Re: 2012-13 College Football Discussion Thread

They're a legitimate contender, but I still wouldn't put money on them to beat whoever comes out of the SEC. I said I would be impressed if they escaped Norman, and I am. Oklahoma played a sloppy 60 minutes, but Notre Dame didn't do them any favors as they were aggressive and ferocious all game defensively. 23 rushes for 23 yards by the Sooners - an indicator that they were absolutely dominated up front.

And let it be known that from this point forward that the Bednarik Award is Teo's to lose.

Halftime and Oregon State could be the next team to be upset. Down 10 to Washington.

You guys act like ND doesn't have one of the tougher schedules in the country...

If it was 1992 or 2002 it would be incredibly tough.

You're crazy, son. Much tougher than Oregon's or KSU. They play BCS teams all year. Sucks that Michigan and MSU fell off. And now USC, too.

Re: 2012-13 College Football Discussion Thread

Michigan is a shell of its former glory. Mich St is down too.

It's a tough schedule, but let's not pretend they played the Wolverines of old or the Hurricanes of old. ND is a good team though, they belong where they are. They're as physical as any team in the nation.

Re: 2012-13 College Football Discussion Thread

All I'm saying, it's as rigorous of a schedule as you will get out of a non-SEC team. That's all. Your points are valid. Let's just not act like they (ND) are my FSU Seminoles housing teams like Duke and Savannah State, until they gear up for a top 10 ranked team once every 3-4 weeks.

Re: 2012-13 College Football Discussion Thread

Oh yeah, I'm not saying they're playing palookas at all. You're right it's not an easy schedule. While Miami and Michigan aren't the powers they once were, it took balls to schedule them since these schedules are made years in advance. At least they once were. I'm not up to speed on how they schedule these days.

I'm giving ND all the credit here. I was totally wrong about them.

I just couldn't believe them after a not so good Michigan played them close. They came into Norman tonight and kicked OU's ass.

edit: BYU game them a good game too. BYU isn't awful but they aren't what I'd consider good.

I'd consider KSU's schedule on equal ground with Notre Dame's at this point. They've played and beaten some common opponents (Oklahoma, Miami), but Kansas State has out and out dominated two other currently ranked opponents in WVU and TTU. Notre Dame's only other win against a currently ranked team is a Stanford team that gets worse by the week it seems.

Regardless of schedule, I'd say KSU is as complete of a team as there is right now and I wouldn't want to play them. Just out and out steamrolling people.

Beavers fall. #2, 7-9 fall. Expect Georgia, FSU, and South Carolina back to the top ten.
