    JessN is the best in the business. He is objective but the homerism of the ND writer is downright funny.

    Wow! That game analysis from the ND homer is about as one sided as you could get.

    Where's the objectivity? Or have I been spoiled?!

    Why do I feel like I need to check my checkbook and my garage to make sure I don't somehow now own some random, old, ugly, used car after reading that?

    I have yet to figure out why common sense and common courtesy are called common.

    I couldn't make it pass the comparison from the 2011 to 2012 defenses.

    Based on member response I won't bother opening the article link.

    Not to be a gump here, but that's a god awful preview filled with nothing but conjecture and a couple of fancy words mixed in amongst a bunch of gold dome homer. Did this come from their equivalent of Bleacher Report? Is this guy syndicated, too?

    Not enough Latin, IMO.

    Alabama's 2012 defense may not be as good as 2011, but then again Notre Dame's offense scores a little more than half of what 2011 LSU did, too.

    Furthermore, the November offense improved by playing bad defenses like BC and Wake. It took three overtimes to score 20 points against Pitt.

    And this use of Oklahoma as a standard is amusing. OU has a QB with a mental problem (once he messes up) and who throws first. Keep in mind despite the one-sided stats the game was close until the final 3 minutes.

    And it's one thing to say "we can cover Yeldon, Lacy, AJ and Cooper" - its another to say you can handle all four at the same time. Plus if you're gonna talk about Kelly & lower level playoffs, don't you mention Saban's record with 2 weeks to prep or in title games including SEC title?

    Re: Duranko’s Digest: Notre Dame – Alabama Preview (from UHND.com)

    I think one of the valid points in there that's being somewhat overlooked is that ND's offense (and Golson, in particular) has been on an upward arc over the course of the season, making some of those "raw" stats we've been citing not as relevant as they might seem.

    He's right about Eifert being the key for them. He's a mismatch waiting to happen, but I'm confident Saban/Smart will come up with a plan to at least contain him.
