Notre Dame 14 USC 10

Now we know what life without Rees would look like. Rees now has 2 wins over USC for his career. So with Rees out, Hendrix finally gets his chance – did not turn out well for him. If only he completed one pass maybe he would have gained confidence but as things now stand, Kelly […]

Notre Dame VS Southern Cal

This is an absolute must win game for ND and for Kelly. Another night game packed with 30 some recruits – many from California very similar to the 2011 game in which ND embarrassed themselves and lost out on a number of 4-5 stars. Important for Kelly since you are not considered a good coach […]

Coming Up USC

It was interesting watching the Arizona USC game for the obvious reason – how would the USC players respond to interim coach Ed Orgeron. They responded quite well, looked fired up and seemed to be glad Kiffin is gone. The final score 38-31 is somewhat misleading – USC led at the half 28-3. STATS: Total […]

Notre Dame 22 USC 13

12 and 0 and going to the BCS Championship game. USC– 6 tries inside the 5, 2 and goal line and 0 points thanks to an incredible goal line stand including a dropped pass. Please extend Kiffin’s contract say for 10 years. Credit really goes to the entire Notre Dame team but special credit once […]

Notre Dame Vs. USC | Predictions 2012

Fast start, fast start and fast start. Notre Dame must come out uptempo and fast, USC could not handle the offenses of Arizona or Oregon–defense just could not keep up, ND must follow that format and score touchdowns and a lot of them to win. USC will be all psyched up at the start but […]

Dreams Crushed

As our current team rated #1 gets ready for the game that will define their season, I am reminded of past horrors the Irish experienced in the LA Coliseum — there were a lot of them but 2 in particular broke many hearts and crushed dreams: 1964–Ara’s first year brought a juggernaut to LA #1 […]


Final regular game for 2012 and Notre Dame is #1, Barkley allegedly won’t play due to an injury to his throwing arm. Hopefully that’s true but don’t be surprised if he has a miraculous recovery if 2nd team QB Max Wittek is not doing very good. Can just see it- Barkley comes in off the […]

Final Final Comments on USC

Everything was in place for the defining victory to catapult ND into BCS discussion and grab a few elite recruits along the way. Didn’t happen on or off the field. This was the year — USC banged up and less talented than ND for the first time in years. The only problem, as I saw […]
