(We've sunk to comparing the hopelessness of the 2007 and 2008 SC games)

In 2007, while we surely sucked, we had recently begun to play better, with a win over UCLA in the Rose Bowl, and a not terrible performance against then undefeated and #2 ranked BC. SC was coming into the game not playing that well for them, having lost 2 weeks prior to Stanford as a 40+ point favorite, and struggling in close games against mediocre Washington (coached by Ty) and Arizona. I actually thought we had a chance in that game, albeit a rather small one.

2008, however, we were coming into the game playing about as poorly as we had at any point in 2007, and SC was a juggernaut, perhaps Carroll's best team. I recall calling my Dad from the SC campus that afternoon telling him this was the first time I believed ND had absolutely no chance to win a game. We did finally get a 1st down on the last play of the 3rd quarter, however.
