    Hear It From a Student - This Should Be Ours

    floydstate.jpg I don't want to overstate this, but this weekend should be ours.

    This season has been an emotional mosh pit. Our last win revealed that we are still weak in some areas. No one should be cocky yet - that never leads to good places anyway.

    With all of that in mind, I'm saying it now: Our boys should take no prisoners this weekend.

    I'm proud to say that I know quite a few students heading to Purdue this weekend to, as I have been saying, ride the wave of excitement that is swelling from Irish football now. Good. Our program needs that. Our players need that.

    But here is a little something extra to boost confidence and lift spirits on this Football Friday. Assistant sports editor Daniel Thomas of the Purdue student paper writes, "The Boilers look to beat the Irish for the first time in their last four tries," as his closing line in an article previewing the game.

    Ouch. Not exactly a vote of confidence.

    He calls the Notre Dame offense potent, praises Michael Floyd, and goes so far as to point out the ways in which the Purdue cornerback looking to cover Floyd doesn't match up.

    "It is likely the Boilers will try to slow Floyd with sophomore cornerback Ricardo Allen who is six inches shorter and 50 pounds lighter," Thomas writes.

    There is absolutely no way we should come back from this weekend with anything other than a win. I won't even demand that it be pretty. "We're learning," after all.

    Sorry, Ricardo Allen.
