    Thumbs down Notre Dame BCS Bound? Seriously?

    Ok, how in the world did the eleventh/twelfth ranked team who has only one nice win over a good team (41-17 over Penn State) and a bunch of wins against 1-11, 3-9, and 4-8 teams get a bid to play in the Sugar Bowl against LSU? They got hammered by Michigan and USC. There were only a couple of teams with decent records that Notre Dame beat. The rest were pansies. The overrated Fighting Irish do not deserve a BCS bid.

    MONEY. Sorry, but if you had to sell tickets to a bowl game and you could select Notre Dame you would, financially speaking it is a solid selection. They have the biggest nation wide fan base.

    It sure must be nice to not have to worry about some silly conference... Come on, though - Army, Navy, and Air Force? Those were some huge wins.

    Unfortunately that's true. I personally despise Notre Dame, elitist bastages they are. I will never forgive them for being the only team good enough for NBC. It was pure horror watching some of those past teams. Carlyle Holiday, baby.

    That's right!! I forgot about them!!

    I know it's all about money, but strength of schedule is supposed to count for something in the BCS bowls. If I go over to NCAA '07 and put in that schedule, I would guess it would give it, what, a C+?

    ND will lose the game. They are like a Tier 2 BCS team. LSU and Bo Pelini defense will rev it up against them. LSU 31, Notre Dame 7.

    Im glad their in; their my number 2 team. Wins get you into the BCS; quality wins get you in Floridas shoes, so theres a tradeoff.

    Our point is that Notre Dame does not have the resume of a BCS team, and was only selected because most of the media are Notre Dame homers and Notre Dame has good fan support. Just like Iowa. Neither deserve the bowl they are in. Give me a playoff...

    Are you kidding me? This only goes to further show how ND is always overrated.

    Re: Notre Dame BCS Bound? Seriously?

    i am a ND fan and feel they are overrated this year. They won't deserve the bowl they are in. If they Michigan and USC game would have been like last years USC v. ND game then I would have to disagree but with two losses in blowouts they shouldn't be in the Top 15

    I know what your saying and I agree, they are overrated. I disagree on the playoff; every scenerio I've heard doesnt hold water. I would like to see fewer bowls, however.

    Re: Notre Dame BCS Bound? Seriously?

    Since Weis arrived in ND, I have rooted for them. But not this time...no way. It is ridiculous they are playing in a BCS game. Rutgers is more deserving than ND.

    LSU has been on a roll lately and I hope to hell they beat the tar out of the Irish.
