    some perspective...

    please dial yourselves back to 1996, a Lou Holtz year.

    http://college-football-results.com/f/ntredame.htm

    2-9 Vandy (2-9 in the prior year)
    3-8 Purdue (4-6-1 in the prior year)
    6-5 Air Force
    9-3 Navy (who still sucked, but had a wonderfully weak schedule)
    5-7 BC
    4-7 Pitt
    2-9 Rutgers
    6-6 USC

    Let's not forget how mediocre the huskies were in the prior few year (7-4, three years running)

    Rose colored glasses are funny things

    If we do this, we'll get criticized. Like that wasn't going to happen anyway.

    Maybe, but not from the guys who put people in the playoffs. Our strength of schedule will be in the Top25...we will be fine.

    People will criticize us for playing any team not in the Top25, so that should never be the worry. Starting the season with a cupcake is perfectly fine, it's been that way for decades. This is nothing new.

    Exactly. The ones who criticize this move by ND hate ND to begin with. ND fans should embrace this as it's still an FBS foe & the only time haters say ND didn't play anyone is after the fact when their pre-season schedule is rated as one of the toughest, but due to some teams underperforming or ND overachieving expectations; it doesn't translate. Just know that as long as you schedule "name brand" programs, you're going to catch some at the right time & some at wrong time. With rare exception, when ND travels to another team's town to play for the first time there's a good chance an attendance record is about to be set.
