Stanford likely to be without top WR vs. Irish

Heading into Saturday’s matchup with a Notre Dame squad that’s not only ranked seventh in the polls but also possesses one of the top defenses in the country, Stanford will likely be without one of its most productive players on the offensive side of the ball.

Ty Montgomery injured his knee in the win over Arizona this past weekend and head coach David Shaw was decidedly pessimistic as to the wide receiver’s availability against the Irish.

He’s probably not going to play,” Shaw said after practice Tuesday.

Montgomery is currently second on the team in receptions (18) behind tight end Zach Ertz, and is third in receiving yards (168).  He will be replaced in the starting lineup by Jamal-Rashad Patterson, who is fifth on the Cardinal with 100 yards receiving.

    Still plenty of weapons on that offense, the toughest challenge so far for our D , should be a slobberknocker of a game, GO IRISH !!

    Based on stats, I think this is being blown out of proportion. As a team in 5 games, they’ve thrown for 1,151 yards. His 168 accounts for less than 15% of their total. Factor in he has yet to score a TD, and I’m guessing they have other playmakers that are more productive. Will they miss him? Sure. Will/can another player step in and make up for his production? Almost certainly. I’m guessing Stepfan Taylor is of much greater concern to the ND defense than Montgomery would have been. Taylor averages 111 yards rushing per game AND is their 3rd leading receiver, # of catches-wise.

    My worries when it comes to Stanford’s Offense is their RB and 2 large TEs. We stop or slow those three down and their Off loses a ton of its potential bite. This really comes down to wether ND’s front 7 can get pressure on The QB and clog up running lanes. I hope they can do this with 3-5 guys and have the rest cover the pass and edges. Don’t get beat deep.

    ND has given up 534 yards in rushing defense in 5 games. I can see Stanford’s RB’s causing them a problem. They had a hard time containing Denard Robinson.

    Yes and in those 5 games ND faced navy(all about the run) , MSU’s Bell and Denard. That’s some of the best ground attacks in college ball. Add to that not a single rushing TD and NO TDs in 3 games. Nothing but respect for Stanford but I feel ND’s D can get the job done.

    ——–

    True Denards 6 turnovers were sure tough.
    Not too mention stanfords RB is a power runner like Bell from MSU, did you catch that game with ND?

    Haven’t given up a TD in 3 games, and that will continue Saturday.

    Were not SJSU …. 24 to 9 Notre Dame

    It’s good to see the irish back. On another note. This is to all Irsish fans. Call Brian Kelly and tell him never to dress the Irish in those uniforms again. They should be consider a felony.
