(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

rugman11: Wow, I just saw Herbstreit's rant about NIU. What a douche. Dear Kirk, the reason NIU is in the Orange Bowl is because the Big East and the B1G sucked balls this year. You want to biatch at somebody, biatch at Louisville, Ohio State, and Penn State. They could have prevented this.

The NIU hate is moronic. They've done more to earn a BCS bid than each of the last three Big East champions have.

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.

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.

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.

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.
