College Football 2011: Would Notre Dame, Could Notre Dame Win It All?

This is quite premature. It's May. There is a lockout in the NFL. I'm boycotting the NBA. We're still two months away from training camps opening. Baseball is just getting started. There simply isn't a lot going on.

College football is the beast that never sleeps these days. Recruiting is a 12-month-a-year endeavor, and there are endless polls, draft projections, bowl projections and coaches doing stupid things this time of year.

A few years ago I'd be gearing up for another big NFL Europe matchup between the Scottish Claymores and the Amsterdam Admirals (I defy most of you to name two NFL Europe teams...yeah...I'm that football nuts). However, being that the Arena Football League is the only football going at the moment, why not take a look at the Irish, their schedule and wonder "what if?"

Most are talking nine or 10 wins...and those are the haters. This team has promise and promises to be good. Defense is back, so is Michael Floyd and the Irish should be better in each phase of the game.

So why not ask the question:

Could they win it all?

(Sorry about the title—I've been reading Dr. Seuss to my daughter a little too often lately.)
