This makes no sense.
And the only team on the schedule that's not in the WAC and sucks enough to possibly not be considered a D1 team is Idaho. They have no control over the SJSU's and SMU's. Fresno State, UTEP, Tulsa, and Hawaii, all fielded decent -> good teams this year. Boise would probably beat ND, as much as I wouldn't want that to happen.

I was waiting for the right time to post this, and now seems as good as any. Just admit that you would LOVE this now and get it over with.
JJD'S PS2 DETERMINES THE NATIONAL CHAMP
(Note: All games were played in the actual weather conditions of that day. Also, I haven't done the quarterfinals yet due to that little Xmas thing.)
(Also, big props to Mrs. JJD for putting up with me.)
ROUND ONE (12/11): #13 Miami 14, #20 North Texas 7 Brock Berlin throws two second-quarter TD passes, andthe Hurricanes' defense shuts down Jamario Thomas and the Sun Belt champs to advance to a date with Texas.
#19 Toledo 25, #14 Tennessee 24 Down 24-6 in hostile Neyland Stadium, Toledo QB Bruce Gradkowski throws three fourth-quarter TD passes, including a 95-yarder with 1:32 reamining, as the MAC champion Rockets pull the upset in Knoxville.
#15 Arizona State 21, #18 Syracuse 7 Sun Devil QB Sam Keller leads ASU to a fairly easy win, with a 62-yard TD pass to freshman TE Zach Miller sealing the victory.
#16 Michigan 31, #17 Texas A&M 3 Chad Henne tossed two first-half TD passes to Braylon Edwards, and Michigan's defense stifled Reggie McNeal and the A&M attack en route to an easy victory in frigid Ann Arbor.
ROUND TWO (12/18): #1 Oklahoma 20, #16 Michigan 7 Adrian Peterson ran for a touchdown and caught another in the Sooners' workmanlike victory over Michigan.
#15 Arizona State 21, #2 USC 17 Sam Keller's third touchdown pass gave Arizona State a 21-17 lead with two minutes remaining, and the ASU defense stopped Heisman Trophy-winner Matt Leinhart on fourth down to give the Sun Devils the bigges upset win of the playoffs.

Jason Campbell's 10-yard touchdown pass with just over a minute to go gave the Tigers the lead, and Auburn's defense held off Toledo's last chance to score a second straight win over an SEC foe.
#4 Texas 24, #13 Miami 17 Down 17-0 and with the Texas fans booing his team off the field at the half, Mack Brown fired up his team during the break, and they were able to storm back and overcome the Hurricanes in the fourth quarter, winning on Vince Young's scrambling TD run with five seconds left.
