Notre Dame = FRAUD

    Or perhaps as a fourth service academy?

    I think Ohio State as No. 1 is much more ridiculous and downright laughable than Notre Dame at No. 2

    Was thinking the same thing. A LOT of college football teams would absolutely love for 10-3 to be deemed a disappointing year. And considering the fact Notre Dame has had a few good years recently (2000, 2002, last year), but usually failed to follow up with anything close, I suspect the Irish faithful should be happy to "settle" for 10-3 when all is said and done.

    Buck, so do I. That way they'll seal up a berth in the national title game, since we know that Lloyd Carr is Tressell's bitch.

    Too bad though I don't think the Buckeyes will beat Texas next weekend.

    They went to a BCS game last year.
    They have the best QB in the nation.
    Have a v good WR (top 10 in the nation).
    Have a v good safety (top 10 in the nation).

    If they lose today, release the hounds, but at 0-0, i find it a bit of a stretch to drop the F bomb already.

    Will a very good safety make up for the other 10 mediocre starters on defense?

    It's quite the quandry: If the D returns 9 players, but the unit sucked ass last year, is that a good or bad thing?

    And because they make X amount of money on the NBC deal that no one else in college football can touch. It's the arrogance of that program that irks people, not so much their fans -- like my fiancee.

    Unless I missed a memo, Southern Cal is still in the Pac-10. And didn't SC beat ND last year? [/sarcasm]

    The NBC deal makes it even more amazing, the lengths that ABC/ESPN will go to power-fellate ND at every possible opportunity. They go to absolutely Olympian lengths to promote the marquee attraction of another network. :eek:

    If I ran ABC/ESPN, you'd never see or hear a peep about goddamn Notre Dame on my network. As far as I would be concerned, they wouldn't exist. Until I could sign them to MY network, of course. ;)

    Why wouldn't a network air ND games? Say what you will about them--and I have and will continue to do so--they bring ratings. Notre Dame is as close to a National school as there is. People watch the Irish for two reasons: (1) To see them win and (2) to see them get their ass kicked.

    It benefits ABC, ESPN, Fox Sports and CBS to air ND games. Ratings equal advertisers. Advertisers equal money.
