With this schedule, Notre Dame football could possibly win 9 games. If they do win 9, and they continue with their annual 30 plus point blowout to USC, should they qualify for a BCS game?

Sept. 5 NEVADA
Sept. 12 at Michigan
Sept. 19 MICHIGAN STATE
Sept. 26 at Purdue
Oct. 3 WASHINGTON
Oct. 10 Open Date
Oct. 17 USC
Oct. 24 BOSTON COLLEGE
Oct. 31 vs. Washington State (at San Antonio, Texas)
Nov. 7 NAVY
Nov. 14 at Pittsburgh
Nov. 21 CONNECTICUT
Nov. 28 at Stanford

No, but I doubt they'll win nine games this year anyway.
What's with them playing Wash. St. in San Antonio?

not a chance they make a BCS game - they will make it to a bowl game though - I see them winning 7-8 games, most of them in not so impressive fashion against a schedule full of cupcakes

For recruiting purposes, they want to "showcase their program" aound the country where they plan to try to recruit. I guess they want to recruit heavily in Texas. They will they will plan on doing this more often around the country.

UGH, everyone wants Texas guys, I can't imagine if we were able to keep more of our guys at UT.

As far Notre Dame I don't know much about some of the teams and how much talent they have this year. Like Boston College, Michigan St or Pitt. I think they should beat Nevada, Wash, Wash St., Navy and Stanford. Im sure as you said in the OP they will get whooped by USC again so thats a loss.

Notre Dame went 7-6 last year - including the bowl win. They're not even worthy of BCS talk.

Matter of fact, you said it yourself Just One of the Guys...a 30 pt blowout loss to USC. That would be their BCS experience.

If Notre Dame is 10-2 at the end of the season, with a 52-14 loss to USC and a 31-21 loss to Pitt; they WILL get a BCS berth.

I wasn't bad mouthing other states, I'm just saying Texas has a ton of talent in it and if we kept more players in state to go to Texas we'd be pretty dang good. Look at some of the QB's who are from Texas. Colt McCoy, Chase Daniel, Matt Staford, Todd Reesing, Graham Harrell.

Doesn't UT's football team have something like 95% of their players from Texas? UT couldn't keep all the talent anyways. With the scholarships down to 85, highly rated Texas talent have to look elsewhere. The days of Texas, USC, Ohio State, Michigan, Notre Dame, Bama, Oklahoma, etc. stocking up on blue chips 3 deep ended in 1978. Since then, scholarships have continued to be reduced. I think it has been great for the game. Heck, back in the 70s, the Floridas and FSUs where just "wee youngins" in the powerhouse program family. That sure has changed, huh?

But we sure have some high school talent here in Texas. There is a running back named Lache Seastrunk from Temple, TX that is highly rated and I would love to see him end up at Oregon, but to "out recruit" UT (as well as LSU, UF, USC, Oklahoma, Miami, Nebraska...)would be difficult.
