    agreed, but they always worry me because its a rivalry game. i have no doubt ND is the better team, its a matter if they want it more and prove it

    Maybe, but I still might pick them over Michigan on a neutral field.
    agree to disagree there. that still doesn't change the fact that USC is oregons best win, while michigan is at best NDs third best win. ND going undefeated will only hurt USC as well ebcause thats another lost to their total

    im not punishing oregon, im calling it what it is. a ****** non-bcs almost unloseable game. its vastly inferior to any game on NDs scheudle by a long shot. no way should any team be rewarded for that either, since compared to oregon, that team is a joke.
    Almost every single FBS team now plays an FCS team, but for those in the Pac 12, B1G, SEC, and ACC they still have to play a conference title game at the end. It more than evens out.

    almost is not all and ND is not part of that almost. That should reflect in the BCS standings. that alone should have ND over one of oreogn and KSU. they dont play a tune up game

    Seriously? Oregon still plays Stanford and Oregon State which will likely mean by the end of the season their SOS will surpass Notre Dame's....and that doesn't even count the Pac 12 title game against either UCLA or USC. As of this week Notre Dame SOS is 28, Oregon is 45.

    see again, thos ewould be the only good teams that Oregon faced. Combine that witht he fact that ND played and beta one of those teams and beat a tema better than the other and will hurt oregons SOS if they beat USC and again the fatc that Oregon had a gimme win agaisnt a 1 AA while ND did not, ND should still be on top

    You really don't understand how SOS works at all do you? Take a look at where both Stanford and Oregon State are currently ranked. USC may not even be ranked after they lose to UCLA this week!

    USC is Oregons big win, not NDs so i fail to see you point. The fact that Oreogns biggest win might be unranked soon proves my point exactly that roegon hasn't played anyone. Stanford and oklhoma (who will liekly finish as a top 10 team) are more impressive wins then stanford and oregon state. throw in USC and michigan comapred to USC and Oreogns 4th bets win, ND still wins.

    Are you under the impression that Strength of Schedule is the end all/be all when it comes to ranking teams?

    Ask a simple question: What team do you think is better, Oregon or Notre Dame? Most would answer Oregon.

    Strength of Schedule isn't the only way to judge teams.

    No argument from me, I agree.

    But as long as they have Lee and Woods, USC has at least a puncher's chance against anyone in the country.

    How do you propose every school in FBS go about scheduling without FCS schools? You know how impossible that would be to coordinate.... Imagine having a 120-team league broken down in conferences and all them only being able to play each other once and having to sit down and create those schedules.

    Notre dame doesnt seem to have a problem having a 12 game scheudle without a 1 AA. You want to scheudle one, thats fine, but teams that dont should be rewarded for it

    i dont know which is better. I do know, however, that ND has the better resume

    Notre Dame doesn't play a conference championship game after they play those 12 games, that is why Notre Dame cannot afford to play FCS schools!
