More USC/ND buildup

Over at Brendan Loy/Irish Trojan (a USC loyalist, in the end), there's a cool gallery of the GameDay set and some pregame festivities involving bad booze.  He's also got the latest pep rally rumors swirling around South Bend (Bon Jovi?  Bruce Springsteen?  The Pope?).

Notre Dame's traditional pregame pep rally at its basketball arena has been moved to the football stadium to accomodate the crowd (weather permitting) and ESPNNews will televise it live.

On the internet, we have a friendly exchange between USC blogger BoiFromTroy and ND blogger BlueGraySky.  Additionally, Brendan Loy's got a bet going on between himself and ND blogger The Backer (named after Notre Dame's Linebacker Lounge, an institution of sorts) to display the winners' colors on their blog.  A similar bet is also being made between BFT and BGS, but to display a picture of the winners' choice after the game.

I also watched the awful ESPN program Cold Pizza this morning.  The setting was pretty cool, with the fog lifting to reveal the Touchdown Jesus mural on the bookstore/library, and Woody Paige and Skip Bayless are really buying into Notre Dame and coach Weis.  They're both in love with Brady Quinn and debated whether he was better than Matt Leinart.  I thought it was pretty cool to trot out former ND quarterback Tony Rice, although most of the assembled students had little to no idea who he was.

Not a bad week, and we still have tomorrow with GameDay and the game itself.

So much hype and attention for a game that will be over by halftime.

LSU and Fla is getting zero pub.
