I personally dont think Notre Dame has a shot, and either does Vegas tagging them as a 16 point dog. But there would be nothing else I would like to see more then Notre Dame beating Penn State. I hate Penn State with a passion. Oh well atleast we are 0-1 and have no expectations for a big time bowl. Last year Penn State went into Notre Dame ranked, and got their A$$ handed to them. We have nothing to lose this week. Nothing.
    ND was +17.5 last time I checked.

      You obviously dont' know Penn STate. Penn State isn't a crowd like the Big House. We never get quiet, regardless of which quarter and what score. When you get down to the endzone, that's probably the loudest stadium in the country. Ask Troy Smith and Co. why they lost in 2005 and I bet you one of the reasons was "The Crowd Noise."

        It will be 3 touchdowns by kickoff.

          Well maybe I should call Florida International and ask them how loud it was. Or better yet ill wait until the 08 season and ask Coastal Carolina or Arkansas State. Or Ill just wait until 09 and ask Eastern Michigan. Nah ill just wait until 2010 and ask Youngstown State.

            hahaha best argument I have ever heard against someone's crowd...PSU is arguably the best/most faithful crowd in all of football so to say it will be a hostile environment is an understatement...even if ND finds a way to score on their very first drive, there is no way it "shuts up the crowd" for more than 5 mins during the TV timeout...I think Clausen will have around 100-120 yards, 3-4 INTs and maybe a TD if he stays in long enough i.e. trash time at the end of the game

              PSU is crazy no matter who it is and what the score is. This season for ND will be like Quinn's first season as the starter. I would say this years roster has more talent than that '03 team, but we're going to get mauled by all the good teams on the schedule due to the incredible amount of inexperience.

              If Jimmy is healthy then I support Weis' move 100%, starting the other guys is just a waste of time. Saving him for the cupcake games doesn't help him adjust to the speed and environment of playing the top tier teams.

                  ND isn't gonna have another good season for a couple more years,that defence doesn't have the talent and the oline needs to mature. They minds well get Clausen ready for when all of the fruits of Weis recruiting begin to prosper.

                  That and, Jones and Sharpley looked absolutely horrendous vs GT. It must have felt like GT had 15 players on the field by some of the reads they made in that game.

                          I knew that Jones wouldnt be seeing any time at QB.I dont know if I would have Clausen starting this game but Sharpley does telegraph too much.

                              I think Clausen's older than they all are
