No love for the Irish, huh?

I totally agree in your previous post that Notre Dame is overrated. Who have they beat? They have exactly three wins aganist bowl eligible teams (7-4 Michigan, 6-5 BYU, and 6-4 Navy). That's it! Plus they lost to a 5-6 Michigan State team, who Ohio State and Penn State both defeated. The combined record of the teams Notre Dame has defeated is 42-56.

Ohio State on the other hand is also 9-2, losing to a 11-0 Texas, and, well, losing to your 10-1 #$%&! HAHA.

But Ohio State has defeated five teams who are bowl eligible, and the combined record of teams Ohio State has defeated is 53-48.

And though Notre Dame is not in a conference, Oregon can't say that they will be Co-Pac 10 champs. Ohio State can.

Lou Holtz said on ESPN's College GameDay said ND deserves a BCS bid because they are Notre Dame, and it's a great story. Who friggin' cares! They dont deserve it! I am so tired of Notre Dame getting preferential treatment! If the Fiesta Bowl takes the Irish, then they better take the Buckeyes. OSU is more deserving than ND!

Mark May on the same show said that he predicts it will be Notre Dame vs. Ohio State in the Fiesta, and if that's the case, I can hardly wait. I hope we beat the snot out of them!

ND doesn't deserve it. ND is going to get embarassed whether they play Ohio State or PSU in the Fiesta Bowl. Both teams have great defenses with offenses that can move the ball on anyway. Especially when you consider that Stanford's back up QB T.C. Ostrander was able to efficiently run the Cardinal offense in the second half.

Ohio State may very well be the fourth best in the country right now. However, LSU and VPI have both managed to go 10-1 in two of the toughest conferences in the country.

I think West Virginia can hold their own against LSU in the Sugar Bowl, assuming that is where they end up. Pat White, Steve Slaton and Co. have all been having tremendous seasons and they can move the ball on anyone.
