Now that LSU has finished pummelling Notre Dame, maybe the football world will wake up and realize what I've known for years--Notre Dame is overrated. Every time they had a big game this year, they got hammered (Michigan, USC, LSU). Add to it the fact that they can't a bowl game and you've got one of the more overrated teams out there. The only other team that can come as close to living off their past glories is Alabama.
That said, I think they need to drop Notre Dame's exemptions to be an automatic BCS bowl bid. The Irish have shown nothing on the field to merit it and it only keeps a more deserving team out of the BCS mix.
Sorry Irish fans--your glory days are long behind you. And from what I see, they ain't comin' back any time soon.
