    Notre Dame is a product of media hype

    of media hype and always - sure, a few good to great teams scattered in there -has been.

    They made their record playing weak teams historically.

    Their Big advantage was having the only and focused support of the Chicago/midwest's press.

    I'm not saying they haven't had some legitimate teams, and certainly they've had some great players over time.

    Over rated historically. jmho

    I agree they are typically overrated. However, I will never forget the losses Bama experienced to them in 1973 and i974 much less the "awarded" NC they received over an undefeated 1966 Bama team.

    It will great to watch Georgia play them this year.

    I am torn on the uga/domer game. On the one hand I hate notre dame, on the other I have to live in georgia and listen to uga fans.

    Might be the first time I've ever rooted for ND.

    I will never ever root FOR the golden domer arrogance fueled team and fan base. Doesn't mean I'll necessarily root for the opponent either.

    I want UGA to win just to go ahead and eliminate ND from the playoffs.

    They will only be in contention for a Playoff spot by being undefeated like last year and 2012.

    UGA otoh can easily afford a non-conference loss to ND and still be a 'Fly in the Ointment'.

    There is no positive effect on us or anyone else for ND to win that game.

    Would rather face Notre Dame in the playoffs than Georgia. So, Notre Dame it is.
    I know what it takes to win. If I can sell them on what it takes to win, then we are not going to lose too many football games. - Coach Paul Bryant and I can see Coach Nick Saban agreeing completely.

    Overrated in 2012 and 2018? Hard to deny based on BCSCG and CFP performance in those years. Historically? Well, I wont argue a traditional power is overrated historically when we have a losing record against them...

    The loudest rooster is usually the first one in the pot. I enjoy pumping up the Bulldog strut. I will later rub the beat down they are sure to receive in with the aw shucks smile. Nothing like jerking a bulldog's chain :-) Disliking Ga and hating the Dummers is a good way to be a BAMA fan.

    I think I rather UGA lose an SEC game than one to ND.

    Overall, I would say that ND has been good for college football. They are steeped in history and anything good for the sport is ok in my book. That said, they represent the history that has not realized itself in the modern era so much regardless of those who would pump them up. That is not to say they will not get a generational coach who will lead them back to glory days but, as it stands, they might as well be relegated to historical context when talking about today's game no matter how many times the media puts them into the playoffs.

    The only time I will want ND to win is if they ever play AuBarn.

    I don't live there, but I would think that the last couple of years it would be a pleasure to live in Georgia. Certainly the few Georgia fans I run into around here (Virginia) seem to avoid eye contact and pass by quietly if I'm wearing any Bama gear. Clempson fans on the other hand
