Opponent Watch: Steel City Edition

Who To Watch

Pittsburgh at Georgia Tech (Sat 7:00pm ET ESPNU)

Stanford & BYU are off this week, so by default you should watch ND’s next opponent once ND-Navy concludes. The Panthers haven’t exactly impressed this season, but next week’s road game should test the mettle of our team and fanbase. One can also hope that a meteor also hits East Lansing Saturday afternoon and leaves no survivors.

    Not really on topic here, but the New York Times has a site that shows the paper printed 100 years ago today. timesmachine.nytimes.com There were a couple of articles talking tomorrow’s game. Sports are on page 12 today (Friday).

    Notre Dame apparently was not as underrated as popular legend has it. Anyway, I think it’s worth checking out. YMMV
