Schad tweets, "In the last 11 years, only seven FBS defenses have allowed fewer points per game than the Irish are currently allowing." He fails to mention that ND and Bama have given up the same number of points per game this season, 11.1. Media sure does want ND in BCS game.
So much so that the writers of the AP poll (or the media) continuing to vote them last of the 0 loss teams
Maybe that is because they are the worst of the 0 loss teams? Doesn't change the fact that much more revenue would be generated by a game featuring ND than say, K-state?
Just like they've done all year, the national media is ignoring the horrible opponents ND is facing.
Average rank of ND's opponent's scoring offense this year: 70th.
Number of top 50 offenses faced: 1
There is Bama fatigue across the country and many want the Irish to win the championship. They are tired of us and our process, but guess what ladies and gentlemen? The Tide Shall Rise!!
I don't buy the media hyping Dame....most legit followers admit Dame is still a year away.
It has nothing to do with us specifically IMO. The nation has SEC fatigue and is ready for someone else to be in the game.
God, give me patience today. If given strength I may beat someone to death.
From their standpoint, I would think that K State and ND give them the most story lines.

Saw the tweet. He also tweeted out another fact or two about ND today.
My guess is this...he got ND's game notes for this week and sent out a couple of interesting bullet points he read. Or maybe he got a package of ND stuff from ESPN stats people. Either way, I don't think he is pushing a bias. If someone gave him the info that 'ND and BAMA are allowing..." he would have tweeted that out.
Seems like that is his style on their. He just tweets out facts he finds interesting. It's not always a biased point against who he DIDN'T mention.
That's my take anyways....
not really the whole story but i guess it helps our argument, lol. what's the combined record of the schedules? rank at time of game against opponents? seems like there are a lot better ways to look at strength of schedule than to look at the rank of the offense
i hope its Notre Dame and Bama
