Uh - oh, looks like Notre Dame is laying the groundwork...

...to soften its schedule.  Let's hope this does not effect the upcoming games with the Irish.

I thought that is why they scheduled us - to soften their schedule LOL

That's weak. Basically saying we need an easier schedule to be relevant so that's what we're going to do.

After the 15 million buy out, we need every dime to stay afloat.

Good to see ND is on a quest to be exposed again like they were when they played Bama in the 2013 NC game. Set up an easy schedule and they’ll never make it to the NC game. They’ll look like OSU did last year in their semifinal game.

I hate Notre Dame. With a passion. I hate they think they’re too good to be in a conference and always think they’re never given a fair shake. They could solve all their delusional problems on wether they get what they “deserve” if they’d just drop the independent label and join a conference.

Should you be allowed to go to the play-offs if you are not in a conference?

Yep. If we want to build this thing up we need to increase our total number of wins. Much easier with 4-0 in the non-con

Thought the same thing when i saw the date.

Crap deal to agree in a 5 year gap in games.

Isn't that the excuse for the SEC and FCS schools?  We play so many tough games, we have to play rent a wins?

That would suck. Part of the reson i have been excited about my season tickets is the chance to get tickets to the game in south bend.

An easier schedule is a better way to get to the playoff. If Ohio St had not played OU this year, and scheduled a cupcake instead, they would be in the playoff.

I'll be surprised if we get any game with them.  I don't know why historic powers always bail on us, but just that they do, and that's only if we can get them on the schedule in the first place.  I honestly thought I'd never see Arkansas play Notre Dame in my lifetime and that held true for 40 years.

If they joined a conference, they'd have some creampuffs to go with traditional powers.
