    Exactly how I feel with Notre Dame right now...we can't even put up a solid lead on a non division 1 opponent, and Jimmy Clausen is simply the dumbest starting QB in Irish history.

    Wow is it possible that the Irish are even worse than last year? At what point do people realize that Charlie Weis sucks as a coach?

    wow Washington just got jipped by the refs...

    Washington trailed BYU 21-28 with 2 minutes left, they managed to put together a 18 play 80 yard drive, score with 2 seconds left on the clock. The QB for Washington (the one who scored, dives in the endzone, as he gets up throws the ball in the air, and starts celebrating with his teammates. The refs call Unsportsmanlike Conduct, 15 yard penalty assessed on the Extra point. So now Washington has to kick a 35 yard extra point. Of course its blocked and BYU wins the game.

    The new rules about celebration are dumb, and its getting out of hand. This game was decided by the refs. I hope the NCAA takes a look at this and makes sure they end this retarded rule ASAP.

    Well if it's blocked it's blocked. It's not like it being shorter would have mattered. At least I don't think it would. Maybe, I'm not a kicker.

    Wow. Tough luck for San Diego State. Fumble OVER the goal line for what would have been the game sealing TD goes Notre Dame's way and now Notre Dame is going to win.

    It could be all mental..The Snappers mental state changes, the holders, everything changes when you back them up 15 yards and tell them to kick a 35 yarder instead of the traditional extra point.

    I love everyone picking USC. I'm very confident OSU wins. Losing Wells hurts no question but there's something nobody is talking about, Sanchez vs. our D. How many big games has Sanchez started? 0. I don't care about our game against Ohio, we always struggle with Ohio, Akron, Cincinnati, just because we overlook them and those players play well above their head. We'll be ready for this game for sure. Who exactly are the USC receivers? None of them impress me. And this "USC Stable of running backs" doesn't impress me either. Who is their Reggie Bush or Chris Wells? They don't have one. Only thing that worries me is if Todd Boeckman screws up like he has the potential to do, then it will hurt. We can't lose the turnover battle.

    What's he done so far that's impressive? One 100 + yard rushing game and zero multi TD games.
