    The Stanford love is surprising

    ND and Georgia Tech finish in the top 15. That's partly due to scheduling being weak.

    it's insane. shows how pundits overrate bowl games WAY too much. they have one guy with experience in the secondary, their best dlineman is a transfer from cal who has been injured his entire career and wasn't all that great when healthy, they lost their best playmaker on offense, and Hogan still sucks and shaw is still the most conservative coach in America (he has the worst record in close game of any coach in the pac-12). you'd think they won 10 games last year.

    also last year was the first year that most of the starters were shaw's recruits and shocking they weren't all that good.

    ND's schedule isn't very easy. not a lot of top 10 teams, but plenty of good teams. they did just lose arguably their best defensive player though.

    Unless Alabama can find a QB that isn't Coker they won't be playing for a natty.

    Tech is also a good team that is insanely hard to prepare for.

    Clemson seems overlooked for that same reason.

    As long as Watson is upright and they're playing ACC opponents, I don't think it matters.

    OC by committee will be a failure for Dabo.

    ND is going to be good this year. I think they'll lose 2 games, tops.

    I agree. people don't seem to realize that they have legit nfl talent now. not like the overrated ND teams from a couple of years ago. if they can get any production out of the qb they'll be a top 10 team.

    Dabo will be a failure, period.

    ND loyalists are gettin' restless. Kelly and Irish need to make the playoffs or things could go "south" quick in Southbend
