    ND should be #3 after today...maybe #4. KState could stumble against OkSt or Texas. Oregon has to play 3 Top 20 teams, two away from home. Bama has to play at LSU next week. Everybody else already has at least one loss.

    That win was huge for the Irish, make no mistake about that.
    That's the exact wrong attitude, the wins means nothing except that its a win. You can't catch yourself looking at the polls, rankings, or future schedules. Just another win and we have a new game in 6 days. That's it.

    I honestly could care less about who thinks ND was/is legit or not, that's the very least thing I would ever care about as a fan of any team.
    COMING SOON...

    Oh, I agree 100% on the one game at a time thingie, but don't underestimate how valuable this specific win is. It keeps them in the hunt. A loss, and they could probably put a fork in any title hopes for this year.

    Long you live and high you fly And smiles you'll give and tears you'll cry And all you touch and all you see Is all your life will ever be.

    In all honesty, this isn't a team that is ready for the NC game. This win/experience was bigger for individual players (Nix, Golston, Brown, Daniels, etc.) as well as this coaching staff than I feel like it matters for the season. At this point the season is a huge success from my eyes even if they lose 1, 2, or 3 games.

    As expected ND jumps Oregon and is #3 in latest BCS Rankings.

    ND struggling against Pitt. Even if they pull this one out they won't be 3 tomorrow. Should have known it wouldn't last.

    So much for that. It was a good 9 weeks. BCS bowl won't happen now.

    What an incredible game, we definitely deserved to lose but how about the moxy of this young QB? Throws a pick in the red zone and then comes back to lead a game tying drive with a 2pt conversion? Growth, my friends, growth.

    Elite teams find ways to win these games and Notre Dame somehow found a way.

    He's a freshman but he's still dangerous in the open field. Part of the issue is that ND is in Punt Safe more than half the times we get kicked the ball so there is no return set up at all.

    Definitely a gutsy win. Unfortunately you were right... This team isn't ready for the title game. The chances of that happening are all but gone.

    Golson is going to be a good one, and despite a mediocre day from Te'o, I still hope he ends up in Buffalo next year. Dude is a winner.

    He stepped up in the 4th Q and OT. Love him.

    Also nice to Ishaq Williams get some nice pressure and hits on Sunseri late. He's really started to come on in Nickel packages when we kick Tuitt inside.

    Terrible call. Refs kept them in the game.

    The PI call that led to the Jones TD? Agreed it was, but they weren't calling holding for **** on Pitt so it all evened out.

    Johnny Football and the Aggies just did Kansas St, ND, and Oregon a huge favor. Now its up to these three programs to take care of business.

    Holy ****. The SEC contingent is going to wet their pants if they don't get a shot at the NC.

    If there is a recent year when the SEC maybe should not be in the NC, it's this year. Alabama is the best team in the conference and over the last two weeks they look exposed. I believe they will right the ship, sooner rather than later, but the damage is done.

    Steele Devito and Munchie Legaux are my two favorite names (that I've heard) in college football this year.

    Irish running backs need to learn to hold onto the ****ing ball. This is getting annoying.
