ND wins again and will now play the winner of the SEC Championship Game…Bama or Georgia. Saturday’s win against USC was exactly like every other win this season. Run the ball, play mistake free, and suffocate the opposing team. Bama or Georgia will obviously be a tough match-up for the Irish. We’ll worry about the opponent after Saturday. But ND’s first national championship appearance since 1988 (due to 1993 screwjob) leaves no doubt about one thing: ND Is Back. And one look at their roster and continued continuity (Diacco) with their coaching staff means they’re here to stay.
12-0. Bring the hate.
Another game, another weak offensive performance. But more importantly the Irish notched another win to keep pace with ‘Bama, Florida, Oregon, Oregon State, and the Powercats from the Little Apple.
For those in the heartland that aren’t Baptist goat bangers…the Notre Dame Fighting Irish take on Michigan on Saturday Night at Notre Dame Stadium. On paper, ND looks to have the advantage based on a SEC’esque front seven, a talented pool of running backs, and the ability to finally play mistake free football in year three of Brian Kelly’s tenure in South Bend.
However, like all rivalries, throw any and all preconceived notions out the Windah. Denard Robinson has been dynamite in this series and should makes plays on his own…especially against a young ND secondary. This ND fan is nervous and worried about a let-down after an emotional beatdown of Sparty last weekend in East Lansing.
Win this game and ND is in pretty good shape heading into the bye week. Unfortunately, Miami, BYU, Stanford, and Oklahoma await ND (not to mention a Thanksgiving trip to USC). The arrow is pointed up for an ND program that hasn’t been competitive since 1993. However, like most jaded domers, I’m gonna take a wait and see approach.
Bring it on
Melky Cabrera, All-Star MVP, and egg on the face of Royals GM Dayton Moore was suspended by the Players Association for 50 Games for testing positive for testosterone. Maybe he listened to the commercials on 810 that run 100 times a day and thought “I’m feeling weaker, depressed, not full of energy. I could be one of 13 Million Men who suffer from low testosterone.”
This explains about Melky and his rise from nobody to All-Star. It also allows the Royals to gain back a little credibility for letting Melky walk and keeping Jeff Frenchy Francour and his Reign of Terror on the Win Column. Yet, we received Sanchez in return so you’re not off the hook Royals!
Jonathan Sanchez’ replacement pitched another beauty last night as the Royals shut out the A’s 5-0 on the back of 7 scoreless innings from their starter. Arlo Guthrie is also badass…City of New Orleans anyone? Kudos to GMDM for sending Dirty Sanchez to the Smoggy Rockies and getting an innings eater in Guthrie. What do the Royals do with him at the end of the year? Resign? Probably a 4 or 5 in the rotation. Lord knows we have plenty of those. But do the Royals turn their back on production?
Probably old news but still an amazing stat…Our Chiefs are the only team in the NFL without a >30 Player. Give Pioli some credit…the Chiefs have a talented and deep roster full of youngins. Drinking the Koolaid this preseason…just praying that we can stay healthy.
Nice face of the franchise…so far he’s sucked as a front-office guy and no reason to think that will be changing even with Peyton.
This morning…the NCAA and its infractions committee dealt Penn State a crippling punishment for the JerBear Sandusky scandal and cover-up by Joe Paterno and the PSU Administration.
Sources from the recent college football playoff talks are claiming that Notre Dame could join the Big XII in non-football sports in the very near future with pigskin to follow down the road…
Reports are coming out of Tiger Town that Mizzou fan and team traveler Levi Coolley is one of ten Columbia residents facing federal drug conspiracy charges.
According to trainer Doug O’Neil, “I’ll Have Another” will not be racing in this weekend’s Belmont Stakes on Long Island. This is a huge disappointment for horse racing fans who were hoping to see I’ll Have Another try to become the first triple crown winner since Affirmed in 1978.
Well KCMothershippers, you are now free to return to your regularly scheduled Saturday Lineup of xvideos, stoner shows on Comedy Central, and History Channel Documentaries that you can bring up at the bar on Saturday Night to sound well-rounded!
A top MIzzou Assistant has left the program to take a similar position at…wait for it…Navy. Yes the powerhouse Navy. Did he take a blow to the head? Or does he not agree with Mizzou Mothershippers that Columbia is not the end-all-be-all SEC mecca?
Lets hear it TigerFan…let me guess, he was forced out to hire someone better?
It looks like the shoe is about to drop for Florida State and their move to the Big XII. This would put the Big XII at 11 teams…wonder who would be next? Best guesses are Clemson or Louisville. Was with some Clemson fans this weekend and needless to say, they weren’t the least bit excited about a move to the Big XII. Wonder if Clemson fan realizes how relevant they really are though? Perennial underachiever who got 70 put on them against WVU. That’s what this fan thinks of Clemson.
Good news sports fans…ESPN will be starting another 30 for 30 round of sports documentaries. There were so many good ones in the first go around: The U, The Best that Never Was, Pony Excess, etc. Rumor is that the next round will include Pete Rose, Bo Jackson, Ben Johnson. What were some of your favorites Mothershippers?
