Lou Holtz' final game at Notre Dame ended in defeat against the Trojans and we defeated ND once again this year, a nice farewell present to Charlie Weis. Fitting, isn't it?

Here is what is fitting, Einstein. Notre Dame currently leads the series with USC 42-34-5. You are picking very low hanging fruit in talking about how Lou Holt's last game was a loss to the Trojans..look closer. His overall record dominated USC: he compiled a 9-1-1 record against them. Prior to Lou, there was a time when ND had won 11 straight games and two other games were ties, so the mighty Trojans went home without a loss for 13 straight years. Look it up and weep.

Here's some rooting for you. We won eight in a row, so four years from now ND's 11 in a row will be beaten. Touchy are we that Weis was sent home packing and ND is a has-been with or without him? Please tell me you are happy that blind pig is out.

Don't worry about Notre Dame. You already won for the year. Weis is fired. I am from the Pac-10 region and went to ASU for graduate school. In my opinion, the main focus of USC should be U of A. I went to Notre Dame as an undergraduate. I knew they would not win a lot of games. It'll probably take a few years or longer for them to come back now that a coaching change will be made.

When I was doing medical research out west, the hospital was a caste system. The highest prestige was an MD/PhD from Stanford. Usually, I thought to my self "But their football team sucks." Not this year. They routed USC and dominated ND on the ground. If I were a USC fan, I would focus on Stanford and U of A rather than ND. I know this because I grew up in the Pac-10 region. Right now, Stanford sees it as a school that is far more prestigious and pummeled USC badly for Carroll's worse loss of his tenure. Shouldn't you guys focus on Stanford and U of A instead?

Time to put down the bottle and learn something important. Notre Dame is singularly successful among major programs in its commitments to graduate its student athltetes. It does not bring in recruits to win games and them toss them aside when the seasons are over.

According to figures released this week, ND ranked first among the Football Bowl Subdivision schools in the graduation figures, which were initiated in 2005 by the NCAA. The University's 99 percent graduation rate for all its student-athletes ranked just ahead of the 98 figure for the U.S. Naval Academy. Using the federal formula, Notre Dame graduated a four-year average of 90 percent of its student-athletes, just behind Stanford at 91 percent.

If you want to embarass yourself, check out and report back on the graduation rates for USC and the other programs you listed. Here are the rates for 2008: read 'em and weep.

-Southern California 54%
-LSU 54%
-Kansas 53%
-California 53%
-Ohio State 52%
-Michigan State 51%
-Texas 50%
-Georgia 48%
-Oklahoma 46%

So you are content with high graduation rates as you watch ND lose football games? That's very noble of you.

USC doesn't win as many games now that the NCAA officials require that they actually cross the goal line WITH the football!! Go SEC and Go Gators!!
