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.

    • Where were you last season?
    • Im not really sure what I personally categorize a slow start. I think it depends on the game. A 5 minute, 10+ play drive that ends in a missed FG vs Denver isnt as concerning as a 3 and out vs New Orleans. Putting up yards and keeping up Time of Possession early are typically signs of success later in the game.     That being said, our lack of opening drive points over the last few seasons was more concerning than I originally thought. But looking at all the results after that story I posted, we put up points in our opening drive in half of our games for the rest of the year. Hopefully that is the beginning of the end for all the slow start talk.  
    • Remember Irsay and Grigsons initial conversation while interviewing Pagano?  That players would run through a wall for him.  We believe That is the main basis on which they hired him and Irsay still obviously values this skill set.  It was never said he was or was going to be Nicolaj Tesla (sp).   Skip to what Ballard said after meeting with Pagano.  He actually said Pagano was smart.  Did anybody else catch that?  He didn't have to use that word but he did.  His reputation is as a straight shooter, so maybe there is more to our coach than meets the eye.  Or his country manners are so that he is overly polite. Main thing is that he will be our coach and the 2 of them are on the same page and we have a great defensive and RB draft class ahead.  I'm excited.
    • Pagano will never win a Super Bowl in this league. He's just not built for that stuff.
    • Mmmm. This would not be my definition. The score at the end of the first quarter would be more realistic. But all pretty academic really, it's the score at the end of the forth quarter that matters!
