Remember when we were all talking about Notre Dame's 2012 schedule as one of the most daunting in recent memory? No? Let me remind you. • The Irish were traveling to the AP preseason Nos. 1 and 4 teams, along with No. 13. • They were hosting Nos. 8 and 21, too, after losing to both three straight seasons in a row. • They were traveling to Dublin for their opener before an off-site game against rival Miami, and they were facing six teams coming off double-digit-win seasons.
