3-and-out for the defense on Stanford’s first series = Good.
Fumble on the first offensive play = Bad
What will be ugly?
Big East officials on the field.
Pac-10 officials in the booth.
Robert T. Gilleran and his associates will be working overtime tonight!
irish playing well on this series. big 3rd down
That’s two breaks for the Irish. The fumble recovery on the punt could have been nullified by the officials saying the play was blown dead, as the announcers noted. The TD by Floyd could have been called offensive pass interference, as the announcers noted. You can’t complain about the calls if ND loses this one.
I’m pulling for ND. I have no desire to see anything good happen to Jim Harbaugh, even though he used to play QB for my beloved Chicago Bears.
Interesting decision by Weis to let Gerhart score when the Cardinal were at the 4.
What’d I tell you about Clausen taking sacks on the last drive of the game? Two, plus a fumble on the last drive.
Play of the game, in my view, was Gerhart running OVER ND’s cornerback (#4) on a 2nd-and-5.
I wanted ND to win, to stick it to Harbaugh. It wasn’t to be. You have to tip your hat to the players on both teams. They played hard, and Stanford just came out on top. I look forward to reading Robert T. Gilleran’s up-is-down-and-down-is-up rant about how the whole thing was rigged.
Why don’t you leave, your like a fly that won’t leave and we can’t swat! Quit trying to play both sides of the fan base! You must really be young, my brother in law is 17 and he started liking USC AND New England at the right time. Sounds as if your one of those fare weather fans also, and your winded posts are something that; at times are what some may call intelligent other time’s it’s like your playing the field and cutting ND down when you feel that it’s appropriate to your agenda. Listen, I’m all for College football fans posting what ever their hearts may feel but I will tell you that this is a ND fan site and your posts are like a cockroach that will never quit. So go on with your smart*** posts and feel obligated to do so (your obviously immature) and plz do this with a sense of obligation toward the betterment of something, b/c you haven’t fooled the better part of us, you’ve just shit so many times in our toilet it’s hard for us to make you homeless!!!!
And now you used to be a bears fan too? Let me guess what year that was?? Let me guess you’ve (out of pure coincidence) started liking the Steelers too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (HELP)
Easy, mef811 aka mike ford (What, pray tell, causes you to alternate between usernames? Are they alter egos? Do you use mike ford when you are writing postively and just bring out mef811 when it’s time to put the smack down on haters?). All that whining, ranting, and talking about your toilet issues… Not sure, but it sounds like you might need to go to the bathroom and check your shorts.
I’m not the only one who criticizes the Irish when they do something worth criticizing. If you think only people who love the Irish unconditionally should post here, you will be busy trying to chastise the dozens of people who post here with obvious glee whenever the Irish falter. At least I actually WANT them to do well. I don’t have to prove anything to you.
But, since you asked, I started liking the Chicago Bears in 1980. I was five. I liked Walter Payton. He ran hard, he seemed to hit the defender harder than he got hit, and he was a humble, quiet guy who just worked his tail off for a bad team. By the time they put together a great team that came up a little short in 1984, I was a seasoned, die-hard fan, or at least as much as it’s possible for a 9-year-old to be. I’ve always been a Bear fan, even though they haven’t won anything since 1985 (though they had some gaudy records in the late 80′s, always coming up short against the 49ers in the end).
For the record, I saw a skinny kid make a 16 footer against Georgetown to win it all for the Tar Heels in 1982, when I was seven. I ordered a copy of the Chapel Hill phone book after that, when I found out that a snapshot of the play made the cover. I followed Michael Jordan’s career with avid interest ever since then. He lost a lot of games in his first seven years as a pro, and I rooted for the Bulls harder than any bandwagon Laker fan roots for Kobe.
If you’re going to make up gibberish and throw it at the wall to watch it slide harmlessly down, at least number your paragraphs and align yourself with racial or ethnic groups who have been brutalized in world history, like Robert T. Gilleran does. Better hope he comes back for another season. You aren’t ready to start in his stead quite yet.
No alter-ego here just an honest mistake! You and anyone who pays attention clearly knows that’s not the case! mef811 is the beginning of my email and a few times in my haste I have overlooked the error! Michael Ford is my real name and I never have tried to hide who I am with cutesy little names
No one will ever be better than Jordan. Neither Kobe or Lebron are close.
Hey, great site! Keep it up! I will be difinatley be coming back in the near future =)
