For 35 Minutes We Were -- #1 Team in America

Muffet's Fighting Irish were in control with 5 minutes to go...
  • 10 straight missed shots
  • Bad defense
  • And, the IRISH gave away an 11 point lead in the 4th quarter...

The Curse of Bobby Lane Strikes Detroit Again!

This is a classic -- they can't even blow the building up...

The former home of the Detroit Lions for 27 seasons -- still stands -- as an attempt to blow up the Pontiac Silverdome, failed this morning.

We should have expected this -- as the Lions have failed more often than not since 1957.  The 27 Lions team that called the Pontiac Silverdome home were a combined 175 - 238 - 1 those seasons.

Pretty pathetic.

The curse of Bobby Lane -- strikes again!

FYI:  I am a life-long Detroit Lions fan...


Why ND Fans Should Hope Alabama Gets In...

This is a no-brainer.

If Alabama gets the fourth College Football Playoff slot it proves the following:
  • You don't need to win a conference title to make the CFB Playoff
  • You don't need to play 13 games to make the CFB Playoff
  • And, you only need wins over 10 FBS opponents* to make the CFB Playoff

*Note: The Big Ten / Ohio State crowd will argue that (11-1) Alabama only has 10 wins this season against FBS opponents -- with an "exhibition win against Mercer" on November 18th.

So, I'm rooting for the following to happen today during the NOON ET hour:
  • Alabama gets the 4th ranking
  • Notre Dame gets the Citrus Bowl on New Year's Day vs. LSU
  • And, further proof that a Conference Championship is not required to play for a National Championship
