Here's some of what's being written about Notre Dame as the Irish approach their game against Navy on Saturday:
The Notre Dame offensive line has made great progress this year, Brian Hamilton writes in the Chicago Tribune.
"It was a concern when I got here, because I know they were like -- for lack of a better term -- abused," Irish offensive line coach Frank Verducci said. "It was like they'd been locked in the closet."
With Dayne Crist injured, Charlie Weis is happy that Evan Sharpley came back, Brian Hanley says in the Chicago Sun-Times.
Former starting offensive lineman Dan Wenger is back in the mix this week with the injury to Trevor Robinson, Al Lesar writes in the South Bend Tribune.
The Irish defense thinks it's ready for the Navy triple-option, Tony Krausz writes in the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette.
Despite all the drama on the field, the 2009 team has been remarkably drama-free outside the lines, John Walters writes for AOL Fanhouse.
