I see it going this way. A little optomism about the D recruits stepping up. These guys are nasty players and a lot of them will be seen tomorrow by the country in the Army All-American Game. This type of player has not emerged from a ND recruiting class since Holtz.
GT (W) New team for both sides @ home
@PSU (L) This could go either way. Edge to PSU because QB has 1 year in.
@UM (L) Could be ugly, AGAIN!
MSU (W) New coach, but they are still MSU
@PUR (W) This will be a fight, might go other way with Painter.
@UCLA (W) Dogfight again
BC (L) Close game again, being home will help
USC (L) Forget about it. The SC D will welcome Claussen to the NCAA
NAVY (W) No reason to think the streak will end
AFA (W) Won't be on schedule for a while, should be a win
DUKE (W) ?
@STAN (W) Claussen back home in Cali, the whole state will be there.
Of course some of the above Loses will become wins and vice-versa. 8-4, invite to the Cotton Bowl or Gator Bowl. Bowl losing streak ends and Claussen is 1-0 in bowl games. Ready for the NC run of '08
