Here's how the Associated Press Poll voters -- see link below -- voted this week for the Fighting Irish. Here's where the writers are from who didn't vote for Notre Dame in their TOP TEN:
Important to note -- Scott Wolf, (in the photo above with the USC cheerleaders) who voted Notre Dame #13 in his AP Poll (the lowest of all AP Voters) has a USC Football blog: http://www.insidesocal.com/usc/
With just EIGHT teams still undefeated after WEEK SIX of the college football season I thought it was time to release the first ever ND GO IRISH RANKINGS INDEX.
The NDGIRI is based on "strength of schedule" -- wins against FBS competition, wins against POWER FIVE Conferences and if the opponent won ten or more games the prior year. I give each team a point for each. Pretty sophisticated!!! THE NDGIRI FOR COLLEGE FOOTBALL
Notre Dame: 11 points
Florida State: 10 points
Mississippi: 9 points
Mississippi State: 9 points
Auburn: 7 points
Arizona: 7 points
Baylor: 7 points
TCU: 6 points
Now, what tells me that four or five of these teams will be ranked higher than Notre Dame this afternoon when the polls come out...
