Republicans say polls favoring Barack Obama are rigged. Democrats say polls showing Mitt Romney will win are a joke.
I say any poll indicating Notre Dame wont play for the national championship cannot be taken seriously.
And yes, I mean the BCS. It cannot be immune to the insanity that strikes whenever the Irish are sniffing a title.

USC will beat Notre Dame
Are we talking about the same Notre Dame that took 3 overtimes to be PITT!!!!!?
You must be kidding. It’s going to be Oregon. The game of the Century.
Nine-and-oh is nine-and-oh, even if The Irish have squeaked out a couple of those wins by the skin of their teeth. But I think they would be severely overmatched against ‘Bama.... However, let’s not get ahead of ourselves: I think Oregon is the legitimate Number Two right now. And The Irish still have to play USC in LA, and the Trojans, even with three losses, are a dangerous team.
Two tickets available for the BC-ND game at 8:00 this Saturday. 10 yard line.
I wonder if that is the same David Whitley that used to write for the Orlando Sentinel. He was the guy that interviewed me for that paper at a anti-Kerry Freep. He was a good guy.
But the Notre Dame thing is just silly.
No ND in BCS Championship game. What was supposed to be a difficult schedule, at the start ofthe season, has turned into the weakest schedule of the current undefeated teams. With the Big 10 going the way of the Big Least ND’s strength of schedule only has one ranked team so Far, Oklahoma, and one left, USC. Oregon, K State and any SEC team have far superior strength of schedules, plus as this past weekend showed ND will continue to slip as they play Boston College and Wake Forest, while the other undefeated teams play stronger superior teams. Unless the human element uses the demorat playbook and tries to manipulate the polling in ND’s favor. Likely BCS Championship matchups:
Oregon vs. Alabama
Oregon vs. Kansas State
Alabama vs. Kansas State
ND likely will be in Fiesta Bowl, besides USC will end the luck of the Irish this season.
Alabama will play Kansas State for the Championship.
Oregon allowed USC to score 51 points. They won’t catch up.
And I’m afraid that Notre Dame will lose to USC and fall all the way to 10.
Don’t forget about K-State...
If you score 60 points it’s ok to give up 59.
I am a USC fan and I have never seen anyone move the ball on them in my 45 years of watching them.
You may be underestimating the political pull, and the ruthless will to use it, that the Notre Dame football program has, and has always used.
Kansas State’s chances are directly related to Collin Klein returning.
1.The networks, and advertisers, because a Bama/ND game will be HUGE
2. ND fans all over the country..the famed "subway alumni"
3. ND haters all over the country, and there are zillions..who want to see the Irish get squished by the Tide..
You are right about that. But I expect ND to stumble on their way to an "almost perfect season".
I’d rather see K-State make it all the way if only because their coach is one of the best out there. He does more with what he has than anybody else.
From your lips, baby, to God's ears.
That being said, I would LOVE to see Alabama crush the Irish like bugs. I'm just not willing for ND to win any games to get there. As a Tide fan, let me say this: if Auburn and ND were playing, the loudest "WAR EAGLE" you would hear would be coming from my lips. ROLL TIDE
Believe me, this Gator, is the loudest one saying “War Eagle” this week.
Not the Notre Dame team I saw play this week.
Doubt that it will do much good.
Auburn has sorta sucked all the joy about hating them right out of the room this year.
Yes, I agree. He will be just fine for this week, if needed.
There is still a lot of football to be played.... for everybody.
I have to believe they have one good game in them this year.
Offenses like Oregon’s are great, until...your opponent has a month to prepare for it.
You’ve got to be solid on both sides of the ball to win it all, because if you give a quality team a month to prepare (and Oregon will be facing a quality team) they will find a way to defend any offensive juggernaut.
Louisville for National Champion!!!!
You're welcome for Charlie Strong.
ND has the most fans.
Ask the average person who the best team is, and they’ll say Alabama.
Plus, it would be the matching of two legendary programs. No doubt it would be a huge ratings winner.
The latest Notre Dame game proved to me that GOD is on Notre Dame's side.
Coming back from an 8 point deficit with a combined touchdown and a TWO POINT conversion ... was a modern day miracle.
It's going to be a God against God game.
Yeah absolutely, just like they got embarrassed by the Sooners in Norman, OK on a National stage.
I know nothing about Louisville football except that they’re undefeated. I’m just a disgruntled pro-playoff curmudgeon.
2009 Boise State
2006 Boise State
Say it’s true Shoeless Joe...say it’s true! Holding my breath for my fighting Ducks.
“Auburn has sorta sucked all the joy about hating them right out of the room this year.”
There is always joy in hating on Allbarn.
Notre Dame might have touchdown Jesus, but the Tide have Nick
Sabin and the ghost of Bear Bryant....
Haha... good luck Irish, ..call Les Miles for advise and eat
USC will beat down ND like Oregon State did several years ago in the Guests Bowl. Oregon State was much bigger, faster and stronger. It was total domination from start to finish. Oregon State had two first round defensive ends and two future all-pro side receivers.
Notre Dame has no chance against USC.
Boston College, a/k/a Fredo College or Bookie College, is a gehenna of heretical filth. God may not care about the scores of football games, but His Mother does. ND to be 10-0 after Saturday night.
God Made Notre Dame #1!!!!!
Trojans burst under pressure!!! ND will shake down the thunder from the sky in LA in three weeks.
There is much truth in what you say. Still, when they are not giving you any argument, what's the point?
You know what I'd like to see? Auburn and Bama both come undefeated to the Iron Bowl, played at Auburn, of course. Auburn leads until the final play when Bama WINS by ONE point on a disputed play.
How cruel would that be?
Rammer Jammer would NEVER sound so sweet.
And why God stuck it in South Bend we'll never know.
And Notre Dame isn't a monastery any more.
Are the co-ed girls still living across the highway?
I’m glad the Irish have a decent team, but they won’t be in the championship. I doubt they’ll get by USC which would effectively bounce them from consideration.
Fwap....the sound of the air coming out of a balloon. Rolled Tide.
Yes. Too bad, but I’ll live
And, WE’RE BACK!!
Rammer Jammer, and ROLL TIDE
