Notre Dame Practice Highlights from today reveal a LOT of poor tackling

When the smallest guy on the Notre Dame football team, Nico Fertitta, is the only guy showing proper tackling form and technique you know new defensive coordinator Mike Elko has his work cut out for him. Granted we are only looking at a quick highlight video courtesy of Irish Illustrated but it looks like the ND secondary has a LOT of work to do.

Maybe they should focus on the opposition's belt buckle and not their helmets.  Just a thought.

Senior captain Drue Tranquill looked like he was trying to tackle his shadow and not the ball carrier.  No wonder they went 4-8 last year.

The good news is it's just the start of spring practice and they got plenty of time to fix their fuck ups.
