DALLAS — For the second time in three years, Notre Dame is preparing for a bowl without its defensive coordinator.
In the 1992 Sugar Bowl, Lou Holtz conjured up a scheme that baffled Florida's high-powered passing game. The Fighting Irish won't need coaching magic this time against Texas A&M's run-oriented offense, but the loss of Rick Minter is a blow.
The Irish gave up fewer than 18 points a game under Minter this season before the second year coordinator took the head coaching job at Cincinnati last month.
But Boston College riddled Notre Dame with a short passing game in the season finale, a 41-39 defeat that probably eliminated the No. 4 Irish (10-1) from the national championship race.
Holtz called that loss the toughest of his career, and he and many players still seemed downcast in the weeks that followed.
"Everybody's attitude is pretty good so far, and I think we're finally over it," salt' defensive tackle Bryant Young, a senior co-captain. "But I'm sure in everybody's mind it's still sticking in their heads that, 'Hey, we lost to BC and we don't want to lose again.'"
Holtz said Monday it has been tough repairing the defense without Minter. He also said leadership will be the key, and that is something the Irish have plenty of this year.
"It is not easy, but ITI tell you this," Holtz said "I’ve been pleased with the progress we've made on defense."
