ESPN CFB had on yesterday since 1936 when official polls were started, Bama 9 ND 8.
Would it surprise anybody - if the game is close - that the AP would still award their trophy to ND even if we win? I would certainly not be surprised.

it will be winner take all, and I dont think that Ohio State has a snowballs chance of getting a split...dont think enough AP voters would award it to them given they didnt get a championship game or a bowl game...of course a few less intelligent will vote for them to get their name mentioned, but not enough.
I guess some people think Bear Bryant never played on a national championship team because the AP had not been born. What a crock and how disrespectful to the men who played football with leather helmets and no face mask. In my book, which is the only one I'm interested in anyway, Bama has 14 titles and is clearly the premier program historically in college football.
John Saunders is a corporate shill who needs to be flogged. I have about 250 Alabama games on DVD. In the pre game of the 2002 OU game, Saunders declared it a match between OU's 7 national titles and our six.
Why? Silly rabbit, because in 2002 the SEC contract was with CBS and the Big 12 with ABC - therefore, the Big 12 HAD to have more. But this same John Saunders informed us all on "The Sports Reporters" telecast of January 10, 2010 that our 13th title was "only" our eighth. Apparently, we fired Shula after he won a national title between 2002-2008.
So make no mistake - the hype masters will be worse than Vince McMahon at declaring this a war to settle the tie that doesn't exist. He is a slimy individual.
DISCLAIMER: I hereby reserve the right to discuss any game on the Alabama schedule I wish, at any time during the season, as I am not a part of the Crimson Tide football program. I am simply a fan who has no impact outside of the money I provide the athletic department via ticket and memorabilia purchases and the energy I can provide when I attend the games. ©2009-2014, crimsonaudio
