U mad, bro?

In all seriousness, a BCS game featuring Alabama and Notre Dame would likely have the highest television ratings in the history of the contest. Not just because of the millions of Alabama and Notre Dame fans, but the millions upon millions of people who hate the success both programs have had over the past 100 years.

People who don't follow college football at all probably didn't even know Oregon and Kansas had colleges with football teams!

I'm certainly not mad about Alabama's involvement. I like having the SEC on top of the college football world (unless it's Florida). Obviously, I'd prefer it were the boys in Orange & White, but that ship has sailed and it's not 1998 anymore. As for Notre Dame, yeah, I've got a big problem with them being in the national title picture. Not a fan of the boys from South Bend.

While I completely understand that having these two recognizable programs going at it would "put butts in the seats," I also love variety, seeing underdog teams who've never had a chance in the spotlight rise up to have their day. The "Rocky" scenario. It's a rare thing, but it does happen, even in the NFL.

Re: College Football 2012

Looking forward to a Georgia/ND championship. But either Bama or UGA is going to roll all over Notre Dame. They haven't played an SEC team since 2006, where they were obliterated by LSU in a bowl game.

I find it hilarious that after 25 years of media hype that Notre Dame is finally relevant and NBC doesn't even get the game that everybody was watching yesterday.

Perhaps, when Notre Dame gets their butts kicked by Alabama/Georgia, the AP will see fit to grant Ohio State the #1 ranking. They would be the only unbeaten team left in that scenario. That's gotta count for something.

It is kinda funny but, as I understand it, the reason behind this is that NBC only gets Notre Dame's home games.

Didn't bother me what network it was on. I was sitting in the stands.

Although, I do gotta hand it to the USC fans... the vast majority of fans at the tailgate were extremely cordial. Very few assholes. Being 7-4 will probably do that to ya.

I have my doubts that they belong in the top 5, though I do consider them top 10 at least. Stewart Mandel sums up my feelings nicely, in his column today

An undefeated season anymore is quite an accomplishment, even with a weak conference like the B1G. Still, I'm not one to place THAT much significance on it, at least not over a team that is clearly superior with 1 loss - like Bama, Georgia, or Florida. Throw Oregon and possibly Kansas St as well, as being better teams than an undefeated Ohio St.

Re: College Football 2012

I believe that GA is more than capable of beating Bama just as ND is more than capable of beating the winner of the SEC champ. and i have a dog in this hunt I'm a Alabama fan. but i try to be honest about my team. Beside i know alot of dawg fans and they have nothing but class so if we lose to you good luck beating ND.

Re: College Football 2012

Anyone watching Baylor vs Okla St? Lache Seastrunk for Baylor just hit a 76 yd TD run... the last 40 of which came after he pulled a hamstring or an extremely bad leg cramp. You could just see him lurch when it hit him and then he runs through it and stumbles the last few yards into the end zone. Manly play that was!

Ouch...... I just pulled my hamstring a few weeks ago playing flag football with some buddies, and those injuries hurt like absolute hell. He's gonna feel (and see) that in a week. Amazing that he was able to complete the run, he must have been on some serious adrenaline.

Re: College Football 2012

Okay the latest word is that it was a severe leg cramp. Still, that he gutted it out like that and kept running... that TD was the difference in the game.

Anyone watching Bama vs Georgia? GREAT game for the fan who just wants to sit back and enjoy football!

Great game. Heartbreaking way to end it for Georgia, though.
