The battle of “NO-NO’s”

a-helmets-350w.jpg

It’s almost that time of the year.  A time that is normally filled with smack-talk and witty banter, however, this year it’s a battle of the NO-NO’s.  As in no wins for two teams going into the Notre Dame-Michigan game.  Zip.  Zlich.  Nada.   This weekend’s game of Notre Dame and Michigan marks a few noteworthy “un-accomplishments” by both schools this year.  Here’s two notes that caught my eye: 

  • Notre Dame and Michigan have never started 0-2 in the same season; and they’ve both been around a while… 
  • This is the first time in 35 match-up’s that one of the teams isn’t ranked in the Top-25.

I believe this just shows the increasing parity among D-I college football, but that’s a good thing.  Just amazing how BOTH schools are having off years during the same year.   Being an Irish fan, it’s hard to admit that an 0-2 start looked possible.  However, starting 0-2 for a 5th ranking Michigan is something totally different. 

Irish. Can’t.Score.

I can’t recall seeing an ND offense starting the season so slooooow!  In two games, the Irish have scored a whopping 13 points.  Somebody call 911!  Clausen is our guy though. He is a freshman and this will take time to develop.  How about 15 sacks in the first two games.  Would somone please HELP on the line?  I thought Clausen looked good in the scramble though against Penn State, and if he wasn’t so mobile he’d gotten sacked even more!  Rumor is this weekend, Weis is going to ‘open the playbook’ and we’ll HOPEFULLY see a more explosive Irish offense.

Two Freshman QB’s

Michigan is starting FR Ryan Mallet, while Henne is out with an injury.  Both teams are starting frosh QB’s, and this takes away the Michigan advantage of Henne at the helm of the Wolverines.

Who will Win?!?

GO IRISH!  NOTRE DAME will win this game and get the first win under their belt!!

GO IRISH!

Real Men of Genius salute ” Mr. Delusional Michigan Fan”

GETTING READY FOR THE SHOWDOWN SATURDAY AGAINST MISHITGAN!! GO IRISH!

Bud Light presents Real Men of Genius

(Reaaaaal Men Of Genius)

Today we salute you, Mr. Delusional Michigan Fan

(Mr. Delusional Michigan Faaaaaan!)

Season after season, year after year, you try to justify your absurdly high preseason ranking  

(clutching at straws!)

Season after season, year after year, you scramble to make futile attempts at damage control when the Wolverines lose to a grossly inferior opponent

(How’d Northwestern score fifty fouuuuuur?)

Inevitably, you’ll bring up the past, and boast of National Championships won 40 years before you were born

(those were the daaaaaays!)

You will point out that you have more wins than any other program as though that is relevant to the current season

(been playing since the 1870s!)

Go on, ignore that home loss to your arch rivals in the regular season finale and continue to believe that you’ll defeat your bowl opponent with striking ease

(we’ll win by thirteeeeeeey!)  

So crack open an ice cold Bud Light, oh Emperor of Excuses, and take comfort knowing that when you don’t finish in the top 25, you’ll be back to number three when the preseason polls come out next year (Mr. Delusional Michigan Fan!)
