wow what a game!

11 posts in this topic

I know ND haters are going to be Haters but still no one can take away what this team has done this year. and todays game i think came very close to giving me a heart attack. but we have not played well at home this year and fair better on the road which means alot concidering there is not a single bowl game in south bend. Pitt may not be ranked but they were a trap game and they have played us tough the last 4 or 5 years and had won 2 of the last 3 (before todays game) in southbend. in the end an ugly win is a win. 9-0 and prob wont stay number 3 in the BCS pole but thats fine, im not expecting a championship this year, just a BCS bowl game. still i tip my hat to Pitt. they didnt back down and did not show fear in playing againt a number 3 team and fought very hard until the end.

scary thought is 1993 is starting to flash through my head right now!!! we beat number 1 FSU just to turn around and lose to Boston College the next weekend.....and who do we got next weekend???? Boston College lol.

Omg...that was torture. I can't believe they pulled that off. On the bright side it should bring the team closer together. I could be wrong but I don't think any of the other undefeateds have had to reach down deep for a close game. Mike Mayock said this stuff happens for teams of destiny. =)

yeah but youngstown st also did not just come off a major road victory against OU. this was a trap game for ND because of just that. and they havent been that good at home this year anyway. they have been far more impressive away from south bend. and good thing about that is, no bowl game is in south bend lol

alot of people dont want to understand this was a trap game for ND. they just got done beating OU 30-13 they were bound to have a rough game. hopefully they got it out of their system and they take these next two against Boston college and Wake Forest alot easier then todays game. im also shocked USC is hanging with Oregon right now. i wont be surprised if Oregon loses, just like last year.

No, now you are totally wrong... EVERYONE seen this as being a "trap" game... and the GREAT TEAMS DRILL the trap team.

ND is just a very good team. Pitt totally imploded in this game.

ND has very little room for error.

ND was outplayed,... Mayock even said it.

Gift....

USC was the preseason No 1, with a great QB, great offense, and Oregon just chewed up their defense, so its no surprise that SC was hanging with Oregon If not for the last second gimme TD, it would have been exactly as I predicted..17 points. ND is a very good team, and had a let down week, but I don't even think Bama can stop the Ducks offense. With 2 out of the next 3 games, against top 20 teams, (Stanford and Oregon State). If Oregon can win those games and stay undefeated, they should be #2 by the end of the year..Number 1 if LSU can hold onto their lead with 10 minutes left.

Gonna be an interesting next few weeks in college football...

(Imagine the offensive shootout if its K-State and Oregon in the BCS championship..)

how do you figure??? ND missed a fg and an extra point and if those were made the game would have been over in regulation with the final score 24-20. if anything a gift was handed to pitt and they couldnt finish out.

Can't wait for the Civil War game in Corvallis. Ducks should win, but know that the Beaver defense be surprisingly strong.

    • Yeah, my wife would agree with you. She wants to move to Gulf Shores Alabama. We vacation there from time to time. 
    • I am not sure Whitner would be beaten out by Geathers... Whitner has a solid career of playing at a high level.. Geathers has been a fill in and for me was our biggest single question mark in the secondary this year;  We'd be MUCH improved with Whitner on board and let the best player start.  I wouldn't count Whitner out on that battle.  
    • Fact: Castonzo was lousy last year by his own admission.   Fact: We have a rookie Center who hasn't had a single live practice yet.  How often do people talk about the reality that you can't really learn much from OTA's and No Pad Practices?  Fact: We had Reitz last year as well as Mewhort (one of my favorite players) but the line was still lousy anyway. Fact: Thornton has not performed to date and is injury prone.  And to even mention Harrison's name PROVES we are in deep trouble if he EVER sees the field again as a starter on the O Line because he was by far the worst player on our team who saw action last year on the O-Line.     Look, everyone could play amazingly and we could have the best line in NFL history.  But history suggests if 4 of the 5 starters come back from last year's terrible performing bunch AND the fifth is a rookie who hasn't played a down or even had a padded practice yet, it is hard to suggest we are improved over last year.  There is no evidence let alone proof.  You guys are all hoping these guys outperform what they did last year.  That's fine, but it means nothing until and unless they do it.  Insanity is doing the same thing and expecting different results.   This is closer to that than a major upgrade to our O-Line.  I would have expected 3 new superior starters at C, RG and RT as compared to who started last year with a solid back up option at LT if Castonzo fails again this year.  THAT would be clear cut improvement.     Of course we all want the O-Line to play better.  I hope that Clark impresses and moves into a starting spot alongside Kelly who also impresses and kicks but.  THAT would be a start.  I also know a lot about Reitz.  He went to my high school and I am a fan.  But he's getting older and until recently was seen as depth, not starting level talent.  Reading about Kelly and all the accolades leaves me asking "based on what?" We'll learn a little during training camp and Pre-Season, but the truth will really only come in live action against Detroit.  It's just as legit to question whether we've improved as it is to say we have in fact already done so.  Let's have some hard evidence before saying "problem solved."
