Saw a lot of stuff on Twitter last night about how ND would be the 7th or so best team in the SEC. I was wondering myself, so let’s see:
Alabama: Clearly a loss
Florida: Loss (but due to Florida’s poor offense, it would be close)
South Carolina: Loss
Texas A&M: Loss
Vanderbilt: Close, but probable win.
Ole Miss: Win
Mississippi State: Win
So, there you have it. Notre Dame would be the 7th best team in the SEC. But just wait. Imagine if Oregon had played Notre Dame? With that speed, the Ducks might could have hung 60. What if Florida State and Clemson had played the Irish? Well, it might would have been close, depending on which of those teams decided to play. But make no mistake about it, both Clemson and FSU would have run right past Manti Te’o.
To paraphrase from Django Unchained. I would say Auf Wiedersehen, but that literally translates until I see you again. Since I hope to never see you again, I will simply say goodbye.
Goodbye, Notre Dame.
