Something positive about Stewart Mandel!!

Yes, the MWB's favorite Erin impersonator has caught our watchful eye once again, but not for the usual reasons: I actually support something he/she/it has said! From his most recent ... um ... "blog entry," Stew-pot (happy-go-jacky like a donkey eatin' a waffle!!!) has apparently reversed course in his feelings about Notre Dame. Yep, he is responsible for this nugget, from his "Five Things We Learned This Weekend" entry:

1) That Notre Dame is headed to the Sugar Bowl. As flawed as that team is, you
can pretty much script the rest of its season. The Irish are going to beat their
next seven opponents fairly easily. And they’re going to get crushed by USC.
That puts them at 10-2; Sugar gets first choice of at-large teams this year. The
only remaining mystery is how much they’ll lose the bowl game by.

Bravo, good sir. I take back most several of the bad things I may or may not have said about you. If anyone on this blog had any reason to dislike Michigan State before, you now have another huge entry in the ledger: their piss-poor performance on Saturday, an epic collapse that probably couldn't have been accomplished by anyone but the Spartans, has virtually assured Notre Dame of a spot in a BCS bowl game, which will thereby lead to excruciating amounts of hype before the game and even more maddening justifications and excuses for their inevitable blowout loss from the CFB punditry at large after the game. Damn you, Michigan State. DDAAAAAAAMAMMMMMNN YYOOOOOOOOOOOOUUUUUUU!!!!!

I am not an "ESPN Insider," So I could not read the following article in its entirety. But, I know loyal readers like myself and perhaps a few of the contributors will enjoy simply the title. Enjoy!

So many jokes, my head is spinning.

Although calling Michigan's D "most improved" implies that the talent hasn't been there. The problem was Jim Hermann, and everybody knows it. No way the players on that defense were as slow as they looked for most of last year -- they were just put in bizarre packages that forced them to think too much instead of reading and reacting based on instinct and ath-eh-leticism.

But replacing an incompetent coordinator is an excellent way to improve your unit.

That, or manscaping.
