SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Invoking the no-respect incentive, Notre Dame pumped up its national profile yesterday and may have saved its season in the process.The 17th-ranked Fighting Irish used an old menu -- a big running game, the option play and timely defense -- to upset fifth-ranked Southern California, 38-10, before 59,075 at Notre Dame Stadium."This was huge," Irish quarterback Ron Powlus said. "We were playing a Top 5 team and our record isn't where we'd like it to be. But this game is going to help us out."

MIAMI -- Florida State coach Bobby Bowden has been at this bowl business so long and been so good at it, he could probably coach his Seminoles tonight with his eyes closed. Certainly, he didn't have to hear that there were still tickets available for the Orange Bowl to know what was missing from this game against the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame."I can tell we're not playing to be No. 1 or No. 2," Bowden said. "There is no national championship on the line. I can tell the difference in the atmosphere.

Notre Dame settled a year-old score with Stanford in a businesslike manner Saturday night in Stanford, Calif."Revenge alone is not going to do it. You have to carry out the game plan," said fullback Jerome Bettis, who did his part by scoring four touchdowns in No. 7 Notre Dame's 42-26 victory over Stanford (1-3).Last year, Stanford upset Notre Dame, 36-31, knocking the Fighting Irish out of the top spot in the polls."We felt we had a good game plan [Saturday night]," Notre Dame coach Lou Holtz said.

He remembers it was a Tuesday (Jan. 17), and Notre Dame coach Lou Holtz was on the other end of the line asking him to come to Notre Dame. Holtz told him he didn't even have to make a visit. His scholarship was guaranteed.What does a 17-year-old say to the coach of the most famous football program in America?

Let there be a footnote in the record book explaining that in the college football season of 1993 the best team was Florida State but the national champion was truly Notre Dame.There's admittedly a certain amount of ambiguity to such a deduction but since the voting is entirely subjective any scenario can be presented -- and be found either plausible or flawed, depending on your point of view.Florida State was adjudged to be the superior team in the final polls, but then what does that make Notre Dame?

Reading Time: Two Minutes:It was only a venial sin, Notre Dame coach Lou Holtz surveying the long-shot situation against Michigan and deciding to accept a 17-17 tie with the Wolverines Saturday. However, the man who has one of those faces you would love to punch turned it into a mortal sin by wrapping himself in the glory and tradition of N.D. and declaring, "We didn't come to Notre Dame to tie" while stuttering through the lamest excuses imaginable.* If there is any doubt in your mind why attorneys are generally regarded right down there with car salesmen, collection agents, IRS employees, ax murderers and reporters, we refer you to lawyer Larry Lucchino's assessment of the Orioles' advanced ticket-price structure for next year.

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- For the most part, the Florida State players had kept reasonably quiet throughout the week leading to yesterday's game against second-ranked Notre Dame.But when the Seminoles opened their yaps and started trashing the history and lore surrounding the Irish, they opened themselves up to a bit of second-guessing.Especially after losing to Notre Dame, 31-24."They didn't know what Notre Dame was about, and after being here I hope they do," said senior safety Jeff Burris.Said senior defensive tackle Bryant Young: "It was just a lack of respect.

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- His moment of glory reserved, his place among Rockne and the Gipper available for the taking, Rob Leonard stepped onto the Notre Dame Stadium field yesterday afternoon and tried to kick his way into Fighting Irish folklore.Separating him from history was 27 yards and, as it turns out, the rear end of Tennessee defensive back Jeremy Lincoln.Leonard, a second-string walk-on, was not summoned until Tennessee owned a 35-34 lead, until four seconds remained on the scoreboard clock, until team trainers told Notre Dame coach Lou Holtz for the millionth time that starting kicker Craig Hentrich was out with a sprained right knee.
