    Alabama wins if... Notre Dame wins if...

    I've head this question asked a lot on ESPN. So what do the smartest football fans on the planet think?

    I think we just have to play our game. Run the ball with some play action pass. I would keep running until they prove they can stop Eddie and TJ.
    So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. - 2 Corinthians 4:18

    Alabama wins if it has more total points than Notre Dame.

    The only way ND wins is if Alabama pulls a 1987 Miami and has 7 turnovers.

    Bama wins if we resist the urge to play like a Pac-12 offense.

    Irish win if AJ gets Colt McCoyed.

    Alabama wins if...
    --- We get off the bus. That's figuratively, of course, and not literally - though almost. If we hit any sort of stride on offense - scoring at least two TDs - in the first half and our defense/special teams don't give up more than one or two really big plays, i.e. 40+ yards, in the first half then we win.

    Notre Dame wins if...
    --- They are able to win the turnover battle by a margin of at least 3 or 4 as well as get at least 2 or 3 really big plays, i.e. 40+ yards, on offense/special teams.





    For all the Notre Dame hype and "awesome" defensive statistics being bandied about in the media, the simple truth is that Notre Dame is very lucky to be in this game and they are at least somewhat overrated. Now, don't get me wrong - we're a bit lucky to be in this game ourselves. It takes at least a little bit of luck for anyone to reach the BCS National Championship Game. The difference is that we aren't overrated. Notre Dame needs help to win this game. The only way we lose tonight is to beat ourselves.
    I have yet to figure out why common sense and common courtesy are called common.

    Alabama wins if it shows up and plays Alabama football.
    Notre Dame wins if hell freezes over and pigs fly on a cold day in hell when chickens have teeth.

    Actually that was the '86 Miami team in the '87 Fiesta Bowl.

    This is something everybody who invokes the "look at 86 Penn St, 02 Ohio State, 05 Texas" argument overlooks: those teams forced 7 and 6 turnovers and I would note Texas won the turnover battle but Gholson ain't Vince Young.

    Re: Alabama wins if... Notre Dame wins if...

    We win if AJ has a decent game and we use Eddie & TJ to their fullest
    ND wins if Golson has a Mettenberger day and we lose track of Eifert

    Alabama wins if: We run for 140 yards... Saban teams are 50-0 at that point.

    ND wins if: They find consistent running room, and see +2 or more in turnovers. Only close games we've had we've been negative in turnover margin... Also, Golson has to pull a Garcia/Mettenberger...

    ND might win if Golson has the game of his life. Unfortunately, that happens sometimes when teams play Alabama but even then, teams don't always win.

    Steven Garcia played like a pro for USCe in one game only. Cam, like it or not, was a great college QB. Johnny Manziel is amazing. Jefferson played above his usual game. Mettenburger played the game of his life against Bama this year and got beat anyway, but the game was a lot closer than I wanted it to be.

    When Bama loses, it's usually because the opposing QB played great. I've watched Golson play a lot this year and he has his moments. He also looked like a freshman a lot. What worries me is the month of practice he's had. The guy has plenty of big game experience, as much as AJ had last year, and our guys need to assume he's going to be on his game tonight.
