    I guess it was only a matter of time before the Dallas Cowboys of the NCAA finally stumbled their way back into the Big Time.

    Unfortunate for them -- and their insufferable fan base -- that an actual football team will be lining up across from them tonight.

    Finish your snacks early Irish bobos . . .  I think you're gonna lose your appetite fairly quickly in this one.

    u know p-mike i thought ur personality as an over-opinionated loudmouth was limited to the Pats but now I see it just extends everywhere

    so stanford, michigan, mich st, oklahoma and usc aren't real college teams huh? and i guess ND should/could have scheduled some of those IIA programs the SEC schedule to beat 75-0 but they don't do that sort of thing at South Bend

    and insufferabe fans? you must have them confused with the SEC blowhards-particularly Alabama, the Yankees fans of the NCAA

    [/QUOTE]

         I can't understand the hate for ND...a school that, in refusing to lower it's academic standards, has lost many a recruit over the years. Seems to me that ol' Notre Dame should gain favor for that.

    [/QUOTE]

    Read Under the Tarnished Dome it is all about how Notre lowered its standards plenty during the Lou Holtz era in order to regain its status as a football power house.

    If you think it is possible for a team to go 13-0 in the modern NCAA football landscape while following all the NCAA rules to a T and having higher than average admission standards, I have several bridges to sell you...

     [/QUOTE]

         Perhaps...but Lou isn't there anymore...and, if the standards were lowered, they have since been raised again. Perhaps that would account for Notre Dame falling out of relevance for the national title, over the past 20 years.

    It's really just boils down to how many points ND scores.

    I think they can hold Bama to 20 or 21. Nix and Lewis-Moore vs the Bama OL will be interesting. It would really be impressive if they hold Bama below 20. 

    That said, I think ND needs to score 24 to win this game. I'll be watching if the ND OL can spring Riddick out. If so then ND has a good chance.

    Bottomline, we will be treated to a great battle in the trenches

    (12-1) Alabama Crimson Tide v. (12-0) Notre Dame Fighting Irish (+10.5): Though Alabama is heavily favored, the one team to beat them, the Aggies of Texas A&M, have a team somewhat similar to Notre Dame. But A&M's trigger man, Heisman Trophy winner, freshman QB Johnny Menzel, is much more accomplished than Irish QB, freshman Everett Golson. Still,  Golson has gradually improved as the season wore on...and Notre Dame has a better defense than the Aggies. I don't see Alabama as the defensive dynamo they were last season. This should be a tight, taunt, low scoring game. I don't know if Notre Dame can muster enough offense to win, but I like them to cover: PICK: Notre Dame

         Notre Dame's win over Stanford this year impressed me. But, if they do win, I don't see them winning big. 

     

    [/QUOTE]

    notre dame tied stanford (refs didnt count stanfords last td)

    i found that game(for notre dame) quite unimpressive. the stanford coach went more conservartive than his usual very conservagtive tendencies (otherwise i saw them winning by 10+)

    ditto the byu and the pitt games' where the referee-and-divine-intervention saved nd's propped up #1 seeding.

    Maybe I am a pessimest, but I believe every successful college football program is dirty. It is what you have to do to compete in that sport. 

    He is a good Chicago Sun Times about how one of the keys to Notre Dame turning things around under Kelly was him getting the university to back off on admission standards and disciplanary rules for football players:

         Agreed on A&M. It's a damn shame that there's no playoff system. Can you imagine the interest in the bowl games, if there was, say, a 12 team playoff system? The top 4 teams would get byes.
