Joey, have fun with the game. In the meantime, Notre Dame will have to be sharp against a Cincinnati team on a mission.
Brian Kelly is well aware of the offensive capabilities of quarterback Desmond Ridder and the Bearcats.
“Very talented in all phases offensively,” Kelly said of Cincinnati, via OneFootDown.com. “I think you start with Desmond Ridder, the quarterback, he’s a playmaker He reminds me of the kid we went against, Perkins at Virginia, a couple years back. Very athletic, makes plays with his feet, deceptively accurate, strong arm, talented. It’s a really good quarterback and he’s got a lot of experience. He’s played a lot of football, a lot of college football, a lot of winning football. He has won a lot of football games. So, I think you start there on the offensive side of the ball.”
