I couldn't imagine the stress and excitment of watching OSU and U-M facing off both undefeated. I would do anything to see it no matter what the result was.



I remember when Michigan and Michigan State were undefeated. The hype was outrageous for the game. Magnify that by 10 million and you would have the ultimate game.

If I'm not mistaken, Notre Dame is looking for a slightly easier schedule in the coming years. The insanely hard schedule has caused much of the Irish's problems in the last 10 years. I doubt they add Ohio State to that schedule unless they're gonig to give up playing Florida State or Tenn on a regular basis.

I really hope ND goes undefeated. They came so close, how MSU and USC squeaked past them is beyond me. That ND/USC game is probably one of the top ten non-bowl games of all time.

Last season's ND-USC game might the only time in my life I've rooted for ND...even when they play Michigan I'd just assume both lost. That game was absolutely incredible.

The schedule is not the problem, its mostly been coaching.

I'm sick of ND fans always mourning over their schedule. They want an easy schedule but at the same time they don't want to join a conference. Your going to have to choose one or the other. I don't think ND will go undefeated like many are predicting. They play Penn State, Geogia Tech, Michigan, Michigan State, and USC to name some hard ones. If they do go undefeated Charlie Weiss is one of the best coaches ever.

It would be amazing to watch a 11-0 ND play a 11-0 USC going into the final week.

Penn State and Ga Tech have proven nothing to me. They could very easily have a 7-4 just as likely as a 10-1 season. USC has the best WRs in the country with Jarrett and Steve Smith. They need a QB and running game. I think USC will be 9-2 at worst. Michigan State only plays ND tough in South Bend which is bad news bc this game is in East Lansing. I would find it hard to believe that Michigan wouldnt be undefeated, heading into that ND game and the wolverines should have a better season then last year. Bottom line. ND can get it done this year and I don't see any reason why they won't meet up with the Buckeyes in a rematch of last year's Fiesta Bowl, only in the National Championship Game this year.

Two teams that I think could play in the N.C game this year that no one has talked about- Va Tech and LSU. I agree ND, OSU, and USC have great chances of going there, but I think VT/LSU could go as well. Florida too maybe, but you always lose a few games in the SEC.

I dont see Virginia Tech doing it....I know Eddie Royal (he was friends with my g/f and high school) and Shawn Glendon (back up QB) and they said last year was their year and they didnt get it done. Plus VT usually chokes away a game or two.

with all the good teams in the ACC, you always lose a few games in the ACC too. Va Tech can easily have a letdown against FSU or Miami.

Its a shame for Walker. Walker was a very good coach. He got by far the worst talent in the Big 10 every year, and yet NW still made bowls and could give every team in the leauge a run for its money. I always wondered what Walker could do with a team like MSU or Ill.

I'll never forget that Michigan-Northwestern game from 5 years ago or so. Northwestern had it won then the guy drops that pass in the endzone. Then Michigan had it won and the A Train inconceivably fumbles with 70 yards of open field in front of him. And of course Northwestern ended with a touchdown with less than 30 seconds left. 54-50...what a classic.
