This is not a vent board or any other kind of therapy. Before you hit the POST button, ask yourself if your contribution will add to the level of discussion going on.
Important notes on articles:
- Please do not copy entire articles into your post; rather, provide links to them.. We are now links-only for ALL Internet publications. If only a small portion of the article pertains to your post, Fair Use allows you to copy those one or two paragraphs, provided you cite the author's name and the publication for which he writes. Otherwise, put a link in the HTTP Link box.
- Even if you're copying a reference to an article, provide a link to the page from which the article came. We're trying to cut down on duplicate topics, and the posting process will check the link to your article to see if it's already being discussed on this board. At the very least, you'll save yourself some grief on the boards.
- If your first reaction after reading the article you're going to share is the author is uninformed / stupid / a jerk / all of the above, it's not worth sharing with anyone. Not every article needs to be discussed. The more the hair-pulling articles are discussed (e.g. ESPN Page 2), the more the authors will write hair-pulling articles.

Remaining potential bumps in the road by cbiebel
These are the opponents I see on the remaining part of the schedule that could cause some trouble for ND:
at Va Tech (1/16): definitely an improved team that took Syracuse into OT. Plus they have a Mabrey, too.
Tennessee (1/24): While not impressed with the coaching, they do have a lot of talent.
FSU (2/10): They're 14-1 and are well coached. They beat Iowa, but their ACC wins to date have been close.
at NC State (2/18): They're the only undefeated team left. Their one good win was Mich. State, but they've basically thumped the ACC teams they've played to date. Plus a road game.
at Syracuse (2/25): They play really tough and it's a road game. Barely lost at Oregon. Their two losses were by 2 points at Oregon and by 4 points at Minnesota. They beat Texas A&M and beat both DePaul and Va Tech in OT.
