Re: 2012-13 College Football Discussion Thread

They schedule those awful teams because they play in the SEC. Didn't Bama have Ohio St recently on their schedule though?

I stopped at 2010 for ND. Western Michigan, Army, and Tulsa. Tulsa isn't actually that bad.

Good for Notre Dame keeping their rivalries like Purdue, PITT, USC, Mich, Mich St etc. But only USC has been worth a shit consistently the past few years.

The fact that they are rivalry games does not make them any more or less impressive. An inferior team is an inferior team.

You think an SEC team probably has the toughest schedule. Yes, SEC division play is rough. But they schedule games that are softer than SPRING GAMES every fucking year.
While this is true, a lot of SEC scheduling revolves around how tough the inter conference games are as Mr. said. I mean, shit! Look at LSU's schedule last year and we played Oregon and WVU out of conference and finished by defeating 5 teams that finished in the top 25, 3 SEC and 2 OOC.

Just look at the rankings to date for this season with 6 SEC teams in the top 25. Look at South Carolina's schedule and that mid season gauntlet they just finished with 3 consecutive SEC games against ranked opponents versus Georgia, @ Florida, and @ LSU all top 8 teams. Any other opponent will not face that type of in conference competition and therefore the SEC reserves the right to schedule OOC pansies, although it doesn't always work that way.

Quote:
Same with the rest of the 'power houses'. Bama has the advantage of playing.. Western Kentucky week 2. FAU week 4. LOL. FAU.
Prior to a three game stretch of MSU, @ LSU, and TAMU. Again, all opponents who are currently ranked. Alabama also DESTROYED common opponent Michigan 41-14, who Notre Dame beat 13-6. I honestly shudder to think what Alabama would do to BYU. It would be akin to the Oregon-Colorado game yesterday.

Quote:
Navy and Purdue would smack FAU all week and three times on Sunday. Western Carolina is their second to last game? Whooooa nelly!! They ACTUALLY HAVE A "PRE SEASON GAME" scheduled second 2 last.
Compared to Notre Dame who has 3 of their last 4 games against opponents with a combined 10 wins to this point. Alabama's next two opponents - both SEC, BTW - have 3 more wins combined.

Re: 2012-13 College Football Discussion Thread

Nah, I'm not giving Notre Dame & their yearly games vs Syracuse, Navy, Purdue & a random 6 win team credit..and I sure wont once they start their new ACC tour..and to call their schedule one of the toughest this year isn't all that fair considering most were home games..I'll give em OU & USC since they're on the road though even but even those 2 are starting to not look so daunting

Re: 2012-13 College Football Discussion Thread

Look - even if you don't agree with me and maybe I did jump the gun a bit on saying they have THEE toughest yearly schedules - but you have to agree that ND's strength of schedule is mostly, every year, always impressive. Whether they go undefeated or 5-6, they always seem to have tough game after tough game.

I feel like if they go undefeated and so does ORE and/or K-ST.... ND should definitely without a fucking doubt get the nod over those two.

Re: 2012-13 College Football Discussion Thread

Why? Because they beat OU? So did KSU..Because of USC & Standford? Oregon can say same..ND's schedule doesn't look THAT much better...If all 3 win out, they all would have 5 wins over ranked teams

Re: 2012-13 College Football Discussion Thread

Well mainly because Texas is going to smack KSU down at the end of the year.

I'd like to see this happen, but Texas is bad.

I wouldn't be surprised if Oklahoma State does it next week.

Re: 2012-13 College Football Discussion Thread

K State will definitely be hurt by not playing a championship game. NEED TWO MORE TEAMS.

And yeah this assumes they make it out of Big12 play undefeated. No guarantees there.
