RE: Go Irish
Even if Notre Dame wins Saturday, if Clemson wins the ACC Championship Game, Clemson will probably still go to the Playoff. They will likely be ranked #3 behind undefeated #1 Alabama and #2 Ohio State but they'll make it. They'll have a convenient excuse. And if Notre Dame can't beat Clemson twice, they better hope no one from the Pac-12 or Cincinnati goes unbeaten. Maybe even an unbeaten BYU gets in over a once beaten Notre Dame whose best win is over a Trevor Lawrence less Clemson). They also have to watch out if a Western Division team upsets Ohio State or either Georgia or Florida upsets Alabama. And all of this assumes Notre Dame wins Saturday which isn't guaranteed. If Notre Dame can't win in South Bend without Trevor, I find it hard to believe they will beat them in Charlotte (arguably a Clemson home game) with Trevor.

I have no expectation of an ND playoff berth.

ND will likely be beaten fairly badly next week, Lawrence or no Lawrence.

If it makes the ACC Championship game, I expect the same result against Clemson.

In my opinion, ND is a top ten team this year, but not a playoff level team.

It is not on the level of Clemson, Alabama and Ohio State.

It sits in the next tier, which ain't a crime. Kelly has done a good job of building a program.

(Anyone recall the later Charlie Weis 7-6 years ?)

The OL, RB, and TE positions are all very good and very deep. The defense is for real.

However, the passing game (QB, WR) is a bit lacking.

Part of that is due to the injury losses of WR's Kevin Austin and Braden Lenzy, ND's two fastest receivers.

Part of the problem is the physical limitations of Ian Book.

(Who is 26-3 as a starter at ND, despite those limitations)

ND has a 5 star freshman WR (Jordan Johnson) sitting on the bench. Kelly hasn't played him because of off the field "transitional" issues.

Highly rated freshman WR Xaiver Watts sits out as well, along with freshman wideout Jay Brunelle.

I am hoping that ND wins the non-Clemson games on its schedule and finishes 10-2.

It better watch out for upsets at BC, NC and Wake.

If it finishes 10-2 and ends up in the Orange Bowl with losses only to Clemson, I will consider it a very good season.

Waitasecond... looking at the title of the thread... so you'd rather pull for a team that Miami won't play this year and isn't a full-time football member of the conference instead of pulling for the team that already beat the Canes but which, if they win, your team might get another shot at in the ACC FCG?

Miami might have a chance against the parasites. He knows they have zero chance against Clemson again.

Clemson ain't falling below #2 seed - his ONLY hope is for Notre Dame to fall so that Miami can jump them. If ND is the #1 seed, Clemson is their opponent - the end. (IDK, maybe he thinks my Hokies are going to hand Clemson their 2nd loss?)

Before the season started, I had: Alabama, Clemson, Florida, Notre Dame

Today, since the B1G started, I have: Alabama, Clemson, Notre Dame, Ohio St

Even knowing the Tigers and Irish would play each other, I think both advance to the CFP.

Ohio State > > > Florida

TBH, the Gators are not in the same league as Clemson, Alabama, or Ohio State.

Whether Notre Dame > Florida or not may be answered Saturday as both are playing very strong competition.

I am illustrating it’s not much of a prediction if you make it halfway through the season and eliminate the team with a loss.

Good chance both teams make the playoff.

From a cold business perspective, it would probably be (financially) great for the ACC if ND wins a close game over Clemson tomorrow. It pushes ND into the limelight. The ND v UNC game could be a ratings bonanza. Clemson would be at the brink for the remainder of the season. It would add a lot potential drama and viewers to the ACC championship game...a likely opportunity for Clemson and Trevor Lawrence to seek revenge.

As a long-time fan of ACC sports, it’s nearly impossible to fathom rooting for the Irish. I believe the freshman with all the vowels is more than capable and the Tigers defense does enough to limit ND scoring.

RE: Go Irish
Clemson with a chip on their shoulder is intimidating.

That D though .... ain't what it used to be. And I know they were missing 3 players off the D yesterday. But in the past, the Clemson subs wouldn't miss a beat in that situation. Again, the Clemson D ain't what it used to be.

ND has pushed themselves right into the driver's seat in the conference race. And are in serious college playoff consideration. I never expected that after the ND - Louisville game.

All this is good for the ACC.

Will ND continue to win? Or will they stumble?

Will Trevor Lawrence lead an inspired Clemson team on a demolition tour the rest of the way? Or will the D let them down again?

Can UNC play spoiler?

Can Miami get there?

Should be a fun conclusion to the season.

The D isn't the problem. By the end of the game we were missing our #1 and #2 DTs, our #3 DE, Our #1 and #2 LB, #2 CB, and both starting safeties.

The problem is and will continue to be the inability of our offensive line to get a push in the running game.
