Georgia or Bama would beat the golden domers handily.
Who knows what would happen with ND/Bama ND/Georgia.
All I know is that they may win and they may lose. ND will not get blown out by anyone. Their defense is too good to let that happen. What is more likely is that its 13-3 or 10-0 or something crazy like that.
However, if you think that ND doesn't have the talent to stay with an SEC you're blind. Name one player on the ND defensive line that wouldn't play significant minutes on any line in the SEC?
Tuitt? KLM? Nix? Shembo? Need I remind you that all of those players were recruited by SEC schools.

POTW 12/23-12/29, 2013
Nope. Just pointing out, that I was around for some of the great years. I'm only 32. Good to see were on our way back. Maybe The Irish & Gators will lock horns here in the coming years. Should be fun.
True...Bama may not even make it. But I'll say this...If Bama doesn't turn the ball over UGA will not beat us and ND damn sure won't. Speaking of LSU, we had 2 TO's, got lit up in the air and still won on the road in Death Valley at night. Texas A&M, 3 TO's and lost on 4th down by throwing a pick in the endzone with 1 minute to go. 5 TO's in those 2 games while creating none and we went 1-1. Fact, if we hang on to the ball....good luck beating us. Hope we get to find out though.
You feel pretty d@mn good about yourself sitting in that trailer, don't you son? You better be careful, if Uncle Dad finds out what you been up to on the interwebs, hes gonna make you go out back & cut a switch & light you up real good.
Of course they wouldn't play, if an SEC team wanted them then an SEC team would have them. ND play's with the SEC's leftovers
We are ND
I concur. I'm glad you realize that our 3rd stringers would fit your starting positions very well.

Nah. We don't take juco's with an IQ level under 75. Try again.
so would Ole Miss and Kentucky
3 time POTW, member since 2006, MLWTI: 4-3
I think you would take Kentucky by a few TDs.
Ole Miss???? If Pitt got to OT, I wouldn't count Ole Miss out. Of course now saying that, maybe I shouldn't write off Kentucky so quickly.
coming from a guys team that has a loss to a team thats #1 with no loss

I didn't say we didn't have a loss. Just saying though, if a highly suspect PI call is needed to beat Pitt in OT at home, I wouldn't count anyone out.
I'm sure we could go through every game and see calls like that. stop acting like that shit only happens in ND games.
a win is a win, amirite?
No doubt. I was just pointing out that you commented about Kentucky and Ole Miss. Should Notre Dame beat both of them? Yes, but with how close some games have been against lesser opponents, I wouldn't count anyone out either, especially an Ole Miss team that is at minimum on par with and probably better than Pitt.
None of this matters though because Notre Dame just needs to slide by a 4-loss USC team with a first time starting QB to get a chance to silence all the doubters against more than likely Alabama/UGA.
This is a year that any team will have doubters though, not just Notre Dame. Alabama did lose. It was the week after a tough game at LSU and against a team we probably still should have beat, but we didn't. IF we do play Notre Dame, we definitely don't want to have a 1st quarter like that against them either or we could easily lose that one as well.
UGA has questions. First, a 33 point loss to anyone raises some eyebrows, IMO. Also, they single handedly almost saved both Joker and Dooley's jobs at Kentucky and Tennessee as well.
None of that matters anymore honestly though, as all any 3 of those teams need to do now is just be better than 3, and in Notre Dame's case 2, more teams one day at a time and they get the last word.
I hope we play you guys. It will be a lot of fun. I am also sure that we will have a bunch of weeks of good flaming leading up to it IF it happens as well, but I am glad that Notre Dame is relevant again for the moment. Football is more fun that way.

ND would beat Ole Miss and Kentucky. I know you know that.
DO you think UGA is that good?
Of course I know they'd beat Kentucky and as long as you guys didn't lay an egg, you'd handle Ole Miss.
UGA can be that good, but Murray is only completing 41% of his passes against ranked opponents so I have my doubts on them being able to beat both Bama and Notre Dame. They do have the talent to get it done though, but when you look at what they've done on the field, you really have to question if they can put it together in a big game.
I hear ya. Most people I talk to say that UGA is not a #3 team...
They are right where they need to be in order to control there fate so...
I hear you man. Except Georgia is actually a top 5 caliber team unlike ND.
btw, I live in GA.
oh here we go...
nothing like sucking every team off just because they are in your conference
nice edit all star
I don't think they are either, but I think everyone would have questions about any of the other teams in their position as well.
Only response I have is that they still have to beat #2 Alabama and #1 Notre Dame. If all that happens, they like anyone who does that deserves what they get.
UGA and ND have the same issue of sliding by some weaker teams, but still winning. The difference is that ND took care of their stronger teams and one of UGA's beat the by 33.
Oregon- lost to the only top 20 team they've played and after Arizona and UCLA beating USC as well, how good does that win look anymore.
K St- same as UGA, but to a team with a losing record at the time.
Florida- has looked awful at times, but does have an impressive list of wins. FSU game will answer questions, IMO.
FSU- could be the best and probably is one of the top 3 teams in the country. Loss to NC St hurts, but probably not as much as WVU dropping from their schedule. WVU has fallen, but they still wouldn't kill their computer rankings as much as a 2nd FCS team. Killing Florida would make me sick if I were a FSU fan knowing what could have been.
good break down.
edit: a great defense helps
