Notre Dame Football
Is their a more overrated program in all of college sports? What has Notre Dame done lately? Shoot they haven't won a bowl game in years. Yet we get every game they play stuffed down our throats on prime time TV. And whenever they win 6 or 7 games people act as if they could beat an NFL team. Look I know they have history. But so does Army. At some point you have to produce on the field. Notre Dame has not done that in a very long time. Their recruits are always overrated. They schedule weak opponents. And they have a huge advantage by not having to play in a conference. ..... It bothers me when programs/franchises are able to live off of their pasts. When I see Notre Dame get more coverage then more deserving teams it gets old fast. Now I say this next statement as a Big 10 guy. Imagine if Notre Dame was in the Sec! They couldn't hold a candle to most of the programs in the SEC. If Notre Dame was in the SEC they'd be forced to play tough opponents week after week, while being exposed as a very average football program. The "fighting Irish" should be renamed the "not very physical, not very tough, not really wanting to fight Irish".
