09/16/2011 - KEEP AN EYE ON: The bounce-back ability of this football team. Remember, Notre Dame rallied from a 4-5 record with four straight wins at the end of last season. "I still believe in this team," coach Brian Kelly said Sunday. Next up, though, is No. 15 Michigan State in South Bend this week. CB Gary Gray had his first interception of the season, the fifth in his career, but didn't have a good game. Kelly said Sunday that his spot is not in jeopardy at this time. - The Sports Xchange

09/14/2011 - Cornerback Gary Gray had a rough night and was burned several times by big pass plays, including the game winner. "Oh, he's got to have a short memory at that position, you know, and certainly college football, NFL football, you're going to have a day like that," Kelly said. "It's unfortunate that people look at that one position because it's not just Gary Gray that we put this loss on. There's a lot of situations. If we don't turn the ball over, Gary Gray's name is not even brought up. "Gary is going to be fine. He's a senior. He'll bounce back. He had a great game last year against Michigan State, and he's been really solid for us. So we need Gary Gray to come up and play good football this weekend against Michigan State." Notre Dame will be facing a different type of quarterback but another top-notch one in Kirk Cousins, who connected on 23 of 33 passes for 245 yards and two TDS in MSU's 34-31 win in East Lansing a year ago. - AP Sports

09/11/2011 - Notre Dame's latest meltdown is threatening the Fighting Irish's preseason goal of going to the BCS. Now 0-2 after a deflating 35-31 last second-loss at Michigan, the Irish are going to have to regroup quickly with 10 games to go, starting this Saturday against No. 15 Michigan State. Against Michigan, there were five more turnovers and nine more penalties, giving the Irish 10 turnovers and 17 penalties in the two games. Quarterback Tommy Rees looked poised at times but he also threw a pair of interceptions and had a costly fumble. And senior corner back Gary Gray was burned several times during the game as the Irish defense couldn't protect a 17-point lead entering the fourth quarter. Kelly said he had no intention of benching the experienced Gray. "We're not at that point with Gary. We're two games into the season. He's got a lot of pride and he's a guy that has shown that he can bounce back from a tough day," Kelly said. "The cornerback position is such that you're put out on an island. Sometimes it doesn't go your way. But I'm very confident Gary is going to bounce back next week." Kelly said switching around his corners is not an option. "You want to be better in coverage, there's no question. But the guys that we've got out there, I promise you there's not three All Americans that we have on the bench," he said. - AP Sports
