Anyone else see the ND defensive lineman punch the Pitt player right in the head on 3rd down before the missed field goal? Three refs were right there and didn't make the call.

Probably had something to do with the fact that it would have given Pitt a first down on the 10 yard line and essentially ended ND's undefeated season. 

No one is winning @ND this season. Only Alabama and Oregon could overcome the refs there.

If LSU can beat Bama, we can end on a high note after a day of horrible non-Michigan games.

Not that it will matter. Even with a loss, Bama will go to the title game just like last year.

I can't wait.

Unless the Ducks lose they will jump ND tomorrow.  They will get a boost in the computers from playing SC and pitt will dent ND computer ranking. The human poles in my opinion will significantly widen the gap between the other 3 unbeatens and ND tomorrow.  triple overtime against a team that lost to youngstown state, a bad division 2 team

USC blocks the extra point to keep their deficit to a manageable (assuming Oregon finds a way to not be Oregon for a few drives) 16 points in the 2nd quarter. Barkley had his, "Well, I suppose that's something..." look on the sideline when they had the camera aimed at him...

Oregon looks unreal.  Even after a huge negative play, they don't even seem to mind.  They're absolutely certain they'll pick up 20 the next play and it won't even matter.  And they do.

If LSU pulls this out, to hell with the bcs Oregon is no.1 in my mind. They straight shred.

Honestly, I sort of want ND to win out and play Oregon. Glup hehe

It took some doing, but USC managed to cut the lead to 27-17 thanks to some good reads from Barkley. That being said, Marcus Mariota just set up Oregon inside the USC 15, and the Ducks scored on the next play. I assume Monte Kiffin is in the booth trying to devise some play wherein the Oregon offense is abducted by aliens on and end around at this point.

I didn't know if I should make a new thread about this, but did anyone hear what Narduzzi said about Denard?  

Narduzzi on Martinez: "He's faster than Denard, even though he thinks he's as fast as (Usain) Bolt.  (Martinez is) flat out faster."

That douchebag will never get a HC position.
