Next Year


Recommended Posts

Will it take 12-0 to make the playoffs next year?? I think we could possibly get in at 11-1 depending on the perceived strengths of the other one loss teams. Not having a 13th game hurts us for sure. Georgia Tech scares the heck out of me (wins over Clemson, Georgia and Miss. State this year).

I was thinking about this yesterday too. And I think the answer is yes ND has to be undefeated. Look what happened to TCU and Baylor. That same thing will happen to ND. I would be shocked if the Big 12 isn't working on a playoff game right now. Which means even harder for ND. ND needs to hope for a 6 or 8 team playoff and fast.

TCU and Baylor didnt make it because they have no name recognition... ND is fine on that front.

This! The bottom line is still money. Putting osu and meyer in the playoffs meant more money than tcu and patterson.

 

TCU didn't make it because they lost head-to-head with Baylor.

Baylor didn't make it because they have no name recognition.

If TCU had won the conference outright (instead of being co-champions with Baylor, who beat them), even with one loss, I believe they would have been in the final 4.

I think TCU is becoming a bit like Oregon. Building name recognition through repeated success over a 10-15 year period.

Baylor probably has a way to go in that regard.

Let's say ND's only loss was a close one to FSU. They are out. I do not think they would not have gone in place of OSU.

 

I think they would have gotten in because they were ranked quite a few spots ahead of OSU. If ND finished 11-1 this season, they would have reach the final 4. NO doubt in my mind.

If we had gone 11-1 this year we would've made it and I would bet if we only have 1 next year we'll make it.

 

We better hope that's the case because we have usc the week after navy, bad news

 

I respectfully disagree. Everything the committee showed is that you better be in a power 5 conference and win your your championship game.

No way. Not one possibility whatsoever. No way. Did you see what we were ranked at 6-1?

 

No doubt in my mind or Ty Willingham's. Zero percent chance. 0 %.
