    Yes, that helped. I was sorry to see him go down.

    McElroy played Texas with broken ribs, so who knows if a healthy McCarron would have done just as well? Doesn't matter anyway, since 2009 is in the books.

    Could Bama's backup QB win a national championship game? Maybe. He's gotten game experience this year, and has a good running game to help him out. Hope we don't have to find out.

    Greg was 6/11 for only 58 yards. Trent and Mark were our stars for the game, so I bet McCarron could have done fine as well. We exposed the "rush defense" of Texas with 205 yards.

    You can't disregard half your team and hope to cover up their shortcomings with the other half, whether it's offense or defense. Especially since they're on the field almost half the time if not more. Balance is the key...

    Let me ask you this smart guy? How do you think Alabama would do in a NC game having to play a green freshman? Answer that? Let's say McCarron got hurt on the first series in the NC game and was forced to play a true freshman how do you think they would do? How do you think that "vaunted D" would hold up with constant 3 and outs and turnovers?

    I know you would win anyway
    Look here partner. To keep from wasting all of our time and getting this thread locked. Let's just cut to the chase so we can all move on. You're not going to get anyone on this board to concede that Notre Dame is better than either one of the two teams playing tomorrow in the SECCG. Seeing that your team has been irrelevant for 20+ years, odds are ND is going to have to string together more than one good season and actually win a big bowl game before you re-gain any pre-game respect. We had to do it to re-gain any type of national respect, and so will you. One 12-0 regular season just ain't gonna all of a sudden take time all the way back to y'alls glory years. It is a different landscape of college football. Just as we were told in 2007. And you know what, it's true. It is harder to win, harder to recruit and harder to stay on top. We understand you are very proud of your team, as you should be. But in y'alls 20+ years Rip Van winkle sleep other teams have laid down some very deep roots of winning and winning consistently. The SEC has had three specifically in Bama, Florida and LSU. Again, all those stats you've laid down doesn't mean anything to us. Because we've heard it seven other times going into BCSNCG. We've heard it before. It is nothing more than a waiting game for y'all now. It will either be Jawga or Bama.

    But to sit here and say y'alls record against such and such type team has absolutely no bearing on how the BCSNCG will go. Again, many of SEC team heard the same thing many times over. Stats showing how many points such and such had put up and against such and such defense and so on. And 7 out of 7 times it didn't mount to a hill of beans. The crystal ball ended up back in the SEC. The game is played on the field. Not on paper.


    It is a telling sign when ESPN cuts to a shot in a local South Bend bar full of Irish fans and they are singing "Too legit to quit" in celebration of beating USCw.

    Jeez....I'm already tired of Notre Dame being relevant again for 5 minutes just because of this guy. Rest assured, they're going to quickly remind everyone just how nice it's been the past 20 years or so with the domers checking in at the champ sports and sun bowls.

    The media (specifically Brent Mushberger) has been waiting on either USC or Notre Dame to resurrect to yesteryear so they can flood the air waves and tv screens with how awesome they are. For a lot of folks in the media and across the country. It's been like eating a doo-doo sandwich for the last six years having to watch the SEC lift the crystal six consecutive times.

    You just mentioned the unmentionable!!!

    1) Maclom Williams - poor guy, TD pass hit him right in the hands. Colt couldn't hep with that.

    2) Colt don't play no defense, so 37 points are still going on the board.

    3) They had first and goal from the four and got 3 points.

    Objective Comparison of the Schedules and Stats of ND, Alabama, UGA

    Buzz, I remember similar conversations with Tejas fans about their vaunted #1 Run Defense. How much can you tell about your run defense when you never face a running team. ND will get their chance to be the one that stops the SEC, but just on the eye test they will have to play their best game all year to be close, much less win. Mantei will get tired against UGA or Bama I guarantee.

    All these Notre Dame fans here telling us how good they are and how they belong...
    Brings to mind one question, Are you trying to convince us,, or are you trying to convince yourselves?????


    Sure seems like the second.

    This thread has developed into what I have come to expect when trying to discuss football with almost any of the domer nation... Like playing pick-up sticks with your but cheeks... very frustrating. Given time their "Holier than thou" attitude will always come out!

    We get it, Bama or UGA is doomed to fall to the dome.
