Oregon

Stanford
Kansas State
Notre Dame

Yeah, Stanford definitely should jump Notre Dame after they lost to them, and beat the powerhouse 5 loss team from the big 10, keep patting yourself on the back for that big win....

the truth is you, Stanford lost fair and square, his forward progress was stopped, and even if he had gotten in, it would have only tied the game....your team lost to the team that just got beat by 28 pts. by Alabama oversigning Crimson Tide, and Stanford would have faired no better, until Stanford and Notre Dame improves their depth and athleticism it will continue to be more of the same in the BCS title games against the SEC...

Re: Notre Fraud - missed calls got them into the NC title game 


Had it only been the bad call in the end, it would have been one thing.  Those things happen.

But Notre Dame benefitted from a bogus pass interference call and a bogus roughing the passer call on their final drive, without which Stanford would have won in regulation.  Then there was the fact that Stanford got in twice (on both second and fourth down) and the fact that Te'o got away with a BLATANT personal foul that was uncalled on third down (which means Stanford should have had a fresh set of downs).  And I won't even get into the whistle from the stands.  And with all that, Stanford took them to overtime, in South Bend.

Whatever... the Domers were embarrassed and exposed.  We won the Rose Bowl.  Karma is a *****.

Re: Notre Fraud - missed calls got them into the NC title game 


If that were the only call I would agree.  But there were a half-dozen blatantly blown calls in the 4th qtr and OT.

But this is what happens when you play in South Bend - it's 11 vs. 13.  Fans get away with blowing whistles and officials wear leprechaun hats and blue & gold stripes.

We know we're better than they are, and next year in our house we'll prove it.  I hope Shaw runs up the score on the Golden Gomers.

You truly think that the PAC 12 refs gave notre dame all the calls...so zero calls went Stanford's way through the course of 4 quarters, if you all truly believe that, you're as delusional as ur coach... how many BCS championship games has Stanford played in?...

Re: Notre Fraud - missed calls got them into the NC title game 


If there were, surely you could name a blatant call that went Stanford's way.  I was able to name five of them just off the top of my head, and provide video evidence of one of them.  Te'o taking a swing at Taylor and then grabbing his face mask was disgusting, and that isn't even questionable.

EDIT: One last comment... we still lost to UW, and cannot pin that loss on the officials.  I don't know if an 11-1 Stanford team makes it to the NCG despite wins at Oregon and (in the alternate universe where officials get the call right) at Notre Dame.  I'm at peace with how things turned out, and delighted that we won the Rose Bowl (which I was able to attend).  OTOH, ND was exposed as frauds.  They'd have been better off playing K State in the Fiesta, where at least they might not have been embarrassed.

The replay officials were from the Big least and please answer me how many BCS games ND has played in?  What is the record for ND in those games??

Yeah, I agree the ND-leaning Ref blew the call at the end of the game but lets say stanfurd had scored and made the PAT the score would have simply been tied so still anyone still could have won the game......

Listen, I could go on and on about games that numerous calls have went against us, but the truth is no matter how many calls went against us, you will still try to cling to the hope that the officials cost Stanford the game, even though you were outplayed by a better team, out gained in total yardage, and if we hadn't of gave you all a TD and fumbled away another score we win by 14 pts, listen keep clinging to ur false hope, and we'll see what happens next year...oh yeah great win against a 5 loss Wisconsin team...

Re: Notre Fraud - missed calls got them into the NC title game 


You're right the big east were in the replay booth, the officials of a conference that notre dame bolted from and never was a part of in football, yeah they love us, but the fact remains that ur conference refs made the calls on the field that ur crying over...u didn't answer my question of how many BCS title games Stanford has played in but I'll answer yours...we are 0-4 in BCS games, blown out in 3 out if the 4, but in our defense, in 3 of the 4 games we were playing a top 3 team....

DIDN'T SAY THAT STANFORD DIDN'T GET ANY CALLS.  I SAID THERE WERE A HALF-DOZEN BLOWN CALLS ON ND'S GAME-TYING DRIVE AND IN OT THAT HANDED THEM THE GAME.  AND JUST BECAUSE THE REFS WERE FROM THE PAC-12 DOESN'T MEAN THEY WILL NATURALLY FAVOR STANFORD.  MAYBE THEY WERE CLOSET CAL OR OREGON FANS, THEY AREN'T EXACTLY FOND OF OUR BOYS.

OH, AND HOW MANY BCS BOWL GAMES HAS ND WON?  YEAH, THAT'S WHAT I THOUGHT.  NOW GO SIT DOWN.

Yeah... I'm sure you could go on and on about the calls that went against you, though you haven't.  Whatever.  As I said, I've made peace with the situation.  Had the refs called it right, aside from the satisfaction of beating the punks from Notre Dame, our season wouldn't have ended any differently; we still go to the Rose Bowl on account of our loss to Washington.  And I am perfectly satisfied with how our season turned out.  And had the refs called it right, Notre Dame winds up going to the Fiesta Bowl instead of the National Championship, and I miss out on the chance to watch Notre Dame face plant on the greatest stage.  Ain't karma a *****.

Re: Notre Fraud - missed calls got them into the NC title game 


We have played in four BCS games off of the top of my head.  Unlike your team, we are 2-2, w/one of the losses coming in OT and the other being a one possession affair.

I'll take our performance in those contests any day of the week!  ND gets overhyped so please spare me in regard to playing a top three team.

We used to go back and forth in the old days, but I'll indulge you for a bit...ND should have never been in position to make the tying field goal.  A phantom PI call and an absolutely horrendous NON HELMET to helmet personal foul were the reason they gained enough yardage in regulation to make the kick.

Re: Notre Fraud - missed calls got them into the NC title game 


And once again, you still didn't have enoough backbone to answer the actual question, how many bcs championship games has Stanford played in???.... the answer is zero!!!

So until then, you all can enjoy your big wins over a 5 loss Wisconsin team in the Rose Bowl, and your other big win against the ACC champ Chokies in the Orange Bowl, a team that had lost to the powerhouse Boise State, and that big time FCS school James Madison, so keep crowing, look forward to blasting your team at your house....or should I say our house since there will likely be more Irish fans in the stadium than Cardinal fans....

Re: Notre Fraud - missed calls got them into the NC title game 


You're right, we haven't won any BCS games, but how many BCS championship games has Stanford even played in????....that's what I thought...ZERO!!!(I can caps lock as well)....

Also take a look at the difference in competition between Stanford's opponents in BCS games and Notre Dame's opponents....

Stick your chest out and keep patting yourself on the back, for beating an unranked 5 loss Wisconsin team in the Rose Bowl, and your other big BCS win came against a Virginia Tech team that lost to Boise State and James Madison, and finished outside of the top 15, two really big wins...congrats....

Stanford has played in one BCS game against a team in the top 5 and lost to Oklahoma State....

Notre Dame has played in 4 BCS games, and each time the team it has been against a top 5 team, and I am most definitely not crowing or bragging that we just made it to the games, however, I think it is interesting to see Stanford fans to be crowing over their big BCS game wins over some pretty weak competition, and trashing Notre Dame for losing to an Alabama team that would have done the same to them and was a huge favorite in the game....

Hey pal,

Go back to your institution that murders volunteer cameramen, covers up a rape with the victim so traumatized that she kills herself and lets a coach bully his kids on the sidelines.

You come from a classless university, albeit one that used to be fantastic.

Re: Notre Fraud - missed calls got them into the NC title game 


Wow, speaking of classless, might want to re-read your post and check the facts....

Facts seem to really rub you the wrong way, since I pointed them out....sorry that it hurt your feelings, but the title of the post is "Notre Fraud - missed calls got them into the NC title game."  seemed like an invitation to Notre Dame fans to debate with the posters on this board, it is an open forum isn't it???....

Another fact is that Stanford has improved greatly since about 2008, and the reason I came onto your team's board is because Stanford has actually gained the respect of the college football world recently, and I wanted to see what your fans thoughts were of us getting waxed by Bama, one of the more miserable games I have had to watch as a fan...But when I began to read, it just seemed strange that a Pac 12 team that lost to Notre Dame would be so excited to see an SEC team coached by Nick Saban - Alabama crush them, what does that say about Stanford, do you really think the Cardinal would have had a chance against Alabama with 40 days to get ready?...

I assumed that Stanford fans were capable of debating the facts, but I guess not all can handle the truth....

Maybe next year you all can get handled again by Notre Dame, but still make it to the Rose Bowl, and play another weak team, so you can crow some more, but until then, you keep dreaming if you think you will do much more than that....

Re: Notre Fraud - missed calls got them into the NC title game 


You're a quack. Seriously? What goes on in your dome? The fact is Stanford lost in Overtime by three points. Let's run through Notre Dame's 4 BCS losses.

2001 Fiesta Bowl: Oregon State 41 Notre Dame 9

2006 Fiesta Bowl: Ohio State 34 Notre Dame 20

2007 Sugar Bowl LSU 41 Notre Dame 14

2013 BCS Title Game Alabama 42 Notre Dame 14

Every single time you guys have played in a big game, you've been crushed. Best win a big game before you truly start talking. Also, you still haven't given us any horrid calls going against you in the Stanford game.

I bet Stanford would give Alabama a way better game than Notre Dame did...
