Bama fans will be outside the selection committee room raising H3ll like the protesters/nut jobs at the Kavanaugh hearing

It probably won’t happen but don’t be surprised if the committee jumps the Fighting Irish ahead of the Tigers. They have played a tough schedule and I know they are going to receive some ‘luv’!


i don't see that happening....

according to sagarin SOS rankings ND is 45 while clemson is 34............Also, Clemson has 2 wins over current top 25 teams (cuse @ home, TAMU on road) while ND's only current ranked win is top 5 michigan at home, a very good win, but not sure it's enough to overtake what clemson's done.

sidenote: Clemson, Kentucky, & LSU are the only 3 teams that have more than one current top 25 win........and UK & LSU are 1-loss teams.

Really, tough schedule? I guess I'm missing something.....

That have played a grand total of 1 ranked team (UM)

Have unimpressive victories over:

Ball State 24-16
Vanderbilt 22-17
Pitt 19-14


Don't believe there is any way ND jumps Clemson based on resumes to date.

I've always liked the Colley Matrix method best. Takes all bias away, what's your records against who have you played. It's not perfect, better than most.

http://www.colleyrankings.com/currank.html

1. Clemson
2. Notre Dame
3. LSU
4. Alabama
5. Michigan
6. Georgia
7. Oklahoma
8. Kentucky
9. UCF
10. Florida

Alabama "should be" higher than 4, as it stands they haven't played anyone.

Isn't Colley the metric that awarded UCF the national championship last year?

The ranking tonight doesn't matter..if Bama wins out they will be #1 at the end of the season when it does matter. They have LSU this weekend, Miss St, Auburn who might be ranked if they knock off UGA, and then SEC title game. We have BC left, who will prob be unranked after we beat them, and then potentially unranked UVA in ACCCG.

Besides, I'd rather be number 2/3 then play Bama again with a month of preparation time for Saban. Then again, non of this matters if we don't care of business vs the cards and the rest of our schedule.


hope not, we want to be 2 or 3 by seasons end.

We dont' want to play bama game 1 and then even if we win we are beat up. If bama loses they be #4 or if they win out they're #1. We want to play that big 10 or Notre Dame team first then play bama or whoever in game 2. So i'll be extremely happy with 2
