Notre Dame Is In Town

Notre Dame is holding its pre-game walkthrough today at St. Bernard High School in Playa Del Rey.

  • The annual USC-Notre Dame luncheon in downtown L.A. that was discontinued a few years ago because of lack of interest is being held again today in Torrance.

  1. Just saw how the basketball game ended – Drew Peterson turning it over while running the 3 man weave action. Of course Wisconsin knew what USC was going to do b/c they have eyes. It’s gotten to the point where it’s embarrassing.

  2. SC QB Paul McDonald is a speaker at today’s luncheon and he is one of my all-time favorite Trojans captaining the great 1978 and 1979 teams while passing an average of only 19 times per game, something ‘Celeb’ often surpasses by halftime

    Too bad kickoff is not around 1:00 because I believe the heat has bothered ND in the past with November in South Bend in the 30s while tomorrow in L.A. it will be a high in the 70s but the game will be played in the 50s so no advantage SC

    All the talk is about SC trying to stop the expected ND rush but the Notre Dame quarterback is the wild card here with few expecting him to inflict much damage which always worries me about potential unsung heroes, and the Irish seldom have poor quarterbacking as this kid was a 4-star in high school

  3. Notre Dame doesn’t always bring their band. I remember a couple of times when Notre Dame high school came out for the game.
    USC takes a band back with them. I wonder what the deal is? That school prints money

    1. Doesn’t always?! I don’t recall them ever bringing their band.

      Notre Dame high school from Sherman Oaks has generally come to play for them.

      1. That’s been my observation, but my “doesn’t always” was for the three times I missed the home game as an adult and if anyone older remembers when they did. Still what cheap ass school
        Also USC gets recruiting for the TMB when they bring in high schools. I brought my high school band out for band day in 2004. My band grew the next year and two kids from my school signed up for USC band. (I was a first year teacher and was “non re-elected” by he school they do that in March. They told me if I was needed I’d be brought back, but I had a job by the end of the month.)

      2. Well, I’m sure most of it is due to them being cheap. But some of it might be out of concern for their reputation as good little Catholic kids.

        Band geeks or not, as former TMB members, you & I both know there are a couple of hotels and at least one airline that will no longer accomodate TGMBITHOTH! LMAO

  4. That picture above is from the end of the 1978 National Champion SC team over ND on a Frank Jordan field goal after Joe Montana triggered a 3-touchdown comeback to take the lead only to fall short when SC’s McDonald brought SC back in the last 40-seconds to set up Jordan’s kick

    1. I remember that game vividly. Good old John Robinson decided to take the air out of the ball when SC was kicking the hell out of N.D. and allowed Joe Montana to get momentum and almost pull off a great comeback. Robinson did the same thing the next year against Stanford that resulted in a 21-21 tie. It almost cost SC a NC. That was JR’s stock in trade…play not to lose.

    1. Dementia Joe said that the purchase of a semi auto weapon is sick. Anyone of us who owns one is no better than a mass shooter.

      I wonder when his secret serice agents will be turning in their weapons, freakin’ hypocrite.

  5. One more thing about that classic 1978 SC-ND game was when Keith Jackson introduced the starting Trojan offensive linemen he was amazed at their huge size with most of them being around 250 and one at 225. Little did Keith know what was to come when a 250-pounder today is too small for big-time offensive line play

  6. UT in the Pac12 CCG if 4 things happen:
    today 25th Nov.
    1. Ucla defeats Cal – done Ucla 35 Cal 28
    tomorrow 26th Nov.
    2. OR @ OR St. – OR St. wins 12:30 pm ABC
    3. UT @ CO – UT wins 1:00 pm PACN
    4. WA @ WA St. – WA wins 7:30 pm ESPN
    Many poll watchers claim it’s better if USC faces UT again in the Pac12 CCG rather than OR.

    1. rusoviet comes through again by referring to a third party opinion that “Many poll watchers claim it’s better if USC facts UT again in the Pac12 CCG rather than OR,” with the apparent thinking being that against Utah SC can avenge its lone loss,
      except odds are SC will be playing Oregon for the Pac12 Title although an Oregon St upset would not be much of an upset

  7. USC is going to win because they are better than Notre Dame simple as that. If USC FALLS behind by 14 points they could come back and still win. On the other hand if Notre Dame falls behind by 14 points they cannot come back. Lincoln Riley knows what’s in front of them and he is not gonna let Notre Dame get in their way.

  8. That is a fine opinion Raul and we Trojans hope it comes home to roost
    But this Irish quarterback Drew Pyne is who worries me
    He is an effective enough passer and a good enough runner to inflict some damage
    And as the second option behind the ND usual running attack
    Pyne will have no pressure to win this game by himself
    Which makes me more worried about SC since the 2006 sucla elimination game
