While Ian Book will finish his career at Notre Dame behind Brady Quinn (2003-06) in most of the school’s all-time passing statistics, what has been somewhat overshadowed is how productive and effective Book has been as a dual-threat figure. Last weekend’s 45-3 victory at Pitt was a prime example. Versus a fierce Pitt pass rush that ranked second in the country with five sacks per games, Book on numerous occasions kept the Panthers at bay with his improvisation.
