    Fighting Irish now 0-5! Nice to know they're getting their $50 million's worth of performance from Weis. Funny that they could be winning with players Willingham recruited, but can't do squat with players Weis gets. Weis is an offensive guru, but his team hasn't scored 20pts yet. Meanwhile they give up 33 a game.

    As a PAC-10 fan, I'm enjoying every loss ND racks up. Serves them right for firing Willingham after one bad season and then jumping the gun for Weis (10yr/$50 million) winning with Willingham's guys.

    Hope UCLA clobbers them next week. Go PAC-10!

    Weis was given a huge, long term contract after one year. That was retarded. You never judge a coach after one year bad or good.

    Willingham went 10-2 his first year there as well. No huge contract extension for him.

    You simplify how far he went down though in the next two seasons though. He went 5-7 the next year and 4 of those losses were blow outs which are not suppose to occur at Notre Dame. His 3rd season he went 6-5 which was also a bad year considering the manner in which they were losing games. So he really had two bad seasons.

    Willingham is not exactly tearing it up at Washington now either. He so far has gone 2-9 and 5-7. This year I would be surprised if they finish above .500 I think Willingham is overrated actually. He had 2 good seasons at Stanford, 2 okay ones and 3 bad ones.

    I can't believe ABC is going to torture fans by showing the UCLA-ND game. ND was LUCKY to win that one last year. This year it might be a ho-hum affair. The wager should be if ND can get more than 14 points. UCLA's speed is going to cause all sorts of hell for those guys.

    ND will probably have to wait until they play the service academies for their first win. At least they keep the contract money they're getting from NBC....haha

    Willingham did okay against USC today, only losing by 3.

    I am glad Notre Dame, the most OVERRATED team in college football IMO are losing. It's a little piece of heaven and even better to expose Weis for what he really is...

    It's one bad year, give em a break. I'm not a major ND fan but I don't hate them either.

    Weis isn't that big of a deal really...a lot of people don't even recognize him. He walked through my high school and I bet the bulk of the people had NO idea who he was. He was there to recruit our best player (who ended up going there...currently redshirted)

    Oh my! UCLA really needs to dump the coach. They got OWNED by an inept ND squad. ND didn't do anything on offense (148yds), but their defense did all the dirty work to get the points.

    I'm still LMAO at you Notre Dame. But as a USC fan, I can at least LMAO at the Bruins. If only USC didn't lose to STANFORD today...argh! :(

    Oh, and ND only had 1 significant drive on offense for a FG. The other points came directly or indirectly from their defense. So ND's offense really only mustered 3 points.

    Did you watch the game? Starting QB got owned in the end of the 1st or beginning of the 2nd. A freshmen replacement had to be used.

    I did watch the game. I saw Olsen going down. That sucked. I thought he was suffering from a groin pull when I saw that injury occur. But apparently it's his knee. And even then ND had to settle for a FG despite getting the ball at the UCLA 1 yd line. PATHETIC!

    This was here last week. I thought UCLA would steamroll ND, but that didn't happen. UCLA's offense got outscored by ND's defense. The replacement QB for UCLA played lousy, but that's where I blame UCLA's coach. He should have ran the ball at Notre Dame seeing that the Irish can't stop the run. When they tried that, they got good yardage. But then UCLA would either get penalties or fumble the ball away. UCLA's defense did a great job against ND. But the offense cost them dearly.

    You know the new QB is going to mess up, but I LMAO'd when the QB threw a perfect pass into the end zone and the receiver had butterfingers. Instead of getting 7, they ended up tossing an INT on 4th and goal. UCLA has 6 TO's in the game and basically gave the game away. UCLA still has never beaten Notre Dame. And probably won't for as long as Dorell "we lose everytime we get into the top 25" is leading them.

    Neither team deserved to win based on how lousy both teams played on offense. USC will beat both those low-life squads up, so I couldn't care less who won this one. Nice to see UCLA fans covering their faces and watching the Rose Bowl go silent.

    UCLA is still ahead of USC in the PAC-10 standings. :( But UCLA always does a half-@$$ job with their football program, so maybe they'll get to the Holiday Bowl this time. What's the difference between Cheerios and Notre Dame? Cheerios belongs in a bowl. :)

    Their starting QB wasn't having much luck, either, although he didn't throw all those TD passes for Notre Dame as the 3rd stringer did.
    By the way, Karl Dorrell sucks. I've been saying that for 4 years and I will continue to say that.

    i think its pretty funny too. lol they one their game today and now are 1-5 lol. i think it was the quarterback, but could've been someone else, but they were holding up their pointer finger saying they are number 1 and i thought it was funny cause they're 1-5. but he could've been trying to say one game, one game thats all we're gonna win this season.

    I'm keeping this thread up until the end of Notre Dame's miserable season. It wouldn't surprise me to see the service academies slap them around. Before that, they face Boston College.

    Two overhyped Catholic schools duke it out. BC comes from the ACC, last year's weakest BCS conference. BC wants to really kick the cr@p out of its hated rival. ND's offense is allergic to scoring and moving the ball. I don't see BC turning the ball over 6 times like that pretentious LA school (U*LA) did yesterday, so here's to 1-6 you whiny Irish.

    Yeah, the general consensus is that compared to 'S.C.', ND and UCLA are "low-lifes." :razz:

    In other words, one of the greatest centers in the history of basketball, and one of the most popular talking heads (for better or worse) in the NBA are prime examples of UCLA graduates. And neither drove a Ford Bronco. Ha.

    USC's last football national title: 2004
    Notre Dame's: 1988
    UCLA: 1954

    USC's last bowl win: 2006
    Notre Dame: 1993 (0-9 since then)
    UCLA: 2005 (the oh so prestigious Sun Bowl)

    Take that, baby Bears. Enjoy playing with your "Rex Grossman" at the helm. As for the crying Irish, I won't rub it in any further, for now. ;)

    I'm not a Bruin (and I hate Notre Dame), but the idea of a SC alumni crowing the week of The Biggest Upset Ever is just weak, man.

    Petros on 570 was right about Karl Dorrell, though. QB injuries had been an issue all year with the Bruins, but it didn't seem like Dorrell had prepared the 3rd string in case this would happen. It wasn't as the warning signs weren't there. The guy they put out, a redshirt, was flat-out unprepared for this game, and the blame largely should go to Dorrell.

    The part about Dorrell I agree. Even then, UCLA should have ran the ball at Notre Dame the whole game. There was no reason to bother throwing as ND gives up over 200 yds/game on the ground. When you put a new QB in, you run so you make the QB more comfortable. It's not Dorrell's fault the team had over 10 penalties, but he should have done more and better prepared his backup QB.

    Nice (unintentional) jeu de mot~!!!! If it wasn't for your 'u.s.c. trojan' affiliation, I'd have thought you meant that one! :razz:

    BC did take the money and ran (joining the ACC), so I'm no fan of theirs. That said, when I think RANKINGS and "U.S.C." comes to mind, I think: why of course!.......SOUTH CAROLINA! :)

    1. LSU
    2. Cal
    3. Ohio State
    4. Overhyped 'Catholic' school (not "overhyped school" but "overhyped 'Catholic' school"--what was THAT all about?)
    5. SOUTH Florida
    6. Oklahoma
    7. SOUTH CAROLINA (USC!)
    8. West Virginia
    9. Oregon Quackers
    10. u.s.c.


    tricky: nice "Ford Bronco" joke. lol :)

    Agreed, and that's part of Dorrell's MO. When sheet hits the fan, what does Dorrell always do? Look at his hard board. Looks at it some more. Keeps looking at it until his team loses by 20 to a high school team. He just didn't seem like a "Plan B" person.

    Truth is, I'm mad at SC. Even though I'm a Cal alumni and grew up a Buckeye fan, SC is the unofficial football team of South California (sorry Chargers!) I'm mad thay they put themselves into a hole like this, when game after game, the warning signs were there. The Pac-10 is maybe the 2nd toughest conference this year; with all of their problems, they'll have to fight their way out of a hole just to win the Pac-10. I was hoping that we would get 2 Pac-10 reps in the BCS, one vying for the title, and the other representing the Pac-10 in the Rose Bowl.

    That said, it was really eerie watching both UCLA and ND fans cheering wildly when the score went up. Has that EVER happened?

    I refuse to root for the Chargers. 49er fan for life! That and the Chargers will make playoff appearances every 5-7 years while being dreadful in between. They fire a coach after a 14-2 season and now they have a weak offense, a dodo-bird coach, and an overhyped LT/PR combo that's not doing much of anything. USC is the football team of SoCal, by far!

    It's still possible for the Pac-10 to get 2 BCS bids. At this point Cal is running the table, but their defense needs to improve. The only remaining threats for them are USC and Arizona St. USC will need to bump off Oregon somehow because I don't see them beating Cal this year. Oregon almost always crashes and burns the 2nd half of the season. So it might be Cal and USC/Arizona St. making it to BCS bowls.

    The ND and UCLA fans cheering at the USC score was just WRONG! Next thing you know USC and UCLA fans might cheer seeing the Az. Wildcats lose a b-ball game. I just might create a LMAO@UCLA thread just for retribution. Still I was mad at USC for goofing that one up. Booty the last two weeks has been aiming like a Grossman pupil (8 INTS!!), so they need to run more.

    Growing up I liked the Wa. Huskies, but went to UCLA for two years (hated it there as I wanted to go to USC), and been a USC fan for about 10 years. So I have no problems with UCLA wetting its bed with Dorrell.

    ND drops to 1-6. New QB, still same result. Boston College didn't impress me at all with their play. Then again, Notre Dame's offense is so inept that BC didn't have to do much of anything.

    Notre Dame's team probably couldn't score on Appalachian State at this point. Their defense scores more than their offense, which is just sad.

    OUCH! Just when I thought I was having a good day, the PAC-10 got its butt kicked. Cal and ASU bit the dust, while USC barely escaped with its own.

    I'm mad at the PAC-10 right now. :( We're only going to get one BCS team and have to witness teams like tOSU and SOUTH FLORIDA running the table....EWWW!

    I knew USC would beat ND, but 38-0!!! OUCH! I'm almost beginning to feel sorry for the Irish fans. Even 'SC folks would like to see a decent ND team. When does ND's TV contract with NBC expire?

    This is a crazy football season. Seems like elite teams are just getting dropped every week. IF USC can run the table, we might make it to the title game after all. We bloodied ND the way this team should have been playing all year. We need to cut down on the penalties and TO's, but just staying alive is the goal now.

    I knew both teams had lousy defenses, but I was surprised to see that many points put up. Weis got outcoached, outsmarted, outexecuted, and his team got outplayed by a bunch of scrappy guys that played with heart. ND could learn a few things from Navy today.

    This nightmare never ends. ND now 0-6 at home. The service academies won the season series vs. ND. Can army complete the sweep? Will Notre Dame fire their defensive coordinator and/or add some of the band members to the defense? ND is showing they can score, but they couldn't stop a teletubby from scoring.

    North Texas put up 62 (and lost!) on Navy which makes Notre Dame's loss even more embarrassing. That 10 year extension for Weiss is looking better all the time :)

    I saw that score earlier too and I dropped my jaw... 136PTS! And there was no overtime involved. Maybe North Texas decided to duplicate the strategies Weis used: forget playing defense, remember it's only a service academy we're dealing with, muscle and image are EVERYTHING.

    When was the last time Navy had more wins than ND? ND has as many wins as Duke this year and one less than Syracuse. This just gets better every week.

    Unfortunately Ty Willingham is having his 3rd straight losing season at Washington at 3-7 with only one Pac 10 win over lowly Stanford. He is on nobody's short list for a new head coach.

    Notre Dame sucks! So does Charlie Weiss!

    Notre Dame has always given a coach a 5 year contract and never fired a coach before the full 5 years were up, no matter how bad the team’s record until Ty Willingham.

    Charlie Weiss is completely over-rated as a coach. His first 2 years at Notre Dame the team had a decent record and went to BCS games but that was Ty Willingham's recruiting class. Now the team on the field is a class recruited by Charlie Weiss...

    ND and CW both suck!

    Notre Dame has wins against the East and West Coast (PAC-10 and ACC). Too bad they were against the lower tiered squads (UCLA, Duke) and not the higher end ones (USC, Boston College). Had they lost to Duke, there would have been an Amber alert for Weis. That or an exorcism being conducted in South Bend with Weis as the human sacrifice.
