NCAA GAME OF THE YEAR GOES SATURDAY - INVEST!
Notre Dame -5.5 @ USC
Many see this as a game where the Irish have a noose around their neck, and now Coach Kelly has exactly what we asked for, a #1 ranking. I see it differently. Notre Dame wants to prove they belong at the top of the heap and I thibnk they prove it. Are they the best team in the country? I do not think so, but they are better than USC that has lost all their big games this year.
I have 2 reasons why THE IRSH WIN AND COVER
1. Lane Kiffen - He is an over rated coach. Last week he got his ass coached off by Jim Mora Jr. His team was dominated and beat up on the scoreboard and physically were pushed around. He cannot coach a big game and makes horrible coaching decisions. Deer in the headlights. His Daddy Monte Kiffen's vaunted defense and cover 2 scheme gives up big plays and big points against good teams.
2. Frosh QB starting first game ever. Against this front 5 of Notre Dame? Forget about it. They can render an average QB useless. Not only that why do you think Matt Barkley is not playing? Because UCLA's average defense confused and beat up the USC fronm 6 last week causing Barkley to knocked out of the game. Expect numerous looks and schemes to confuse the talented but inexpereinced frosh QB here. USC has weapons no doubt at WR that are NFL quality, but getting the ball to them will be limited.
Notre Dame 28 USC 14 - Lay the Wood.
