The media outlets are a business. They aren't going to do anything but what they think will heighten the draw to the game. Some outlets are going heavy on the tradition angle whilst others are shouting ND's merits as loudly as possible to make the game as attractive as possible. The truth is, even Vegas has no clue. Vegas sure was wrong about the A&M game. Further more, Bama's wins in '92 weren't the kind of wins that impressed people. They slugged it out and while Miami may have been the more talented team we all know what happened that day. I witnessed it from the Bama endzone, "we wanted it more." All of this to say that while ND's stats aren't great they are undefeated, played some quality opponents, and found a way past their poor performances. We all thought that Bama was going to hand it to UGA and perhaps we should have but stats don't win games. If we expect ND to come out and roll over you can forget it. We need to be expecting a dog fight.
