In fairness, though, ND's weaker SOS was unexpected.

It's not like ND lined up a bunch of soup cans. Nobody could have anticipated that Stanford, USC, Virginia Tech, and FSU would all be down this season. ND scheduled a very tough slate. That looked like a top 5 type schedule just a couple of years ago. It turned out to not be that great, though still respectable.
