Default ESPN focuses on complete ND coverage

I think it will be a long season for them

But look on the bright side, the more they cover ND, the less time they have to cover the yankee's and red sox.

Overrate? Yeah ok between Mark Mar and Maisel the two biggest haters of all time you think they are overrated?

No overrated is when you are the 20th ranked team and you lay an egg like A&M did Thursday.

Considering everyone picked ND to bad this year how does that make them overrated? I think you might want to look the word up in the dictionary.

I disagree with pretty much everything you said.

The fact is, Notre Dame gets pimped every year by the media brain-trust. They have had great pre-season ratings for as long as I remember.

A&M, on the other hand, started off barely on the board, and then got beaten by a good Miami team in Miami. We have never started high in the BCS rankings. We are the polar opposite of overrated. We are just damn-near overlooked.

How about a compromise....Over-COVERED?

I mean certain bowls have exceptions written in to permit only one independent (ND) into their available mix.

Is that the same "good" Miami team that got destroyed in Oklahoma?

Really is that why everyone before the year said that ND might only win 5 games? They were not ranked to start the season, so I am not sure how you can say that. There are a lot of people like Mark May who trash everything there is about ND and this site is a prime example of someone just loving the fact that they get a chance to bash the Irish.

Only if ND wins 9 games. So yes they do have some advantages just like some conferances have the same thing with bowls. You see it every year a bowl will take a 8 win SEC team versus a 10 win PAC team or MAC team.

I will not dispute they are covered more than a lot of schools, but it is like the Yankees you either love them or love to hate them.

Dig deep enough and you can find anyone who bashes a certain team.

Did you ever think that maybe people like to beat Notre Dame because the Irish are always immensely covered, and it is good publicity??

I do not have to dig, just listen to Mark May he is on tv every week. Are the Irish covered anymore than USC? Not at this point.

The whole fake website is geared to bashing Notre Dame so how is that digging?

And they just scored their first touchdown of the season. We're going to be hearing about it all day.

Overcovered is absolutely the correct word here.

Default Re: ESPN focuses on complete ND coverage

no one thought Notre Dame would do anything at all this year.

they're "overcovered" because there are a lot of people who care about Notre Dame out there, and want to know how they do. especially the people who really hate Notre Dame and like to see them losing badly on national television. people think that ESPN shows their games and talks about them non-stop because they like them....not true, they want the ratings, and they know people will watch the highlights to see 14 fumbles and 28 interceptions a game. they love it!

what you want to root for is mediocrity with Notre Dame. if they're too extreme on either side, good or bad, they're going to get the hell covered out of 'em.

Michigan was overrated
Louisville was overrated
Texas was overrated

Aggies ranked 25th coming in to the season after going 9-3 in the regular season last year losing three games by a combined total of 6 points until the holiday bowl with 18 returning starters and their complete o line.

Not Overrated, although they are under playing.

Michigan lost twice.

Louisville lost twice.

Texas is still undefeated. Kinda hard to say a team is overrated until they lose.

How would anyone expect the Longhorns to lose to any of those teams?

If any of those teams would have beaten them, then not only would the Longhorns be overated, they would be an embarrassment.

You're right, Texas was not as overrated as Michigan, or Louisville (By the way Louisville is terrible)

But still overrated
