Notre Dame Fighting Irish 59, Air Force Falcons 33: Rapid Reaction

Offense was the story in South Bend on Saturday, as Tommy Rees the “Game Manager” became Tommy Rees “the Touchdown slinger.”

Notre Dame reeled off 42 first half points thanks in large part to four passing touchdowns from their quarterback in route to a 59-33 shellacking of the Air Force Academy in a game that was not even as close as the already lopsided outcome would suggest.

Rees had trouble missing his targets as he connected on 23 of 32 passes for just under 300 yards and four touchdowns.

#30 USC Trojans: College Football 77 in 77

We are proud to reach a milestone here in the 77s- out first ever guest posting! Please welcome Amy Lamare from Gridiron Goddess. Ms. Lamare and I met at the Nike Football Media Summit in Dallas, and what follows is entirely written by her, so if/when you notice the “us” and “we” in reference to the team- that’s why. No Illini would ever do such a thing. Enjoy:

The USC Trojans, facing another year of sanctions, thanks to their unsuccessful NCAA appeal, won’t be looking to reinvent the wheel this season. That said, expect improvement from last year’s 8-5 squad (5-4 in the Pac-10) thanks to maturation from key players Matt Barkley and Robert Woods.

Offensively, the Trojans have every reason to improve on last year’s decent effort as the players have a full year of Lane Kiffin?s system under their belts. The biggest question comes on the O-Line and true freshman Cyrus Hobbi and Aundrey Walker will likely be tapped to make a big impression early on in their college football careers.

The USC Trojans have a long and illustrious history with the NFL Draft.  A cursory Google search reveals USC at the top or near the top on every list of Most NFL First Round Draft Picks by School.  They battle it out for that #1 position with a cast of usual suspect that includes Ohio State, Texas, Notre Dame, and Miami (FL).  Trojans are anxiously awaiting this week’s NFL draft to see where the players we’ve thrown our Trojan Spirit behind will end up.
