started his first 2 years on campus, compiling 16 sacks over that span. 13 of those came last year. He’s a 71/78, and at 65, very difficult to block.

DT- #97 SR Kelly Dubose- 4th year starter doesn’t make a lot of plays, as he’s usually double-teamed. He opens up rushing lanes for his teammates. He’s managed 11 sacks, 16 hurries, and forced 6 fumbles in his 3 seasons.

DT- #90 SO Kevin Golden- Kevin has a nice upside, which is why i’m starting him. 68/77. He has a chance to be very good. He has a mean streak, which we like on the dline. He will share time with Rueben Coia, a JR who had 8 sacks last year.

RDE- #96 JR Rashad Schneck- 14 sacks in his previous 2 seasons. I can’t ignore that production. He’s an excellent pass rusher, uses his speed well. 72/82.

SLB- #49 JR Chance Hickman- Chance is a 3rd year starter, who has all the tools to go pro. He doesn’t miss tackles, is an excellent blitzer, and has a 92 yard int return for TD to his credit

OLB- #50 SO Reche Sidle- Reche was my prize recruit last season, and though he had a sub-par year, just 32 tackles, his long term outlook is extremely positive. 68/83. He should become the leader of the defense next season after the man your about to meet graduates

MLB- #57 SR Junior McIlhenny- Came to ND to play with his older brother, ND all time leading tackler John McIlhenny. Junior needs about 80 tackles to break that record. He’s the best player, and leader of the defense. His instincts are off the map good. Will be in the running for some major awards

CB- #35 FR Bobby Mudd- #10 recruit in the nation starts from day 1. We have no CB depth this year, so an injury would be devastating. Our coaches think he is a 3 year player, who should rival the last CB to start as a freshman at ND. R-Kal VanEeghen who picked 9 passes off as a freshman

CB #43 SO Freeman Birk- Highly touted last season, he and Mudd make up an extremely young CB duo. He’s a 68/83

SS- #31 FR Donny Molden- Forced into the starting spot by our lack of depth in this position. Top 100 recruit, who will be pretty good. He needs to be good now…58/79

FS- #44 SR Hayden Flanagan- Secondary leader. Great coverman. Doesn’t make many mistakes at all. Forced 7 turnovers in his 3 seasons.

Week 1 Preview: #9 Michigan St. Spartans (0-0)

Michigan St is led by junior RB Omari Wells. Wells rushed for 1493 yards last season, and caught 38 balls. Our scouts rate him a 75/87, with breakaway speed. He isn’t very strong and likes to stay away from the inside. Sophomore quarterback RC McCaffrey will make his 1st career start today. McCaffrey is a pocket passer, with a strong and accurate arm. He completed 5 of 6 passes last season, with his lone incompletion being an int. The right side of the Spartans offensive line is weak, and is where we must attack. Our young secondary will have their hands full with state receiver Mathias Wegert, who has caught for over 900 yards in his previous 2 seasons.

Star linebacker Javor Ayodele is the only defender i'm really worried about. State is pretty weak in the secondary, and I don’t see their defensive line getting through to Vish.

Week 2: Indiana Hoosiers (0-0)

IU obviously is supposed to be an easy win, that’s why we are playing this game. We are 2-0 vs. Indiana during my coaching reign. Peerless Granbury quarterbacks the Hoosiers, and is a 1st year starter. He doesn’t have great tools, but makes great decisions. The Hoosiers start a junior who’s yet to take a snap at running back. Bruno Bedford looks like he would make a better QB then a HB. Their offensive line is young and talented. It is the strength of the offense.

Defensively, the Hoosiers have a hand full of players that may be something someday, but overall, they don’t really scare me. The depth is awful, any injuries will bury them. Linebacker Tre Redden leads the way. He recorded 71 tackles last season

Indiana Hoosiers (0-0) vs. #9 Notre Dame Fighting Irish (1-0)
vs.
Live from Notre Dame Stadium in South Bend, In
Today’s Key Matchup: Hoosiers secondary vs. Irish WR Arland Younger
Irish favoured by 29

Injury note: Notre Dame will be missing starting DT Kelly Dubose. Kelly suffered a knee injury against state, and is questionable for today. I will rest him.

• Vish makes 3 long third down passes to keep the drive going
• Vish completes an 11 yard pass to Fenderson, for the TD…7-0 Irish

• Penalties kill us again, this time we cant overcome them….we punt
• Another penalty helps IU get into the redzone….Their 31 yard field goal is blocked by Henri Gesser
• 14-0 after a quarter

2nd quarter
• Penalty negates a 1st down conversion, we punt
• Bobby Mudd strips IU receiver Je’rod Poppinga….Rashad Schneck recovers it….Irish ball
• The turnover gets us a field goal…17-0 Irish
• JJ Hatch is taking advantage of our pass first offense, catching defense off guard…hits the 50 yard mark on his 7th carry
• IU is taking away the long pass…Vish is completing everything under the coverage, long drive.
• 14 play/ 68 yard drive is capped off with a 1 yard TD pass, which is called back cuz of holding…FG makes it 20-0
• IU uses the run in the last 2 minutes of the half…..Grandberry then throws a bomb WR Cannon, who is dropped at our 2…
• Grandberry is sacked by Schnek, who also manages to strip the ball….Dan Hundon jumps on it, keeps his balance, and rumbles 92 yards for the score….27-0

3rd quarter
• Reche Sidle opens the 2nd half picking off a Grandberry pass at midfield
• Penalties force us to punt…our discipline is awful
• IU goes back to the ground game, which eats us up….they score their 1st TD….27-7
• JJ Hatch fumbles our 1st play on the next drive away…IU with a chance to get right back in this thing
• They stall, and kick the 3 pointer….27-10
• WOW…..Vish is sacked, then picked at our 38….falling apart maybe?
• IU continues to chip away with another FG…27-13

4th Quarter
• Vish is sacked again….we cant do a damn thing
• Finally, a nice play…15 yards to Fenderson for the 1st down…..CALLED BACK FOR HOLDING!!!!!
• We punt, and I scream at the whole damn offense
• We force a 3 and out…Vish will know drive us for a TD….I can feel it
• Vish throws an interception, which gets called back for holding….so lucky….at this point, he’s close to being benched
• Vish is picked again on the next play…it counts this time…..Vish is benched for the next series
• IU, feeling time is running out, goes for a 4th and 1
• Pass is incomplete
• College debut for Irish QB Steven Molden
• His first pass is a 3rd down completion for 14 yards to Younger
• 3 plays later….30 yards to Younger for the TD…34-13
• Grandberry goes down to a injury, backup Torry McMichael enters the game…he’s not good
• They punt, and Vish returns.
• 4 completions later, Vish has his 3rd TD pass of the game….41-13 Irish
• Junior McIlhenny picks off a McMichael pass with under 2 remaining….we will run the clock out

Final: Indiana 13, Notre Dame 41

Well, we played great in the 1st half, and totally let the Hoosiers back into the game in the 2nd half. Vish had a bad game. This really hurts his heisman chances. Int's in 2 games will not get it done. He needs to improve, ecspecially in the 2nd half. Im very worried about him right now, ill be working him pretty hard in practise this week

Vishante played bad. His number's look decent, but they arent heisman numbers, and thats what we are shooting for. He needs to improve quickly, if he wants to make history. Defenses seem to be trying to stop the long ball. So Vishante will have to learn to throw the short pass, and ill have to call for more runs. JJ Hatch is a good RB, i need to take advantage of that

Week 3: #18 Auburn Tigers (2-0)

Auburn has started this season with a 49-23 win at East Carolina, and a 24-17 win over Syracuse. The Tigers are ranked in the 30’s in both offense and defense. They only have 7 seniors on their roster, so this team should be a title contender next season. QB is not a position of strength. Sophomore Edd Seals is just a 57/63. His job is to not lose games. So far, he hasn’t. The Tigers are a run first, run second, pass if you have to team. They have 3 extremely talented RB’s. Kern Geason starts, and has 188 yards so far. Dalton Milligan has 164 yards as a backup. And even though Lenzie Chaffey has yet to play this year, he avereged 4.6 ypc last season as a freshman. All three of these guys can be superstars. The offensive line is dominant. Terence Gurley and Kassim Dyal man the left side of the line, and maybe the best left side in college football

Defensively, the team is a little thin. Their 2 best players play the same safety position, and rarely see the field together. It is extremely difficult to run up the middle on these guys, as junior’s Pate and Butkus are big and talented. Auburn’s linebackers are not good tacklers, so the short zone, middle of the field is where we need to attack.

Well that was a lucky comeback....I was pretty upset at the way the whole team had played....Then suddenly....BAM...27-17...then BAM....27-24....then BAM...31-27....I'm sure some Irish fans turned off the tv before that comeback. This was the 1st onside kick we have recovered in during my tenure. Vishante saved his best for last. His numbers arent heisman quality, but his comeback was.....USC and Michigan coming up...we need to be much better

Week 4: #1 Michigan Wolverines (2-0)

Michigan hasn’t won any tough games this season, but they were ranked #1 in the preseason, and have done nothing to lose it. Infact, they were lucky to beat Wake Forest last week, needing overtime to edge the Deacons out 33-30…

The offense is ranked 36th in the country. Tyson Ernst, 1st year sophomore starter is going to be special. He’ll be very good this season, but won’t be counted on to win games. He is very smart, and doesn’t make mistakes. RB Duce Crumpler ran for almost 1400 yards as a freshman, and is averaging 170 yards a game this season. There a lot of controversy in Ann Arbor…68/71 senior center, a 3 year starter has been benched, and hasn’t played a down this season. Instead Seth Rochester, a 55/84 has started both games. He hasn’t exactly played well, allowing 3 sacks.

Defense is ranked 25th…..The defensive line is weaker then I expected, but the LB crew and secondary make up for that. Jessie Raiola, Michigan’s MLB, is a run stopper who makes plays….His ability to read plays, and make tackle’s is unmatched in college football…He will be a top 5 NFL draft pick…..

Wow, what a tough loss...We lost this game because of special teams. They scored 21 points directly off of special teams plays. Take that away, and we outplayed the #1 team in the country. Vishante played great. This was a heisman performance. He put the team on his back, and almost won it. The final interception wasnt Vishante's fault. It was tipped up by the reciever. I almost ran a simple run play, but i was scared of a holding call, which had happend on a previous run. I also wasnt sold on my FG kicker making the 45+ yard kick. Overall, a tough loss...#2 USC is next

Week 5: #2 USC Trojans (4-0)

USC’s offense is ranked 14th in the country. 4th year senior start EJ Colclough has a lot of talent, but seems to have one major problem….turnovers. in his 1st 3 seasons, he threw 40 interceptions…..that’s not good…..4 passes have been picked this year…..RB Abdual Branch is a 2nd year starters whose averaging over 100 yards per game on the ground. The oline isn’t as strong as I though it would be. JC transfer Marcel Saffold was the #1 WR available during the summer. Marcel chose USC over the Irish, which adds a bit of inspiration for us. Marcel has been great. 529 yards in 4 games.

Defensively, USC is average…..Safety Elijah Barlow is in his 1st season starting, despite being the #1 overall recruit 4 years ago. He’s on pace for 100+ tackles. Richard Harrell gets a sack per game. The big weakness is at cornerback. USC has 4 freshman sharing time, and all are bad players right now. We will pass a lot against this group, and if they can shut down a Heisman QB, then they’ll deserve to win. I don’t think they can
