    The Irish have a chance to tell critics to STFU. If they get blown out, it will be fodder for 8 team playoffs.

    It's still a pretty imperfect system imo to have a committee subjectively judging which team is #4 and which team is #5. If Notre Dame gets s acked by Clemson the committee is also going to need to address the fact Notre Dame has the ability to give itself a cupcake schedule and then make the playoff over superior 1 loss teams.
    NDs strength of schedule much better then Clemsons.

    ND simply has no business in the final four. Being THE FIGHTING IRISH is the only reason they are here.

    Clemson so many superior athletes, far superior team speed.

    Clemson 38 ND 21

    they're also undefeated, playing all D-1A schools and 10 out of 12 in power 5 conferences

    Yep,the only reason.


    The power of Notre Dame

    Brian Kelly and Notre Dame are in a good position. Gregory Shamus/Getty Images If Notre Dame goes undefeated, they are******* in the playoff because they are Notre Dame************. Even if we leave their name out of it, ESPN's playoff predictor gives them a 62% chance to be one of the final four.

    How many top 20 teams did Clemson play?

    number 19 texas A&M
    number 20 Syracuse

    How many top 20 teams did Oklahoma play?
    number 15 texas (twice)
    number 16 west virginia

    How many top 20 teams did Alabama play?
    number 19 texas A&M
    number 11 LSU
    number 18 mississippi state
    number 5 georgia

    How many top 20 teams did Notre Dame play?
    number 7 michigan
    number 20 syracuse
    (and number 22 northwestern)

    ---

    that's the end of regular season CFP rankings
    at the time ND played their opponents, 4 of them were ranked

    clemson is the clear favorite, but to say that ND is only in the playoffs because of name brand, and not team performance, is dumb

    **for alabama's SOS, keep in mind that SEC rankings are extremely inflated**

    I'm not the only one saying that, you do know that, right? You really don't understand the FIGHTING IRISH in college football? Win one for the Gipper, The Four Horsemen, etc....

    As usual, your argument got destroyed and blew up in your face, so you resort to vague “You don’t really watch football do ya slick?” insults that don’t in any way address his argument.

    Reasons why ND is in the top 4 (my order):
    + 12-0
    + Beat 2 ranked teams, one a spanking (Syracuse) and the other a fairly decisive win (Michigan)
    + 10 out of 12 opponents from Power 5
    + Notre Dame is a marquee program with clout, history, money etc.
    + No FCS opponents on schedule

    Which 2 teams are going to leapfrog ND to keep ND out?
    Oklahoma who lost to UT ?
    2-loss Georgia
    tOSU who got destroyed by Purdue?
    2-loss Michigan who they beat?
    the poor saps at UCF?

    So all those.....it's the brand...........forever are all wrong?

    If we had 4 undefeated teams ND gets in. The media loves them, college fans adore them. All that history is huge, tradition huge in college football.

    I don’t understand your argument, if ND were 1 of the 4 undefeated teams and it got in, how would that not be them getting in on merit?

    I think ND keeps this game close considering everyone is bashing them. Usually how it works.

    so is oklahoma

    There is not a small chance that ND gets ravished by Clemson but after going undefeated with a Power 5-level schedule they clearly should be included in the top 4, imo imo.

    The playoffs isn’t about the four best teams. It’s about making everyone happy.
