People are so excited about the USC-Notre Dame game this weekend that even travel arrangements are making the news. The fine folks at HotelChatter have taken a look at one of the worst hotels near Touchdown Jesus you could possibly find, the Knight's Inn South Bend, where one guest checked into their room to find that there was hair on the pillows and ropes tied to each corner of the bed. (Well, now we know where Lou Holtz stayed.)
The ESPN Gameday crew are in town for the game this weekend, tagging professional something-something Nick Lachey along for the ride. They, sadly, are staying a little higher up in the district of rent. We have a feeling Lachey might end up sneaking over there, at some point. You know, for the ropes.
