Cool idea for a thread. As a Notre Dame alumnus (1990), I always enjoy talking football.

I saw my first college game in person since 1997 yesterday when I road-tripped to UNC to see us fritter it away in the second half. Great start to the game: we kicked off, they went three-and-out, and we marched down the field for a touchdown. At half we were up 17-9, but we turned the ball over too many times to win. Still, we had that final chance and almost pulled out a win in the last seconds.

Still, at 4-2, we're leaps ahead of last year. With Weis' recruiting classes, it's only going to get better.

Maybe it'll be ND-Oklahoma State for all the marbles in a year or two? Congrats on your good season so far!
