And is this due to their SOS?
Currently Notre Dame is unranked, but the true experts currently have them as
2.5 point home favorites over Michigan and that is with +100, so it is pretty close to being a 3 point with the normal 10% juice
5.5 point home favorites over Stanford
Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken
Stanford lost the #1 draft pick... at the most crucial position on the field...
With that said, I would still put this game at a pick'em since ND has no proven QB and no proven WR's at this point.
Lots of potential, nothing really proven.
They won't beat Michigan.
The experts think otherwise, or at least they have a better than 50/50 chance to do so.
ND is ranked low to start because ND constantly underachieves. The voters are aware of ND's recent history. I do think they'll be a good team whose record doesn't reflect how good they are. I expect them to go 7-5 or 8-4.
I agree with you that our record won't reflect how good we are comment. I think we should be ranked in the 30's. Word just getting out that Lou Wood starting CB is out for the year with ACL injury. Going to be a lot of inexperienced youngsters getting time at CB. Amazing start here ND has only 2 kids on roster that were recruited as CB's.
placing bets on Stanford and Michigan now.
Nope.. Let them go earn their ranking
I assume this is sarcasm coming from a Gator fan...
Scored 4 touchdowns...in a single game. Polk High!
Truth, they have been living on hype for years.
I Believe Auburn and Love IT...4 Life!
You should prepare yourself to live with the consequences of your decisions, whatever they may be.
I agree I just don't see that happening.
They need to earn it first, but on paper that schedule is brutal. And they have QB issues for the 3rd straight year. .
Not at all.. I dont think we should be ranked either, I want our guys to go earn everything they get this year. Including respect
9-3 is doable, that means they likely go 3-2 v. Michigan, at MSU, Stanford, at Oklahoma, and at USC.

im sure their ranking might have something to do with them blowing 4 or 5 games last year. michigan, USF, FSU, and another that i cant remember. if they could control their turnovers they could be ranked higher
FSU Ambassador to the masses
thats a rough schedule
USC and OK are most likely losses. Norman is ridiculously hard to play in
Michigan and MSU will be dogfights.
i only see a couple layups. BC sucks, and Purdue, and wake should be beatable but they like to sneak up on people(see FSU)
BYU, miami, stanford, and Pitt are tough to get a read on.
id say 8-4 with that schedule is respectable
I see them at 8-4 at best and 6-6 at worst.I can see them dropping games to Miami,Navy and Stanford.
^^ this ^^
Under ranked? They're not relevant outside of ESPN.
Feed me to the wolves, and I will return leader of the pack. #FreeDA
You forgot NBC
FSU -->----->> The Unconquered Uprising
Who really watches NBC for sports related programming LOL?

Oh, I get it. That's better.
Real talk, ND will be preseason top ten in 2013 and be legit.
Stanford yes, Miami and Navy no..Think we split UM/MSU again.
this year will be brutal and I have 0 expectations. 2013 will be the first year in a long time my expectations will be high..
