How good of a pass rush do they have?
It's ok - they've opted for more size on the line and used the linebackers like Alabama does.
Here are all the key numbers: http://alabama.247sports.com/Article/A-complete-statistical-comparison-of-Alabama-and-Notre-Dame-106069

Didn't someone post a link or thread that had some ND games and highlights in it? If so, anyone care to link it for me. I haven't been able to find it by looking back in old threads.
The have a couple of bosses on the DLine in DE- #7 Stephon Tuitt (6'6", 305) and #9 Louis Nix (6'3", 330) as they are both likely top 10 picks in the 2014 Draft. Tuitt is good against the run and in the pass-rush (11 sacks in 12 games).
Front 7 will be the best we face all year in terms of skill (3 top 10 overall picks in front 7) and discipline. Weakness is the secondary and I think we beat them with AJ to Cooper. Hard to stop the run and the pass.

They have got some horses up front. They may not have the best all around D we've faced (secondary) but their front 7 will be the best we've seen all year.
In no way am I buying that ND's front seven is better than LSU's or more talented than UGA's.
Eat clean. Train Hard.
Thanks man. I've actually watched ND quite a bit this year. However, it has just been for entertainment purposes only and I haven't paid a lof of attention to the small details b/c I never thought we would play them. I agree that Nix and Tuitt are very good.
