    SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Notre Damesophomore safety Drue Tranquill left Saturday's 30-22 win against Georgia Tech with an apparent right knee injury.

    Fighting Irish defense stuffs Georgia Tech in a resounding victory
    Rapid Reaction from No. 8 Notre Dame's 30-22 victory over No. 14 Georgia Tech, as the Fighting Irish throttled Georgia Tech's rushing attack.



    Tranquill, who tore the ACL in his left knee last November, appeared to hurt his right knee while chest-bumping teammate Joe Schmidt after a crucial third-down pass breakup in the end zone late in the second quarter.

    The Fighting Irish athletic training staff rushed to aid Tranquill, who appeared to be fighting back tears as he was helped off the field.

    After the game, coach Brian Kelly said Tranquill it was too soon to determine the extent of the injury, but he "wasn't optimistic."

    "Doesn't look very good right now," Kelly said. "We only have a manual exam to go on right now. The manual exam was not a good one. But we'll get an MRI tomorrow morning and then we'll have definitive results. But we're not optimistic at this point.

    "Matthias [Farley] went in there and was the next man in again. Unfortunately losing Drue, Drue played very well in the first half, very well. He was on point with his keys, fighting off blocks, making tackles. They wanted to run counter-option based upon what we were doing. We did a great job of stringing it out, fighting off the extra hat."

    That was definitely a "time bomb" injury waiting to happen.

    A little too much celebration for an incomplete pass, in my opinion.

    I thought he would have been asleep with that name. How does one completely rip their knee to shreds by jumping up and down:rip2:

    Clearly, no one in his thread has ever blown out a knee.

    Tore his ACL last year, surgery, then months of physical therapy, then months more of strengthening, finally think you're 100% and blow the knee out again. I doubt the crying was about the pain, more the misery and disappointment that all that work was for nothing and having to do it all over again. And that his dreams have been crushed. People are lucky not to have their worst moment of despair televised, he wasn't so lucky.

    Good luck to him.

    Tore up the other knee this time
    Tranquill, who tore the ACL in his left knee last November, appeared to hurt his right knee while chest-bumping teammate Joe Schmidt after a crucial third-down pass breakup in the end zone late in the second quarter.

    A question to any Notre Dame fans here. Is it worth becoming a black team just for the sake of winning?

    What the fuck nonsense are you spouting? Notre Dame has had black players for ages.

    Notre Dame hasn't won a National Championship since 1988. Predominantly black teams have won the last 27 or so. That was the question. Think more, lash out less. :)

    The incident looked like nothing. So I'm guessing that knee was already far down the road to failure regardless. Poor kid, I feel sorry for him.
