Still officially independent of any league, Notre Dame does not have a conference championship game to aspire to in 2013. That doesn’t mean, however, that Brian Kelly and Co. don’t have a goal they’re working towards this upcoming season.

Most college football experts do not plan on seeing the Fighting Irish make a return trip to the BCS title game, especially with the loss of starting quarterback Everett Golson, but don’t tell the players lacing them up for fall practice anything different. The Golden Domers already have the BCS title game printed out on their schedule.

Bold move, but at program like Notre Dame’s, it’s championship or bust each and every season.

Do you think they have what it takes to make back-to-back title game appearances?
