Wow....the big 10 is just bad. How did this conference fall off so bad over the last couple years?

I think Sparty is the best team in the conference which doesn't say much because they clearly have their own problems they have to address.

ND might be a measuring stick for both instate programs this season. Will also be interesting to see how ND battles sparty without having to play us the week before.

When we blowout out UMass we should move into the the top 15.  

Tell it to the Indiana Hoosiers.  They tried that (blowing out UMass 45-6 in their own building) and it didn't get them into the Top 25.

Our guaranteed, inevitable, easy win over UMass won't mean a thing.

For some reason it seems that a trend is developing that a loss is means a massive drop in the rankings.  More so than prior seasons.  Might be wrong, just my initial impression.

almost all the teams in college football are close with a few notable exceptions (bama, USC, LSU, etc.). Us being 17th makes sense....I still think we will be the B1G champ as long as Denard throws well.....

Well, the rest of college football might as well just pack their bags and go home now.  Notre Dame is 2-0 and on track to win another National Championship. 

My blathering fool of a neighbor walked by me this morning with his little yapping rat dog said something to the effect of "2-0 feels good, see you in two weeks."  I told him even Rich Rod could beat Notre Dame and I couldn't wait to see Notre Dame fans on the ledge in a few weeks time.
