Roll Tide. One of the few teams whose defense I enjoy watching more than their offense.
Notre Dame is being completely manhandled.
"This isnít stats vs scouts - this is stats and scouts working together, building an organization that blends the best of both worlds. This is the blueprint for how a baseball organization should be run. And, whether the baseball men of the 20th century like it or not, this is where baseball is going."---Dave Cameron, U.S.S. Mariner
It's unfortunate Notre Dame is so disinterested.
The SEC isn't like the BIG 10 or a service academy.
ND got exposed big time, they look flat out inept. This game is a complete annihilation by Alabama.
Talk about shredding an opponent and spitting them out! Geez!
Did anyone honestly think ND was going to have a chance in this game? I didn't. They should have lost to Pitt, and barely escaped Purdue.
Not only did Alabama have experience on their side ... this was their 3rd NC game in the last 4 years... but I believed 'Bama's O-line and running game would utterly take any fight out of the Irish.
I laughed at one post-game commentator who said the only time McCarron got touched in the entire game was in the 4th quarter by HIS OWN PLAYER when McCarron barked at Jones after a delay penalty and Jones shoved him away. LOL
Just because someone goes undefeated, IMO, doesn't mean they deserve to be in the NC. The system is still flawed badly IMO.
All I know is I'll be collecting on a few bets at work today. I even gave a couple guys 14 pts. LOL

I kinda think Brian Kelly overachived this year and that might come back to bite him in the butt if expecations are too high next year.
Saban could leave for Dallas today and I honestly wouldnt be upset. Wish we could buy out the Virginia Tech game next this year with the promise we will visit them in 2016 at their place and schedule either Oregon, Ohio State, or Boise State in Atlanta to open the season. Its time to give their fan base some reality.
My favorite line from the game was someone tweeted that A.J. McCarron's girlfriend, Katherine Webb, was seeking a restraining order against Brent Musberger. Man, did Musberger go on about her (she is attractive).

This game just further proved its the SEC and everyone else. Seven straight BCS titles for the league. Also Bama is as dominant now as they were in the Bear Bryant days. I thought it would be a close game with Bama winning. But they showed they were light years ahead of ND. I'm just glad Ohio State was on probation or we would have had either them or ND as national champions today. Certainly wouldn't have been a true representation of the best team in the nation.

The SEC has been good, but Alabama has been the dominant one. With the exception of Alabama, I think the other top tier teams in college can play with the likes of LSU, Florida, and Georgia.
I never thought ND had a chance in beating Alabama, and as the bowl season wore done it became apparent that the teams that ND beat showed that they weren't up to snuff in their bowl games. With the exception of Stanford (who ND got by because of an awful call) all the teams that ND beat were overrated. Its kinda ironic because the team that I thought could have played with Alabama is Stanford.
