    The matchup I really wanted to see is ND vs Bama.

    I think most hype of the 3 unbeaten would be ND Oregon
    Of the undefeated's I'd rather ND play KSU but that's because Oregon scares the hell out of me.

    Not to be an ND homer, but in terms of talking about and viewership ND being in it regardless of opponents will get a huge bump

    Don't look now but Arkansas State is looking to repeat as Sun Belt champions. I'm pretty sure they could beat Navy too!

    I guess the point will be moot when Oregon victim USC beats Notre Dame on the 24th.

    I would be shocked if ND scored 2 TD's against Alabama. As good as ND's defense is, can anyone really say it's better than Bama's? And there's no doubt that Bama's offense is better.

    Find out the reason Oregon played Arkansas St. first. There's a little story behind that...


    I love how the first year that Oregon doesn't have a ridiculous OOC schedule, that's the only sticking point for the opposition of their rankings. On top of that, acting like the Pac12 has suddenly turned into the Mountain West and holding that against the Ducks as well. It's arguable that the Pac12 is the 2nd best conference in the NCAA this year (right there with the Big 12).

    Oregon scheduled Boise St. twice, @Michigan, @Tennessee (scheduled them when they were a 10 win team, they were ****** 3 years later when they played Oregon), LSU, and Kansas St.

    5 years in a row the Ducks have gone out of their way to beef up their out of conference schedule. 3 of those years (Boise St. x2 and LSU) it bit them in this ***. One of those years it didn't help because Tennessee ended up sucking. And this year Kansas St. backed out of coming to Eugene making it meaningless.

    So why would the Ducks go out of their way to keep beefing up their OOC schedule when it's proven to do them no favors in the past?

    Michigan would be at most the 4th best team in the Pac 12. Counting any win coming against the Big 10 this year isn't helping anyone's argument.

    Actually, the reason why our non-conference was pretty bad is due to Kansas State not agreeing to reschedule our series with them. Sorry ND fans, but you could be number two right now if Kansas State didn't go with the Bill Snyder philosophy on scheduling! In the end, it isn't going to affect us but I would have been really pissed off if Kansas State had gotten a bid over us because of this.

    Don't look now Navy is bowl eligible and looking to finish 8-4. I'm going to start a new thread and just argue Navy vs Ark St. This ND/Oregon thing is getting old

    Well to be fair to Oregon, they only scheduled Tennessee Tech at the last minute when Kansas State dropped out of the scheduled game against them, and they were one of the only teams available on such short notice.

    As for Arkansas State, they are 7-3, won the Sun Belt last year, and have Gus Malzahn as the HC, so they are a strong "mid-major" at the moment.

    If Michigan didn't play Bama this year and Denard didn't get hurt they would probably be ranked in the top 10-15 like everybody else who hasn't really beaten anybody this year.

    I've been thinking about this a lot. I wish more people in the media were talking about it.

    I was more bringing up Ark St and Tenn Tech because I keep hearing people criticize Oregon for playing Cal or Colorado, but they don't really have much of a choice with conference opponents. I knew about KSU dropping out but wasn't sure who they scheduled in place of it. ND had to schedule Western Michigan a few years ago when their previous AD butchered the scheduling. Sometimes you don't have a choice but to play cupcakes.

    Like I said in my above post, what's the point of going out of your way to schedule tough OOC games anymore? The SEC hasn't been doing it for years, and it seems to work out really well for them. Oregon tried it in previous seasons and they ended up in the same spot they did without the help of a tough OOC this year.

    So why would the Ducks go out of their way to keep beefing up their OOC schedule when it's proven to do them no favors in the past?
    This is why I'm in favor of a playoff that uses a ranking system that heavily factors strength of schedule. Because you're right there really isn't much of an incentive. But say Oregon played and won against LSU or KSU for that matter but slipped up against SC. They would still be ranked ridiculously high in the computers because of the OCC win and make the playoff. Maybe teams wouldn't go out and schedule Bama and LSU but I think we would see a lot more cross conference action between the power conferences, instead do FBS no name blowouts in September.

    Based on styles, I'd be fine with K-State vs either one.*

    But based on the ongoing pissing match between Oregon fans and ND fans, I prefer those two.


    * = All bets are off if any 2 of them lose and UGA beats Bama. Then I become an unapologetic homer.
