there should be a point at which Notre Dame losing gets old. Didn't happen with that team that went 3-9 in 2007 because Weis and Clausen were so easy to dislike. That point could be actually be reached with Kelly and Crist/Montana.

The schedule gets a bit easier over the next few weeks, although BC usually plays ND tough. I would think both Utah and USC will be favored; one slip up and ND's looking at another 6-6.

Q: how many Notre Dame fans does it take to screw in a light bulb? A: one, but one willing to stick around 20 years to see if the bulb's really out or just about to Return to Glory.

Win.  Much, much win.

I also recommend the Shaggy Bevo link.

Ummm, what am I missing here?

Georgia's 0-3 in the SEC and just got housed by Mississippi State. It's never good when you lose to a "State" school that's not even named after a state.

Last I checked, Mississippi is a state, and has been since its brief break during the War of Northern Aggression.  It's between Alabama and Louisiana and has abysmal educational standards.

Irish tears make my heart sing. 

And I loved the Texas feature.  Seeing them get destroyed by a crappy UCLA team was the kind of stuff I remember seeing out of Texas for the first 20 years of my life.  They were GOD awful until several years ago.  I remember the knock against Lloyd Carr was that he constantly got 9-3 type seasons from 11-1 type talent.  We were always accused of underachieving but we could always look at Texas and say, "At least we aren't THAT bad." 

I hope to see more Longhorn games that end like this.  I grew tired of hearing about them years ago.

Just wanted to say Wolverine Historian, you are the greatest.  

I was at the 2005 Rose Bowl and the Texas fan base is the most obnoxious group of fans I've ever been around; and I have grown up in New Jersey around all New York sports fans. I'd love to get them in a bowl game while they are weakened and do to them what Vince Young did to us.

I want them Denard to go Vince Young on them in 2 years when they are at the hight of their powers.  Taking down Alabama in Texas, followed by a Longhorn thrashing in a BCS bowl in 2 years would do wonders for our recruiting down there.

Texas fans weren't bad at all. Other than the one guy who said he wished they were playing someone ranked higher, till I reminded him they basically stole the birth from California (yeah, it would have been fun kicking that crap Cali team's ass). Maybe the best bowl game fans I can remember. (Though Washington State's weren't too bad).  Loads better than USC fans.  And a thousand times better than Florida fans. Now THEY suck.

And so not to post another post just to say it, the link is down.  Too many ND and Texas fans complaining crashed it?
