    Re: ESPN Gushing over Notre Dame

    We have all heard how they have played a tougher schedule. So I went through the record of the teams they have played versus ours. The combined record of the teams they have played is 79-62. Ours is 70-72. Not that big a difference and we still have one more game to play. Versus Michigan our one common opponent, they won I believe it was 13-7 and we killed them 41-14. Anyway just food for thought.

    Big A Re: ESPN Gushing over Notre Dame

    The sports media has not always been in love with ND. If that were true they would had given the the National Champ. in 93 which they deserved, but they awarded it to FSU. Which ND had defeated that yr 31-24 I believe. Because the media love toward Bobby Bowden was much greater than ND love. In fact except for the Sporting News,Lou Holtz and Brent Musberger, The media has been openly critical of ND for having too high academic standards,not belonging to a conference,having their own TV contract, being invited to bowls in which they were outmatched and for being a once mighty but now average program that is over exposed. Since the mid 1990's ND has been more media whipping boy than darling so let them have their time in the sun. I still think we win by at least ten due to our recent history of being there before and our overall team speed. Go Bama and RTR.

    I don't mind them getting lots of media attention, in fact I hope it swells their heads all the way to January. However, I did think it was ridiculous that ESPN all but said that God put them in the NC game. Destiny's Darlings? lol.

    Re: ESPN Gushing over Notre Dame

    why wouldn't ESPN gush over notre dumb? They are one of the biggest brands in CFB, and they are ranked #1. ESPN would need to fire their entire staff if someone made the decision NOT to talk about them.

    ND finished the season by beating 9 bowl-eligible teams. Bama has beaten 5, Georgia 4 (You guys will have 6 after next weekend). We have a tough schedule. Sagarin has us only behind Florida in top ten, I believe.

    Either way, I agree ESPN is all over us. But let's not forget, ESPN would be all over any team that will potentially challenge the SEC and their dominance of NC's the past decade. If it was Ohio State and Urban, would you still say the same things? B/c they would get the love. If it was Oregon, would you say the same? B/c Chip would get the love. And Schneider would get coach of the year.

    It is ND, and we are obviously a polarizing team. I agree that we have been getting much love, but its been 20 years.

    Re: ESPN Gushing over Notre Dame

    I also hope that we can beat Georgia to set up the national title game with Notre Dame. That will be huge. Not to mention, we won't go to a BCS bowl game if we lose. It seems that Florida is going to get the Sugar Bowl spot, so it is either SEC champs and national title game or a much less distinguished bowl game. I hope we whip UGA like a rented mule. If we do, I will be happy listening to all of the Notre Dame love for a month.

    The good thing is that "what the media thinks" has no bearing on anything other than irritating the people who let them get under their skin. Notre Dame hasn't been relevant for 20 years - I have no problem letting them have their moment in the sun. They've earned it. If they get to play UGA, they may even get another National Title. If they play us though, they can forget about it......... I'll take a rested Alabama team and give them 20 points.

    We owe them big time for 1987 when Bill Curry threw up on himself and Tim Brown ran all over us.

    Re: ESPN Gushing over Notre Dame

    Let them keep talking. All we got to do is take care of business. I hope they remember everything they're saying when it's all over with. I got a feeling Bama is going to come out snot-slinging-mad in the next two games.
