Notre Dame’s starting qb for the last 6 weeks, Ian Book, is out with an injury this week and Brandon Winbush will be returning to the starting line up after having lost his job to Ian Book due to a lack of offensive productivity.

Sears or Daniels? As Browne pointed out, the Trojans had Sears using only half the field to counter his inexperience. I don’t think that style of play will work a second time when teams have seen how Sears operated. Daniels now has had 8 games experience, so I say go with him.
