Default Bad news for Notre Dame

It probably won't matter against FSU

Too bad it doesnt spell defeat for ND this week. Unless something has happened with FSU's oline, ND's defense can probably score enough points to win.

Too bad they are not playing Cuse with Book out but Id imagine of there is any trouble with FSU and there wont be, Book would trot out there late in the game if needed. They know they dont get in with a loss.

Some of us battle with what's best for the CFP vs pure hate of ND. In the end, to be the best, you have to beat the best, which I think we can, so I would love to see ND get smoked.

Lol...I get it.

However, the optics of beating an undefeated ND are great. I still have doubts they make it, but I hope they do.

I don't get people wanting ND to lose just bc you don't like them. I want to face ND and beat their socks off.

I want them to win out because I donít want two SEC teams to get in the playoff.

This. I feel confident we can beat anyone (slightly less so Bama right now) but I wouldnít mind an easy game in the first round of the playoff. ND is that. As much as I donít like them, I hope ND wins out and gets the 3rd seed.

As a Clemson fan, if all things remain as they are, I'd love to play ND and beat them badly because I don't like them and I'd love to expose them. I'm not sure if ND winning out guarantees that, but if ND loses we won't play them.

Ive gone back an forth between playing a soft team, getting the win and then getting a whole new class of team next vs gearing up for a tough team by playing someone tough before them. I'm not sure if that really makes a difference.

This might cause ND more trouble than people think. ND struggled with Ball State when Winbush was the QB and Ball State doesn't have anywhere near the rush defense FSU has. Blackman started for FSU last week and threw for over 400 yds, if he starts again ND might have their hands full.
