Irish win opener, know improvements needed irish insights diet and yeast infections the journal gazette

Kelly might have needed a shower after watching the irish’s uneven play in the first half, but there was plenty to be excited about in the diet and yeast infections second half. The takeaway from this game will likely be that notre diet and yeast infections dame didn’t dominate and that it was sloppy, which is true. Still, outside of a 10-minute stretch to start the game, the defense was stout against the pass and wreaked havoc diet and yeast infections against the run, forcing five fumbles. Meanwhile, the run game was effective on offense all night and diet and yeast infections ian book found some rhythm throwing the ball in the diet and yeast infections second half.

No, this game was not pretty and it certainly wasn’t perfect. The irish have plenty to work on and they have diet and yeast infections 12 days to do so before they play against new diet and yeast infections mexico on sept. 14. But overall, notre dame showed the ability to take a punch tonight diet and yeast infections and keep swinging. That will come in handy later in the season when diet and yeast infections it faces better teams. The cardinals came out fired up in their first game diet and yeast infections under a new coach, with the biggest crowd in school history at their back, and they put notre dame on the ropes early. After that, the irish asserted themselves and took command of the game. I’m far less pessimistic about this performance than the average diet and yeast infections fan probably is, judging by social media; no road win is easy, especially in week 1, when problems are generally most glaring. The irish won and that’s what matters.

In winning, they got contributions from some young players who had to diet and yeast infections step up in big moments. Tight end tommy tremble filled in for the injured cole diet and yeast infections kmet and made a huge touchdown catch; freshman safety kyle hamilton continued to impress at every step, breaking up two passes in his first career game and diet and yeast infections showing he can spell alohi gilman when necessary; redshirt freshman wideout lawrence keys III reached back on a diet and yeast infections poor throw and made a nice catch for a first diet and yeast infections down. Keys seemed capable of filling the shoes of the injured diet and yeast infections michael young. Kelly said he was excited by the youth on his diet and yeast infections team and actually wants to see more from the established diet and yeast infections players.

"I would argue to you tonight that our veterans have diet and yeast infections to play better," kelly said. "(I would argue) that our young players emerged tonight and really showed that diet and yeast infections they can fill in in areas that, for me, are ones that we needed them to come through in. … We actually need our veterans to step up another level diet and yeast infections of their play, which I’m certain they will.

One of those veterans who has to be better is diet and yeast infections book, who looked skittish against pressure much of the game. He made some nice throws and when he scrambles it’s usually for a positive gain, but he seems to be giving up on plays far diet and yeast infections too easily as the pressure closes in around him. He improved as the game wore on and some of diet and yeast infections those issues can be attributed to rust, but the book on book (sorry) seems to be that he is a little uneasy when diet and yeast infections facing the blitz. Teams will look to bring extra rushers, as louisville did tonight, and the senior quarterback has to prove he can handle diet and yeast infections it. He had 274 total yards of offense, but this wasn’t his best game. He knows it and kelly knows it.

"There was some uncharacteristic flushing from the pocket that we diet and yeast infections hadn’t seen from him," kelly said, while acknowledging that he’d like to watch the tape first to be sure. "A lot of it had to do with seeing a diet and yeast infections defense for the first time. … I’m not trying to sit here and make excuses for diet and yeast infections him, but it wasn’t a first game where it was cookie-cutter for him. There was a little rust there, he’ll be better for it in game 2."

On defense, improvement was much more evident as the game went on. The irish gave up 14 points in the first 11 diet and yeast infections minutes and just three in the final 49, bottling up quarterback jawon pass after he ran wild in diet and yeast infections the early going. Notre dame forced five fumbles and recovered three of them, which helped turn the game in the irish’s favor, but by the second half, they were just stopping louisville cold at the line of diet and yeast infections scrimmage. They didn’t get beaten downfield for any long passes and the diet and yeast infections cardinal running game dried up. It was a clinic down the stretch and it’s that ability to adjust that makes me more optimistic diet and yeast infections than others might be after a performance like this.

"Most first games, that’s how it goes," said safety alohi gilman, who had 10 tackles, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery. "A lot of adjustments, we knew that coming in. … Picking up on those things (that we needed to adjust) took some time for us. Getting the rust off and playing actual football against a diet and yeast infections different team, getting the play speed. After that, we were able to settle in a little more."

"We have them going through the routine of going on diet and yeast infections the road, playing on the road, in a hostile environment," kelly said. "Those things help a football team when they do it diet and yeast infections again. There’s a lot of distractions to an 18-21-year-old when he comes into a stadium and there’s noise and the lights and the fireworks going off. The ability to go through that and eliminate the distractions diet and yeast infections the next time they go on the road is extremely diet and yeast infections beneficial."

A win is a win. I had similar feelings after the irish squeaked past ball diet and yeast infections state and vanderbilt in 2018. Not every victory is pretty and this game exposed some diet and yeast infections areas that desperately need fixing. Notre dame has proven capable of making those adjustments in diet and yeast infections recent years and should be much crisper the next time diet and yeast infections out against new mexico.
