I don't see where Kelly is going with this. This years schedule is about as favorable as it gets. Here is the generic version:

Should win
Georgia (lost)
Should win
Michigan State
Should win
Should win
Off
USC
Should win
Should win
Miami (FL) (lost)
Should win
Stanford (lost)

I think his point is they played Georgia (loss) and Stanford (loss). Replace those 2 games with G5 cupcakes and would Notre Dame have a shot at 11-1? Maybe. He'd still have the ranked wins over Michigan St and USC, which would've been better than what Bama had...

The point here Mark is that if ESPN has the rights to the game, and they do for the CFP, they will yack up Notre Dame just as fast as Ohio State and Alabama. Kelly knows that.

Again, Kelly runs his mouth a lot. I would not put too much stock in that.

Listen to what Jack Swarbrick says going forward.

So you're saying UConn < Notre Dame?

The 13th data point, much like the committee, is a bunch of crap

But......we will have the 13th data point safety valve at the committee's disposal at least until the ESPN contract with the CFP expires in another 8 years.

Not at all.


Y'all are confusing the use of a 13th data point in the comparison of all the data points with the 13th data point being more important than others. It's not. Yes Ohio State had a 13th data point and Alabama didn't. They also had two data points that were double digit losses, including the data point where they lose by 31 points to a middle of the road team. Because of the other two data points the 13th data point wasn't enough to push Ohio State past Alabama.

The 13th data point is important when at the end two or more teams are fairly equal. With the two blowout losses Ohio State wasn't close enough to equal to Alabama for the 13th data point to push them past the Tide.

I like Notre Dames scheduling..... I just think they need to either go undefeated or have only one lose. Any thing less and it's not reason to discuss.
Be careful trying to soften up your schedule you don't make it too soft and get TCU'd...lol

RE: With Alabama making the playoff ND looks to shift priorities
The ACC and Notre Dame both know that the Irish don’t need the conference anymore. ND didn’t want to be lumped in with what the old Big East was becoming. Now, the Big East actually resembles much more of the original Big East which they joined. Consider that DePaul, Marquette, and Butler are three out of four of ND’s most played basketball opponents. I have no doubts that Notre Dame may be on the lookout to join the Big East come time. They will have no trouble continuing to build one of the country’s toughest and unique football schedules. In addition, their bowl prospects will once again be open again. 04-wine

Interesting!
I hope you are correct. I for one do not want Notre Dame to become a full time member of the ACC. I thought it was inevitable, but not desirable.
