Incredible Saturday for College Football

Oregon & Kansas State both lost---the first time in living memory that both the number one and number two ranked teams in the country lost the same Saturday. Which leaves Notre Dame at number three and unbeaten---the only unbeaten BCS team in the country and a sure Number One tomorrow morning. However, the storied rivalry with USC happens in Pasadena next Saturday, and we'll see if ND's terrific defense can keep Matt Barkley from scoring a tremendous upset. If ND wins, odds-on it will be ND versus the Crimson Tide in the National Championship game.

And in my godforsaken Big Ten, my native Badgers lost AGAIN to Ohio State---my earliest memories in the fifties are the Badgers winning all their games with Alan Ameche, only to succumb to the Buckeyes. Same story sixty years later---with 2 minutes left in the Fourth Quarter, Montee Ball dived over the goal line with his hands holding the ball in front of him for the TD that would have given him the undisputed all-time record for TDs as a FSC school player---and had the ball punched out of his hands by a Buckeye linebacker. Same story with OSU since forever, the Badgers manage to lose in overtime.

Good thing the Packers wax Bengals' or Brown's asses whenever they play them...!! ;-)
