And not many acknowledged a similar sort of luck necessary for South Florida, Michigan, and Florida St. to beat ND in 2011.
It does work both ways, but there seems to be an attitude here that when ND has misfortune then ND was responsible for such occurrences. Yet, when it works in ND's favor it's random, flukish, and wasn't earned.
Very few here were ever open to the possibility that ND could have easily been an 11 win team in 2011. But somehow it's not hard to imagine that ND's 2012 team could have had only 9 or 10 wins. Nature of the beast, I guess.
