We are happy to report that the Sugar Bowl was one of several games available on iTunes this year, so we hope all of you Notre Dame fans took advantage of that. Just the thing to view over and over again during church. After LSU's 41-14 win Wednesday night — the Irish's ninth straight bowl defeat — we're beginning to think that ND might not qualify next year. Naw, that's crazy talk. Quarterback Brady Quinn was stupendous, badly missing an open receiver on the first play from scrimmage and going on to complete 15-of-35 passes for a season-low 148 yards. He'll look so swell in Detroit Lions powder blue next year. But shouldn't we instead be praising LSU? QB JaMarcus Russell (at 6-foot-6, 257 pounds, probably too fat to play for the Miami Heat) completed 21 of 34 passes for 332 yards and two touchdowns, and also ran for a TD. Crawfish over Catholics! But don't worry Irish Faithful, help is on the way. (Yow).
