Just to get the facts straight.
Michigan State is 6-6 and unranked....whatever
Michigan is 8-4 and ranked 19th....nothing special
Oklahoma is 11-1 and ranked 11th. Nice win
USC is 7-5 and unranked....no Barkley and weren't even that good anyway.
No teams currently in the top 10 and only two that are even ranked--with one having 4 losses.
I'm sorry, but this is extremely unimpressive.
the best argument they have is a good one though; they beat everyone on their schedule.
My facts are straight. That's what each team was ranked when the Irish beat them. Not their ranking after the season was over. It doesn't really matter though, the Irish are playing for the National Championship and should be.
