USC has beaten ND 10 out of the last 12 years (I was told today by an ND grad, don't have time to look it up)...granted, ND hasn't exactly been world-beaters in that stretch; but USC would rather beat ND than UCLA. He (ND grad) is scared to death about this game, and I can't for the life of me figure out why. ND's offense ain't great by any stretch, but neither is USC's defense. And I think ND's defense is over-rated (Pitt). So, can an untested frosh QB beat ND? Did a frosh QB beat Bama? Granted, he had some games under his belt, but still, a freshman going against one of the best defenses in the country. Stranger things have happened....but not this week. "No" Touchdown Jesus has followed ND to California. Bama gets the shot we have all been waiting for (if/when they take care of the 'dogs.) ND 21 USC20

OK..Let's think about this for a second.
If USC loses, nobody's surprised, and as soon as the next game kicks off, nobody will remember the kid's "guarantee".
But let's say that USC does pull this off....the kid will become a mythical figure and go into next season as a Heisman favorite (it's all about hype these days, after all).
And I know it's already been said that the media is basically manufacturing false controversy, but let's say that the kid was wildly brash and said, "I guarantee we'll win. I'll be my scholarship on it."
What is it going to hurt? Does anyone think that Notre Dame can be any more motivated than they already are? They have ONE game to win to go to their first national championship game in about 2 decades. If you need bulletin board material to get up for this game then you don't belong.
