Also to be expected, there were some critics, including those who thought the Big 12 wasn't getting enough love.
If Baylor beats OU, OSU, TCU, IMO it would have accomplished more than Notre Dame & as much as Ohio State, regardless of nonconference sked-- Mark Schlabach (@Mark_Schlabach) November 11, 2015

But, at least Kirk Herbstreit has faith in Notre Dame.

At the end of the day, at least we're not College Football Playoff chairman Jeff Long. Though, he does seem to have a good sense of humor.

Even with all the noise, Notre Dame players are focused on what's important right now.
