Lol, #37 Michigan State.  And how the hell did South Carolina get that far up!?

I watched so many college football games this weekend... I'm sick of them!  But I KNOW that'll be changed once the games start again.

I know we are only in week 3 (soon to be week 4) of the season, but if Notre Dame continues to play like they have and still get a bowl bid I will be VERY disappointed in the BCS Bowl System as a whole (more than usual). They only have to have 6 wins to be eligible, but if they "steal" a bowl from anyone (Big East or not) with a losing year I will go nuts.

The sad truth is that they could have a terrible year and STILL get one ... simply because they know people will show up ... although that might change this year ... the fans are NOT happy with the Irish. Who knows ...

GO BULLS!

Looking at Notre Lame's schedule, I don't see them winning 6 games.

If we blow out UNC and the right combination of teams lose or get blown out, we'll find ourselves in the Top 20. One game at a time, but wishful thinking  :)

I'll be rooting for:

Miami over TAMU

Arkansas over Kentucky

Bama over UGA

LSU over South Carolina

Those losses would push us into the top 20 with a blowout against UNC.

And just hope to god that West Virginia doesn't lose to ECU.

i think we will be in the top 20 for the WV game.  I see Texas AM losing, Georgia losing, Kentucky losing, and South Carolina losing bad enough they drop below us

If Georgia wins Alabama will drop below us.  I'm not worried about that game.

Lobo, do some research before you post this stuff.  ND like every other BCS program has to get 6 wins to be bowl eligible.  Explain how this is different from USF two years ago when we went to Charlotte?  We were 6-5, with one of those wins being against a 1AA team.    How will they 'steal' a bowl with a losing record?  They have a 12 game schedule, so at worst they would be 6-6 for bowl eligibility.  It won't be a BCS Bowl either.  It would be a less than desirable place like the Insight.com Bowl or so.  I understand some people hating ND.  I'm OK with it really.  But the majority of time its people that don't even have a clue of how the system works.  I believe Navy accepted a deal last year for Charlotte before the season started.  All they had to do was get 6 wins.  No one ever brings this up, but they'll bring up ND at the drop of a hat.

Lobo, do yourself a favor and read up a little more on college football.  I'd hate to see/hear others reading your stuff and thinking its correct.
