Nd kind of lost to Georgia...
Surprised we are still in the top 25 and Texas A&M isn't.
Iowa State keeps you there.
Sooner or later, it always becomes impossible -- if not absurd -- to rank one team behind another just because they played each other. Makes more sense to compare résumés. ND's sole loss was by 6 on the road versus a top 10 team. UGA's sole loss was at home versus an unranked team down to their third-string quarterback. UGA doesn't deserve to be ranked ahead of ND.
And Nd probably should’ve won that game. Still a little weird to be ranked ahead of a team that just beat nd
South Carolina beat a top 3 team on the road with a third string QB so we get to be king for a day
What is ND's best win? UGA's is a top 10 team.
I don’t really see how you can vote for anyone other than LSU at number 1 this week, but whatever.
i agree w your first statement. However, we’re not there w ND and UGA. They have the same record, and UGA won the H2H. It would be different if ND has some top 15 wins perhaps, but they don’t.
True, who knows what Nd would do against South Carolina. Probably a win but Nd is not a juggernaut either
Bama-LSU and Wiscy-OSU are going to be so awesome. Great year for football.
WE DID IT
top 20 team in America
What is UGA's worst loss? ND's is a top 10 team.
UGA's home loss to an unranked .500 team down to their third-string quarterback is more bad than their 6-point home win versus a top 10 team is good.
Yeah, it’s an endless discussion....especially with dblplay1212
South Carolina should not be ranked below Georgia because South Carolina won the head-to-head.
You’re making a lot of great points
ND should have probably won what game? UGA?
Yes, ton of stupid penalties. But I won’t fight you on it. Just my opinion
Did you watch the game?
I did. The better team that night won the game. I certainly didn’t think “man the wrong team won this game”.
Could’ve gone either way I guess.
We lost the 1993 title to a team we beat head to head because of a home loss on a game ending field goal to a mediocre, second-tier rival so UGA can deal with being ranked lower than ND in this weeks version of a completely meaningless poll.
Why I brought that up, but that is spot on
If UGA wins out, they’re in the playoff.
If ND wins out, they’re playing in a NY6 game (unless absolute shenanigans happen).
I’d rather be in UGAs position.
Georgia lost to Sc too. We should be above Notre Dame IMO
You beat Georgia with more ease than bama last year, you guys should probably move up to the nfl
We should be ranked above the Dolphins at least
UGA beat ND. They both have 1 loss. UGA > ND.
Except you lost to UNC who lost to Clemson... So UNC should be ranked around like, 6.
Keep winning but keep dropping
Nah. I like my way better.
The #LSU Tigers have proven that they deserve to be #1 at this point in time. It's not even a question.
This is always the problem with early polls and the best loss theory. There comes a point where either a team gets credit for a quality loss and the quality win team loses, or it gets to a point where it can't matter anymore. ND hasn't met either of those criteria, but Georgia needs to drop for their loss and teams are never punished for other teams losing.
I would have Georgia above ND, but by the same token Georgia needs to get penalized for losing to a bad team.
ND's loss doesn't look as good now. Drop them both.
Yea, LSU should absolutely be #1 but that situation will sort itself out soon enough, I suppose.
Vegas had Bama as a 12.5 point favorite before this weekend. Obviously that means nothing and it'll probably be closer now but it's not crazy for someone to have Bama #1 if they feel Bama is the better team and will beat LSU.
When has that ever happened?
Probably never but it makes sense. ND's best game this year was a close loss to UGA who just lost to SCar.
Not sure if they could do that. ND faced a much louder and more hostile crowd than SC did. Just pointing out their loss was in a tougher environment than SC's win.
How could you justify being ahead of LSU?
He knows this is a stupid argument, but he's on his hill. This happens every week but it's odd he's hunkered down now.
Im not. Im talking about Bama
Saying that ND's claim to fame this year, playing UGA close, doesn't look as good now is a stupid argument?
"ND played elite UGA close!"
"UGA lost to USCe, maybe they aren't that great."
Idk where UGA and ND should be ranked but UGA should be ranked ahead of ND as of now.
What would be your opinion if Nd was in the sec and scheduled to play bama later this year?
So if Georgia wins out and wins the SEC, do you retroactively shoot ND back up? This is a dumb argument and you know it.
If they beat Bama, move them up.
UGA isn't scheduled to play Bama btw.
It's dumb to have a team ranked ahead of a team they beat when they both have the same record and the team that lost the H2H doesn't have a great win on their resume?
How about beating osu head to head, winning the division and the big 10, and having osu go to the playoffs over you
