The Fighting Irish Poet is inspired once more.

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.
