Knute who? A new Ara for Irish


After Weis’ successful first season, Notre Dame fans have a fresh hero.



Notre Dame’s 9-2 record, berth in the Bowl Championship Series and 10-year high in television rankings completed a love-affair first season between Irish fans and coach Charlie Weis.


In fact, if Weis becomes any more popular, Notre Dame football history books will be rewritten to describe Knute Rockne as “the Charlie Weis of his era.”




Stanford kept the game close in its 38-31 loss to the Irish. I’m not sure whether the Cardinal used the West Coast offense, but in the game’s final minutes, it played the Unsecured Borders defense.


Sure, losing in the final seconds was frustrating, but Stanford’s decision to tear down its stadium afterward seemed a bit melodramatic.




ESPN’s “Outside the Lines” reported Sunday that some major-college football players are living in government subsidized housing. None of the athletes was from Indiana or Illinois. They can almost always be found in the Big Ten’s basement.




Florida State’s 34-7 loss to Florida gave the Seminoles three consecutive losses for the first time in 22 years. It might be time to ask Bobby Bowden to step aside for someone more current and cutting-edge. You know, like Joe Paterno.




The Associated Press reported that “Tennessee beat Kentucky 27-8, extending the second-longest active winning streak in an uninterrupted series between major college opponents to 21 games.” In reporting the feat, the AP set a record for most convoluted sentence written to explain a meaningless record actually held by someone else.


By the way, I just tied the AP record.




No.1 USC was idle on Saturday. But, get this: Reggie Bush’s two-week average in all-purpose yardage is still 256 yards per Saturday.




Iowa State’s chances at a Big 12 title game vanished for the second straight season on a field goal in overtime, this time against Kansas. Don’t worry, Iowa State fans. These things always seem to run in Cyclones.




In No. 2 Texas’ 40-29 win over Texas A&M, quarterback Vince Young was sacked three times, fumbled once and threw an interception. Both turnovers were returned for Reggie Bush Heisman votes.




The original 1935 plaster cast of the Heisman Trophy sculpture will be up for auction this year. For an additional fee, they’ll engrave “Bush” on the back for an up-to-the-minute modern touch.
