    the first one was, yes, and this next one on Saturday will be too. a third one in the semis on new year's day? will not get nearly the ratings the first one did in south bend.

    you are clearly an irish fan. if you don't realize that rematches times three are NOT good for ratings, then you are blinded by your green goggles.

    Ali v. Frazier 3, the thrilla in Manila, the fight of the century? If ND loses in a close game it setups for a perfect round 3.

    muhammad ali vs smokin' joe frazier had storylines between the two fighters and a mystique surrounding the fights that clemson v notre dame simply doesn't have. no one is really a villain here. ali was a villain to many for dodging the vietnam war and joe was seen by many blacks as a tom. he wasn't, but ali put that out there. each fight was like a championship game.

    here you have a reg season meeting, a conf title gm meeting, and then you'd have a meeting in the semifinals of the CFP. no one is unlikable on either team. dabo is awww shucks, trevor is a good kid, brian kelly is belichick-type boring, and ian book is solid but unspectacular. nothing much to see here.

    i understand you're an irish fan but i am telling as much as the sun will rise tomorrow, the CFP committee is going to do everything possible to avoid a clemson v notre dame meeting in the semifinals of the CFP, and if clemson and ohio state both win by DD, it gives them the "clerical coverage" they are looking for.

    Just as I thought. NO ONE in here is going to wager anything but air (if that) on any of these games. You guys are all talk, no action. You are a disgrace and should be banned for calling yourselves gamblers. Not one person willing to stick their necks out in here.

    I liked lackluster usc by 7 or more over Washington and their frosh qb. But now vs ore-gone I'm not feeling usc anymore. Ducks can play, when they want to. Good qb

    Tomorrow night's usc v oregon essentially a meaningless conf title game. USC has no prayer of the top 4 unless multiple highly improbable things happen.

    1. Bama
    2. Clemson
    3. Ohio state
    4. Notre Dame

    Committee got what they needed in Clemson v notre dame to justify dropping ND to the 4 slot to avoid a trilogy in the semis

    If they're 2 and 4 respectively and each win in the semis then that's exactly what we'll get lol

    What are you talking about?

    This thread was opened BEFORE the conf title games. It was a prediction on what the top 4 seeds would like in name and order.

    You're a week late to the party, Sir.
