Now Who’s Top Gun, Air Force?


Ah, you thought I forgot about my beloved Irish yesterday!

I did not!

Alas, the game was not televised and I only managed to catch the online play-by-play of half of the third quarter.

I blame my daughter, who required me to be her chauffeur for most of yesterday. And the never ending virus that reared its head again last night.

But….Hubby was actually at the game in Colorado, so I was there in spirit!

And it was a baaaaaaad week for allllll those teams above us in the BCS rankings.

The biggie this coming week will be Ohio/Michigan – someone has got to lose! I smell a Heisman trophy and it sure as hell ain’t going to Ohio…..

And then….and then….a week later comes ND vs. USC. I hate you, Southern Cal! With a passion reserved only for those who understand the intensity of college football.

In other words – USC? You goin’ down! You never should have won last year anyway – and you know what they say about payback….

And now to repeat what has become the Emergiblog tradition:

Cheer, cheer for Old Notre Dame
Wake up the echoes cheering her name,
Send the volley cheer on high,
Shake down the thunder from the sky,
What though the odds be great or small
Old Notre Dame will win over all,
While her loyal sons are marching
Onward to Victory!

Alas, does anyone have a cure for the PCFSEB? That’s Post-Collegiate Football Season Ending Blues.

‘Cause I can feel it coming on and it’s a bummer.

I sit for hours each Saturday through at least February with my pom poms in my lap, fingering my rally beads and occasionally jumping up and yelling “Go Irish!” to some cartoon that is on where my football game should be.

Quite sad, actually.

But in the meantime,

    Kim, you called the Notre Dame / Army match-up. What a blowout.

    Here in the land of the Buckeye we survived another battle with Michigan. Not being big on college ball, the level of emotion of this rivalry amazes me. As an example, I got a haircut on game day. My barber refused to serve anyone wearing Michigan colors. They had to remove the offensive article of clothing before she’d cut their hair.

    So now, on the Sunday Morning after Rivalry Weekend, I’m wondering. USC won over Cal, and meets the Fighting Irish next week. Should Notre Dame beat USC, could we we be looking at a Buckeye/Fighting Irish bowl game?

    I’d rather see that than an Ohio/Florida match-up. Or for that matter, an Ohio/Michigan rematch.
