Stadium and Main: It's Notre Dame week

Sunday, September 10, 2006

It's Notre Dame week

This is a HUGE game. The national perception is that ND is on the rise, and Michigan is on the decline. One game might not change that, but it can do a heck of a lot. And while I might expect a loss to ND, I can't accept one. Too many people seem to be thinking that a loss here is OK. Seriously. Seriously? Since when did we become Bowling Green (or Duke, or Michigan State (cheap shot))? There are no moral victories for us. I know, I know... Lllloyd sux, Weis is a geeenius, and Zbikowski has a mohawk so he's better this year. But, come on. We're MICHIGAN. Can we act like it for one game. Just one? Lloyd?... God?... Ganesh?...

Stuff you might have missed if you had to go to a wedding or whatever:

The Big Ten didn't have a great weekend, but the ACC is kinda looking like poop. Akron over N.C. State. Virginia barely beats Wyoming in Overtime (thanks to a missed Extra Point). Florida State almost lost to Troy. Troy was up 17-10 more than halfway through the 4th. And in related news, the writers take the victory this week in the back-and-forth battle for "which pollsters are dumber - writers or coaches?" FSU stays at #9 in the AP.

Ohio State looked pretty darn good, particularly on Offense, but talk about boring! For a #1 vs. #2 game, that didn't live up to the hype.

Iowa's Drew Tate didn't play, and they struggled without him. I watched both Overtimes, and it was hilarious to see Syracuse choke 7 straight times(!!) at the goal line.
