Rewind to 2005. We're reeling in a season in disarray, dropping double-digit leads to both Minny and Wisconsin and then Penn State rolls into town unbeaten and full of confidence.
Then everyone knows what happens next: :01 and Henne finds Manningham in the back of the end zone, we continue the P'wning of PSU and the new math (8+6 = 1) is established.
Now fast forward to last Saturday. A year removed from the Horror, a coaching change later, and a long winter and summer after a 3-9 season that feels like rectum surgery without anesthetics and a pretty good Notre Dame team comes to town. Everyone knows what happens, and if not here:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HtTPPP9tI-o
And my congratulations on coming out of your coma.
It's early but which win feels more satifying the week after and how much momentum does this win give us heading into Big Ten play next week?
IMO having been through last season and after having to spend spring and summer sitting through decommits (Newsome-Beaver), watching Sweatervest pull in another top recruiting class, witnessing the Rosenburg-Dolphinpunch fiasco....this week has felt pretty damn good. Especially in Chicago where Irish flags are missing and Catholic co-workers are quiet since Saturday.
