I think ND is going to get spanked like a naughtly little school girl like they did against michigan and that was in their home turf, this time they are on the road...they are going down.Originally Posted by Kris4153

USC won on a last second penalty R. Bush (Heisman trophy winner) pushed M. Leinart (Heisman runner up) in the back to score a touchdown. USC had Jarrett and Smith last year along with their two heisman canidates. They also lost L. White. On the other side of the ball N.D. has the same team offensively besides WR M. Stovall. Def. that is the same backfield and d line is the same. I dont know guys but losing the guys sc did and winning by a slim margin last year i cant find a reasonable reason why sc will blow nd out.

michigan blew them out and in South Bend no less, later we come to find that Michigan was a pretty good team. this is in LA and the trojans are Legit. Brady Quinn's biggest win ever was at Georgia Tech.Originally Posted by buffb2

According to a computer, sure. But who do they play? I know it's just opinion, and a playoff is in order but I don't see their schedule being ranked that high.Originally Posted by CEDeoudes59

Well, let's just compare...
Ohio State isn't considered to have a soft schedule.
vs. North Illinois (2 Stars)
at. Texas (4.5 Stars, Longhorns are more like 4 Stars now though, could be considered top 5 at the time though)
vs. Cincinnati (2 Stars)
vs. Penn State (3.5 Stars, Penn State was good at the time)
vs. Iowa (3.5 Stars, Iowa undefeated at the time)
vs. Bowling Green (cupcake)
vs. Michigan State (2.5 Stars)
vs. Indiana (2 Stars)
vs. Minnesota (2.5 Stars)
at. Illinois (2 Stars, nearly cupcake though)
at. Northwestern (2 Stars)
vs. Michigan (5 Stars)
toughest games: Michigan, Texas, Penn State, Iowa, Michigan St?
at. Arkansas (4 Stars, although ARK is top 10, they were bad week 1)
vs. Nebraska (4 Stars, they won the Big10 North)
at. Arizona (2.5 Stars)
at. Washington State (3 Stars, were as high as #23)
vs. Washington (2 Stars)
vs. Arizona State (2.5 Stars)
vs. Oregon State (2.5 Stars, formerly #25, but because they beat USC)
at. Stanford (cupcake)
vs. Oregon (3.5 Stars, I'd say they are as good as Iowa/PennSt.)
vs. California (4 Stars)
vs. Notre Dame (4.5 Stars, I think they suck but they were #2 at one point)
vs. UCLA (2.5 Stars)
Toughest Games: Notre Dame, Arkansas, California, Nebraska, Oregon
*in comparsion, their PAC-10 schedule was slightly harder than Ohio States' Big 10 schedule. Out of conferernce, USC's schedule was far better. This is not a knock on the Buckeyes', I just used them as a frame of reference because they are said to have a decent schedule. Strength of schedule is determined after the season however..

I agree, but I have to consider ND a 4.5star team.. The Michigan win vaulted them to #2... and the USC win vaulted them to #2.
When it comes down to it, the best win Notre Dame had (and best ever for Brady Quinn was) 13-7 against Georgia Tech. 13-7, it was I think.
Meyer is right the gators deverse respect, but the reasons he gives are so stupid. "We beat Kentucky" "then we beat Alabama." Nobody takes that bull**** seriously. He should point to that the Gators basically lost to Auburn on the road by one score (fumble return with :00 left had no bearing on the game). Meyer is just assuming that everyone in America buys that the SEC is far better than every conference by far. The USC 50-14 crushing of Arkansas (SEC West champions) is absolutely huge in crumbling Meyers' strength of conference argument.
Gators52, isn't this way -- but the argument on campus "for florida" is that USC lost to Oregon State by 2. Gator fans only point to the loses rather than mentioning anything about the wins.
With that logic, neither USC or Florida deserve a bid. Our national championship game is Boise State vs. Ohio State.

That's a pretty interesting breakdown. I'm pretty interested to see OSU and USC go at it, if that's how it plays out.Originally Posted by CEDeoudes59

Well, Michigan had its shot at #1 and we know what happened. Let's see USC take its chance at #1 and see what may or may not happen

Florida needed a miracle to come back in their loss? Did you even watch the game? If so you would know that Florida ran a hook and ladder play with 0 time remaning and fumbled the ball which Auburn then scored on, that score is inflated. The gators were up at the half, and were only down by one at the beginning of the 4th quater. If the gators won that game it would of been a far cry from a miracle.Originally Posted by Rogue Drone

I might be contradicting myself in this analysis but here it goes. I think UF has a harder schedule than USC, and they lost to a better team than USC. However the manner in which UF has won has shown me that they are not very dominate and they dont deserve the national championship bid over USC. UF's current offense reminds me of USC's offense in the first few weeks of their season, no momentum, poor playing calling, etc. However USC's offense has vastly improved while UF is still stuck in phase 1, i'm not happy with the offensive play calling.Originally Posted by Rogue Drone

Should also be noted all of those games for USC were at home, UF has won all their home games vs ranked teams too.Originally Posted by CEDeoudes59

Notre Dame vs LSU(-8)
Notre Dame will be introduced to more speed than they have seen all year. Mark it down, another bowl loss for Notre Dame and 35+ points for LSU
