Not trying to be condescending, but how long have you been a Notre Dame fan? A difficult schedule is as much a tradition as gold helmets.

I do agree with you though (As do many others) that we don't really do ourselves any favors by having a meat grinder of a schedule every year.

I've been a fan since 1988. Challenging is one thing but this is just over the top. 6-6 is a very real possibility here.

It's not like we are Alabama or Ohio State(who I understand are coming on the schedule as well). We just aren't powerful enough for this type of schedule. And even they don't schedule like this.

I think the ‘18 schedule is worse.

The travel in the later part of the year for ‘18 turns games that are already potential traps into legitimate concerning scenarios.

Is it weird that doesn’t strike me as unusually bad?
Yes we go to Michigan and Georgia (and Louisville) and I don’t love the back six weeks without a breather.
But who knows how good Michigan and Louisville will be, and otherwise it’s pretty standard. If we go 6-6 it’s because we’re not very good.

Edit: Aside from the atypical later season road game against Michigan (which kind of replaces a trip to Clemson/FSU/Miami), and the last three games against typically tough physical opponents, that actually sets up OK for us, I think. We have New Mexico before Georgia, Bowling Green before USC, and a bye before Michigan. Breathers before our three biggest games. That’s unusual..

I fell in love with Notre Dame in 1988 as well.

The only comfort I can offer is that prior to the 2012 season, the schedule looked brutal. MichSt on the road, Oklahoma on the road, U$C on the road, scUM, Stanford, Navy on another continent to open the season in addition to the usual pesky opponents like Purdue, Pitt, and BC. Despite this, ND overcame.

Exactly. Almost seems Bamaesque the way it was devised.
