Ty Willingham is out in South Bend. I'm kind of surprised by this one. Notre Dame hasn't been that good the past two years, but I thought they'd at least let Ty finish out his contract. AFAIK, Notre Dame has a history of not firing coaches during their initial coaching contracts. I wonder what would make Willingham so different from all of the Notre Dame coaches that have come before him ...
In an opening week where even the elite teams in college football looked mortal, the SEC had two big surprises in Texas A&M and Georgia defeating their South Carolinian opponents by big scores.
