Tough game for them to beat USC in LA. It's a good story but they have won some close games against weak teams. That said they've had a few impressive wins against some good teams on the road. I still say Alabama is the best team and will win it all. There are some clueless college football fans out there. Check out some of the comments on the ESPN forums. Stuff like the SEC is weak, FL State is the best team and the ACC is the toughest conference LOL.
Good luck to ND, it's nice to see them back in the mix again.
barkley is out. so it will be a lto easier.
nd is overrated, but what are you going to do.
congratats jints. youi and mb are huge nd fans.
if you log into the draft thrread i wrote a lot about college football yesterday and in the past several sundays.
i dont know if i agree with "overrated"...not after taking Oklahoma apart in Norman and Standford shuting down Oregon in Eugene makes ND's win over Stanford more impressive
btw u know how many offensive td's ND has allowed in 11 games? 8...that's unreal
theri de is legit. and teo is something.
most in hte country who are nto nd fans do nto say notre dame beart stanford. the refs did.
the same thing happened ot save nd at pitt. who had previously lost to an fcs team, i think maaybe yongstown state. pitt went on to lsoe to unconn. they are not very good. took nd 3 overtimes and teh refs help to vanquish pitt.
nd should be made to join a conference. if thy were in one, they would haev lsot some games, even in the acc. that is the reason they stay independent.
if you have watehd the top 10 teams in the country and can view somewhat objectively, you can see nd is good, but no way they are one of the top 2. not close. $ and politics are what run the ncaa. that si why they refuse a playoff.
if i was poled today on the best team in teh country on the field (not wins and losses), which is whtat the polls are supposed to answer, id go 1 lsu, 2 oregon, 3 bama. all pretty close. i dont think there is a team that belongs with those 3 at the moment.
