    There is no doubt that Bama is an excellent football team, and against a grind-it-out offense like ND, they are going to crush them. The beauty of an Oregon match-up would be that Bama would be facing an offense they are not conditioned to defend as readily - see the Tex-Tech game for a perfect example. Oregon runs a better style offense that Tech does, and Tech beat Bama soundly.

    I am not saying that Oregon would have won, I'm not that blindly loyal, but it would have been a hell of a lot better game that the embarrassment that is going on now.

    Edit: and yeah, just saw the replays on that punt - whoops on the refs part.
    This shit here man.... I would have loved to see oregan vs bama. I (biasly) think that bama would have won but a better game than ND put up for sure.

    ********denotes the first time a game had 3 roughing the kicker calls. also denotes 2/3 FG and how those 6 points became 10
    that game was a joke. UT got every call in the world and those 3 roughing the kicker calls that gave them the ball inside the 10 3 times was pathetic.

    Notre Dame earned their butt-whoopin'

    lots of other teams had the opportunity but didn't make it through their schedules undefeated, no sense in crying about playoffs they're already coming

    For awhile, I was considering myself a Nebraska fan. Later on, it made sense, given I had a high school friend play for them.

    But I don't think it's "loyalty" for me, so much as "there's way too many teams, and I'm not going to learn every player on all of them, so screw all that noise". I have two teams I really care about, and they both happen to be in the SEC. I like to root for underdog teams all the time, and I don't mind seeing LSU and Tennessee get their asses handed to them by high school teams. I also enjoy(ed) watching Boise State, just for the entertainment factor. Fuck their field though, I want to be able to see.

    Meh, I understand your point (> 1) but this is really stretching it. Most of those games weren't as close as the final scores seemingly indicate. (How many of those did you watch?)

    Ohio State/Miami, Texas/USC, and Auburn/Oregon were tight back-and-forth contests. The rest... not so much.

    I just left the campus of the University of Alabama. All I can say is, fuck that noise. I would gladly elect Nick Saban president of the world, but fuck every mouth breathing degenerate from that campus.

    Frat boys rule the SEC. Frat boys are the lamest thing since Bambi with a bum leg. I loathe them. I would enjoy my school winning the national title, but there are too many douche-bag frat boys to enjoy myself.

    I wish that some of you could see this abomination of pop culture and conformity. Everything that is wrong with the US.

    ND looked scared and the gameplan was pathetic

    bama hadn't looked better all year and considering AJ's accuracy throwing over coverage is horrid, they sure seemed fine with giving him everything underneath

    Only thing more pathetic than Alabama frat boys are Notre Dame football players and fans.

    I hate being from Alabama. Only thing worse would be being an Indiana redneck or ND fan.

    Seriously, Notre Dame fucking sucked!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I hope everyone that thought that they had a snowball's chance in hell realizes how absurd they were.

    their defense has played decent in those big games

    but overall they've never been more than a 3-5 team in reality
    Nothing in this statement either makes sense or is true. But thanks for the chuckles.

I feel bad that your team needs to wear 20 different uniforms to get people attention instead of winning NC games like Bama or LSU does. Anyways bask in the glory of another SEC BCS champion winner for the 7th straight year and I'll sit here and feed on your tears till next year when the SEC wins again.
    My bad really - I assumed you knew what you were talking about. Turns out I was wrong. But feel free to keep shaming yourself - we're all loving it.

    (but damn Alabama is a good team - no one can say otherwise)
    The less you know, the more you believe.


    Actually, Mr. Lennon, I CAN imagine a world with no hate, religion, war, or violence.
    I can also imagine attacking such a world, because they would never see it coming.

    By the way, it was cool to see Urban Meyer behind the desk again. He just seems to fit. Obviously I'm biased because he got us two titles, but I'm a pretty big fan. I say he should have just fully retired and continued working for ESPN.

    Since we are talking about Recent history, there really isn't a big enough sample size to make an accurate judgement. Under Chip Kelly, Oregon is 1-2 against the SEC with a combined score of 94-75. The LSU game turned on a bad special teams play early on that resulted in a direct 14 point swing. The Auburn game came down to a last second field goal that was set up because of a fluke call on a play that everyone on the field including the guy with the ball thought was blown dead. Oregon went into Tennessee and drilled them in a night game earlier that same year. To its credit, Tennessee who will likely be ranked under its new head coach, is coming to Oregon in 2013.

    Next year it will be Oregon/Stanford vs. Alabama/Florida for the BCS title.

    All I am going to say in my parting remarks:

    Notre Dame sucks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I can't believe that any of you fools thought they were ever worth a shit. They almost lost to Pitt! Ole Miss beat the dog piss out of Pitt! No surprise that Bama beat the everliving bejesus out of these fools.

    You do Not know how to play football! That goes for everyone but the SEC and Louisville/Clemson.

    Notre Dame will NEVER be as good as Alabama. How bad is that? How bad is it that you can't outdo a tiny town with nothing in it besides a football stadium?

    N O T R E D A M E S U C K S ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

    Cool it bro -Conscript

    BCS national championship game started in 2007. The 2008 game is pushing it as far as a close game but I'll give it to you. Still, for supposedly matching up the #1 and #2 teams in the country for a game they have been for the most part a dud.

  15. #1495
    Geez, that was pretty nuts. It's like the folks in Alabama pour their time and energy into football instead of college.

    SEC seems at a different level than most of the rest of the NCAA.

  16. #1496
    And now that the season is finally over, I can say there wasn't one good close major bowl game this year. Not that I saw anyway. I may have missed one or two somewhere, but I don't think I did. A sad end to a sad season.
    A true Patriot fights for their country, not for their government.

    Didn't watch a snap of the game last night. Bama destroyed them. Not exactly unexpected, but the fashion in which they did it was pretty nuts.

  18. #1498
    I couldn't decide who I wanted to win. I wanted ND to win to shut up Bama/SEC fans since I hate their fanbase. But I also wanted Bama to win to show the nation how much of a joke ND was this year. They had way too many close games against bad teams.

    Next year it will be Oregon/Stanford vs. Alabama/Florida for the BCS title.

    So the only wins Oregon has is over bad SEC teams. Mississippi State was pretty bad back then, and Tennessee hasn't had a decent team since they won the NC. Granted they haven't played many in recent history, still not a good stat though.

    As far as this NC game goes, it was pretty bad. I told all my friends going in that it would show whether ND was good or lucky, I think we know which now. You let Alabama run the ball like that you are gonna lose every time.

    As far as next year goes it should be interesting. Alabama is still probably the class of the SEC going into next year and probably will be every year until Saban leaves. That said though, I'm interested to see what Texas A&M, Ohio State, Oregon, and Stanford do next year. I honestly don't think anyone else has much of a chance without some luck ( Florida's coach has no control over his guys and he came from the choke job that is Texas). I think ND gets snapped back to reality next year.

    Anyways thats another year closed out, time for some hockey
