Lock It in Notre Dame Next Year's National Champs

Notre Dame

"On the one hand, there was Notre Dame. This place has been an incredible home to me and the relationships I built here are ones I know I'll have for the rest of my life. On the other hand, there was the NFL. It has always been a lifelong goal to play football at the highest level, and that is something I look forward to doing at some point. However, I'm pleased to say I will be returning to the University of Notre Dame for my senior season in 2011."
Ok, so maybe I embellished just a hair, but lets be serious Notre Dame is going to be scary good next year. It will be year two of Brian Kelly and if the way year one ended is any indication of the future of Notre Dame Football, then a national championship is not out of the question. The offense is going to be dangerous plus the news of Michael Floyd returning next year has to have opposing defenses quivering. The defense which has been a problem area ended the season looking real good only allowing 39 points in the final four games (14 of those points were in garbage time against Miami in the Sun Bowl). Plus add another good recruiting class, a moderately tough schedule, and we're looking at a BCS game. What the hell maybe if everything falls into place, ND will get a chance to get smacked play Alabama in the national title game.
