Second Trifecta this year!
Last I checked State won, second in the Big Ten.
I think you're missing a part of the triforce.
Uh, you mean MSU? Not even a rivalry game.
Wouldn't that be a 4 fecta?
*Sigh* A Trifecta includes three relative things. M winning and two other teams losing doesn't make a Trifecta. It's three teams losing that makes it a Trifecta. There were whole posts and half a week of discussion dedicated to this topic...
So if (gawd forbid) M loses and MSU, nd, and OSU lose that is a Trifecta?
Well, that sucks!!!
To hell with the trifecta in that case!
To quote myself: "It's three teams losing that makes it a Trifecta."
Seeing M, MSU, OSU, and Notre Dame lose would make it four teams not three. Thus not a trifecta.
you call it......its worthy of another drink and toast to the football Gods.
I actually would have preferred ND beating USC.
A) M is not going to compete for a BCS bowl unless we win out and then the nd record will not matter.
B) Do you realize that if nd won this game they could very well end up 11-1 (weak opponents ahead)? And, you know what that would mean (endless blah, blah, blah about how great nd is).
I know I'm in the minority, but having grown up in LA and living in LA as a lifelong UM fan and alum, there are few teams I hate more than USC. You want to hear "blah, blah, blah...", spend 5 minutes in LA and listen to every Joe on the street claim how awesome "their" Trojans are. Biggest fair-weather fans in the world. And, as a Michigan fan, we should all despise USC as much as ND (though, I must confess that thus far, Barkley is infinitely more tolerable than Clausen).
im in the same boat... the usc fans r terrible... blah blah blah blah if usc had a loosing record and ucla went undefeated then a lot of them would be ucla fans....
I was glad the Irish lost. The last place I want to see them is in a BCS Bowl.
Trifecta hell. I'm hoping for a Schaderday of my own. MSU is the only blemish so far. M rivals aside, UVA just beat Maryland (rival #2) and VT (rival #1) is losing to GT 21-10 and GT is driving, inside the 30. I'm a Northwestern away from a perfect Saturday.
