First I hope I'm doing this correctly. My first post. I predict a score of Alabama 34, Notre Dame 13. I believe we have the better of the two qb's, and I could see ND trying to stop the run early. AJ can throw over the top of their defense with our recievers, and then ND will play back off the run and we run the ball more in the second half. I have try to go back and see some of the ND stats and highlights. I believe our defense will slow or stop them in the red zone.
I say 31-17 Bama with the 31 of course. Johnny Football was on Jay Leno last night and predicted Bama winning 28-17.

Early on I thought we'd rout them...
I guess I'm guilty of buying into all the ND hype we've been subjected to lately. You know, their impenetrable goal line defense, the developing mobile QB, an unstoppable TE. The undeniable magical season.
But then I remember...we have a darn good team ourselves. We're built to win at the collegiate level. Strong from the inside out. Most importantly, our players and coaching staff have been there, done that.
You can scheme your brains out, out-muscle and out-talent the opposition - but you cannot manufacture experience. Alabama has that in spades.

Hmmm... I wonder...

Not really trying to start a debate here I guess, but all of you guys who are apparently expecting us to score 28+ on Notre Dame, I just don't see it.
Given the prowess of the ND front seven, that won't happen unless AJ McCarron plays far better than he did against LSU, aTm, and UGA. We won't be running for 350+ yards against ND like we did in the SECCG against UGA, so if McCarron continues to struggle for much of the game, we're just going to have to scrape together enough points to win a low-scoring contest.
