(Sportige)   So here's the real question: how can the third-best team in the country give up 350 yards of rushing? And as a bonus question, even given 37 days to prepare, will Notre Dame do any better?   (sportige.com) divider line 81

It'll never be a true national championship game until they line em up and have playoffs within 2 weeks of the last game.
 
2012-12-02 12:21:48 PM  
It's a good thing tOSU has a long and glorious record of getting crushed by SEC teams in bowl games. Otherwise, when Alabama annihilates ND, the 'tOSU ARE TEH REAL CHAMPEENS' crowd might actually get some supporters. Now, though...meh.

I don't know. How can the Nebraska Blackshirts give up 539 rushing yards?
 
2012-12-02 02:07:11 PM  
37 days is actually too long. The national championship always looks more like the 2nd week of play as opposed to the sharp play at the end of the regular season.
 
2012-12-02 02:07:19 PM  
the team ranked #3 is not the same as the 3rd best team in the country.
 
2012-12-02 02:08:02 PM  
fark you subby. Georgia lost by 5 farking yards. That's the difference between an SEC championship and a national championship win and not even making a BCS game.

Come on Notre Dame. Beat the Tide!
 
2012-12-02 02:08:24 PM  
alabama is clearly unbeatable. no team this season could possibly beat them.

2012-12-02 02:10:54 PM  
Alabama had a relatively weak & easy schedule this year AND had the loss to Texas A&M (an honorable loss, since TAM is a great team).
Though I am a fan, I'm not sure the Tide has earned the right to be where it is right now.
 
2012-12-02 02:18:41 PM  
Alabama 31
Notre Dame 17
 
2012-12-02 02:23:55 PM  
Answer, even ranked number 3, they did not have the 3rd defense in the country.

Notre Dame is significantly better vs the run on paper than Georgia is.

That being said, while I'm hoping for an ND win, I think the game will be at least much closer than the SEC echo chamber would have you believe.
 
2012-12-02 02:23:55 PM  
Sure, Georgia gave up 32 points to Alabama. But they also gave up 44 to Tennessee, 23 to Buffalo, and 20 apiece to Missouri and Florida Atlantic.

I'm not entirely convinced that Alabama's impressive offensive numbers weren't as much due to Georgia's defense as they were to Alabama's offense.
 
2012-12-02 03:05:55 PM  
Notre Dame isnt going to take kindly to hearing about how badly they are going to get destroyed in this game for over a month. Remember in 2006 when everyone said for a month how badly Florida would get blown out by Ohio State, or how everyone said how badly Ohio State would get blown out in 2002 by Miami? I think the game is going to be much closer than people are saying and I think ND pulls out a squeaker.
 
2012-12-02 03:07:08 PM  
The playoff is good, but the next step is having the playoff games start right after the conference championship games. They can still play bowls later in the year if they want to, but after a few years I predict that bowl games will find their way to their rightful place in the dustbin of history.
 
2012-12-02 03:07:38 PM  
Great, another year where the SEC is gifted a national championship birth. This plus one can't come soon enough, and maybe in 10 years there will be a really championship

For what it's worth, anyway.

If Alabama wins, we'll be subjected to non-stop gloating from SEC fans. If Notre Dame wins, we'll be subjected to non-stop spunk-gargling from the media.

Either way, far from being ambivalent or apathetic, I find myself rooting for a very specific result -- a blowout. While it's clear we'll have obnoxious vicarious douchebaggery to deal with regardless of whoever wins, at least if there's no doubt in the result we won't have to put up with ear-splitting whining at the same time.

More like NIU earned an automatic bid by finishing in the Top 16. The Orange Bowl had to take them. Plus, Georgia was never going to a BCS game since only two teams from each conference can play in BCS bowls unless they're planning in the BCS Championship Game.

The only way NIU could have gotten in as an at-large is if the Sugar Bowl chose Louisville (who also had an autobid) over Oklahoma. And then the Orange Bowl would have also had to have taken NIU over Oklahoma. There's no way either of those schools is a better draw than the Sooners. They have to have snuck in with an automatic bid.

This is the first time bama has played anyone in SEC game besides florida. Those two have met in atlanta 7 times. This, therefore, is the first time for bama to meet Ga in SEC game and first time bama beat anyone besides Fl in SEC Game. This is the first time since 1992 bama won the SEC game wearing white "away" uniforms. Its the first time in the Ga dome bama has won an SEC game in their whites. 1992 was in birmingham.

January will be only the 7th time Bama and Notre Dame have met. Dame is up 6 to 1 in those games

On a different note, I found it funny how the voters kept on trying to make Boise State happen despite a loss to Michigan St., another at home to San Diego St., and a 7-6 squeaker at home against BYU being their only good win all season.

The voters somehow thought that was worth #15 in the polls (which would have been an auto-berth in a BCS game), but the computers stepped in with a reality check and didn't even rank them.

Texas: 5-4 in the Big 12.

They are, but they wound up ranked 21st. And I think Nebraska can take some of the blame, since they were 12th prior to the game. A non-AQ champ has to rank 16th or higher *and* be ranked above at least one AQ champ. Louisville won the Big Least, and Wisconsin (B1G champs) weren't ranked at all.
 
2012-12-03 09:23:39 AM

You mean the defensive line that allowed less than 300 yards and 10 point squat points a game? Or the offensive line that paved the way for more than 200 rushing yards a game?

steamingpile: no passing game


No, just the highest-receiving tight end in school history.

steamingpile: and one decent to good player on defense with the rest being average,


You're a moran. You can get a best-in-the-nation performance from one offensive star and a cast of average supporting characters, but that dog don't hunt on the other side of the ball.
 
2012-12-03 09:43:15 AM  
Oh, and:

SEC - #2
Big XII - #5
PAC-12 - #6
ACC - #12

Heck, even WAC champs Utah State nearly outranked Louisville (they came in at #22), so they, along with Mountain West champs Boise State (who came in at #19) met half of the criteria for an auto-bid.

There's a total of ten BCS slots: NCG gets two. #3 and #4 get auto-bids regardless. SEC, Big XII, B1G, PAC-12, ACC, and Big East champs get auto-bids. That's 9 auto-bids. Imagine the chaos if Boise State had ranked just 3 spots higher and/or Utah State had gotten 8 spots higher. They would've both qualified for auto-bids, so 12 auto-bids for 10 slots.

/Ah, so *that's* the new math they told me about growing up. 

Don't forget, BCS busters don't only affect AQ teams like OU.

LA Tech screws themselves out of a bowl at 9-3.

Misplaced yat: okiemule: Imagine the chaos if Boise State had ranked just 3 spots higher and/or Utah State had gotten 8 spots higher. They would've both qualified for auto-bids, so 12 auto-bids for 10 slots.

Only the highest-ranked non-AQ team that fulfills the conditions gets an auto-bid.


True. I overlooked that bit. There'd still be some moaning from the non-AQ's, though. While we're on outlandish scenarios, how about this:

#1: Notre Dame
#2: Navy
#3: Army
#4: BYU
One non-AQ champ ranked higher than an AQ champ.

While wildly unlikely in reality, that would cause some interesting screaming, as that leaves 5 slots for 6 AQ champs. Like I said, we'll never see it, but weird stuff like that runs through my mind, ya know? :)


That would leave 4 slots for the 6 AQ champs. While nearly impossible in reality, imagine that one. :)

kevinatilusa: The Oklahoma-Texas A&M matchup is more mouth-watering than half of the BCS games. A Texas-Texas A&M matchup would have been a blowout that only A&M fans would have cared about.


Oh I would have watched it and I think quite a few people would have liked to see the old Texas/A&M rivalry game played since Texas says the refuse to play them anymore, but I would have loved to see the beat down A&M would have put on them but OU is just as good since they beat down Texas.

FriarReb98: Let's put this to bed right here, right now. Georgia's defense sucks. It has always sucked. As long as Richt is there, it will always suck.

Comparing ND's defense to theirs is offensive to just about every other team the Irish played.


Georgias defense is a lot better, the problem in previous years was willie martinez who was a large proponent of the strip the ball kind of tackling that is useless, grantham tells players to drive through the opponent which is how you should tackle. The biggest way you can tell the defense has gotten better is that teams are putting out feelers about wanting to hire him as a coach, in the entire time willie was at UGA nobody ever asked about his availability, hes on with stoops because they were friends years ago. I think its up in the top 30 now where a few years ago with willie it was down in the 80s or so, its better than it has been.....

Zagloba: You mean the defensive line that allowed less than 300 yards and 10 point squat points a game? Or the offensive line that paved the way for more than 200 rushing yards a game?


That was good enough for 27th, 4 spots ahead of UGA so I am sure that 4 spots means ND will run all over bama, right?!?!

Zagloba: No, just the highest-receiving tight end in school history.


Yes, that really matters, their QB barely cracked the top 80 in passing yards for the country at number 79. I repeat, they have no passing game which will allow their safeties to cheat up and shut down any run game..

Zagloba: You're a moran. You can get a best-in-the-nation performance from one offensive star and a cast of average supporting characters, but that dog don't hunt on the other side of the ball.


Yes it will, but the problem is that you can neutralize that player, just ask jarvis jones on south carolina they did a good job of taking him out of plays and it won them the game.

Fact remains, most likely bama will crush ND but I will pray to God, Buddha, Allah, Ganesh, Vishnu, and even offer up some vodoo sacrifices that bama losses, then I will throw in a few prayers that Louisville crushes florida.......because fark florida.........

I assumed a Georgia fan's hatred of Notre Dame would supersede that of Alabama.
