Anybody that was paying attention this year knew going into Monday night that Notre Dame was as mediocre as ever. They have, for the most part, mediocre players that get turned into giants by a MSM that loves the Notre Dame mystique. In the end Notre Dame played a great team that was playing with great focus and got exposed for they truly are......a middle of the pack team.

They'll fit right in over in the ACC.
I agree with that, they were an overachieving team that underachieved in mondays game.

But the main issue is that you only have 12-13 games and you don't play everybody so how do you measure up teams? thankfully with the 4 team playoff there's a better chance of getting it right.

Then again, with 5 weeks off who can beat a Nick Saban team with above average players?

No Georgia State fans exist, so that'd be a pretty reasonable assumption.

Best case: 10-2
My pick: 8-4
Worse case: 5-7
Looks like my "best case" prediction for A&M's season was pretty close. What a great year. Final polls have been out a few days. Thoughts?

Yep. Before the season, games vs Florida, vs Arkansas, @ Auburn, @ Mississippi St and vs Missouri all looked like tough-to-call games. Turns out only Florida was close thanks to Sumlin and his coaches, and, of course, the emergence of Johnny Heisman.

A&M really only had a few close games this year: Florida (lost by 3), Ole Miss (won by 3), LSU (lost by 5) and Alabama (won by 5). Every other game was over by halftime, except OU, who managed to stay in the game almost three full quarters.

Notre Dame says Te'o got duped. Uh, not sure how that's possible. You've never met your own girlfriend? The one who you sent roses to after she died? So weird and effed up.

His agent must be sweating bullets right now. Fantastic work by Deadspin.

Errr, reading comprehension say what?

Either way, it's absurd. Te'o was either such a fool that he fell in love with a false identity online or he's a @#%! for exploiting emotional stories for enhanced media coverage to make up for his merely above average skill and play (not superstar status).

First the whoopin' in the NC game, skipping out on Senior Bowl stuff, and now this - his stock is going to tank. Just a matter of how much.

Just when I thought this thread was done for the year, this story comes along. Really bizarre. Amazing that nobody checked up on any part of the story (car accident, funeral) until now. Next thing, Te'o will be interviewed by Oprah where he'll confess to the hoax.

That ND press conference was just ridiculous. He was duped. Yeah, that's the ticket.

He was Catfished!?!?

I've seen the movie and the ensuing TV show, so it certainly happens. But for something that was so talked about by so many different media outlets, how are we just finding out about this now?? Crazy!

And agreed - nice work by Deadspin. Hell of a scoop.
