My counterpart, Mr. Ron Haramia, has done an exceptional job skewering Notre Dame fans and the team itself.
But in this weekâs column, Ron seems to think that if Notre Dame ends up making a BCS game (which is almost assured at this point) or the title game, they would be run off the field.
Not just run off the field.
You would think that Notre Dame would encounter such a throttling that Dana White might buy the game and sell it on Pay-Per-View.
I spent my Saturday watching college football.
Now that all-mighty Alabama has lost, Notre Dameâs path to college footballâs national championship game has become less crowded. Just two teams â Kansas State and Oregon â stand in the way of one of the most storied college programs in history having a shot at the title.

MARSHALL CO. âÂ Many who stand to gain from a high speed bandwidth connection between Plymouth and South Bend visited the Marshall County Council meeting Tuesday.
Representatives from local organizations including Saint Joseph Regional Medical Center, K-Trade, and the Niles Lankford Group joined others representing small business, city and county government in asking the council to consider support of the $2.2 million project. Proposed by the countyâs Technology Squared committee is connecting existing Metronet fiber in St. Joseph County to Marshall County along U.S. 31.
ARGOS â Triton girls basketball head coach Adam Heckaman expected a game of runs at Argos Tuesday.
The two highly-touted teams proved Heckaman right, with his Class A No. 6 squad delivering the decisive spurt in the second half on its way to a 54-47 win over the Class A No. 10 Dragons at Phil Weybright Gymnasium.
After falling behind 29-26 with 2:51 left in the third quarter, the Trojans boosted the tempo and rattled off seven straight points to end the frame, taking the lead for good with Kylie Masonâs triple in transition off a dish from Taylor Hatfield at the 2:10 mark.
BREMEN â Although it is still very early in the high school girls basketball season, Bremen and North Judson were antsy for that initial victory while facing off Tuesday at the Lions Den.
Both played well on this night, but it was the Lady Jays who reached the âWâ column first after winning 70-60 in the non-league game that was much closer than the final score indicates.
