    Big A Re: Latest Bama News 1/7/13 (Finally) BCS National Championship Game Edition

    Alabama's 2012 Most Valuable Player, as voted by his teammates, has not yet been an every-down player for the Crimson Tide. On the official depth chart heading into Monday's BCS National Championship Game against Notre Dame, C.J. Mosley is not listed on the first line. Alabama's starting Will linebacker is listed as Nico Johnson or Mosley. But Mosley asserted himself as the Tide's top defensive playmaker this year right from the get-go. On Sept. 1, the junior intercepted a pass from Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson and returned it 16 yards for a touchdown, putting 'Bama's season-opening rout of the Wolverines even further out of reach. Twelve games later, Mosley bookended his MVP campaign by making the most important play of Alabama's season. He jumped up and tipped Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray's last-second pass intended for a receiver in the end zone; it fell into the hands of another player inbounds, causing the clock to run out, preserving a 32-28 victory and setting up a BCS title clash against the Irish.

    There are two Nick Saban storylines in this national championship game, and together they define him. The first is that, with a victory, Saban can stake his claim to being the best coach in college football history. It would be his fourth national title in his last eight years of college coaching: He won in 2003 at LSU and in 2009 and 2011 at Alabama. (He coached in the NFL in 2005 and 2006.)

    Two of college football’s storied programs will meet on Jan. 7 in the most-anticipated title matchup of the BCS era. For Alabama, a trip to the national championship has almost become routine. The Crimson Tide is making their third appearance in the BCS Championship in the last four seasons and are 2-0 under Nick Saban in this setting. Alabama is also looking to become the first back-to-back champion of the BCS era. On the other sideline represents a return to glory. Notre Dame is back in a BCS bowl for the first time since 2007 and returned to the national title conversation for the first time since 1993 this year. The Fighting Irish was the only bowl eligible team to finish with an unbeaten record in 2012, while linebacker Manti Te’o finished second in the Heisman Trophy voting. After finishing 8-5 in back-to-back seasons, coach Brian Kelly has Notre Dame back on track to national prominence once again. The Fighting Irish are on a roll on the recruiting trail, so don’t expect Notre Dame to slip back into mediocrity anytime soon. These two teams have met six times, with Notre Dame owning a 5-1 series edge. The Crimson Tide and Fighting Irish have not played since 1987, when Notre Dame claimed a 37-6 victory in South Bend. Alabama’s only victory against the Fighting Irish came in 1986.

    We've come to the end of an extremely fun picks season here on the SEC blog. There was no sophomore slump for the ATL Kid, while the old vet took a major hit to his picking credibility. I just want to thank all of the fans out there who supported me this season. Being on the road and seeing all the love from readers who were looking for me to dethrone Chris was a great sight. I sensed that Chris was reeling early in the season (see the Florida-Tennessee game) and I pounced early and often.

    Readers suggested some alternative pregame movie titles like "Crimson Tide," "Patton," "Remember the Titans," "Silence of the Lambs," "Pootie Tang" and others.
