The Domers Are in a Bad Mood...With Good Reason

Our football team has been so bad for so long that I haven't paid much mind to the folks who root for that team from South Bend. Until now.

Our possible haul of recruits on the gridiron has our Irish friends fuming. Top that off with this little tidbit I found in ESPN's preview of their bowl game against LSU:

Notre Dame beat one ranked opponent this season (Penn State) and hasn't won a bowl game since beating Texas A&M 24-21 in the 1994 Cotton Bowl. The Irish have lost eight bowl games since then, including a 34-20 loss to Ohio State in last season's Fiesta Bowl.

Yikes! That's a serious drought. And it has the potential to get longer. As Illini fans well know, the New Orleans Superdome is not the easiest place to try and beat LSU on New Year's Day.
