ND won't beat USC if Matt Barkley plays. ND is in a close one with MSU right now.

Pau Gasol is GONE

MSU's QB chokes and throws and INT right when they were in scoring position. Man, sucks to be him right now.

Pau Gasol is GONE

ND moves up to 3-1, but they've won only one convincingly despite, I think, their being significantly better than all the teams they've faced this year. Their offense rolls all over the field until they get into scoring position. There, they're very limited in terms of play selection and keep going for the "jump ball = win" strategy. It's put one receiver out for the year and had Tate taking a bunch of damage he shouldn't have been subjected to.

4-1, time for a break so they can let some injured guys heal a bit. I don't blame voters for not putting ND in the top 25. They haven't been convincing. The O has been pretty clutch though. And Clausen has really impressed me.

What is that? 8 losses in a row now against USC? 0-5 now for Charlie as coach of Notre Dame against them? Damn.

USC should've won this game by way more by the way. For whatever the reason, they just had a mental lapse & let up a bit, letting ND come back a bit in the game. They were fortunate (ND) it was even that close, the final score. It was funny though how USC had to celebrate twice and ND had to put their heads down twice due to the clock thing there at the end of the game.

Classy USC fans. "Should have won by way more..." Sure they should have. In the fantasy land where Pete Carroll, Reggie Bush, and Matt Leinart carry you around on a sedan chair and the Song Girls feed you grapes. In reality, ND almost tied it...and it could have gone either way.

^ You know they let up, especially with that accidental & unnecessary INT thrown by Barkley late in the game, but credit to ND, they didn't just roll over once they went down by a ton, they kept fighting whether USC indeed let up a bit or not.

ND is not on USC's level.

^ Real talk. Lost 8 in a row against us now and most have been disgusting blowouts. This past one could've been too, but like I said combination of credit to ND for not giving up and USC letting up a bit.

Irish win a squeaker against Boston College. They move to 5-2.

Clausen has another impressive but not spectacular game.

Through 7 games, Clausen has put up:

150/230 passes (65.2%), 2050 yards, 16 TDs, 2 INTs

Irish finally put a game away before the final moments. They're 6-2, may move up to #20 in the BCS. Haven't seen a poll yet.

Another year, another couple of losses to teams they had no business losing to. I can handle the USC loss because, although they showed me they were every bit as good as USC on that day, prior to the game I didn't think they would be able to hang. Michigan and Navy? Come on, man.

Best Irish can hope for is 9-3, a respectable bowl game.
Best Clausen can hope for is next year.

Incidentally, I still support Charlie Weis.
He's 35-24 (.593), but he had that one miserable season. If the Irish can win three of their next four games (including the bowl game they get), that will give Weis three 9-wins seasons in five years. He has to get better at filling the blanks after the graduation of a big piece (the 3-9 record when Quinn left was unacceptable).

The losses mount, the cries for Weis's head reach a fever pitch. I'm disappointed.

At the very least, Weis needs someone to put together an offensive and defensive game plan. He's good at putting together an overall plan, but his unwillingness to adapt to in game data is just mind-boggling.

Irish 6-4, another mediocre season. I don't know that an 8-4 season, even with a Bowl win, would save him. While I wouldn't be opposed to an ouster, I want someone very good if we're going to move on.

Possibly Weis's last game. I'll admit that I have very little confidence in this team.

Another loss. Four straight losses. Must find a palatable coach who takes at least SOME interest in D.

First time since 2000 that the Irish have scored 20+ points in every regular season game. That year, the Irish were 9-2. This year, 6-6.
Clausen has hit on 68% of his passes, 3800 yards, 28 TDs, 4 INTs, and has run for 3 more TDs.
Tate: 1500 yards receiving, 15 TDs.
Floyd: 100+ yards receiving in five of the 7 games he has played.
Insane offense, zero defense. It's pathetic.

I would like to see John Gruden get the job. Chucky in south bend would be something to see.

I'd love Gruden, but he seems not to be interested. Sounds like Kelly is the guy.
