THE NCAA HAS SOME QUESTIONS FOR OHIO STATE. The NCAA waited until about 19 hours before the Toledo game's kick-off to inform Ohio State that Corey Brown's, Travis Howard's, and Jordan Hall's one game suspension had been turned into two.

So, in other words, Notre Dame isn't a very good team right now.
