In response to bredbru's comment:
anyone think barkley would throw all those picks and lose the game?
good team but luckier season.
notere dame byu game, pitt game (hardly powers) saved by the divine (and ref).
stanford game saved by the refs (and the conservaive game the coach for stanford called).
did you know florida beat 4 of the top 12 teams? no other team came close to that.
notre dame legacy aside, the best 2 teams should be in the title game (not the teams with the best record). ohio state next year will have an ok team, play in the weak big 10 and play a p#ss poor out of conf schedule (therefore maybe even ranked #1 because of thier easy road), making a nc even easier. the big east winner will go to a bcs game. horrible.
good season for notre dame. kelley has done a helluva job.
notre dame wins the popularitiy contest.
georgia alabama is going to be a slobber-knocker.
whoever survives will have to bring their "a" game to beat the irish and their "destined, golden and divined season".
i think florida is getting jobbed. no team deserved it more - on the field (even if florida, lsu, bama and georgia are somewhat even. man an 8 team playoff would be football heaven to watch
imagine adding irish, oregon, texas a and m, and south carolina or florida state (to an 8 game playoff) and watching it happen on the field. nice dream. it would be pure honey-flowing heaven.
good day all.
For what it's worth, Barkley has thrown (15) INT's on the year (which I believe ties him for 3rd nationally), including (9) in the last (4) games... so he hasn't exactly been protecting the football and making smart decisions.
