Clashmore Mike is a Notre Dame football blog with a keen eye on statistics. (See their recent analysis of coaches over- and under-performing expectations, cast in terms of "clutch" versus "luck"). They were intrigued by our College FOA projections for the Fighting Irish and their opponents and sent us a handful of questions.
There are more than few Irish fans anticipating big results from a cakewalk schedule (five straight non-AQ opponents down the stretch), and recent Notre Dame coaches have had BCS-level success early in their ultimately doomed careers. We're projecting more modest success in Brian Kelly's first year, a step in the right direction if not a full blown "Return to Glory".

The Giants and Ravens set a record in Super Bowl XXXV with 21 total punts. That record may well be in jeopardy. But in this battle of top defenses, Carolina's superior and more flexible offense gives the Panthers the edge.
