Any mention of Notre Dame and BCS game makes me laugh, people talk about strength of schedule, Notre Dame have 2 good teams in USC and Pitt, apart from that they don't have that much and add to the fact they have 7 home games.

Those are the only two currently ranked teams on ND's schedule, but they play several teams that have been ranked this season (Washington, Michigan, Boston College) and others that are often ranked each year (Michigan State, Purdue, Connecticut, Stanford). They don't have any Eastern Michigans or Delaware States on their schedule like most schools.

So they shouldn't schedule Eastern Michigans, I still don't think they should be in a BCS game, that schedule just doesn't look that impressive to me. They had to pull off several last minute victories in which if a team which wants to goto the BCS should be winning easily, just like Iowa, Iowa have to be the most overrated team in the nation just about.

Still undefeated, though.

most of those you listed are ranked in college baskeball (Purdue,Conn,Stanford and Mich.ST) I havent known them to be all that great of college football teams.

and Washington shouldnt have been ranked at all, they might as well played Delaware St, thats about comparable.

Boston College, I didnt know was ranked at all this year

and Michigan is average, maybe barely above.

anyways ND dont deserve anything except a meaningless non-BCS bowl game

Team schedules are made years in advance...there is no way to tell which teams will be ranked when the schedule is set. I was saying that the teams on Notre Dame's schedule are often-ranked teams and not the creampuffs that fill most schools' out-of-conference schedule.

Didn't you know that you automatically have a powder-puff OOC schedule and are undeserving of a BCS game unless:
-You play a top-5 SEC team every week
-All of those teams stay in the top-5 all season
-You are in the SEC, then you can still be considered bad-ass by playing teams like Furman, Northern Arizona, Tennessee Tech, and Memphis right in the middle of Conference play.

What's the difference between playing cream puffs in the middle of a season or playing cream puffs at the beginning of a season ?
