    That Bama line is one the best I've ever seen at the college level.

    Musburger was quite enamoured with the ex Miss Alabama wasn't he?

    I wonder what her Auburn sorority sisters think of her wearing Alabama red.

    Notre Dame honks always bring up those standards when they get killed by a real program.

    Musburger certainly didn't hide the fact he was rooting for South Bend City College.

    Well it's not like it's not true. Wanna bet which SAT scores were higher Teo or Lacey? :D

    BTW: I'm no "Notre Dame honk". Don't care for either program. Thought ORE should've been there instead of ND

    Both true, ... what a great night!

    Most games I always want to see a tight contest, this one went exactly like I wanted it to.

    They didn't belong on the same field with Alabama. Te O was so over-rated, .. did you see all of the awards he won ??

    People wanted ND to be relevant again so bad, so they put them where they didn't belong. Reminds of the dad that puts his kid at shortstop when he isn't good enough.

    :D

    Major props to Bama. That OL put on one heck of a show as they were blowing ND players off the line. They never had a chance. Total physical domination.

    I have coached for about 20 years, so I guess it is the coach in me.

    But I always enjoy watching dominant teams dominate. I appreciate that so much.

    Because I know how hard it is to get your team to that level, and how hard it is to repeat that each year after another.

    Occasionally I cheer for an underdog, but I also enjoy when the best teams prove why they are the best team.

    I cheer for Saban because he is a West Virginia boy. I watched him play his high school ball locally. I shouldn't say it quite like that, .. I only saw him play a couple of times. But I saw his team come in to our field, and beat our high school 40-0. And we were undefeated conference champs at the time.

    I also always love when ND loses. My disdain for ND helps me understand why everyone hates the Dallas Cowboys.

    They hate us when we win, and hate us because the media puffs us up when we aren't good and lose.

    Just like ND.

    Given the depths ND has fallen to over the last few years they have nothing to be ashamed of making it to the National Championship. That staff has done a great job of getting talent to go to ND and I think Brain Kelly will get this program even stronger.

    As for Bama there totally dominated the lines of scrimmage and when you can do that you can pretty much move the ball at will. Hard to tackle a big RB when you are falling backwards. I give Bama all the credit for a great performance

    With 37 days (Alabama) and 44 days (ND) between the last regular season games and the title game, that kind of layoff will favor the team with greater depth and the better coaching staff. Alabama was ahead in both counts.

    Give them credit. This was a total beatdown, and Alabama is ridiculously deep with outstanding coaching and preparation. Notre Dame did not have the depth, or the coaching staff, to hang in this game. Saban would be a fool to consider leaving Alabama with the talent that he has brought to the school.
