(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 12

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

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.

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.

Considering now one else can beat the SEC in the NCG, I'm not sure how trying to fight off 2 SEC teams in a playoff is going to be any better.

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


It's going to be the same regardless of who wins.

Swoop1809: 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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

the team ranked #3 is not the same as the 3rd best team in the country.

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.
