Soooooooooooo, where's the Irish?Ended 2010 on a 4 game win streak.
Punked Utah - won at USC - PUNKED MIAMI in the Sun Bowl.
Like Oregon, ND is now playing for a second tier Bowl bid.South Florida 23 ND 20 (almost predictable)
ND beats these guys 9 times out of 10 - at THEIR place. They usually play a couple of stinkeroo games a season - like last year against Tulsa and Navy. You can get away with a couple of games like that in the NFL but not in Div 1. So - SEASON OVER????
You don't win a lot of games with 5 turnovers - 3 in the red zone - one of which was returned the other way for a Bulls TD. (14 point swing)
Real season starts next week at the Big House (Michigan) Think they have an established starter at QB -Tommy Rees.
Should be called the Please No Lightning Bowl.
Hey, don't blame me that ND purposely loads themselves up primarily with patsies every year.
One of the patsies on ND schedule in 1993 was USC - who the Irish whupped for about the about the 10tn straight year.
That's when the Irish still had their luster, despite the fact that they've always loaded their schedules primarily with patsies.One of the patsies on ND schedule in 1993 was USC - who the Irish whupped for about the about the 10tn straight year.
And they also beat a top 5 Michigan team in the Big House .......
The BS BCS has changed everything.Early losses are not always fatal.
I remember back in 1977 - ND lost an early game to Ole Miss - then Devine finally put in Montana and they steamrolled the rest of the way ie 49-17 over USC and 38-10 over Texas in the Cotton Bowl.
