Well it wonít be because GA doesnít play either of these teams in the regular season. So GA is either playing Bama or LSU on neutral field and thatís pretty much a done deal. So we can say LSU and BAma will win, and guess what it will happen that we will find out. All I am saying is we better hope GA wins and by more than 6.

It was pretty cool. Imagine what we could do while the band is playing 1812 Overture and everyone is pumping their "k"s! Fact is we have to quit having "red outs" in our own stadium and people have to get on their feet for the whole game. Golf clapping ticks me off.

Eric Hansen pointed out in today's SBT that the playoff committee chooses big wins over close losses. Unfortunately, our schedule is looking so lousy that what might have been considered big wins-USC and Michigan- might not, and all our games in November are against currently outranked teams. I hope we don't get shut out of the playoffs, but the opponents on our schedule are not helping.

Only need six teams in front of the Irish to lose. Probably need Georgia to win SEC and for Alabama to pick up two losses.

Also need teams like USC and Stanford and Virginia to end up ranked in Top 25 if possible.

Before the season, I thought finishing 10-2 in the regular season plus a NY6 Bowl WIN would be the best possible outcome. ND played well against UGA, but unfortunately, the teams left on the schedule have done ND no favors. Instead of having three marquee road games, ND has one. And they just played it. Michigan looks terrible and Stanford is a dumpster fire. Virginia and USC could be tough, but ND should beat them both.

It happens every season, about halfway through, 5-6 teams are undefeated and ESPN starts talking about who gets left out. Then, like clock work, those teams all lose (except one or two) and everything sorts itself out. ND could definitely finish 11-1, but it doesnít look like theyíll have a marquee win, unless USC keeps chugging and wins the PAC 12 or Michigan somehow pulls it together and wins the BIG 10. Virginia could be a good win, but itíd be like Syracuse last year where the record is good but because itís not a bluebood (or something close), the win gets discounted.

Georgia needs to win the SEC. Alabama and LSU both need to lose at least once in the regular season and then to Georgia in the SEC Championship Game. There needs to be chaos in the BIG 10 - a 2-loss champion (it would help if that was Michigan). A 2-loss Texas team winning the Big 12 would be the best case scenario. PAC-12 is out, but USC winning the conference championship would help. Clemson is going undefeated. The season is 1/4 over, so a lot can happen. But even if a lot of that does happen, ND probably wonít have enough big wins to get in. Give me a NY6 Game that is winnable (not against 2015 OSU or 2006 LSU) and Iíll be very happy with this season.

Stranger things have happened. No one expected ND to make it in 2012.

We are #10 and have 6 places to move up.

We simply need to knock the crap out of everyone we play.

We blow out teams and win out and b12 craps the bed, then ND has a shot still at the playoffs. PAC-12 is already out, b12 would be out.
Sec
B10
Clemson
And ND Or SEC #2
Either Georgia has to win out or they lose twice. Either way, ND has to win out and beat the crap out of teams like tOSU did that one year. Beating Virginia bad would be a huge step in the eyes of the committee because ND came back after a hard-loss loss.

Thereís a lot of season left and this is college football. Win the next nine games and hope we get in the playoffs then win two more.

Even if we can't get in the playoffs, running the table, getting a NY6 Bowl Game and just destroying a top-tier opponent would really help and be meaningful, too. Best team out of the playoffs and heading into the next season is usually a great start and meaningful towards long-term success.

Also to note, itís so early in the season. 90 percent of the teams ahead of us has yet to play a meaningful game. A lot of these teams have three major teams that could beat them. Itís doubtful, but ND still has a shot at the playoffs.
