Compare these schedules

New, 3 comments

I am going to list 2 teams schedule and I want as many comments out there on which is better. I will use a ranking of 1 to 6 with each point representing teams in order of ranking. So 1 would be teams ranked 1-20, 2 would be 21-40 and so on through the rest. I also will include the '06 record as well, bold means bowl participant. One of these schedules is said to be one of the toughest in the nation I disagree strongly, while I know that one is most likely better then the other I just don't think one is one of the top over schedules. You guys decide.

As you can see team A is not quite as good as B. Also for further comparison team A is playing 6 bowl teams and team B is playing 8. And team B people say is a brutal schedule and that is why they haven't won a national title since 1988, yes I am referring to Notre Dame as team B and University of Utah as team A, so at least in my opinion Notre Dame's schedule is only slightly more difficult then Utah. Those domer fans need to quit saying their schedule is so tough, they play Duke, the service academies, and mid to low end Big 10 teams. Their toughest games are Michigan and USC (EDITED FROM UCLA) and BC is a distant third but still good. Utah plays comparable teams in UCLA and Louisville, plus they mix in BYU, Oregon State, and TCU which should be top 25 teams throughout the year.
