    My prediction for ND this year is 8-4 with a (non-BCS) bowl bid

    Purdue (L) - ND stumbles coming out of the gate
    Michigan (W) - regroup to beat Rich Rod in South Bend
    at MSU (L) - at East Lansing, no chance for ND :p
    Stanford (L) - too much Jim Harbaugh
    at BC (W) - hard-fought win for ND snaps a two-game skid
    Pittsburgh (L) - ND not quite up to Pitt's level
    Western Michigan (W) - easy
    at Navy (W) - if nothing else, Kelly will ensure they DO NOT lose to Navy again
    Tulsa (W) - easy
    Utah (W) - easy
    at Army (W) - at Yankee Stadium, should be easy win
    at USC (W) - this year they finally get USC's goat

    i'd flip those first two games. purdue probably won't have bolden for the first game, and i have NO faith in any of their quarterbacks this year. The defense should be average.

    I defer to my Purdue-fan colleague. I was actually wondering what kind of team the Boilermakers are expected to have this year.

    No matter what, I cannot wait. Is it August yet?

    Rules changes for this year:
    http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/news/story?id=5092774

    Summary:
    No more eye black messages (John 3:16)
    No more wedge blocking on kickoffs
    And (in 2011) taunting while running into the endzone results in No Touchdown.

    Good ideas, I have no problems with the new rules (esp. the last one).
