Quick score update #17Utah @ SJSU tied up at 7-7 in the 3rd, not really that surprising if you follow SJSU.

Well, maybe, but UH lead at the half last year then realized that the ghost of Art Briles was still around and they kicked the ball around the yard and OSU took advantage.

This time, not so. Four Okie Lite turnovers and nearly 300 fewer yards of offense as a result, IIRC.

Anyway, UH wins two of three meetings over a four season span. One in Kevin Kolb's senior year (CUSA champ year of 2006) and split two in Stoolwater. I like it.

Ohio State has a 6-foot-12 QB that cannot consistently throw the ball down the field. That was the difference last night!

It certainly looks like USC is having a down year, they almost lost to a Big 10 team .

Lol Acuda - really look at all the posts - its Monkey See Monkey do- they talk about Notre Dame because the media hypes them. Now ND is 1-1 having not played a ranked team in the same position as 150 other colleges but its all Notre Dame.

Meanwhile Cal a much better school, both academically and in football, is virtually ignored.

This is the real media bias- Notre Dame has the Catholic Church behind it - Cal - well aren't they a bunch of liberals anyway?

Acuda I know you have heard of Cal lol

Default When will the annual Notre Dame media hype end?

ND is now just another of 150 college teams who are 1-1 and having played no ranked opponents. Once again there was a furious media hype to start the season.. and once again another let down. The same with basketball where they started #10 last year and then OBLIVION (unranked).

If two people ran for president and the media only covered one- yes people would know its unfair. But what about college sports, where attention means money and recruits? Shouldn't there be some attempt at parity?

Contrast Notre Dame's coverage with that of Cal - Berkeley.

You might not know this but Cal is #10 now but will be approximately #8 when the new rankings come out. Cal is also a much better academic school than Notre Dame and most credible ratings ( Chronicle of Higher Ed, London Times) have it as the best public school in the nation.

Could it be that the Catholic Church is backing Notre Dame while Cal is considered just a bunch of liberals? Take the politics out of sports!

I don't know but this love fest with ND has been going on for decades. I think it was in the 90s NBC even had a game of ND on every single Saturday they played, ALL OVER THE COUNTRY. I think it was even called "Notre Dame Football Saturday" or something like that.

Well, the joke is on them. So Notre Dame beat Nevada 35-0. Whoop-te-doo-dah! How many bowl games has Nevada been in over the last, say couple decades?

I've been meaning to check their schedule for this season. In a different thread it was stated that out of the 12 game schedule Notre Dame has 8 of them at home.

Huh?
