Wu-Banga Tuesday... Therapy

Therapeutic. That's what a win over a big rival feels like for the next week. It doesn't last long with another rivalry game coming up for the Irish.

So here we go with another Wu-Banga MVP edition:

David Bruton. The man was everywhere for the Irish against Michigan. People can say what they want about the game and how those fucking skunkbears "gave ND the game." FUCK THAT! Bruton took what he wanted with 15 tackles (1.5 TFL) a forced fumble inside the 5 and an interception inside the 5 as well. David Bruton's new name is "Mr. Impossible The Redzone Killah."

Brian Smith. Javon Ringer carried the ball 43 times for 282 yards against Florida Atlantic last week. Brian Smith has to, and will step up and make Ringer wish he got hurt against FAU. In the first two games, Irish opponents used a pass spread and a run spread as their primary offensive attack. MSU is more of a traditional power offense, meaning nothing more than they like to line up in a "I" formation or double tight "ACE" and run the shit out of the ball. Look for Smith to be everywhere the ball carrier is and bringing a lot of violence with him.
