This commentary from Joshua Vowles on One Foot Down, a Notre Dame football blog, makes these points:

  • The lack of depth on the roster is what cost Notre Dame the game. Injuries, recruiting, and a number of other factors contributed to this problem.
  • Past semi-final playoff games have resulted in a lot of blowouts, so this loss shouldn’t affect Notre Dame’s chances at making it to future playoff games.
  • The arguments that Notre Dame needs to join a conference are baseless. The typical Notre Dame schedule consists of 10 Power 5 teams and all 12 are from the FBS.
