Notre Dame’s BCS title odds fall following Golson’s departure

Discover BCS National Championship - Notre Dame v Alabama Getty Images

There’s something you never thought you’d read, right?

Originally listed at 28-1 odds of winning next year’s final BCS championship game earlier this month by, Notre Dame has fallen to 40-1 odds of winning the title next year. The reason? Clearly the loss of starting quarterback Everett Golson, who has been suspended for the 2013 Fall Term for what is being called “poor academic judgment.

Additionally, and not surprisingly, Golson has been removed from Bovada’s Heisman betting list. He was previously listed as a 22-1 favorite to win the trophy.

So, ya know… bet accordingly.

    ND has ZERO shot of a national title as evidenced by the absolute beat down put on them last year. They were the 6th best SEC team last year at best.

    I don’t think that with or without Golson they closed that gap.

    Then again, that is where the odds-makers had them…tied for 6th in the SEC.

    ND will be lucky to win 6 games this year with or without Golson.

    Went from “Slim” to “none.”

    Last yr was a joke that they even went to the title game, now – no chance

    Is there a Vegas bet where you can wager your house v. something NOT happening? ND winning the national title? In football, right? Men’s football, right?

    Everett should never been accepted at ND, a bastion of higher learning. He is a Miami, inner city thug kind of guy.

    Golson is from SC, not Miami. Myrtle Beach to be exact.

    Part of being “Processed” in the BCS game. Teams have a history of being just mediocre after playing ‘Bama in BCS games.

    I love Myrtle Beach… that is all. About as constructive as most comments on here though.

    What, they fell from slim to N.F.C?

    @tuscaloosaguy – that seemed to work real well for you after you got your ass handed to you by Utah in the Sugar Bowl a few years back:)

    After that game things have been pretty good at BAMA.

    “ND has ZERO shot of a national title as evidenced by the absolute beat down put on them last year. They were the 6th best SEC team last year at best.”

    LSU got the same beat down the year before when Honey Badger looked lost trying to cover Bama’s WR.

    The SEC is Bama and everybody else. LSU will always underachieve despite elite talent. Muschamp ain’t Meyer and they were embarrassed in their bowl game by a Big East team. UT is a shell of its former self circa the late ’90s. Auburn, Arkansas & Mizzou are an embarrassment on & off the field. UGA loses most of its stars to suspension or the penal system…and when they don’t, they still underachieve. South Carolina needed a last second score to beat an 8-5 Michigan.

    Like I said….it’s Bama & everybody else in the SEC is eating their dust.

    That Big East team, Louisville, probably would have give The Tide a more competitive game than your vaunted Irish. Michigan was better at the end of the season than their record showed. As for the teams that are an embarrassment to the SEC, that is your jaded opinion. All are great academic institutions. You are nothing but a ND “homer” who has a bias against schools located in the south. But while we are on embarrassments by high-profile schools, who will answer for Declan and Katie? Will Prince Shembo be starting this year? You’re pathetic.

    He should have been recruited by U. of Miami…..that is where all the “thugs” attend college……I knew he was from Myrtle Beach. And he had more than one academic violation while at ND. A student can only be dismissed upon being caught for the second violation. I wonder how many Everett Golson got away with that ND didn’t catch? If not Miami, than UNC would have been a better choice……I understand they have a department that merely gives passing grades if one “qualifies”…….or did they “correct” that……

    It is hard to believe that Golson would let his team down like this. Perhaps it is even harder to believe that Coach Kelly placed such faith in the kid. Obviously Kelly only saw the up side and no downside at all.

    With Gunner gone and Tommy Rees left, ND’s upcoming season is most certainly in jeopardy.

    Just walk thru a relatively cupcakish schedule again with a media story, and they’ll be back in it.
