I think it's funny how two weeks ago we shut down Seattle's passing offense (and pretty much everyone else's, but Seattle's was probably the best we've played), and we're a great defense.

We have a bad game, and now our passing offense sucks.

Look, Seattle threw short passes at us just like Denver did. Wanna know the difference between the two games? Tackling! We missed tackles against Denver left and right. I gotta think that this ONE game was an aberration given what we did the first 5 games of the season. We just didn't tackle well.

And maybe a jump to the Big East isn't looking so bad for Notre Dame these days eh?

Or maybe to the Big 10 (eleven... whatever)?

But could a team be in one conference for hoops and another for football?

The fine folks at "Post-Game Heroes" do not agree with you matt.

That's a pretty good site those guys have there. Not sure I completely agree with them, but it's still a good site.
