Notre Dame loses Ian Williams to torn MCL

Over the last few years, Notre Dame has grown somewhat accustomed to being on the wrong end of a beating.  Still, the school's loss to Navy over the weekend took things to a brand new level.  Suddenly a Navy team that the Irish once held a 43-game win streak over beat them for the third time in four years, and this time did it via a 35-17 evisceration.

Navy fullback Alexander Teich ran the ball down Notre Dame's throat repeatedly, finishing the afternoon with 210 yards on 26 carries.  When the Irish defense sit down to watch the tape this week, they might fall under the impression they're watching a snuff film rather than a football game.  So, if it wasn't obvious to Notre Dame before Saturday that its run defense needs a lot of work, it definitely is now.

Though it's going to be very hard to improve now that the team has learned starting nose tackle Ian Williams is going to miss the next four to six weeks with a torn MCL.  Which could mean that the senior's season, and career, at Notre Dame are over because at 4-4 on the season, there is no guarantee that the Irish will be going to a bowl game this winter.

Williams suffered the injury during the third quarter of the game, and according to CBS' sideline reporter Sam Ryan, he was seen sobbing on the sideline before an air cast was put on his leg.

Tom, shame on you for posting such lies....you forgot that 4th Quarter mercy TD Navy gave up, the final was actually 35-17, you must have tuned out in the 3rd like most ND fans at the game fleeing for the exits when it was 35-10...lol...amazing how many ND players came away with some sort of injury this game at the hands of all those giant mashers the Middies have.
