Committee did a great job getting two of the best four teams in the country into the final four.

On another note, Josh Jacobs would look WONDERFUL in a Bears uni.

The same two teams in it for 3 straight years now and fourth they've met for the championship. Parity does not exist in college ball.....

Notre Dumb was the most over rated team ever. You have to stop playing the west cost teams and Army, Navy etc. Michigan was their toughest opponent - Michicken was destroyed yesterday.

That's a ridiculous statement, really. What are they supposed to do, blow games? Is it their fault that USC and Fla St weren't worth sh&t this year? They did play Michigan who had supposedly CFB best defense. They also beat Stanford and Northwestern, neither of whom are bad teams at all. They did what they had to do to get where they were. Kelly blew it with his sh+t calls and they quit blitzing which let Clemsons freshman QB throw all over them. When they were blitzing they were holding him back. They quit for whatever reason. 3-3 when they blitzed...when they quit, it got out of hand....

Well ND has to stop playing the Ball U's The following week after ND escaped by Ball U the Alabama of the north IU demolished Ball U. Their schedule is horrible. Even traditional rival USC had a down year via some of their fans I know. Even OK with the Heisman QB couldnt play with Alabuma.

I think you can acknowledge that the ND schedule was not as tough as the other competition, but these schedule are set years in advance.  FSU has been strong, Michigan, etc.  But it wasn't the schedule that an SEC team plays, because the SEC places so many teams in the top 15 year after year.

Everyone plays cake opponents. Alabama this year played Citadel, La Lafayette and Mercer this year, three cake teams. Clemson played Kent St, Citadel, FURMAN, and Duke.

I'm a big ND fan and I've accepted that this is probably as good as they can get.  Their top CB Love went out for the 2nd quarter and Clemson abused the backup when he came in.  3 TDS in that 2nd quarter until love got back in after half time.  ND will just never have the depth to compete against elite squads because of the admission requirements.
 Everything has to go perfect to even get to the playoffs.

Would agree totally with that, Octagon. I don't know where they go from here for next season. Get back in it to only once again get spanked by those loaded teams which are basically semi pro? And they're loading up again with recruits so ND will never get another title. I'm going to guess they'll maybe win 8 games next season at which point they'll get rid of Kelly. What they really need is to change their requirements for football recruits and hire a top notch recruiting coach and get some of those 5 stars. But they won't do that because it lowers the schools avg. So this season is as good as it's going to get for them anymore, I agree totally...

I'd stick with Kelly.  I think he's a good coach, especially since he had his feet put to the fire a few years ago.  Only thing I think he needs to do is have chip long install a more gimmicky passing offense.  The blue chip OL prospects are going to get a little more scarce without the allure of heistand coaching them up.  They can't be fairly vanilla and hope to win on the elite level.

Other than that, it's just Kelly doing his best and hoping for no major injuries and the ball bouncing their way.  (The kick return fumble getting overturned was criminal).

Maybe Urban Meyer wants the job in a couple years, that's the only clear upgrade that I could see happening.
