College Football Craziness

Last night both #1 Oregon and #2 Kansas St. were upset and served their first respective losses on the year.  Earlier in the day, Notre Dame took care of its business by soundly defeating Wake Forrest during Senior Day, so once the dust settled on the day, the Irish sit atop the rankings as the #1 team in the nation.

Who would have thought it?  A team not even ranked by AP pre-season now the best team in the nation...

Notre Dame is not perfect.  They've shown when they take penalties and/or turn the ball over, that they can absolutely be beaten.  If they are sloppy, they can go down.

But when they put it all together, they absolutely are the best team in the nation.  Their defense is a monster, and their offense effective.  

The Irish have their work cut out for them.  Their next game, at USC, will be a tough one.  The Trojans have underachieved this year, and if they were to knock off the #1 Fighting Irish, they'd be able to salvage the season.  This will be USC's biggest game of the year, and I would expect that they'll play like it.

But in the meantime, after a crazy Saturday, the Irish stand atop the rankings.  Incredible.
