What about Notre Dame? Where do we post?
Right here buddy. We can have Nozz change this to the official Notre Dame thread or something.
Speaking of ND what do you think of the season? Who whould start Jones, Clausen or Sharpley?
I expect ND to go around 7-5 8-4. They are just young. I think they should just give the game ball to Clausen from the start but man thats a hell of a beginning and may not be the best idea.
I mean playing GTech, Michigan, Penn State first three is not a nice start.
I don't think starting Clausen to start the season is smart. But I think we'll see him if they struggle early. I'm excited to see Armando Allen and some of the other big time recruits.
There's only 4 independents and Notre Dame is basically the only big one, so it really doesn't deserve its own forum but it can have its own thread...
I will make this the Independents thread...and you all can talk about those schools in here ok...
What I don't get is why ND basketball team is on the big east and the football team are in no conferences? It makes no damn sense!!
Notre Dame gets more money for being and independent b/c they get to schedule all their games, they get exclusive broadcasting rights and market their own apparel. One other reason is because there are no independents in college basketball its pretty impossible to do a schedule with out a conference. Also Notre Dame Football is more prestigious then Basketball.
Also teams that are in a conference and make a bowl have to divide their bowl earning with all the other teams in the conference. Notre Dame doesn't have to split anything with anybody. So those big BCS payouts are a lot bigger for ND than other schools.
I've also heard that Knute Rockne wanted to join the Big Ten for years back in the day and was not let in for various reasons.
Well I'll Take Ownership of this Thread lol
