And that is what ND did thus week. The annoying trap game brought to you by the Book of Mormons is avoided. The old ball coach is fried. LSU can wreck teams on their way to face Bama or be a nice feather in the cap of Florida. The ass whooping KSU put on West Virginia pretty much killed Geno's Heisman chances. I am not sure if the SEC is the best conference out there, but its pretty clear some of those teams are not top ten teams.
The Wee Baby Sheamus.Twitter: @realjoecarfley its a bit more toned down there. A bit.
Was anyone else setting their watches by Purdue choking? Have to give State Penn, I mean Penn State, credit for turning their season around. The Big Ten: Where finishing 3rd in a division gets you in a conference championship game. Who fires the coach first: Auburn or Tennessee? Has a Heisman coronation ever crashed as quickly as Geno Smith. Have to give the West Virginia defense credit though, they are consistent in victory and defeat. I'll freely admit that back in August, if you offer me Notre Dame going to Norman to play Oklahoma unbeaten, I'd sign for it in blood. Offense for ND has clicked better away from South Bend this season.
I'm with you on that, and I'm not arguing that rookie QBs should play right away just because they're getting paid a lot. However, Palmer has sat for a year (a good thing, IMO) and the team is on the rise.
