2012 NCAA Football thread

how you can correlate the niners "hit or miss" offense to the bad fighting irish offense is beyond me.

good luck next week because your team is really going to need it.

They're the #1 team in the nation going into the final week, but your eye test is supposed to be more respected? lol

Didn't Notre Dame have one of the hardest schedules in the nation?!?!

Another hateful troll. We still have to beat USC in LA, doe. With or without Barkley, it's gonna be tough....

ND always has a hard schedule because they don't schedule FBS teams like most top football programs.
As Justin Smith would say. Stats are for losers.

You guys overlook Notre Dame's defense. I'd love to see them play Alabama in the National Championship game. Notre Dame's front 7 is no joke and watching them go up against Alabama's line and rushing attack would be quite the battle.

This is too easy...


Before the season began-

http://www.cbssports.com/collegefootball/blog/bruce-feldman/19184201/top-10-list-toughest-schedules-of-2012

1. Notre Dame: Wait, where are the cupcakes? Notre Dame is one of the few programs that doesn't play any FCS programs. The closest things to "cupcake games" are the opener against Navy in Ireland (the Midshipmen have won 24 games the past three seasons); Purdue (a Big Ten team which won seven games in 2011); at BC (who did beat both NC State and Miami last year) or against Wake Forest (which has beaten FSU four of the past six times they've met.) More impressively, the Irish face five teams that have a good shot to be in the top 15: at Michigan State, Michigan, Stanford, at Oklahoma and then the Irish finish at arch-rival USC. Perhaps the best proof of how hefty this route is for the Irish, consider that Miami--after BYU (a team that may win 10 games this fall)--could prove to be the seventh toughest game on the schedule. Points: 42

Re-ranked in October (Down to #4)

I hope so badly they win it all.

Should have could have would have....did not. Even if Taylor scores, the game goes to another OT. So...Stanford "should have" beat us is a statement to discuss with Stanford fans. Another OT does not mean Stanford wins. We won that game, the final play was ruled dead before Taylor crossed over. Game over, end of story.

Purdue, Michigan St and Michigan are all rivalries and always tough games which both teams want to win so badly. Miami was averaging 35 PPG when they came to Chicago and we held them to 3. And teams like Michigan and Michigan State, much like the fans, thought they themselves were much better teams when we played them at that point in the season.

But by all means, please keep sleeping on us just like everyone else is. We love it, proving the doubters wrong is fun. I'm sure all the excuses will come back out if we go to and win the NC...somehow someway the haters will find ways to hate.

We are the Cinderella story. This season has been a magical one and each and every week we find ways to win football games, it's just been unbelievable.


Oh and hola IWASTHEREFORTHEMAGICALSEASON.

Actually the run game is great, 200 YPG. It's the passing game that is still developing, but getting better each and every week but still far from where we would like to be...we have an athletic QB who has proven he can make plays with his legs and his arm. EG is very gifted but developing, he has flashed but is still growing.
That bowl ban for Ohio State is prettyyyy bad right now. They'd prob be #2 as the only other undefeated.

Still can win the AP natl championship doe lol.

This is what pisses me off, we dont schedule cupcake games, but when Alabama does and beats their assess, they are crowned as best in nation. Before season started that was a tough schedule, Michigan, MSU, USC were all suposed to be good-great teams. Oklahoma was and is a good team,

They beat each team, the only questionable game was Stanford in OT, whether it was or wasn't a TD on 4th down. You have to give ND credit, they did what they had to do, they beat everyone so far, now my team(ND) needs to beat USC, and we are in the National Championship Game.

Notre Dame is the only team with 4 victories over ranked opponents. You're overrating everyone elses schedule. Oregon, Bama and K State have their fair share of cupcakes and average opponents as well. Pac 10, SEC, and Big 12 aren't 12 in terms of talent.

Here's how I see it. Notre Dame has 3 victories over top 3 schools in their conferences (Mich, Okla, Stan), and another game against USC. What cupcake schedule are you talking about?
