Every great journey in life comes with obstacles.
Those obstacles can come in the form of:
This has been our journey for the past 11 games.
We've ignored the chaos and embraced the journey at hand.
But now it has entered one of the MOST dangerous
areas of any great journey....the PEAK!
We are 4 quarters away from what most of us have
waited for almost two and a half decades for!
The journey my friends, is within grasp and now
we have to ask ourselves...
Can we complete it?
What stands in our way?
THIS COLOSSAL DOUCHEBAG!
And his Southern "Cali" Trojans!
You know at the beginning of the season, every analyst basically
chalked this game and Oklahoma up as losses for the Irish!
But...thanks to Jack Swarbrick...there's a new Sheriff in town
and he's bringing the pride back to the IRISH NATION!
The Trojans are...and I DO NOT want to come off
over confident in this...but these are NOT EVEN CLOSE to
being the "Get my mama a condo!" Trojans of the
Poodle Carroll era!
They are 7-4 and when you look at them...and really dissect
this season you can see why!
(now these are with that poor bastard
Matt Barkley who Kiffen cost MILLIONS
for coming back and not going pro!)
is 27th in the country!
Not sure you can get numbers on them,
THEY'VE NOT BEEN SEEN FOR WEEKS!
Not bad!...but!!! Who have they beat?
Who is 1-9
Who are 6-5
Oh, and the Orange hung 30 on them!
Who is HORRIBLE and just fired their coach
after a 3-9 campaign!
Who is 4-7
But they hung 28 pts on USC!
Who is 5-5
and...the BIG SIGNATURE WIN?...
In a hard fought 24-14 victory!
Their wins are against teams with a combined record
Seven games that kinda make you...feel like...Well..
Now most people at this point would say,
"Every good team they've played they lost to!"
And..that's not exactly true!...They figured out how to lose to
bad teams also!
Yeah...the Stanford we beat...that was "overrated"
until they beat Oregon!
Yeah..the "quack attack" that I told you how
to beat last week...and that's exactly how they got beat!
Now... before you start tugging on UCLA's private
parts...remember..they lost to 3-9 Cal!
Now...on to the embarrassment!
The fighting Rich Rods!
Yeah...they lost to them!
So what do we have in store for the Condoms?
Good ol' fashion, beat you down till you can't respond
This is not another day at the office for Notre Dame..this
This is JUSTIFICATION!
This is showing EVERYONE that we do belong, and
we will prevail, and NOTHING will stop us
until we have proven our journey to be one that,
WE determine the outcome of!
You can talk...and talk...and talk...but we
are a team of DESTINY!
I was at that Pitt game..when Cierre fumbled into the endzone,
I sat there and put my hands in my face...and thought...
"Here we go again!...This is where it all comes apart!"
And then....Then the ROAR of the crowd...as if
Touchdown Jesus himself had pushed that kick right!
At that point...I knew...something was happening here!
I don't wanna talk BAMA...I don't wanna
All I care about is BEATING, and
BEATING BADLY ,the Trojans!
GOD BLESS and GO IRISH!
Have a GREAT THANKSGIVING!
