That was the greatest college football game that I have ever witnessed. However, that is not saying much, because that was the first college football game that I have ever witnessed.

At the end of the game, when ND's fans charged the field after they thought that their team had won and the refs added a couple seconds back on to the clock, and USC ended up scoring a touchdown to win the game, that was priceless Poor ND fans.

Man...I thought we were #1 until they put 7 seconds back on the clock on that USC/ND game...anyways the first BCS rankings will be out later today...

Texas v USC in Rose Bowl! I now think Texas would definitely beat USC.

that's a bit absurd. I've myself seen more than one better game. And I'm not even that old. I've heard of some legendary games. The last bama national championship game is the greatest I've ever seen, but I'm biased. That was definately top 10 though, and the day as a whole probably was the best I've ever seen. I didn't get up off my ass the entire day. I did switch to baseball during that game though, which kind of sucked, but had to be done...

I think that after the dust finally settles, people will eventually be more objective and just put this game as what it is - a great fight between two historic rivals.

HUGE ND fan and i must agree with you about the green shirts. i knew we were going to lose when i saw them run onto the field in a sea of green. dumb move, imo. all i have to say is at least it wasn't 41-10 like last year. we made you guys work every second of that game to win. also, you shouldn't have won anyway- reggie bush pushed matt leihardt into the end zone which is illegal oh well. we'll get 'em next year. i hope USC is still undefeated when we meet again in '06 and that we are the ones to shatter their record. there was an article in the NY Times yesterday that said it all, something along the lines of "when notre dame is good, college football is infinitely more interesting...."

GO IRISH!!!

p.s. it was a great game, certainly one of the best games of a storied rivalry, but not the best ever in college football.

Texas might be good enough to actually take USC. Other than them, USC will most likely again be going undefeated.

i heard about that thing with bush from a friend out in ny - the ny papers were the only ones saying that about it . . . all the papers out here say nothing about it and it was pretty much discounted because it's a rule that they never enforce.

definitely a great game - and i was definitely impressed with ND!

ESPN Page 2's Bill Simmons take on it:
[url]http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/page2/blog/index?name=simmons[/url]

Anyway, I have to comment on the USC-Notre Dame game ...

Some of you might find this astounding, because I mention college football about as often as I mention women's golf, but I've actually been watching the USC and ND games this season: Notre Dame because of Charlie Weis, USC because they're so huge in Los Angeles right now and it's the only sports-related subject that anyone cares about. I'm also fascinated by Pete Carroll's ongoing success, as I've written many times -- it's just completely inexplicable to me. When Kiefer Sutherland became the best TV cop of all-time, I wasn't surprised because he was so good in "The Vanishing" (and even "A Time To Kill" and "A Few Good Men"). The seeds had been planted, you know? But this Pete Carroll thing ... I can't even comprehend what's happening here. It's like watching Horatio Sanz leave "SNL" and immediately make five straight $400 million comedies. How can you adequately prepare for something like this?

Anyway, I was excited for the USC-ND game because of the Patriots connection with the coaches: Weis vs. Carroll. When Carroll left New England, he was like Fredo Corleone, the guy you never thought could run his own casino. When Weis left, he was like Clemenza -- good guy, loyal, savvy, valuable, clearly worthy of the chance to run his own family. In fact, you could even imagine Weis saying something like "Leave the gun, take the cannolis." So I was excited for the Fredo-Clemenza matchup, and I thought it would be a better game than people realized, for two reasons -- first, USC has shown a disturbing habit of falling behind in first halves, and second, the Irish should have been undefeated going into the game (I still can't figure out how they lost the MSU game, at home, after such an astounding comeback).

And it really seemed like Notre Dame had the game. They come up with the big drive, Brady Quinn makes some big plays, Weis makes some big calls (loved the draw plays) ... and then Leinart threads the needle on the 4th-and-8 and breaks their backs. (Phenomenal play by him -- wouldn't you take him over 15 NFL starters right now?) And then the ending was especially cruel -- the bizarre helicopter tackle/fumble by Leinart which seemed like a contrived play from a sports movie play, followed by the second effort sneak that was "The Longest Yard"-esque. Awesome game, surreal finish -- one of the games where you realize even as it's happening that you're watching an all-time classic. I can't remember another college game quite like it, actually.

But here's the weird thing: I STILL can't shake the feeling that Pete Carroll sucks as a coach. I know, I know ... he's great in college. It's indisputable. He gives his team a certain level of confidence that other teams just don't have, and they never stop pushing the envelope. Still, watching him stomp around on the sidelines as the game was seemingly slipping away, I was talking on the phone to my father, and Dad was giggling and saying, "Look at Pete, we've seen that deer-in-the-headlights routine before, haven't we?" And we both started laughing. Keep in mind, the guy has won like 28 straight games in college. Then, when Pete was "pretending" to call for the fake spike on the last play -- and the NBC announcers believed him, even though it seemed like his acting coach was Andrew Shue -- I just couldn't handle it. HOW IS THIS GUY A GREAT COLLEGE COACH???? What's happening here? He's the EXACT SAME GUY as he was in New England?

I mean, is it really that easy to coach college football? And if it is, does that make Dave Wannestadt the worst football coach of all-time, since he can't even handle the Big East? I might spend the rest of my week mulling this over. There has to be an answer.

Two more notes on USC:

1. It's impossible to overemphasize how huge Leinart in Los Angeles, and I only know that because I live here. Forget about the fact that he's the most popular athlete of any LA-area team (college or pro); with Shaq gone and so many people souring on Kobe, there isn't anyone else out here who even approaches Leinart. It's incredible. Including every movie star, TV star and singer out here, he still might be one of the top-10 most popular celebs.

Think about it -- he stayed in school to play another season and maintain his monopoly on smoking-hot Hollywood chicks under the age of 28 (a decision everyone out here respects and applauds). He's taking one class -- ballroom dancing -- another decision that everyone loves. He hangs out with Nick Lachey and has his own bodyguard. He's even supposedly involved with the chick from "Laguna Beach," although nobody knows for sure -- you always hear impossibly crazy stories about him like, "I heard Matt Leinart was in a threesome with Jessica Alba and Jessica Biel," and even though you know they're not true, there's just enough there to make you think, "You know what? He probably could pull that off!"

I'm telling you, Matt Leinart is a cross between the 1980's Joe Montana and Vincent Chase out here. Nobody has a better life than him. It's impossible. The only way his career will get derailed is if he's murdered by an insanely jealous Jesse Palmer.

2. With all of that said, Matt Leinart isn't even the most important player on his own team. Reggie Bush is. Of course, nobody in Los Angeles could pick Bush out of a police lineup. These are the days when we especially miss Ralph Wiley -- he would have had fun with this whole thing.

I feel bad for you sneha - You really think Texas has a chance against USC.

For the 3rd year in a row USC is going to dominate and all the naysayers are going to wonder where they went wrong in their analysis

3rd year? Hey remember their first NC was split..and they didnt get the BCS NC..they won the AP. So technically its second. Nope, they're not going to dominate a team that has been dominating everyone...seriously doubt it. USC's defense is highly suspect...their special teams are vunerable. Stack the box against Bush, blitz Leinart...they can be beaten..ND, ASU, Fresno State almost beat them..and they're not half the teams that Texas is. And btw..you do know that ND is going to get destroyed by Ohio State...ND has only beaten one ranked team..

Edit:
Btw...do you know what USC's defense is ranked? (I'll give u a hint..definitely not top ten..not even close).

USC's defense is not suspect. They stopped one of the best offenses in college(UCLA).

And this will be their 3rd NC in a row. You cannot argue that
