yeah, but you can only start one at a time. all those guys are in school right now! well, stafford and harrell are out. texas should be good this year. I would like to see florida play them. I still don't think that anyone is going to be able to touch florida this season. they returned everyone on defense, and got some sick defensive recruits. notre got a good defensive recruit. I wouldn't mind notre dame going to a BCS bowl. I don't like them, but I like their tradition.

I realize you can only start one I'm just saying there is alot of talent in Texas.

Hopefully we can make through this year and play Florida. There always seems to be a game that you don't expect on your schedule that bites you so the front runners should be careful.

Exactly why Notre Dame isn't elite anymore. They got a good recruit...as in 1. That's why Navy ended that ridiculous streak against them. BCS is a long way off fellas.

I am not a Notre Dame fan, but it seems to me college football is a lot like boxing. When it comes to money and who will bring in the most money, whether it's a BCS bowl game or a title fight. The name matters!!! And Notre Dame as much as I hate it, still has a large following, and the bowl offiials know it. That's why I asked, if they got 9 wins do you think they deserve a BCS game.

Personally, I hope they do get better, that way it would be an impressive win for USC. If N.D continues to be lousy, USC should consider dropping them from their schedule.

An Independent BCS berth with 9 wins, you are crazy. That's not even a good season for a top school.

9-3 probably will not be good enough to go to a BCS game, but it will not matter, they will be lucky to finish 7-5!!!!!

Michigan, while the did suck last year, played ND pretty tough. They had alot of stupid turnovers that cost them, otherwise it could have been a different outcome.

I think ND will have to be at their best to beat Nevada, that being said so will we, our new secondary will have to show up. I just hope that ND fans are not overlooking us and booking that we're an automatic win.
