    Not a UT sucks fan but it was good to see them play at that level. They seemed to play with more intensity as the game went on - that intensity cost them big time on the last GA drive.

    Also nice to see that longhorn go after the puppy dog. Seemed like an omen.

    You don't pick a fight with a steer wearing a red dress.

    Sad thing is the NCAA Nazis will probably give it serious consideration. They have a history of bending over for a very vocal minority as we've seen with the team mascots related to Native American/Indians. And this inspite of some of those very same Indian Nations and Tribes suggesting they had absolutley no issue with a school having a mascot named after them or polling showing the majority of Native Americans have no issue with Indian related mascots anywhere. But it didn't matter to the NCAA or the rest of the Social Justice warriors. Well.... Unless you are a Florida State and you are big time revenue generator for the NCAA.

    Unless someone is physically injured, I don't think the NCAA will bat an eye.

    Well, you know, some teams get their little feelers all-butt hurt sometimes...

    Horns only go up as Big 12 says Sooners can't throw them down

    Most UT fans thought it was stupid and unneccesary for the Big 12 office to step in. Really I've seen it used more for motivation during a game to get their heads out of an orfice in the same game or to go into their house next year and donkey stomp them.

    With Murray gone I expect a long over due beat down coming to the Sooners. Their defense is atrocious, almost as bad as Tech's.

    Hey Techster....guess ND wasn't so bad after all. Based on your logic, they are the #2 team in the nation. They lost to Clemson by 27. Bama lost by 28. Hmmmmmmm.

    And AngeloFan, based on your logic, guess LSC players are as good as Alabama's also.

    LMAO!!!!

    Still, disagree. Great night for Clemson no doubt. QB was difference maker. But, I’d take any bet that this NotreDame team could not have won the ACC Big 10 SEC or Big 12 and probably not even a top ten team.

    Like I said MAN UP join a conference and earn your way in. Otherwise play bowl games not affiliated with the college playoffs.

    The transitive property has no proof in college football analysis. It only has a proof in mathematics.

    Really??????

    Transitive property inequalities can argue different.

    IF a>b and a>c and c<b then b>c. Lol. Too easy.

    This would be unsound if you were saying b would beat c in a contest. But forcranking purposes it IS sound. Point differential is used all the time.

    The point WAS and IS....that some magoos stated ND was so bad and didn't deserved a playoff invite and used Clemson's waxing of ND as,an example why. Using THAT logic, Bama didn't deserve a playoff invite either.

    Gotta drink your drink if you are gonna make it.

    Pops, its ok if that is your favorite team and you dream ND is actually a contender. I am sure NO ONE outside of Notre Dame thought as they watched the game they should be in the playoffs. One question what conference could they have won that would have made them a legitimate contender? Hmmmm how bout NONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    There is a reason they have been an also ran for years. Like I stated, MAN UP JOIN A CONFERENCE AND EARN YOUR SPOT. They were a weak sister that Florida LSU Georgia or Ohio State would have disposed of. Maybe that green IRISH beer has clouded your thought process. hahahahahah

    I don't think Pops is saying they belonged in the POs, just that Clemson waxing ND shouldn't be used as the sole reason to prove whether or not they belonged. The point he's making is Clemson ROLLED Bama therefore, they shouldn't have been in the POs either if we use the same logic. The Clemson defense was brutal and seemed to match really well with 'Bama's ego of "we're going for it 4th down 'cause we're Bama, dammit".

    Yes, they should not have used Clemson's waxing as the one example. One could say it was their past choke jobs in teh finals against Bama, or the myriad of other bowl losses on the big stage (In the last two decades, it’s been smacked twice by Ohio State in the Fiesta Bowl (2005, ’15), pummeled by LSU in the Sugar Bowl (’06) and blown out by Oregon State in the Fiesta Bowl (’00), to name a few.) Or their weak schedule this past year.

    But again, the transitive property has not been proven to be accurate in college football. No proff exists.

    Transitive Property of Equality. The following property: If a = b and b = c, then a = c. One of the equivalence properties of equality. Note: This is a property of equality and inequalities.

    If any instance that a is not = c exists for this scenario,it is not proven.

    You can reply with your normal YABBA DABBO DOO, BLAH BLAH SEMPER FI HELL YEAH, but it doesn't change this fact.

    I initially stated by virtue of ND not being in a conference and having played such a weak schedule that they should not have been invited. To argue they should’ve because they were 12-0 means nothing if you played a weak schedule. BYU & CFla were also undefeated but were not invited and they are probably in the same level as ND. I simply stated Clemson would expose them which they did. But, so could have Oklahoma or a number of other battled tested conference schools.

    I would love to see what beat down Alabama would give to them also. ND is not in the same conversation as really good programs. Plain and simple. They did not belong and you left out a deserving Ohio State.

    The point is and was this was not even a top ten team could not have won a conference and therefore had no business competing for a National title.
