    Can ND get back into the BCS picture?

    Do you think a win over Stanford will be enough?

    I would hope not, Baylor is much more deserving and nobody's talking about their BCS Bowl chances.

    What is the magic # where they automatically get in and no other team in the nation does? Is it #8 or #10?

    And your link says any team has to be at least #14 for at large.

    Beating Stanford might get them close to #14, man that would suck. No more than Big Ten teams leap frogging Big 12 teams though.

    Notre Dame must be #8 to be guaranteed a spot in the BCS. Sounds like they could be selected if they are #14, but it would not be guaranteed.

    If Michigan gets to #14 and is selected then it would be a travesty. They have really beaten NO ONE because of their weak schedule. A Notre Dame loss would drop their SOS. So let's root against Notre Dame. And root for Ohio State.
