Say what you will about Notre Dame, but the team finished undefeated while playing the top universities in the country. The Fighting Irish's wins against Michigan, Stanford and Syracuseall top-15 teams at the time of their respective gamesare proof that Notre Dame belongs in the playoff.

People are crying over the lack of a conference championship like it is the end all, be all of determining eligibility. Notre Dame is one of the four top schools in the country. There is no arguing that.

So the Fighting Irish managed to play fewer games and still gain a berth in the College Football Playoff. How? Every other qualified team had one more monumental test just to be considered for the honor, while Notre Dame sat at home enjoying Friday and Saturday like every other schmuck in the country.

Just because Notre Dame is Notre Dame, it gets special consideration. Brand equity shouldn't be a requisite for qualification. The Fighting Irish should've been left out of the bracket.
