I go back through all the Bear years and up to the present. Honestly, this just doesn't have that feel to it. I'm not saying we couldn't lose to ND but I just don't see them as formidable as previous national championships. Having said all that I think this Bama team has a lot to overcome....they have been here three of the last four years and complacency can set in. For this team to come out and take care of business may be a bigger feat than the previous championships. I've watched this year's ND team play several games and I just cannot ascribe the same "worry factor" to them as previous NC teams we have played. That may work in ND's favor (let's hope not). I'm not trying to poo poo ND or what they have achieved but I think Oregon or Texas A&M would give us much more trouble than ND will. From the standpoint of history it may have more significance than anything. I still sting from losses to ND in the past. If our young players could borrow my feelings for a while they would understand the significance better than they may now. All these things aside this Bama team has a chance to make history Monday night.
