(Hopefully) good sports essays and observations for good sports by a guy who tries (and can sometimes fail) to be a good sport.

Wake Up The Echoes -- Again

Well, these guys are for real, as they beat their second ranked opponent in two weeks, and they've done it on the road to boot. Rumors out of South Bend are that Touchdown Jesus is now Wave Jesus, as he's been rumored to have been leading the "wave" cheer to the Domers on campus.

Notre Dame 17, Michigan 10.

What does this mean?

First, that Charlie Weis can coach.

Second, that if Lloyd Carr were coaching at Temple, it could well be that he, like Bobby Wallace, would have trailed Wisconsin 51-0 at the half in Madison (as also happened today). Put differently, SI, in its pre-season forecast, commented on the Iowa-Michigan game that it would pit the Big Ten coach regarded as getting the most out of his players (Kirk Ferentz) against the one suggested to get the least (Carr). Which means. . .

Third, Iowa will win the Big Ten (even if Ohio State beats Texas in Columbus today).

Fourth, Notre Dame could well go to a BCS Bowl and do some damage.

Fifth, Notre Dame should have a good recruiting year.

Okay, so it's premature to suggest that they'll win a national title in the next three years, that's for sure. But for the Irish faithful who have waited so long for something good to sustain itself, they're entitled to get giddy.

OUCH!

Another early season loss! The Maize and Blue faithful are used to it, though. Thus has it been for many decades.

A bad day for the Big 3 of the Big 10, though that scarlet and grey speck from below the border made a good game of it.

Thanks, Tigoblue, for the comment. It's a long season, and better for your team to lose early than lose, say, in week 12. The Big Ten did take a few shots, but the teams in that league don't stay down for long.
