With all of this heated debate about Notre Dame's unlikely chances at playing for the National Title if there are at least 3 unbeaten teams, I started wondering about where the Irish would land and who they would play. Honestly, I have been so focused on the BCS Championship, that I haven't thought much about "Plan B."  Needless to say, I have some help here in the form of ESPN and their "experts." Let's take a look at how they have been projecting Notre Dame's bowl chances throughout the season... WEEK MARK SCHLABACH BRAD EDWARDS Preseason Pinstripe / Cincinatti Russell Athletic / Clemson Week 1 Pinstripe / UConn Little Ceasar's / Ohio Week 2 Pinstripe / South Florida Fight Hunger / Arizona St. Week 3 Fiesta / West Virginia Fiesta / Texas Week 4 Fiesta / West Virginia Fiesta / Texas Week 5  Fiesta / Kansas State Fiesta / Texas Week 6 Fiesta / West Virginia Fiesta / West Virginia Week 7 Fiesta / Kansas State Fiesta / Kansas State Week 8 Fiesta / Oklahoma Fiesta / Kansas State Week 9 Fiesta / Kansas State Fiesta / Kansas State Week 10 Fiesta / Kansas State Fiesta / Kansas State Obviously, it is looking more and more like the Irish will return to the Fiesta Bowl if they do not end up in the BCS title game. The comical thing for me has been where the Irish were, in these "experts" eyes prior to the Michigan State game. ****, the BCS guru, Brad Edwards must not know jack and **** since he had ND in the Russell Athletic Bowl (formerly known as Champs Bowl) since ND would not be eligible there for a few more years. At least Schlabach had the Pinstripe Bowl all the way until the Fiesta pick (as the Pinstripe is one of the few destinations for ND and their horrible bowl situation this year). Edwards couldn't make up his mind about what **** bowl was worthy of the Irish until post Sparty.  In the end, I think we can safely say that Notre Dame will end up in the Fiesta Bowl if not the National title game. However, if the Fiesta Bowl invites Oklahoma if Kansas State is in the title game, THAN WE SHOULD JUST ******* BOYCOTT THE THING. It would make zero sense to have a rematch and would do NOTHING for Notre Dame's future in 2013, which is what all these bowl games are really about.  Think about it. If Notre dame would have beat Florida State in the Champs Bowl, they would have most likely started the season ranked AT LEAST in the top 15, and we wouldn't even need this conversation right now.  Oi.
