    It's not. I always get a kick out of people quoting a loss is the 1920s to a school as a possible "factor" in a game nearly a century later.

    It's not relevant at all. We'd not beaten Texas, if I remember, nor Missouri. I've said all along that I believed that this game could be a close, hard-fought game. If it's a blowout, then I believe ND would be on the receiving end, but I don't look for it. Of the SEC teams I thought might struggle, LSU and UF were two. UF's offense struggled badly at time, despite their obvious talent, and LSU has, well, a "head" of clay. TBF, I'm beginning to wonder if UF has a similar problem. Not only was FL not prepared, there were some spectacular bad decisions made last night by the UF staff. It's a good thing both of those HCs can really, really recruit. Also, because of the BSC system - and the playoffs will just exacerbate it - playing in a bowl now has for the kids the feeling of having just missed the playoffs, and these are young, emotional guys. It used to be that, if a team had a really good bowl win - and the right guys above lost - it had a chance of climbing high in the ranking, maybe as far as #1. That'll never happen again and one of the effects will be bowl results all over the map. So, bottom line, I'm concerned about the game because I think that ND is a fundamentally sound, well-coached team, with several outstanding players and motivated. I'm not concerned about the game any more or less because of LSU or UF's screwups, or how the overall strength of the SEC is perceived...

    Re: Worried

    You know, every time we play I fear that we'll lose. I mean, we lost to Georgia Pre-Flight the only time we played them. If you can't beat those guys how can you beat the great Notre Dame?

    Btw Earle - although we had a losing record against Mizzou, we did beat them once before in 1978. We are now 2-2 and have the edge. We had, however, never beaten Texas.

    As others have said, the conference doesn't dictate how we'll do Monday night. I think CNS will have our players focused and ready. We have some good leadership and I think (just guessing; wish I had inside info) they've prepared well leading up to the game.

    Re: Worried

    I guess we should worry since the SEC Champion was shut-out in the BCS title game last year too.

    When I heard this on ESPN last night, I was a bit surprised. Who thought it would be a good idea to put over 80 college boys in a hotel with a world famous night club?

    Re: Worried

    watching florida last night reminded me of us against utah a few years back.

    i have few concerns we come out flat against ND. the chance to win 3/4 is a great motivator. also, i don't see our players getting overwhelmed by the moment. if we lose, we'll lose because we get beat, not because our heads aren't in the game or that we underestimate our opponent.
