    This week almost made me forget about football. Being a Cane fan doesn't help either.

    Maybe but I would guess they are holding off on ND for the FSU game. 25 year anniversary of the 93 game which was the first time game day went on site. If ND and FSU are any good it’s a lock they’ll be at ND that week.

    I did not think about that. Makes a lot of sense. I just think the khaki pants intrigue has and will make that game huge. Also Marquee games are hard to find in week one this year.

    Of course Bubba's was the best, I actually still blast that opening weekend every year, but it's not coming back. While out of context CTYC is awful, it's become so ingrained as a college football institution that just thinking about it, like I am right now, gets the juices flowing, because I know what hearing it means. It'd take years for some other shitty song to evoke that kind of response.

    I look at it like the cheesy theme of a sitcom you love.

    thats a bad example but he has a point. The average college football fan doesnt care about ND half as much as the sports media thinks they do.

    Two of the most rabid fan bases in college with one of the best offenses is a bad example of a matchup people want to see? Well ok then

    I literally said In my second post that Harbaugh was the draw, it’s a massive story and likely the best game of week one.

    I would assume Atlanta for Auburn-Washington. Would rather it be on a beautiful campus though.

    At least they get the two most overhyped/overrated teams out of the way in week 1.

    It's obviously the most intriguing game of the first week. Should they go to a neutral site game between Bama and Lamar Jackson's old team? Or should they go to Washington at Auburn at a neutral site? I get your joke, but come on homey.

    And sadly coming to South Bend is a big deal, they hate promoting games that are not on their networks, which is understandable.

    Most intriguing for you, maybe. I look at both and know that neither of them can contend for the playoff. I look at UW vs AU and think both could. That's a much better and more important game. They are going to South Bend bc of the names involved, not the quality of the teams. That happens a lot with those two programs.

    According to espn fpi nd is favoured in all its games. The route to the playoffs is not unlikely at all. More likely than auburn for sure. Michigan last year with a decent offense couldve also been in. Not saying udub au is irrelevant or anything like it but acting its a bigger game in importance is stretching it. That doesnt even consider that neutral site games blow for gameday

    You've got your SEC lenses on man. ND-Aub would be a push imo. Michigan-Washington as well (I'd lean UM). But environment matters, if they have the choice they should go to a campus game where the fans are within 3 hours of each other. This is a no brainer (and note, again, they do not like coming to ND because they are not promoting their brand).

    UW and AU are both ranked higher than UM or ND. They should go to the best game.
