lessons from week two

1) If Wake Forest had Riley Skinner, they would have "upset" Nebraska this week. This does not bode well for the Huskers after USC has had to listen to everyone talk about how LSU and Oklahoma are so much better than them.
2) Kansas (yes, Kansas) is the real deal and will shock some teams in the Big 12 (think Nebraska and/or Missouri).
3) As advertised by Steve Spurrier prior to the start of the season, South Carolina is a legitimate contender in the SEC this year.
4) Rutgers is the best team in the Big East and the second best team just might be South Florida.
5) Notre Dame will not go 0-8 to start the season. Try 3-5.

What from week two told you that Notre Dame won't go 0-8? The one offensive TD?

I don't think they will either, but they haven't looked good enough to make people stop thinking that.

South Florida has the most impressive win of any Big East school so far.

upon further review, i agree with 4/5 of my week two lessons. the one that hasn't panned out is Notre Dame which may indeed go 0-8 to start the season after all.

to answer the question, however, the reason i expected Notre Dame to fend off Purdue, Michigan State, and possibly UCLA or Boston College was because i figured they would eventually move to a shotgun offense to "solve" their inability to block. the results showed clearly in the second half of the Purdue game; if they played two halves of football like that, they would be 2-3 instead of 0-5 right now.

of course, they haven't and instead, we get to relish a possible 2-10 season for the Fighting Irish. good times.
