+ that's not even accounting for the heavy weight which should be placed on the QB position.

+ there are 12 games in a season.

+ USC injected an immense amount of talent through transfers into the equation which makes your comparison inaccurate. USC has the better roster/team.

+ the fact that 5th year borderline NFL draft picks (and some non-NFL players) are among the best ND players proves the point.

+ Every team has a few 5th years that are at least as good as ND's.

ND's talent/roster is top 20-25 this year. They finished ranked #19.
