Mike Coffey with a nice article on the home winning streak. Certainly a great opportunity to set a new mark that won't be broken for a long time.
Northern Illinois is certainly not the most impressive opponent we will face this year. Ok, they're bad. Real bad. After beating Air Force, the Huskies are 2-6. Double digit losses to the likes of Stephen F. Austin, Cal Poly, and Indiana State don't do much for your self-esteem. Hopefully the Irish will come out inspired to play and make this a blowout.
South Carolina is looking to ruin the Big East's chances of a sweep in the Big East/SEC showdown. They're up eleven over Providence at the time of this writing. Other than that and LSU/Villanova, the Big East slate is pretty empty tonight.
No new Office on NBC tonight. You could stay up and watch the 'Nova game at 9:30, or just catch some Z's. Sorry I can't help you out more than that. Take it easy.
