Notre Dame embarrassed once again

Notre Dame showed how weak they are against a quality opponent losing decisively against LSU last night. Everyone says Weis is a genius, but I haven't seen him beat anyone he wasn't supposed to beat yet. I think Notre Dame plays a cupcake schedule and if they were in the Big Ten they would be lucky to qualify for a bowl, rather than move into a BCS game.

Even after Notre Dame lost its ninth consecutive bowl game Wednesday night -- yet another one in ugly fashion with a 41-14 loss to No. 4 LSU in the Allstate Sugar Bowl -- there is hope for Fighting Irish fans.

Even without record-setting quarterback Brady Quinn, receiver Jeff Samardzija and many more of its best players next season, Notre Dame will finally end its postseason drought, now the longest in NCAA history.

The Fighting Irish will end the postseason losing streak that dates back to 1994 because next season they'll be playing in some second-tier bowl game in a nondescript place like Shreveport, La., which is where they should have been playing during much of the last two decades.

Against LSU, Notre Dame once again proved it doesn't deserve to play in BCS bowl games, which have become its birthright because of the school's national stature and ability to draw high TV ratings.

And by shutting out the Fighting Irish in the second half and erupting for 577 yards of offense in the game, the Tigers again proved Notre Dame is no longer capable of beating teams like LSU. Or Ohio State, Michigan and Southern California, which also handed the Fighting Irish lopsided losses in the past 12 months.

Notre Dame, and Charlie Weis are football's biggest myth's, anyone else who see's it differently is living in a fantasy world.
