Notre Dame Notre Dame Notre Dame

If Michigan's woes in the early season are a source of much frustration, at least there is the ever-so-slight consolation that Notre Dame has started 0-2 as well.

This Saturday, the two winningest programs in college football history will battle for their first victory of the year.

Adding to the intrigue is the fact that both Michigan and Notre Dame will be starting freshman quarterbacks, the top two recruits in the 2007 class. Charlie Weis named Jimmy Clausen as Notre Dame's starter going into the Penn State game, feeling the Emu gave the Irish the best chance to win, both now and in the future. Michigan's starter will be Ryan Mallett, not by choice, but because starter Chad Henne suffered a leg injury against Oregon.

It will be interesting to see if Weis changes his mind on starters, going with Demetrius Jones after viewing game film on Michigan's pathetic performance against scramblers in the last two contests.

This is a prime opportunity for Michigan to get their first win, since, as poorly as the Wolverines have played, Notre Dame is just bad. Mike Hart is among the confident players wearing Maize-and Blue, as he guaranteed victory against the Irish following the Oregon embarrassment.
