Don't rage. Just bet a shit load of money on whoever plays them in the championship game, and when Notre Dame loses (and they will lose) you win.
That isn't the point, Notre Dame doesn't have a National Championship caliber team and they shouldn't be in it. They almost lost to PITT which is my main case, but other cases are there as well that have really shown Notre Dame isn't the best team in the country.
Man.. so much ND hate yet they are the only eligible team without a loss. And considering their defense, I wouldn't want to be an Alabama or Georgia and have to face that. Those teams have been outed as horrid offenses with merely good defenses at best.
Let's not forget that unlike any SEC team, ND has played FBS team after FBS team each week... much harder to do then play one good team, one nobody cupcake, one decent team, one nobody cupcake....
Notre Dame doesn't play anybody hardly. They should have lost to Michigan, which they would have if Hoke decided to run Denard Robinson more instead of having him pass. The only reason they won that game is because of interceptions, hands down.
As a Notre Dame fan, I do have my "doubts" if they can beat Alabama. I think that defense of theirs can be competitive in all seriousness, but I know that the offense leaves something to be desired.
Say what you will about Notre Dame, but I really do think that they could beat Oregon, Georgia or Kansas State. They beat 4 ranked teams, and a 5th next week. They almost lost to Pitt. Ok well K State got stomped by Baylor. Alabama and LSU played each other very tough and either one of them could beat the other IMO. Notre Dame will have to play their best to beat them, but with their defense, they'll be in the game.
Do people really want a LSU vs Albama game yet again? Because that is the only truly viable alternative to ND playing either one of them. K State blew it, Florida blew it, and Oregon blew it. I imagine Alabama fans are glad to be playing Notre Dame, but I really don't think you're going to cruise to a three or four TD margin of victory.
Do you think Oregon or K State was that much better? Who did you least want to play?
I still think Alabama is the dominate college football team. They've proved it week in and week out, and their this past weekend was pretty excusable. K-State looked to be good until this weekend where it all went wrong, but Baylor is a great solid team as well this year and you can't really doubt them.
I think Notre Dame shouldn't be in the National Championship especially after squeaking out games against Pitt, Purdue, Michigan, Stanford, and BYU. I am confident they will lose to USC this week and will not be playing in the National Championship. I'd love to see Alabama/Florida, I don't see Georgia as a really big team either for the National Championship.
But on a completely unrelated topic,
how laughable is it that West Virginia has gone from #5 in the country to nowhere in sight! Losing to Texas Tech, Kansas State, TCU, Oklahoma, and Oklahoma State, that's 6 weeks without a win (including a bye), I live in West Virginia and they're pretty admiring of their Mountaineers but I haven't been hearing much these past weeks (;
