“We have 45 men suited up. They're all supposed to be ready to play.”
[QUOTE=Bamabuzzard;2042217]It's Notre Dame. USC and ND are the media's teams. Get used to it. We had a 20 year break. But it appears that break is over...[/QUOTE
Along with Michigan and Ohio State make up the Evil Quadrangle that the media and the ncaa has always bowed down to. But above all notre dame.
I think ND is better than everyone thinks ....on any given day. They played well against Stanforf, OU and USC. They played poorly against Pitt, BYU, Purdue and a couple of others. I feel like their freshman QB gets better and better each week. If Bama or UGA brings their A game, they should beat the irish but if the SEC team plays sloppy, ND can easily beat them. Hopefully it will be the Tide and Nick will have them ready to go.
Lets beat UGa first then Notre Dame can get all they want!
I almost fell out of my pew this morning when our priest made a Notre Dame reference in the opening prayer. Then he had some of them clapping and me wearing my Alabama sweatshirt, well I just snickered to myself like they have no idea what is about to hit them if we can take care of UGA.

They have been all about Alabama since we won the title in January until the loss to Texas A&M. They were all about us when we beat Florida in the SEC title game and were going to play Texas in the Rose Bowl. I'm sure people that aren't Bama fans had the same complaint about us back then. It can't be just Alabama in the news at all times I suggest you write Mal Moore and ask him to start something like the Longhorn Network if you want to see that type of thing. I don't understand why our fans think the media is against Alabama.
If God wanted me to be humble, he would have sent me to Auburn.
I would think that they would give them a ton of airtime. They are one of the most tradition rich programs in the history of college football, and they just became relevant again for the first time in two decades by punching their ticket to the national title game. As much as I dislike Notre Dame, even I must admit that they deserve some recognition right now.
Not directed at you, but I think many people believe mo money is always a good thing. More money has been good but has also led to Keeping up with the Joneses and a lot of waste. The big school athletic environment is multi million dollar facilities everywhere, while the smaller school resemble nice High Schools. Title IX creates a lot of debt, and those sports that lose money at big time schools also have multi million dollar facilities. This is television I realize, but don't give them the store.
I believe that the prospect of paying players keeps the NCAA (institutions) chugging a long at a slower pace than they could. They do not want to pay players, so they attempt to implement new things in stages
My biggest gripe has been the erosion of the prestige and tradition of the decades old Bowl game system. I was for leaving their good name and incorporating in a playoff. The smaller bowls, bring back the names that brought identity to the games, like Georgia and the Peach Bowl( ESPN was to lazy to include the sponsor's name and kept referring to the game as the Peach Bowl, or the Citrus Bowl, so the corporations did what they promised not to do and nixed the historic name of the Bowl and made it a corporate Bowl). Make sure that the major Bowl games are always a part of the playoffs and do what the networks always preach when it comes to contracts and games, Diversity. No one network should own the rights to everything. That is ripe for corruption and we will see it.
I am in the minority big time I love tradition maybe too much.
There will be more people watching and hoping Bama loses than there will be fans wanting the Tide to win. Every other conference in the country, as well as, most other SEC fanbases want us to get beat. I just hope we can get past UGA so we can find out for sure. It is funny because I lurk on a lot of rival's boards and probably 99% of the barn, LSU, and UT fans say they would root for Al Quaida before rooting for us.

The best thing to ever come out of Tennessee...I-65 heading south.
Notre Dame....ugh ugh....
Reserch the football season of 1966 and you will see just how the media is
in love with the golden domers.....
Good, let them gush. Notre Dame has earned all the credit they have gotten at this point. They went from unranked, to undefeated and guaranteed a spot in the BCSCG. This is the scenario that every media executive dreams about, so expect to keep hearing about ND for the rest of the season. Personally, I hope they continue to keep getting gushed over them, because that will make the melt down that much sweeter when the SEC is done with them.
