always makes me smile.  My wife is the daughter of a very proud ND alum.  This was her first game at the Big House and it brought her over from the darkside to actually root for my (our) beloved team.  She was amazed by the passion (and I think the tailgating probably helped!).

how he just escapes everyone. Once he breaks that gap zoom he's gone. Tate's touchdown run is epic too when he fakes it and runs up the middle! This game had me running around my house screaming in joy when we won. God I can't wait for this season to start!

And turner was worse than him because he didn't even see the field. Cross those two guys off the list of guys that would have helped us had they still been on the team....

In a very odd way, watching how bad Cissoko was makes me feel better about this year.

endzone that got reversed I honestly thought he was in bounds but the other angle looked completely different with his foot just slightly on the line. You could tell by Weis's stare he was saying in his mind "what the hell?"

A million times. And two things always strike me:

1. Just before the U-M touchdown to take the lead back, the camera has a tight shot of RR. The intensity in his eyes tells me everything I need to know about the man. He is Our Coach, and damn, damn good one.

2. How emotional I get seeing Matthews make that catch. I still get choked up.

I love that team.

The other thing about this game is that although everyone talks about how our secondary got picked apart, ND had elite level players across the board in the passing game. Clausen was a first round pick and so was Golden Tate. Floyd is IMO better than Tate and Kyle Rudolph will be a first round pick TE. And we were playing a freshman CB playing in his second college game in Cissoko. My mom could scheme out successful pass plays with that talent.
