    I listen to a lot of college football talk and read a lot of content. Iíve yet to see one person say ND shouldnít have been in the playoffs.

    For the love of all thatís good RTS. Ohio State is in the Rose Bowl because ND went undefeated. Thatís the only way ND gets in. So in the 1 year they do go undefeated theyíll keep out 1 loss conference champs. Thatís never been what weíre discussing. Weíre discussing what happens to ND when they lose a game. Going undefeated is pretty rare in college football. I just donít think any team should hinge their chances on going undefeated. Thatís...

    What do you mean most of the time those teams go undefeated? We’ve only had 3 undefeated teams in the 4 years prior to this year and non of them won the championship. The 3 undefeated teams we had this year was an anomaly. Going undefeated and winning a title is relatively rare in college football.

    Spin it however you want. Having to go undefeated to make the playoffs is a risky tactic. Props to ND for having a great season this year. If they lose 1 game next year I hope they have fun in the Orange Bowl.

    But youíre ND. You have a brand like Ohio State and Alabama. Actually a bigger brand than Ohio State and Bama in a lot of peopleís eyes. Yet ND is the only team that has to go undefeated to make the playoffs.

    If you are trying to get me to say ND is a bad team I won’t because they aren’t.

    I mean if you want to get in a conversation about FCS games for Power 5 schools Iíll gladly agree with you. But you arenít considering what that 13th game represents.

    The deal ND has with the ACC only benefits the ACC. They get the resume booster if they beat ND and they arenít hurt by losing to ND. ND on the other hand canít lose to the ACC schools and still make the playoffs. Itís a raw deal for ND IMO.

    But they arenít even. They are playing 12 games while the conference champ teams play 13 and recieve the benefit of being a conference champ. Something the committee explicitly states is a tie breaker between even teams.

    Yet, if ND joined a conference they wouldn’t have to worry about a system being “rigged” against them.

    Again I’m not arguing that point. I’m saying you have to work within the current system and if you don’t do things that benefit you in the current system then it’s foolish and irresponsible to your fans and players.

    Conference affiliation helps recruiting IMO. That’s why the SEC was so eager to add Texas A&M. That’s why the Pac 12 expanded east. That’s why West Virginia joined the Big 12. That’s why Maryland and Rutgers are in the Big 10 (TV also played a big part in these two but DMV and NJ are fertile recruiting grounds).

    When the committee clearly states that in the event of equal resumes (teams that play a power 5 schedule and have the same number of losses), conference championships are the tie breaker. So unless you have multiple 2 loss power 5 champs you have zero chance. And in the event of multiple 2 loss champs you still have to worry about a team like Alabama or Ohio State who may have 1 loss, but didn’t win their division. That’s who you’re comparing...

    Like it or not this is the system we have. In this system whether you believe it’s fair or unfair, ND would be better served being in a conference. Is that fair? That’s not up to me to decide. All I know is not joining a conference when it would help you in your quest to win a national championship, is a textbook definition of stubborn.

    In 2015 they would have been jumped by 1 loss Michigan State after they won the Big 10. They would have been behind Alabama, Clemson, Oklahoma, and Michigan State.

    To put in bluntly, yes. Being in a conference is a HUGE advantage imo. Now some bad coaching hires certainly helped.

    When did I say it guarantees a spot? The only thing I’ve said is right now a 1 loss ND is guaranteed not to be in.

    For the 10 billionth time, it was because it was a rare year where ND went undefeated. That has never been my argument. An undefeated ND will always get in. A 1 loss ND will never get in. A 1 loss Ohio State has gotten in twice.

    Rutgers is run by incompetent people. And once again sit didn’t work out for Ohio State this year because it’s the one year it did for ND. All but 2 years in my lifetime has NDs plan worked for them in some capacity and neither resulted in a national championship. It doesn’t change the fact that ND has to go undefeated and Ohio State doesn’t.

    Obviously you haven’t spent much time in major cities in the Northeast and Midwest. Just because there aren’t a lot of Catholic Irish fans in KY doesn’t mean they don’t exist.

    The fact that ND isn’t one of those 12 teams should tick ND fans off. That’s an embarrassment for such a proud university.

    All I can compare it to is my own fandom. If Ohio State went on a stretch like ND has these past 30 years where not only are they rarely competing for championships but for a lot of those years been completely irrelevant, Columbus would burn to the ground. Same with Tuscaloosa, Lincoln, Ann Arbor, Norman, Austin, Baton Rouge, etc. I don’t see why ND fans don’t expect the same thing from their team as fans of these other schools do. I’ll never...
