UC 11th with games against #10 Indiana and #15 Notre Dame.

It's a very tall task but if UC comes away after week 4 undefeated they should be in great position for a playoff spot.

Will that game have all ACC officials? If so we may have to swim against the current a bit.

CBS Sports just put UC at #7...followed by LSU for some reason.

That's like hitting every green light on your way home from shopping for groceries when you've got the rumble guts, then proceeding to **** all over yourself in the garage because you dropped your keys in the Kroger parking lot.

We will shove it up NDs a$$ so bad officiating won’t matter. Don’t worry about that!

They will have one of their normal crews. Probably ACC.

Big schools like GA a few years back negotiate their own conference officials do the game in South Bend.

Rest of us will get the Domer version of the refs that traveled with the Globetrotters and Washington generals.

If anyone would like a refresher of how that looks, please re-watch the Tennessee basketball game from this year.

Oh, I expect the refs to shove it in dry in South Bend. Lol

Nothing too blatant...just the occasional borderline PI and late illegal man down field flags on big plays when it helps the home team.

That wasn’t a scheduled home game.

ND looked at UC as a buy game when this was scheduled.

Yeah but this ain’t South Bend in October. Watch for which refs get off the private jets Friday night.

We're tied at 11th with +3000 odds to win next year's CFP Championship along with USC, North Carolina, and LSU: https://www.cbssports.com/college-footba...ll-season/

After seeing us compete in the Peach Bowl and returning a lot of talent, I think Vegas realizes we have a realistic shot to finish our tour of the state of Indiana 2-0, and if we do, we'll have a shot at the CFP. Of course, getting there and winning it are two entirely different things. Still exciting to see things like this though.

McMurphy has always been the worst. The Goodman of college football coverage.

His writeup was basically Sark=Jesus, then sprinkled in that "They return 14 incredible starters, have a new offensive coordinator, and that sure they lose their quarterback who essentially did everything, but they have a guy who threw a few TDs in a game against backups this season." It's actually impressive how willfully open he is about his favoritism.
