    Actually not as much as you would think. I did a little research a while ago and in recent years Michigan has been more overrated than ND. In terms off where you were ranked preseason and where you finished the year. Although I looked this up before this past season ended so that years info wouldn't be there. You could say Notre Dame was overrated this year for starting 2nd and ending wherever they did, was it 18? But then on the flip side you could say they were underrated in 2005 when they started the season unranked and ended up in the Fiesta Bowl.

      Yeah but the only reason ND made the Fiesta Bowl, is, well, because they are ND. No one else gets that kind of free pass from voters

          Actually I believe if they had 9 wins they get an automatic BCS Bowl Bid. I'm not sure that is the case anymore with the one extra game most teams player now. But when they played Ohio St in the Fiesta Bowl, in their contract with the NCAA all they need is 9 wins.

                i don't think so, for them to get an automatic they have to finish in the top 9 in the AP.
                I could be wrong though

                      well the BCS formula uses the AP to factor in its standings... i think.

                        I don't like it, top 10 teams usually have veteran QB's and a # of your top 10 teams don't. You #'s 4 through 7 have new starters at QB and no matter how good they may become, it is a huge adjustment usually resulting in a couple of loses before they settle in, see Texas last year!!!
                        And proud of it!!!

                          If you go by preseason ranks, being overrated isn't necessarily a bad thing. Over the past 10 years the teams that are overrated the most (not in any order) are Michigan, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Texas, LSU, Miami, and USC. Some Wisconsin fan posted those statistics and those teams made up 8 of the top 15-20 most overrated teams of the last 10 years. All of these team face huge expectations year after year. No team can meet expectations every single year. Infact, more times than not, the top teams don't meet their expectations.

                            No Virginia Tech? You might be forgetting that VT returns the 2x reigning #1 NCAA defense...

                            Put VT in the top 10, around 8 or 9.

                              maybe they have to finish at 9 or better in the final BCS standings?
