Work in progress

The conversion from running back to receiver for Notre Dame's Theo Riddick is taking a little longer than expected.

But the sophomore said he is not getting frustrated.

"I think we all did in a sense," Riddick said of expecting his production to be better quicker. "It is still a process. I'm still going out there and working hard, and I just want to do anything to get a victory."

Notre Dame receivers coach Tony Alford said Riddick is coming along.

Alford said Riddick is still working on where to settle on his routes and being able to read and discern coverages faster, but the coach is expecting everything to start clicking for Riddick soon.

"He has shown improvement," Alford said. "He has done some good things blocking, and he is in the right place. He is more often than not in the right place at the right time, that doesn't necessarily mean the ball is coming to him. If the ball doesn't come to him, it doesn't mean he's not in the right place. It is just kind of how it works out.

"He's got play-making ability. That is the kind of guy we want at that position."
