A Look Back At 57 Thoughts From July

January 9, 2019

On July 6th, I made a list of 57 things I was curious about heading into the football season. The college football year is officially over and I wanted to take a look back at how I felt the program did in the areas of curiosity. 

1. How good can first-year defensive coordinator Clark Lea be on game day? 

- Better than I expected. There are a new nitpicks here and there but for a first-year coordinator, Lea had the Irish defense playing as well as anyone outside of Clemson. Maybe the most significant piece to Lea’s first season is he was able to get each player to buy into a role and into his message.
