5 Time POTW--Gringo Mafia Director of Guerrilla Warfare
I may not be pretty, but I'm fast.....
POTW 1/31/11 - 2/6/11
The bottom line is Herbstreit and ESPN have been lobbying for the Ducks and Tide matchup all year. They are saying Notre Dame's schedule is not as tough as they thought but refuse to admit that it still remains the toughest of the undefeated teams. Herbstreit also maintained that this Oregon defense was the best under Chip Kelly but I wonder what he will say now after that defense gave up over 50 points to USC. Herbstreit is making the same arguement he made last year which is the eyeball test because he can't win using strength of schedule. He is saying the championship game is beneficial to Oregon this year but he didn't hold it against Alabama last year.
