Notre Dame - The Corwin Brown Factor

This is a very conflicted time of year!!

Summer is finally here but we have had any college football for over five months! We don't want to rush summer, but we can see our favorite teams teeing it up in the distant horizon!

Nothing but gloom and doom is forecast for the supposedly hapless Irish, but the critics are underestimating the "Corwin Brown Effect"!

It's beautiful morning here in Klingerville, and I am listening to the local sports talk show on the way back from purchasing my artery clogging cappuccino, when I hear that Corwin Brown's Jets secondary went 13 straight quarters without giving up a Pass Interference penalty!

Little facts like these seem come to my attention every day.....added to the fact that Coach Brown has done wonders as a recruiter, bagging blue chip verbal commitments from talent such as Omar Hunter, Robert Blanton, Jamoris Slaughter, and Ethan Johnson.

According to sources in the Irish blogosphere "Corwin Brown, almost single-handedly, is becoming one of the best recruiters in college football and is close to signing a class that will give the Irish national-championship caliber talent on defense for the first time in at least 10 years."

We must also remember that the Irish defensive secondary returns Tom Zibikowski, Ambrose Wooden, Terrel Lambert, and Darrin Walls ... not mention adding the speed of Munir Prince!

If Corwin Brown and his 3-4 Defense overachieves, that would give ND's offense some wiggle room to work out it's wrinkles and find it's new identity.

The real beauty of it all is that everyone has pretty much written off the Irish for 2007.

I think Corwin Brown thinks otherwise........
