Wishful Irish What IfsSounds like Ivan Maisel of ESPN got a little pissy on his weekly chat. He clearly doesn’t think Notre Dame can pass by a 1-loss Michigan. Check out this brief exchange on his Nov 21st chat, and his smart ass remark:
Rick (Dublin, Ohio): What do you think? If Notre Dame goes into #2 USC and beats them at USC do you think they could get into the title game? I mean thats a huge statement!
Ivan Maisel: I think Notre Dame will play Ohio State if Michigan loses between now and Dec. 2.
Coincidently, Maisel actually has Notre Dame projected to play Michigan in the 2007 Rose Bowl, but retracted that prediction during the chat. Many have learned that insiders at the Rose Bowl have leaked that they don’t want a Michigan vs. Notre Dame rematch in Pasadena.
