Letter: Sportswriter missed good quote

Seems to me that when sportswriter Bill Plaschke was casting about for quotes from Knute Rockne and the Gipper to bolster his prediction that Notre Dame would be the victor in the BCS playoff game, he should have given this quote by Omar Khayyam a little more thought:

“The Moving Finger writes: and, having writ,

Moves on: nor all thy Piety nor Wit

Shall lure it back to cancel half a Line,

Nor all thy Tears wash out a Word of it.”

— Robert F. Brandt
