ND vs. PU

ND 38
PU 21

It was nice to see the Irish score in the 30's. The first half was a score for score kind of thing, but then ND came back in the second half and Purdue let the game get away from them. ND did have a balanced game, about as much running as passing, more running than last week, that's for sure. I wish I could recap more, but I was busy half the game detonating Irish Car Bombs and stuffing my face. We had some great company over, and I got to laugh at cousin Dave (Purdue Alumni and Staff) for doing the one man wave. Next week, Stanford.

Hey Baby, que paso?

One of the German bands played this one at Oktoberfest, and they rocked out! Enjoy.

ND vs. Michigan St.

ND 7
Mich. St. 23

Ouch! I had them losing this game, but still, I wanted them to put up more of a fight. I got warm fuzzies hearing Floyd's name called out so much. I'm telling you, National Champs in two years. They're young and talented and just need time to gel. You'll see. I listened to this game on AM on the way down to Cinci and it was cool that everytime the station I was listening too would fade out, another AM station had the game on crystal clear. Oh, and word about the Irish Nation. I wore my "Shirt" from last year, I don' have the new one yet, and people, other fans, would respond with a "Go, Irish!" and give me a high five or clink my beer mug at Oktoberfest. There were many Irish fans there and it was consoling that they reached to acknowledge another fan. Go Irish indeed.

I may have blogged about this before, but I don't 'member. Glomo and I are heading down to Cincinnati later this afternoon to hang out with my cousin Marcy at Oktoberfest. Unbeknownst to me, Cincinnati hosts the largest Oktoberfest outside of Munich. I'll miss the ND vs Mich. St. game, but I'm hoping I'll be able to get someone to text me the score at the end of every quarter. Go Irish! Go Beer!

ND vs Michigan

ND 35
Michigan 17

Ok, I wanted the Irish to win this one, but I had them losing this game on my schedule. Surprise! Anyway, the quick scores in the first 3 minutes of the game gave them all of the momentum necessary to run over the hapless Wolverines. If it hadn't of been for those quick scores, hmm, a toss up. A win is a win and ND did look better than last week. The Weis replay, on HD, ugly. Michigan St. is up next and that is normally a tricky game regardless of rankings, talent, el Nino, etc. Unfortunately, we'll be on our way to Cincinnati for Oktoberfest so we won't be watching the game. Wait, did I say "unfortunately" and "Oktoberfest" in the same sentence? Quick, someone beer me!

ND vs San Diego St.

ND 21
San Diego St. 13

It was an ugly, worrisome win. ND struggled big time in the first half. Sure, some bright spots, Golden Tate and Armando Allen, and I have hope they'll improve. I'm sticking to my 7-5 prediction for the season.
