And Lee has made everyone he played this year look terrible. The Notre Dame freshman, number 6 I think it was, isn't going to have to cover anyone with near Lee's talent in the NC game.
For what it's worth - one Vegas casino has Alabama as a 9 point favorite over the Irish. Assuming the win the SEC game.
Basketball only schools, football and money ruined the Big East. I'm going to miss BE basketball.
9 points is more respect than I thought ND would get. It's going to be a long 45 days.
