    20 - 0 at the half. ND is still not looking fully in sync, but its really starting to come along. After last weeks showing it feels good.

    Penn State is killing themselves, they dropped 2 INTs that "Pretty Boy" Quinn threw. Those would have taken away 2 FGs. Then they turned over the ball which gave Notre Dame good field position on a fumble and they also botched the FG attempt by having a bad snap. Game should be a lot closer than it is.

    I cannot argue that, Penn has looked like a team expecting to lose. Still, I feel that the Irish would be in front right now even had Penn come to play. Quinn is not playing like a Heisman Qb this year. Most of his passes deep look like he is aiming them rather then just letting it go.

    Last I heard 41 - 17 isn't a close game.

    Neither is 24 -7 :D

    Is Paterno still out there or did he retire last year? I swear one day they're going to have him propped up on the side lines like El Cid to try to inspire the team.

    I said the game "should" have been a lot closer

    Win streaks have to come to an end sooner or later. 21 games, 2 Rose Bowl victories...I'm not complaining.

    But Notre Dame has that 2 game win streak going, lol

    My Penn State got beat but I knew they would. Too many inexperienced players and the Irish played very well as I knew they would.
