Irish Uglies

Now that ND's season is down to three regular season games, I think it's safe to say we know what kind of team we have. The whatstheirfaces up in the booth hit it on the nose today during the UNC game, citing the offensive line as the one unit that's been the least consistent/productive/reliable. Whenever Brady has time in the pocket, he looks like the guy that everyone expects him to be; when he doesn't, I keep seeing flashbacks to his freshman year. What's disconcerting about this is not so much that we've been losing due to poor o-line play. I mean, let's face it, a year and a half ago at this time, if anyone had said we'd have only one loss in early November of '06 and pretty much in control of a BCS Bowl birth, that person would have been accused of smoking a little too much cigayouknowwhat. But now? After last season? Nope. W's and L's count, yes, but style points are huge. And as much as BQ and Shark and Zibby may get all the press, the Irish are only gonna be as stylish as the uglies in trenches are. And you know what? Their play, I must say, has been ugly.
