Calhoun lauds Irish D

Air Force coach Troy Calhoun is as impressed with Notre Dame's defense as Notre Dame's coaches are with Calhoun's offense.

Here's Calhoun during his weekly press conference talking about the Irish defense he'll face Saturday when his Falcons visit Notre Dame Stadium.

"They are superb against the run ...," he said. "There were a couple times the Michigan quarterback got loose, which is probably going to happen a few times this year. I go back to last year in November. Utah was a Top 15 team and they held them to three points. Go right on through, Utah, at USC, against Miami in the Bowl game and this year, too. They have not relinquished a whole lot of yards or scores.

"Good group. Very good size. Superb athleticism, guys that were no-doubt highly recruited who have been together a while now. They have continuity. Look at the last six-to-eight games and they have played awfully well as a group."
