I admire them all and would consider each a valued colleague. And I might bring a few new perspectives to the bench. … "I'd be the only sitting justice who didn't attend Harvard or Yale, but I am confident Notre Dame could hold its own, and maybe I could even teach them a thing or two about football." — AMY CONEY BARRETT, a nominee for the United States Supreme Court and Notre Dame Law School graduate and current professor "There's no clear answer to the balance question when you have good players and great depth. I think it's kind of similar to the running back position. We have to have selfless players that understand that each and every week is really a different game in itself and how it unfolds. You look at C'Bo Flemister, where he has over 100 yards rushing against South Florida and then he gets three or four snaps. That's hard for a young man, but he's got to understand that we've got talented players and you still have to prepare yourself, but it's a team game. "The same thing at linebacker. They've got to compete and they've got to know that we're going to make decisions, as coaches, that are in the best interest of the team and not necessarily about the individual. Sometimes that is difficult if you're an individual, but you have to understand that is what's best for the team." — Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly on how to balance playing time with so much depth at the running back and linebacker positions "It's doing well. The swelling is down, but it's still a little swollen. Still a little sensitive, but it's doing a lot better. At first when I came out of the game, the biggest issue was I didn't have my contact in, so I was try- ing to get that thing and it was just kind of tough because I was so swollen. I had to run back in the locker room, and try to get it in. It took a full quarter to get in. "In regard to my vision being impaired, I would say it was fine. I could see for the majority of the time, but toward the end of drives it was pretty small, so I had to come off and ice it. I was just happy to be out there, happy I could continue to play." — Notre Dame fifth-year senior left tackle Liam Eichenberg on the black eye he suffered in the win over Florida State "With Notre Dame, North Carolina and Clemson all still undefeated, the ACC is in a strong playoff posi- tion. ESPN's Football Power Index projects the Irish to win each of their remaining games by at least 50 percent, with the exception of Nov. 7 against Clemson (33.9 percent). Even if Notre Dame loses that game, it can still avenge the loss in the ACC championship game if it were to get there and face Clemson. The committee would consider both the ACC champion and Clemson." — ESPN College Football Playoff reporter Heather Dinich OF THE WEEK ➤ "We see you @ShaunCrawf20 working!
