Shoulda, woulda, coulda...didn't.
Bama will wipe the floor with ND
ND fans better pray bama doesnt get there
Yes, that's what I'm saying. When we are talking #1 team in the nation, ... that should never happen at home.
Different thread, has nothing to do with Notre Dame. (ridiculous thing to suggest)
Yeah sure. SEC homers are like Redskin homers
I am not an Irish fan by any means but I think Georgia is the worst matchup for them. When they went into Oklahoma and put a beat down on them, they got my respect. Whoever they play I see a low scoring game. Playing against their defense is like slogging through the mud.
Well fortunately for us Irish fans the BCS, AP Top 25, USA Today Coaches Poll, and Harris Poll all disagree with you and have Notre Dame at #1. The Legends Poll does have Notre Dame ranked #2 behind Bama and yet they'd still be paying for a National Championship. I guess the fact that Notre Dame ALMOST lost to Pitt doesn't weigh as heavily in their minds.
which is why there shouldn't be any rankings till about week 8 imo. Teams get way too much credit for beating over ranked teams early. Hell, USC was #1 and the Big 10 is always ridiculously ranked early.
I'm not saying ND doesn't deserve to be there they won all their games.

Notre Dame gets 17,000 BCS title game tickets ($350 face value each). Told they’ve had requests for more than 100,000 tickets.

That's because the SEC has won the last seven (?) National Championships.
You earn a good reputation, you ride that reputation.
I'm an SEC fan, but ND matches up well with Bama. Bama is a run-oriented team, and that is ND's strength.
ND's weakness is its secondary. So is Bama's. But Bama isn't much of a passing team. They can get clicking in the passing game, but no one's going to confuse them with USC (with Barkley) or Oregon.
Besides, Bama's starting wide receiver (Bell) went down with a broken ankle. That's going to impact the passing game.
I can see ND winning this game against Bama. This Bama team is not like last year's Bama team.
Having said that, Johnny Football is about the best quarterback Bama has seen. They couldn't handle him until the second half. I doubt ND's quarterback will pose a bigger threat than Johnny Football.
But we're getting ahead of ourselves. It may be Georgia vs. ND. I think Georgia would be the worst matchup for ND because Georgia has a better passing game than Bama.
you give saban a month to prepare, he will be lights out
i dont think it wil be close
(said as a non-SEC fan by the way)
you never know, Te'o could have another epic 5 tackle game with an INT thrown right to him.
Tricky Nicky has to get there first.
that is the great thing about ND defense
Manti does not have to carry them they are a team D
I like the tackle I think he's number 90. I could make tackles playing behind that guy.
UGA will beat Bama this week. Prepare yourselves. Gurshell is going to run all over Bama's d
