There is justice! Anyone here old enough to remember 77? ND went into the bowls at #5, beat Texas in the Cotton Bowl and was declared NC. Bama (#2 or 3, I forget which) kicked OSU's butt in the Sugar Bowl but ended up #2.
Would love to have seen ND drop even further, but "it is what it is." And as long as the Tide is on top, I'm good.
