College Football Preseason Rankings 2011: Is This Notre Dame's Year?
After a successful run at the end of the 2010 season, Notre Dame fans are hoping that coach Brian Kelly has the Irish on a return to their former glory.
This is as good of a year as any for the Irish to make a run and a No. 18 ranking puts them in perfect position to make a run.
The schedule is relatively easy and could definitely provide for 10 wins, especially with the talent returning.
19 starters return, including almost the entire offense, and Dayne Crist and Michael Floyd will make up one of the best quarterback-receiver combos in college football. On defense, linebacker Manti Te’o should be one of the best players in the country.
This team doesn’t have enough big-game experience to win a National Championship this season, but a 10-win season is definitely possible, and for Notre Dame, that almost certainly means a BCS berth.
