Been enjoying your board for some time now so I thought I'd register and throw myself in the mix. Lifelong ND man but also a huge college football fan in general (they don't always go together as I'm sure you know from your own massive fan base). Hope that puts me in position to provide some unique insight around these parts. Or maybe not. You be the judge....either way, should be a good time.
Threads re Louis Nix v Barrett Jones, Alabama's WR v ND's Secondary and, of course, Alabama's Run Game v ND's Front 7 have been particularly interesting for me. Don't necessarily agree with everything I've read but that's to be expected and I respect the fact that most of you take time to provide logical arguments and / or facts to support your views.
I'm obviously no expert on Bama football but based on what I've seen (Tide games against Michigan, Arkansas, Tenn, Miss St, LSU, TA&M and Georgia), this Alabama team is not your best of the past 4 years. Of course, they don't have to be in order to beat ND. At the same time, ND doesn't have to be better than Alabama - just better on Jan. 7. And there's the rub
Anyway, fire away if you have questions that you think I might be able to answer and I'll do my best. In the meantime, I'll insert myself wherever I can be most annoying
Ah, I kid....Go Irish
