Hawaii! Time to break out the Kool-Aid!


Recommended Posts

I said it as a "realist" that chances were that we'd lose to USC. Sure, we could have pulled it out and THAT is EXACTLY the reason for this thread.

 

Time for Hawaii to take the wooden spoon out of the pitcher and start serving up mugs of kool-aid! It is NOW that I will start drinkign up. Yes, after a loss I am ready to drink it down.

 

Now is the time to be optimistic. We have shown that we can play with the elite and there are no other teams left that are elite.

 

This is the time we can say we can roll from here on out and win the rest!

 

BC will be a test ONLY because they've had our number for years. They are not a great team and their little streak against us ends in 5 days!

 

There are NO teams left to make Jimmy and Co. nervous! They expected to win against USC and almost did. How much more confidence will they have with the rest of the schedule.

 

If we can just get a small amount of production and improvement from our defense, these games should not be close!

 

Some are saying that a 10-2 Irish team still can't make the BCS. Bullshit! When did we NOT make a BCS Bowl being 10-2 or better. It would happen!

 

10-2 and BCS!!!!

 

No matter who we play, short of Florida, we have already proven that we belong on the field. If USC belongs on the field with ANY team in the country, then NOTRE DAME does as well. We were 1 play, dare I say, 2 feet from beating USC. One missed extra point, Jimmy just throwing an inch shorter to Rudolph and ND has a victory over the "great" USC. EVEN WITH OUR SHITTY DEFENSE!

 

We can win ANY BCS bowl in the country by years end!

 

Rip them little kool-aid packets open Hawaii!!!!

 

I'm F**king thirsty!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:flame:

Keep dreaming. Texas, Alabama would sweep the floor with the Irish.

 

So, you are saying that Texas, Alabama would sweep the floor with USC?

 

I ask because that is really what you are saying.

 

You know this as a fact because you have stated this as a fact. Not an opinion. If indeed you think this is a fact, then I can say nothing to change your mind because you don't see fact of evidence. If Rudolph's arms were 2 inches longer, we, most likely, would have beat USC.

 

So you are saying, as fact, that Texas would make USC their bitch, hands down?

 

Please explain.

Alabama, I might agree with, but if you watched Texas in the 1st half against OK they looked like garbage. Did not see 2nd half as I was at the ND game.

some reasons why I would think that we wouldnt get in a BCS with a 10-2 record is:

 

1) '05 we were first ranked after wk 1. we lost early to MSU and then a close game vs. the #1 team in the country then we won out, but we were the #9 team in the nation going into the USC game. After that loss, we were #9 and #12 and we ended the reg season at #5 and #6

 

2) '06 we were ranked #2 and #3 preseason. we lost early to Michigan and fell to #12 and #13 then climbed up to 6th vs. USC. After losing to USC, we fell to #12, and ended reg season at #11.

 

3) There werent as many at large teams in '05 and '06 as there are now.

 

10 teams play in 5 BCS bowls.

 

2 for NC

8 for 4 other BCS bowls

 

2 SEC teams obv (helps b/c there cant be 3 teams from 1 conf or else SEC would play in every BCS bowl lol)

1 Big 12

1 Big East

1 ACC

1 Big 10

1 Pac 10

3 at large teams

 

So the last 2 teams come down to the highest rated Big East, ACC, Big 10, Pac 10, non-BCS schools.

 

Right now ahead of us there are (22) schools:

 

3 ACC schools. Miami (5-1), Ga Tech (6-1), & Va Tech (5-2)

 

4 Big East schools. Cincinatti (6-0), Pitt (6-1), WVU (5-1), USF (5-1)

 

5 Pac 10 schools. USC (5-1), Oregon (5-1), Arizona (4-2), Oregon St. (4-2), Cal (4-2)

 

5 Big 10 schools. Iowa (7-0), Penn St. (6-1), Ohio St. (5-2), Wisconsin (5-2), Michigan (5-2)

 

5 non-BCS schools. Boise St. (6-0), TCU (6-0), BYU (6-1), Houston (5-1), Utah (5-1)

 

I know that a lot of these teams play each other, so that means they'll cancel each other out. This gives us a shot, no doubt, so dont go crazy because there are so many schools ahead of us. I'm just saying that it's less likely this year b/c of the chance for undefeated non-BCS schools, and so many schools with 1 or 2 losses.

Speedster your kool- aid was just perfect -- you hardly need me at all !!

 

Anyone who thinks we wont get into the BCS at 10- 2-- is just talking from bitter disappointment or is NUTS!

 

WE ARE AN ABSOLUTE LOCK FOR A BCS__ IF__ AND THATS STILL A BIG IF__WE RUN THE TABLE!-----hell we are only down to # 26 in the writers poll--- IF we end up winning 6 straight-- with only two losses, last second losses to USC and MICHGAN--- well my my-- we will be in a very big bowl-----and ND will be counting their money--- and Charlie with 3 BCS checks in 5 years-- will be set to finish his contract!!

 

So then there are those that dont think we should go to the BCS with the 2006 theory--the theory we will be outmatched so lets get a smaller bowl we can win---- LOL-- NOW THAT IS ONE OF THE MOST RIDICULOUS THEORIES------we take both USC and Purdue to the last second---- That shows you two things---we can compete with ABSOLUTELY ANYONE ON THE PLUS SIDE----AND ON THE MINUS SIDE__WE ARE JUST AS LIKELY TO WIN AN ORANGE BOWL OR SUGAR BOWL AGIANST A TOP 8 TEAM--- AS WE ARE TO LOOSE THE MOTOR CITY BOWL AGAINST AN UNRANKED TEAM__-- LOL---so WE BOTH WILL GET AND DESERVE TO BE IN THE BCS WIT A 10-2----------NOW LETS RUN FREAKIN BC OUT OF THE STADIUM--DAMN THAT WILL MAKE EVERYONE FEEL SO SO MUCH BETTER!____ALOHA GO IRISH!

my prediction for BCS Bowls.

 

ACC - Ga Tech (tough call, Miami-VT-GT all beat each other, I think winner of their division wins ACC title gm)

Big East - Cincy (beat USF on the rd, tough gms vs. Pitt & WV ahead)

Big 10 - Iowa (wins Big 10 tiebreaker with one loss b/c PSU will beat OSU and Iowa beat them, I could def see them losing twice though)

Pac 10 - USC (if they beat Oregon and avoid any slip ups then they win it again)

SEC - Bama/FL winner

Big 12 - Texas

at large #1 - Bama/FL loser

at large #2 - Boise St (dont see them losing again, toughest games are @La Tech and Idaho & Nevada at home)

at large #3 - ACC team that doesnt make championship gm (VT or Miami)

at large #4 - Oregon (tough road ahead for Oregon on the road vs. Wash, Stanford, & Arizona, plus USC & Ore St at home)

 

So many things could happen in the next 4 wks. This is why I said to Hawaii, talk to me in a few wks if we still only have 2 losses then we could really dig deep

Teams are dropping like flies. Big Twelve is a mess of mediocrity and parity. Notre Dame

would no doubt whip Texas or Oklahoma and I study those two teams religiously. It is time

to enjoy the coming run. Each week teams will fall unexpectedly and wins over Purdue and Michigan

State will look better and better. Our schedule took a big jump after this weekend.

Did anyone we play even lose?? All the optimism was warranted. We should be a one loss team

right now. Hope Michigan loses to Penn State this weekend. I still say we beat them by 20 points!!!

read my posts. we're far from a lock right now. there's basically 3 spots up for grabs and a lot of teams vying for those spots. we're in a different situation as we were in '05 & '06. We're not ranked right now.

I agree with you that Texas did not look impressive on Saturday. But look at the other games they have played this season. Wow.

 

yea, Texas looked good playing teams like Wyoming, LA Monroe, UTEP, Colorado...sorry, but Texas is way over-hyped.

 

Alabama's strengths actually play well against our defense. We can stop the run...I've seen it...if you watch Bama's games, you'll see that they are pretty one-dimensional...run, and run, then setup play-action, where their QB is inconsistent at best. I'm not saying we definitely win, but we can certainly make a game of it. If we can move the ball on USC, we can move the ball on anybody.

if we're gonna be in a BCS bowl then we need Michigan to beat PSU this wkend or MSU to beat Iowa.

 

We need the big 10 teams on our schedule to make some noise in the big 10. Purdue & MSU did that already with Purdue beating OSU & MSU beating Michigan. Purdue was the best 1-5 team in the country n they proved that this wkend. Now they're the best 2-5 team :-)

Ziggy-- obviously we wouldnt get a bcs bid now--- but we wont be unranked at 10-2 -- we will definitely be in the top 14-- absolutely no doubt about that--- 10-2 a 6 game winning streak--- only 2 ,last second losses to USC & MICHIGAN--- no doubt about the top 14----that qualify's us for an at large spot--- and the anti-ND agenda-- EVAPORATES WHEN MONEY IS INVOLVED--- you will even find ESPN hyping us at 10-2 for a BCS spot---no matter what the numbers say-- i dont know if someone has to get screwed but it wont matter-- at 10-2 we will get and deserve a bcs bid-- ill lay 1000 to 100 on that--- so lets just beat BC and get to 7-2 and all will be crystal clear by PITT WEEKEND ALOHA GO IRISH!

we would need a lot to happen like I said before. like moving up 20 spots to even being considered. we're in the 30th range right now.

 

Part of the reason why is I dont see Boise St. losing, and that's 1 team. Plus I wouldnt be surprised if TCU got in as well. Then there's FL/Bama loser, and we're left with 1 spot.

I respect all the thought you have put into the various combinations Ziggy---but i am absolutely convinced at 10-2 we make it in---if someone seemingly more deserving has to be passed over then so be it!--- these are at large bids-- that means they pick the eligible team THAT THEY WANT__( AS LONG AS THEY QUALIFY)--- the at large bid was invented with our name on it-- and at 10-2 - it is going to be ours!----- heres a one sided bet-- IF WE GO 10-2-- LOL-- THATS STILL A BIG TASK__ BUT NONETHELESS IF WE DO__ AND DONT GET A BCS AT LARGE--ILL SEND YOU A CASE OF CHOCOLATE COVERED MACADAMIA NUTS__ AND 2 DOZEN ANTHERIUMS FOR THE LADY OF YOUR CHOICE____!! aloha-- lets hope we get to find out who wins---GO IRISH!!

How did I know you were going to bypass all logic and factual reasoning to be blindly optimistic? You're nothing if you're not consistent. :-D
