Well the last few years we had schedules that looked like murders row and ended up being a cupcake schedule. I think next year's will be the opposite, the only sure wins I see are Temple and Umass. I think next year could be a tough one unless the stars align and we have few injuries/no offseason disasters.

It looks more difficult than this years schedule....anybody agree?

I just hope we are a better team all around to maybe go 10-2

 

Most people are of the opinion that next year's schedule is easier. I think a lot depends these teams: Georgia Tech, Virginia, Texas, and Boston College.

 

The 3 ACC teams need to continue to improve or stay where they are at this year to make the schedule strong. Second year under Strong will Texas get backed to being Texas? That could be a huge determinant.

Georgia Tech and Navy will run ND ragged. Both of these coaches should be on ND's radar for the next head coaching job. Both get the most out of their players and do things the right way.

 

Both Johnson and Niumatalolo have only ever coached the triple option. Can't imagine ND would make a hire like that in this current world.

2015

vs TEXAS -- 6-6. on the rise. tough game. but we need to make a statement.

at UVA -- 5-7. road game against power 5. but if we can't win here, we're done.

vs GA TECH -- #11 10-2. tough game. but if duke can beat em so can we.

vs MASS -- 3-9. How did this game get scheduled?

at CLEMSON -- #18 9-3. Death Valley. Big game.

vs NAVY -- 6-5. Please stop this series. Because it will ensure a L to...

vs USC -- #25 8-4. Getting more schollies. Getting better quicker than us.

at TEMPLE -- 5-6. Another odd addition.

at PITT -- 6-6. Always give us a hard time.

vs WAKE -- 3-9. Should ensure less of a Senior Day shitshow.

at BC (Fenway) -- 7-5. The Vatican Bowl on Lansdowne. No one will be sober.

at STANFORD -- 7-5. They'll be better next year. How much better?

 

75-66. ?-?

 

To be honest, I think it could be the inverse of this year...

 

This year looked brutal to begin but ended up somewhat soft.

 

In 2015, our hard games have the potential to be very hard if USC/TX/STANFORD get better, which they should, plus throw in some more road games and a early coin toss vs TEXAS and it could end up being a much more difficult schedule when said and done.

 

That said, am of two minds...

 

1) Rational : better team, hopefully the improvement outpaces the possible increase in difficulty and we make it to 9-3.

 

2) Vengeful: Time to **** or get off the pot, CBK. Anything worse than 9-3 will be grounds for dismissal.

 

But nowhere in here am I entertaining a top 4 finish. Yes, it happened in 2012. But you have to go back to '93 to find the next top 4 finish. We're just not on that tier. Period.

that would = the death of ND football.

 

no more sellouts. boring style. less talent. ND joins Ivy league.

It would be the death if it didn't work.

 

Would you rather watch an ND team that runs the option, wins 11 games every year and battles for titles or an ND team that runs an uptempo spread, wins 8 games a year and plays in the Music City Bowl?

 

I don't care what style ND plays with if it wins them games.
