Not impressive at all with their should have been loss last week they shouldn't even be considered for the MNCG

That's ridiculous. It is all about finding a way to win in college football style points are so overrated. Ask some Bama fans.

If KState and Oregon win out there should be no way for ND to pass either or even be in the talk.

Here's to the hope that in all that "Jockeying" Notre Dame falls off the high horse

Wake Forest won't do it, so it's up to Lane Violation Kiffin to do it. The Trojans have a good shot at beating the Irish unless Barkley spends the entire game throwing the ball to white jerseys.

If Herbstreit has his way it'll be Bama vs ND.

Funny. I admittedly turn down the commentators a lot, but when I did turn up herbie and Brent , I was surprised at how wonderful they made a 21-6 win over a miserable 2-7 team sound. 
And why the heck was that a gameday prime time selection? Really?! BC?!

It's all about the SpiN.

Then to top it off they brought the always unbiased Golic in to call the game.

More like third wheel.  Style points do matter when more than 2 teams are undefeated.  If Oregon or K-State lose, I'd have no issue with ND in the title game if they went undefeated.

Class of 2010.

Just say no, to Notre Dame.

Funny all this talk about how ugly ND wins games...are we forgetting our title year in 2002 already???

What if there was a 3rd undefeated team in 2002?

Class of 2010.

Sagarin has his computer ranking for this week released alresady.   The Irish have jumped into the #1 spot.
It'll be interesting to see where the other computers suffle things following Bama's loss last night.

Quit the Bitching about Notre Dame. If we played their schedule and were in the same boat as them our fans would all be screaming that we should be playing for the National title game. So they struggled in a few games..EVERYONE DOES! They BLEW OUT Oklahoma in Norman and beat a good Stanford team. They don't look pretty at all times but this is football not a beauty contest. They play tough hard nosed football and only give up about 1 score a game..they have a freshman QB with hardly any elite NFL prospects on their squad besides Manti and Eifert. 
Im not a fan of Notre Dame but they deserve to be up there and all the haterade that most of the Buckeyes spew is ridiculous. 

BUCKEYES BABY!

After watching bama go down, why the hell not Ohio st. being the best team in the country. After all our offense is getting better and the defense is much better now days. We can certainly hang with the top 5 on a neutral site.

Life's daily struggle is choosing between saying F--ck-it, or soldiering on with your responsibilities.

What makes u think that? If we beat a top 10-15 team this year I might agree but we haven't..so there's no real evidence that we can. All the fans forget struggling with UAB, Indiana, Purdue, Cal...

BUCKEYES BABY!

U$C will beat N. Lame, no sense getting worked up now. K. St. deserves #1 ranking. It's Oregon's year though.

It's Oregons year every year and they seem to blow it some how some way.

BUCKEYES BABY!

I agree with BuckeyeJason. Notre Dame desreves credit. I don't understand all the ND hate. We rarely play them, and when we do, we win. I'd just be happy if no SEC team wins it all. I'd like to see a Kansas State-ND title game. I honestly dont get all the hate on here. Be happy a tradition rich program is climbing back on top. I've said it before, College football is better when the traditional powers are good. When Texas, Michigan, Nebraska Notre Dame, Miami, and FSU suck, it sucks and the SEC owns everything. We need these teams to be good consistantly if we ever want to see SEC recruiting/ natty's taper off.  I've always said I want Michigan to be good, it's better when we beat them that way. 

Dustin Fox was our leading tackler as a corner.... because his guy always caught the ball.

I'll come clean. I was a Notre Dame fan for the four years that Kris Haines was there. After that, picking at Notre Dame and it's fan base is considered one of the simple pleasures of life. If they can win out, it doesn't matter to me one way or the other if they play for the NC.
