More and more each season we see how college football is becoming big business with millions of dollars on the line with every game. One loss can mean millions won by heading to a big bowl game or just thousands for one of the lower ties games.
Which makes it even better when you see things that show us that at least the kids still realize they are playing a game that is supposed to be fun; things like Notre Dame's Trick Shot Monday!
The rules are simple. It's just like playing glorified beer pong minus the beer. There is a pin pong ball and a little red cup. The ball has to go in the cup, but it has to be done in a crazy, silly, outlandish sort of way. You can hit with your head, bounce it off the walls (or other people)--whatever it takes, but it has to be unique.
Here is the most important part--when someone makes it you have to celebrate like you won the national championship and the lottery all in the same day.

Both Mark May and Skip Bayless should have known better, but that made some serious errors on TV when they said they watched Notre Dame-Michigan games while growing up. Michigan and Notre Dame didn’t play between 1943 and 1978, which is a problem for May and Bayless because May was born in 1959 and Bayless was born in 1951. Perhaps it would be best not to lie on television.
Don’t be surprised if you have never heard of Notre Dame’s tradition of trick shot Monday, it took me some research to find out that it was actually a tradition. We can all agree that it probably won’t be as longstanding as slapping the “Play Like a Champion” sign, but we can still enjoy it while it lasts.

Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly made some pretty big news yesterday when asked about the cancelling of the series with University of Michigan. Kelly said that the rivalry is really not much of a rivalry, shocking news to me. Instead Kelly called it more of a regional rivalry, even more shocking.

Boy the 2013 expectations escalated quickly! Temple did what they had to do upon finding themselves in the middle of a vicious cockfight - they kept their heads on a swivel.
