Here Come The Irish!
 


Yeah, the #1 Notre Dame Fighting Irish beat USC, and locked up their spot in the BCS, National Championship Game...So you people are going to have to deal with me being happy about ND going undefeated, and making Rick Reilly look like a bigger asshole then he normally does...

USC may not have been ranked, but this was rivalry week...This was their chance to play spoiler, and even though Notre Dame dominated the game, it wasn't locked up until just under two minutes left on the clock...Although most felt ND had it won when the defense stuffed USC 4 times from the one yard line...Again, the Irish Defense had a huge game, and Manti Te'o added his 7th INT of the season...

ND needed the defense to be big...While the Trojans are having a down year, (I blame their overrated coach, Lane Kiffin) they still have tons of talent, including two of College Football's best WR's...The Defense also needed to play big, because the Irish offense, moved the ball almost at will against USC, they struggled to find the end zone, with the exception of Theo Riddick's 9 yard RD run...Riddick had a total of 146 yards on the ground, and 33 receiving...Everett Golson continued to show his growth at QB...While not putting up huge numbers, and being real flashy, he made no real mistakes, and gave his team the best opportunity to win...

Kicker Kyle Brindza's 5 field goals, including a 52 yarder, kept the Irish ahead on the scoreboard, as they continued the dream season with a 22-13 win...I hate to agree with Lou Holtz, because he annoys the shit out of me, like most people on ESPN, but he may be right...This seems like a "team of destiny."

And now I say this...Bring me whatever SEC team you want...That's what it's going to take to shut up the Irish haters...Beat a SEC team in the big game...So lets do it!

-Like I said, this week was rivalry week...(#2)Alabama destroyed their sorry ass rival Auburn 49-0...

(#3)Georgia destroyed their rival Georgia Tech 42-10...(#4)Florida battled rival (#10)Florida State in what was actually a watchable, and entertaining game...The Gators won 37-26...(#12) South Carolina took on rival (#11) Clemson...Of all these SEC/ACC rivalries this was the one I thought the ACC would take...But after being down at the half, the Gamecocks came back, lead by backup QB Dylan Thompson, who passed for 310 yards and 3 TD's...Clemson QB Tajh Boyd had just been getting a touch Heisman talk, and Saturday night he fell on his face, and the Clemson Offense just couldn't get it together...

(#5)Oregon bounced back from their loss last week to (#8) Stanford, to beat Rival (#15)Oregon State in the "Civil War" 48-24...Friday, in battle for "The Apple Cup" Washington State looked like they were done, but came back scoring 21 unanswered points to beat (#25)Washington in OT 31-28...In Arizona, it seems every time the (#24) Wildcats get something going, they stumble...And it happened again this week, as the ASU Sun Devils beat their rival 41-34 in a high powered, offensive battle...

Also on Friday TCU looking to prove they belong in the Big-12, beat (#16)Texas 20-13...Staying in the Big-12, Saturday (#13) Oklahoma's QB Landry Jones passed for 500 yards and 3 TD's against (#21) Oklahoma State...You would think that might mean the Sooners blew them up...But that wasn't the case, as it took until OT for the Sooners to pull out the 51-48 win...

After moving to the SEC, it seems (#9)Texas A&M has to find a new rivalry game...But they do have something special...Freshman, Heisman hopeful, QB, Johnny Manziel...This kid has been on fire, and after Kansas State's loss last week, and not having a game this week...The door for Manziel to shine even more, swung wide open...Saturday against Missouri, Manziel went out and told Heisman voters, 'it might be time for freshman to take home the trophy' as he passed for 372 and 3 TD's...And rushed for 67 yards and 2 more TD's leading the Aggies to a 59-29 victory...

Then of course, there was the infamous Ohio State vs. (#19) Michigan game...The Buckeyes looking to go undefeated, and play for pride, since they aren't eligible to play for anything else...Let ms just say this...What a sloppy game...Michigan turned it over 4 times...Ohio State 2 times...Then there was the penalties...9 for 74 yards against the Buckeyes...Seriously, it's the last game of the year, you should be past that crap...It often seemed like OSU was shooting themselves in the foot...But when the other team turns it over 4 times, they're helping you as much as your penalties help them...Ohio State managed to pull out a 26-21 win ...Buckeye fans were all so excited for their "Perfect Season"...Perfect, except you get nothing! No Bowl...No Conference championship...No shot at the BCS...Just another buckeye sticker for your helmet...Enjoy that!

And Michigan, 8-4...How the mighty have fallen...Well Big Ten, at least you have Maryland and Rutgers coming to toughen up the conference!

That's it for now...

The Beeze.
