It's the highest-rated television preseason game in college football," Martin said. "Those are the two winningest programs in college football history. It's the game that all of our fans want and all of the Notre Dame fans want. It's hard to drop that series. They don't want to drop it, I don't want to drop it; I want to simply fine-tune it a little bit. We've been talking about taking off an odd number of years so we can accomplish that (schedule maneuvering), but then that doesn't do what they want,"

I hate to say it, but Michigan has a pretty easy path to the title game. I hope they blow it, but its theirs for the taking.

I believe it is Jim Harbaugh who is quoted today as saying this USC could be the best team, EVER.

Furls wrote:Good points Fudu and it points to the real problem facing college football now. The new paradigm is to schedule light and cash in on big bowls at the end. With current BCS weighting, strength of schedule does not account for enough to force teams to duke it out to EARN a major bowl birth. It is a shame, but as long as writers voices are the primary weight in the BCS then it will remain the winning formula.Should Ohio State, USC, and West Va all end up undefeated, there is no doubt in my mind that West Va will be the odd team out, and frankly, they deserve it. They know what the Big East is and how bad it is and they have chosen to play the following non Conference opponents:East CarolinaMississippi StateWestern Michigan MarshallMarylandUntil the media and the system penalizes these schedules, teams will continue to schedule them. Luckily, I think West Va will find a way to lose a game this year.
