Notre Dame is one win away from bowl eligibility.
Compare that with last season’s across-the-board, worst-ever season. We’re talking progress. Big time. This group still isn’t out of Cotton Bowl consideration, for gosh sakes.

Slow and slippery, at times, but still progress.
ND’s offense is averaging 133 yards more per game than it did in 2007. Sure, you’re saying it has to be better, considering the Irish were dead last in total offense last season. Still, improvement is improvement. Notre Dame’s has been significant. The offense is up to No. 50 nationally.
Scoring is up, too — it’s 48 percent better — from 16.42 points per game to 24.33.
