Have you looked at Alabama's receiving stats? There are 5 players with more than 4 catches, 4 of them with more than 18 catches.
Don't get me wrong, I think ND has a good team this year. I just don't think they are as good as Bama or UGA (or Florida, or A&M, or LSU, or USCe). Good thing is, we will find out. I just hope it's Bama that gets the shot.
