07:27 AM ET 10.21 | Maybe Air Force freshman quarterback Nate Romine is in a good spot in not knowing much about his school's football series with Note Dame. Romine, 18, has enough on his mind just trying to get up to speed to pilot the Air Force offense with minimal on-field experience. He doesn't need to dwell on details of horror shows that would discourage most quarterbacks. The Falcons (1-6) and Fighting Irish (5-2) meet for the 30th time Saturday at Falcon Stadium, a series the Irish have dominated. Romine faces the monumental task of making his first collegiate start against Notre Dame. ... "I don't know anything about what has happened before when we played Notre Dame, but I'm sure I'll hear all about it this week," Romine said. "We have to respect everyone we play, but you can't fear them."

You can't be much more back than playing for the National Championship less that 10 months ago young man. The result is immaterial compared to the fact that they went 12-0 and got there...!
