This was actually pretty fascinating. But before getting into the findings, I hate Notre Dame so much that I refuse to put them on this list. They are like Duke in the sense that they have a million fans who didn’t even go to the school nor have a relative who did. Join a fucking conference and maybe I will consider adding you to any list.
But the amount of Pro Bowlers not just in general but in 2016-17 on this list is quite a bit. This team could easily compete with any of the five power conferences on Any Given Sunday. Guaranteed. Big Ben throwing to AB, Edelman, TY, Davante and Garcon to go along with an offensive line with three pro bowlers. Not to mention a deadly rushing attack in Jay Ajayi, David Johnson and Matt Forte. Oh, and what about the best Tight End in the league not named Rob Gronkowski? I haven’t even mentioned the studs and future Hall Of Famers they have on D yet. Here goes something.
