Does anyone else feel like Notre Dame and Clemson are getting a bye. There are playing what should have been the ACC Championship. I realize the Irish aren't full members but why should they get a pass? Clemson on the other hand did play an extra game but against a much weaker opponent. Its as if the ACC has 2 teams in the playoff and unfairly so.

I like Dabo and hope Clemson smokes Notre Dame. I have a feeling that the Domers may keep it close for a while. Clemson's athleticism probably allows them to pull away in the second half. We shall see.

I'm not predicting it but I wouldn't be surprised if ND beats Clemson.
I am predicting it. Notre Dame beats clempson. The Irish win it off a last minute interception. Dabo complains that the DB did not let his receiver catch the ball because he doesn't understand football and rules.

Well, the early games were terrible. Maybe this one will be more competitive.

Should we be pulling for either of these teams? I'm at a loss, myself.
I am not pulling for either team. I am hoping clempson loses, if that makes sense.

Lawrence even being allowed there makes me dislike Dabo even more. When an Alabama player breaks a rule, Saban sends them home. Dabo doesn't.

I still believe this game will be close. I picked the Irish to win, but I am not confident in that pick.

I think ND will put up a good fight and make it a game. I hope so. I don't want Clemson running away with it, but I feel yucky if I pull for ND.

Part of me wants this game to go to 12 overtimes so the winner is exhausted. Then I remember our game is next and I want our game to start on time and not on ESPNNews.

I have a feeling ND will play well. Good enough to win I'm not sure. If Bama beats Oklahoma tonight I would prefer ND as our next opponent.
