We go all Golden Domers and Touchdown Jesus on you guys when we have the always insightful and always entertaining Subway Domer on the show from the website, Subway Domer. The Domer kicks off by weighing in on the Clausen side of the debate before we discuss the heavier issues of ND spring football, trouble with the rivals and the ever exciting conference affiliation topic.
The first issue we hit on is the replacement of Golden Tate, ND's most dynamic playmaker, by Theo Riddick a running back transitioning to the slot receiver in the coming spring practice. Dane Crist's knee injury comes up and it appears that the young gun should be somewhat good to go for spring, participating in non-contact drills. The podcast also takes the time to talk about the return to the 3-4 and how Brian Kelly's offseason program is getting the boys ready to, hopefully, play some defense.
Next up on the docket is the discussion of Notre Dame's chief rivals Michigan and Southern Cal from a Domer's perspective. Good ol' Subway raises an interesting side as he says ND fans shouldn't be tap dancing on the Maize and Blue or Trojans' grave as their fall truly downgrades the Irish's schedule. Especially if sanctions of the "no TV games" variety are handed down.
The last two topics are the expansion and spring scrimmage idea floated out by Dabo Swinney. Subway Domer repeats the Swarbrick idea of going with a conference if it is absolutely vital to Notre Dame's success but preferring to remain independent. He also floats out the idea of the ACC being the second option should the Big 10 move forward without the Irish. Interesting theory as the ACC flirted with ND before the addition of BC, VT and Miami.
Lastly the show sorta, kinda ends abruptly as get into the thick of the spring scrimmage discussion where the Domer converts me from desiring big matchups to wanting to see a sort of "jamboree" styled coaches clinic with schools who would, otherwise never get to work with BCS caliber programs.
