Again looking back at ND's schedule in which most thought was pretty solid heading into the season..
The Schedule is still a fricking joke. Image: http://www.herloyalsons.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/Notre-Dame-Schedule.jpg
Every single Big Ten opponent is down this season.
All those ACC, Big East or whatever opponents are trash.
Stanford who you struggled with at home and who was jobbed in OT lost to Washington?
The best win against OU and they are down right awful on defense. Disgustingly awful.
You get USC who is awful this season with a freshman QB making his first start and still make a game out of that.
You can hate on teams like Ole Miss and Mississippi St all you like but truth is ND would most likely lose to one of these teams. Especially if they struggle with teams like Pitt this season. It's all good tho, not trying to say they shouldn't be in it. They are undefeated with their joke of a schedule that the REAL Myth is suppose to be of significance. On top of all that they still don't even play a conference championship. ND loses AT least 3 games in the SEC and it is what it is.
