top 5 rivalry games you should care about

Football season is creeping up on us faster then a Florida Gator running from the po-po’s so now is a great time to look at the top 5 rivalry games you should watch out for this season. Before we jump into it let’s set some guidelines for the list.

History Matters – One of the best things about college football is the rich deep tradition that it has. We care more about rivalries that have spawned tradition for and love the animosity that it brings.

Is the rivalry competitive - If it is less of a rivalry and more like John Matrix blowing heads off in Commando then its not a real rivalry. Take for example USC and Notre Dame. These two teams play every year but it has become such a lopsided rivalry we could care less. (okay, we always like seeing ND get worked but you know what i mean.)

Notre Dame to play important games this season…



I came across this list from NBC Sports today that lists the top 20 “most important” games for the 2009 CFB season.  They found a way to include TWO Notre Dame games.  Can someone remind NBC that ND has not played a meaningful game since 2005??  Check back today for the EmptyBackfield list for the top games/rivalries that will have an impact on the 2009 season.

An ode to the not so Fightin’ Irish…

I love College Football!  Nothing beats a fall Saturday filled with grilled meats, iced drinks, scantily clad co-eds and fascinating football games spread over 12 hours.  I love watching two powerhouse programs go at it for 60 minutes in front of 100,000 screaming fans.  Besides my hatred for the Maize and Blue pansies from Ann Arbor, there really is only one thing I find confusing and completely wrong with college football…wait for it…the obsession this country has for the Notre Lame Fightin Irish!
