Notre Dame didn't make the cut. The usual suspects on the Irish schedule did. Here is how they were ranked.
14. Michigan State

The Irish are first on the list of "others receiving votes" with 83 votes.

My luck w/the Irish 20-6...GO IRISH!!!
Perfect spot for ND to start the season. Unranked but just outside the top 25. Now no one can say they are "ranked" too high undeservedly. Win against MSU and Mich and few will question ND being ranked.
Scored 4 touchdowns...in a single game. Polk High!
If we look half decent and beat Navy and Purdue (IF IF) we will jump to about 18-19th in the polls. The polls love to love us and love to hate us. If we are 2-0, they will start "the ND is back theme" to pump up the MSU game. But yes, I like starting at 26.

Just about where we should be. We need to earn being ranked.

This gets me excited, being unranked will put a fire under our guys. This will force them to win games to get respect.
How in the world are the suckeyes even rated being 6 and 7 last year? They shouldn,t even be talked about. They have been showing them on training days on ESPN like they are Gods team.ESPN has got there nose up OSU ass. I can,t stand either one 0f these jerks. The thugs keep making out.
All things considered, couldn't ask for a better spot
Why is it that anyone that doesn't go to ND is a thug?

85, that was not what got from that post. i think it was a legit complaint that an OSU team that looked a day old turd is getting ranked and the fact that the scum that is ESPN is swabbing their taint 24/7
You missed the last sentence out of that post? " The thugs keep making out"
I think he was talking about the dozens of players from O$U who have been arrested or suspended for exchanging memorabilia for tattoos or money - FROM A CONVICTED DRUG DEALER!
Every player at O$U is not a thug, but they have more than their share (still) -- I think they had 7 players arrested over the summer. It is in fact, a disgrace that they are being showcased on espn and given a high pre-season ranking. Based on what? 6-7 record last year? On probation? Not eligible for B10 title, or bowl game? Seriously, how is this justified (and please don't bring up ND here, we don't deserve what the Buckeyes are getting either).
BTW, I bet ND has more returning starters and key players than over half of the teams in the top 25 -- and most of our losses last year were a play or two away from wins. BUT, I LOVE THE FACT THAT WE ARE NOT RANKED!!!
Only impact it has on teams is moving up, but if ND goes undefeated -- I know -- I still think we'll be fine.
