Following his season worst and probably career worst game at Michigan where Notre Dame was ran over by the Wolverines by a score of 45-14, many called for Phil Jurkovec to replace Ian Book.
As they should have.
A performance of that standard against Notre Dame’s biggest rival was terrible and the call for change from many fans was seemingly just. Book was not good enough on the day, and his stat line showed it; 8 of 25 for 73 yards and one TD.
However, Book seems to have turned a new leaf since that horrible night at Michigan.
