I feel bad for matt, his last game as a trojan. I appreciate everything matt has been to USC during these sanctions. My favorite QB, may nt be the best, but my favorite.
As for Max, the team is his next year, so great to have him start. And He and the team should not give a shit. The coaches should not give a shit. No BCS, and Kiffin is assured about his job for next year. So go out an play football like pop warner. ND has everything to lose.
So I really hope Lane relaxes things this week in practice, let Max feel like he is in a glorified scrimmage, and just play care free, like we did last year when we were winning.
If Max can play relaxed and our OL plays as if they dont give a shit and punch ND in the mouth, we can give ND problems.
We already know we cant out coach ND, but we got the players to score and cause ND problems. If its close in the 4th, we can win it.
Notre Dame close wins:
Stanford 20-13 OT
Pitt 29-26 3OT WHICH THEY SHOULD HAVE LOST, BULLSHIT PI CALL!
ND has only played one offense ranked in the top 50 of FBS......maybe it's the homer in me but I think there will be plenty of opportunities to score. Not sold on ND defense being all world like their numbers suggest.
Yes. 9 tds and 16 fgs.
Not bad at all..
It still counts as a win. 11-0 is 11-0. Ohio St. Won close games the whole season in 2001-2002 and won the national championship.
Hopefully tuerk plays most if the snaps at LT.

Remember, when Barkley got hurt against Ohio State and everyone was saying how good Aaron Corp was going to be? Citing his high school production, it was his 3rd year in the program, and the fact that him being mobile QB was a big step up from our sitting duck that wears #7?
Be careful what you wish for! Anyone that thinks Wittek is ready to light it up against #1 ranked ND is delusional. I expect Kiffin to get McNeal/Redd plenty of touches this weekend. Hopefully, the o-line is able to hold their own against ND's defense so that we have a chance. If they pass protect as poorly as they did against UCLA, we better never fall behind or we're screwed.

That's not going to happen

I'm sorry. One of the top overall defenses, and #1 in scoring defense 11 games into the season and you think the #s lie?
We'll see about that.
Well he has to be ready or he may not make it to next season. In defense Corp couldn't throw a 5 yard out.
I look forward to seeing the results
Sucks for MB#7...Good luck to Wittek, the future is now it looks like. Fight On!!! Beat the Irish !!!!
Feelings get hurt, best not to have any!
I just think the numbers don't tell the whole story. Again, one offense ranked in top 50 of FBS......makes it easier to get said numbers. For the record, I do think NDs defense is good, but not all world. I think the USC offense will get chances to put points on the board. Just have to stay out of our own way, which is easier said than done this season.
Well, we were only a dropped pass away from beating ND last time we didn't have our starting QB...
Fight On! Leave No Doubt.
If the defense comes to play we will have a chance to win point blank. I know the odds are going to be insane im taking Usc might win some extra Christmas money lol.
I wonder if there is any plan to play Kessler or how quick wittek s hook may be
He's shown a lot of promise. We need the O-Line to improve next year.

As do I.
ND's defense will cause some problems, but their offense isn't all that good. Score some and hammer their offense! My faith is in the Trojans to defrock the Domers! Fight On!
Tommy, Rebel, and our newest rescue Harley!
Cool tweet from @HeismanPundit earlier:
@HeismanPundit: Back in '80, ND came to the Coliseum undefeated, with a shot at the national title & USC beat the Irish w/a backup QB named Scott Tinsley.
I saw that game and cheered my a$$ off. Great game and showed the pride of the Trojans. I also believe this team can do the same and WILL! Fight On!
ND's offense isn't very good...like others have said, have him start of wit some safe throws to build confidence...I think this game comes down to how bad SC wants it...ND almost lost to Pitt and BYU...Lee, Woods, and Agoholor are mismatches for the ND secondary...I also like what I saw from Max in the Under Armour All-American game...I think he'll do just fine! I'll be rootin for y'all Sat not just cuz it helps us but because I can't stand ND...I went to college 40 min SE of South Bend...there fans are delusional...please bring them back to reality!
