There are no super teams


Recommended Posts

Whether it's a one-year deal or a long-range reality, we seem to have entered a period of time where margin or error among the growing upper-echelon of college football is non-existent.

 

The good news is, ND is absolutely among the upper echelon again. And I'll take my chances with this group and this coaching staff on any Saturday. There is no one that scares me.

 

ND is no longer burdened by a lack of talent.

 

It's all execution now.

 

And when you take the field against good teams every Saturday - and ND does that on a weekly basis - it's not enough just to bring your talent level.

 

EG played a careless game yesterday. You can't do that.

Just what did I say that was wrong? Does ND have a defense? Is EG a turnover machine? Take off the rose colored glasses and see things the way they are.

 

I am seeing things for what they are. You are a sourpuss.

 

Have we struggled defensively lately? Sure, but we also have a lot of young talent that is capable of stopping anybody.

 

Has EG turned the ball over too much? Absolutely, but he also has proven he can win games almost by himself.

 

As with a lot of things in football, there is a gray area.

With the problems the Irish are experiencing RIGHT NOW they are an average team. Until they get these problems corrected they will remain an average team.

Right now Alabama, TCU, Auburn and LSU would beat ND.

 

See a pattern with the teams you listed?

 

Expecting to hang with teams from the deep south and recruiting hotbed of Texas, combined with the availability of JUCOs, is like expecting to land in Manchester and kick some *** at soccer. We have a lot more work to do.

So four of the best 10 teams in the nation would beat ND, butcthatcmakes them average?

 

Notee Dame has lost to the #2 ranked team on a questionable call and the #7 team after 5 TO.

 

You guys make it seem like ND lost to Northwestern St and Lower Manhattan U.

Does it matter HOW ND lost those 2 games???? Bottom line is they lost.

Good teams find a way to win. Good teams correct mistakes to make themselves better. Good teams have that certain attitude, that certain swagger that makes other teams start to think they are defeated before the game even starts.

Notre Dame has not shown any of these traits. They are 1-2 in the past 3 games and could very easily have lost to North Carolina. BK needs to change some things on this team. If that means making a change at QB so be it. The Irish are out of the running of the final 4, what harm would it do to see what MZ can do? If EG goes down with an injury MZ is the new QB. See what he can do now instead of throwing him in cold turkey in a game that really matters.

Good teams find a way to win.

 

Like 4th and 11 vs Stanford?

 

Good teams find a way to win, but then you criticize them for winning against North Carolina? How does that work? They played sloppy at the start and found a way to win, exactly what you said.

 

So who are good teams then?

 

Alabama blew a 4th quarter lead in their loss.

Auburn fumbled on the 1 to lose their game.

LSU blew a game to Alabama.

TCU blew a 21 4th quarter lead.

Michigan St blew a second half lead.

Ohio St lost to a team with a losing record.

Ole Miss fumbled going in to win the game.

 

So all of these teams lost games they were in control of and didn't find a way to win. Not good teams.
