Clausen: ‘Jimmy likes the buzz of the big game’

Just hours away from today’s Michigan-Notre Dame game in South Bend, the Hernia P.R. prick was persistent enough to be granted a few minutes to sit down with the Irish’s highly hyped quarterback, Jimmy Clausen. 

Here are some of the interesting nuggets Jimmy was willing to provide:

The Sports Hernia:  So how are you feeling on a day like this with such a big rival coming to town for what many consider to be a pivotal, telling game for your Irish?
Jimmy Clausen:  Jimmy’s excited.  Jimmy can’t believe it’s finally Saturday.

TSH:  Ok.  Does playing a team like Michigan at home for the first time provide an extra rush of adrenaline?
JC:  Jimmy likes the buzz of the big game.  Michigan or no Michigan, Jimmy likes the roar of the home crowd.  Jimmy wishes the game was starting right now.

TSH:  Uh huh.  How do you expect the offensive line to hold up against a more formidable opponent like the Wolverines?
JC:  Jimmy likes his protection.  Jimmy doesn’t like goin’ down.  The key is, Don’t, Touch, Jimmy.

TSH:  Right.  We know it’s still early, but anyone sticking out yet as a favorite go-to target?
JC:  Jimmy’s gettin’ pretty sweet on Duval Kamara.  Jimmy likes a big target, he’s just Jimmy’s type.  Jimmy’s probably goin’ deep today.

TSH:  Sure.  Well now that you’re a sophomore, what can fans expect from you that they didn’t see last year?
JC:  Jimmy’s not so new in town anymore, Jimmy’s adjusted.  Jimmy’s gonna make the leap this season.

TSH:  Mmm hmm.  So how has your relationship with Charlie Weis been?  Has he served as a mentor?
JC:  Jimmy doesn’t like misunderstandings with coach Charlie.  Misunderstandings and Jimmy kinda clash. But Jimmy gets to throw deep in Charlie’s offense, and Jimmy loves goin’ deep.

TSH:  Whatever.  Last question, Jimmy, does anyone get annoyed that you constantly refer to yourself as Jimmy? 
JC:  Jimmy’s the big man on campus, Jimmy likes being Jimmy.  No one would dare try to take the bread out of Jimmy’s mouth.  All eyes are on Jimmy, and everyone loves Jimmy.

    the visiting team brings referees from their own conference… so the refs are Big 10 refs. Notre Dame brings Big East officials who have no reason to be biased in their favor.

    Then the ref’s are biased ass catholics all in awe of being in Touch down Jesus’ presence.

    They suck.

    Can the NBC network stop the rain sound? I feel like it’s raining on my hat in my basement.

    Jimmy’s head likes his hair but Jimmy sure hates balding this early. But hey, Jimmy’s dad knows Sy Sperling, Jimmy’s head gonna be just fine.

    Jimmy can’t believe Michigan’s secondary is this shitty. Jimmy likes to see weaknesses, Jimmy thrives on having the upper hand.

    Jimmy is appalled he’s not allowed to wear his special sneakers. Jimmy feels it’s Jimmy against the world. Jimmy wishes he was wrong.

    Michigan played themselves into a whole, However Jimmy played his ass off, I think they might have a QB there.

    Jimmy thinks UM’s vaunted defensive line is vastly overrated, just like typical Wolverine squads.

    Little Lloyd Jr. (Dick Rod) got out coached and out schemed by Weis!

    I love it how all these Michigan fans are making all these excuses about officiating and the weather. 1.) The Officials were from the Big Ten, so no bias there; and 2.) Both teams played in the same element.

    Just own up to it, the BEST TEAM won on Saturday.
