Default Notre Dame - wait 'til next year

I am happy to say that the Irish are doing better than I expected - there is a good chance that Alabama will not break 60 points, and I sincerely believe that Notre Dame will get at least 10 points.

What is up with the 'analysts' who think Notre Dame should be in this game, simply because they are undefeated? This is the same logic that got BYU a number 1 ranking back in the '70s. Notre Dame should have been dropped from consideration after the Pittsburgh game. The bowl season ended Friday with A&M's demolishing of Oklahoma.

I have family at the game tonight and they are BUMMED
I've been trying to tell them for 2 weeks that this was going to happen.

I'm saying 42-7

It's still a great football experience - I'm sure they are having fun on some level.

I loved the way they cut off Brian Kelly at halftime, when he was about to surrender. Luckily they had a camera on him, ready to cut in case he started dropping f-bombs.

Notre Dame can't be faulted for being in the game. Every season Notre Dame has arguably the toughest schedule in college football.

Michigan State
Michigan
Oklahoma
Stanford
USC

Much better Notre Dame then Kansas State, the most overrated team in college football.

Right again, Scott. The Heisman trumped the BCS this year. An Alabama-Manziel rematch would have been more meaningful, but alas they are in the same division of the same conference with LSU, not to mention Florida, Georgia and South Carolina in the other half. If Northern Illinois hadn't lost to Iowa, the National championship game might well have been the irish vs the Huskies. And even that would have been better than the BBVA Compass Bowl.

To be perfectly honest, I think there are 4 or 5 teams in the SEC who could either beat Notre Dame, or certainly take them to the wire. While I do agree about Notre Dame's schedule, I saw them this year pull out 3 or 4 games at the very end of the game against a weak opponent....

Michigan State: Very mediocre this season
Michigan: Consistently gets the crap beat out of them by the SEC (Alabama, Mississippi State, South Carolina). Another media school.
Oklahoma: Lost their bowl game 41-13.
Stanford: Very good football team
USC: First pre-season #1 in history to lose 5 games in a season, including a bowl loss to a sub .500 ACC team.

According to a couple of sources Alabama had the toughest schedule in the national while Notre Dame ranked 6th.

For the record it was 1984 when BYU was awarded the National Title before any of the New Year's bowl games were even played. I think an Oregon-Alabama game would have been a great match-up.
