Not Much Fight Left in the Irish

Notre Dame's football team is 2-6. Michigan, USC and Florida State outscored them, 120-14. What will this get the Irish? A $200-billion television deal? A BCS bowl game guarantee?

In fact, maybe the BCS should just crown the Fighting Irish national champions without even having them play in a bowl game. They are, after all, Notre Dame -- the most pampered sports program in history.

Even though that team from South Bend has beaten two pretty good teams, Washington State and Pittsburgh, and because it has a dismal 2-6 record so far and will probably lose to a team they have beaten for 40 years (Navy), I think it is time the Irish join the Ivy League so they can schedule teams such as Yale, Harvard, Colgate, Army, etc.
