Bull Run Versus the Blog Poll - The Irish are back

Time once again for me to stand up and face the Music... How much do I differ from the Blog Poll?

Well the Irish have done it... They are back in the good graces of the only College football poll that matters! The SBNation Blog Poll. Fir the first time in a long, long, long, long, long, long really long time Notre dame is ranked in the Blog Polls top 10, and they have earned it.

I still have the Irish *just* outside of the top ten. In my heart of hearts I wanted to put them there but I just could not really justify bumping anyone ranked above them. Besides the Irish still have a ton of time to make up ground and a schedule which will let them do just that.
