A loss to Cincy in week 5
Threatened to stop the Irish drive.
And next up was VA Tech
That could turn the season into a wreck.
The game went to the wire
8 points down late the situation was dire.
But suddenly great in the 2-minute drill
Eureka, the tempo offense was Jack Coan’s skill.
Lesson learned the offense evolved
Kelly hoped his problems were solved.
Sure enough the next three in South Bend
Saw the Irish offense ascend.
Coan’s passing became efficient
Tommy Rees’ play calling omniscient.
Accuracy and no interceptions were tossed
Three went down: Trojans, Tar Heels and Navy all lost.
8-1 it sure feels great
Now, Virginia, G. Tech and Stanford await.
Irish with hopes for a New Year’s six show
Because three are down with three to go.
