I got into a Twitter war this week. I'm not proud of it, but it happened. It started innocently enough with this simple question:
Why no discussion at all about Notre Dame in the national championship game?
Somehow in the rush to BCS judgment we've been conditioned to think it's a two-animal race -- Wildcats and Ducks. Both have curb appeal, superstars, separate magazine covers, inscrutable coaches. But while you were guzzling the energy drinks known as the blur offense and CKMVP a funny thing happened.
Down the stretch we are being conditioned to believe that both Oregon and Kansas State have better athletes, better wins, better programs than Notre Dame.
