It's certainly been a very hard week in South Bend with the death of Declan Sullivan, and while that situation tends to put the importance of college football in perspective, the Irish are trying to move forward on the football field.  Which is going to be a bit harder to do following an injury to quarterback Dayne Crist.

Crist scrambled for 28 yards on a third-and-eight to pick up a first down, but after being knocked out of bounds, he went to the ground clutching his left knee.  He did not return to the game, being replaced by freshman Tommy Rees, and was last seen with his left leg in an air cast and being helped to the locker room.

Notre Dame is not sure of the extent of Crist's injury, but they will be performing x-rays on the leg in the locker room.  It's safe to say that he will not be returning to today's game.

UPDATE: The diagnosis is in for Crist's injury, and it is not good.  He has a ruptured left patella tendon and his season is over.

Can they blame this on Ty Willingham?

Losing Crist would not be such a big deal if ND wasn't so hamstringed in their recruting due to academic requirments. If they were allowed to just take any thug off the street like Navy, Stanford, or Tulsa does, they would have three backups that were just as good. However, ND is simply better than everyone else, as has been clearly displayed by this weeks events, and it is their academic and moral superiority that keeps them from bring able to compete with everyone else.

Exactly. Although it is delighful to watch ND's continuing slide past mediocrity into unfathomable wretchedness.

Yea, that was crazy with a FG kicker who has gone 18 for 18.... Would have been an easy FG!   I take less chances when i am playing Madden!

Too bad for Crist...but he has a habit of getting injuries....also the coach lost the game for them....kick the FG and win the game...pay a guy millions too get wins but he doesnt do it...what a shame
