    Everything we did or had lined up should have worked.
    Yes, everything works. On paper.

    Welcome to the real world, bub.

    So, we took her home.

    When you give up 7 ypc and the guy you're going against is a 300 pounder on a severely injured foot, you REALLY got owned!! Not as often as I'm sure we wanted to do, but BJ took on Nix 1 on 1 for a good # of plays.

    To give ND some props, the rest of their players and the coach were classy and respectful in their comments.

    Even their fans are in denial. From Irish Envy: This was frustrating to watch. Bama was a better team but not by that much.

    Also could you imagine this. ND actually won't receive rings or anything for this season because they didn't win anything. They went 12-0 in the regular season, but they don't play a championship game so now all they have is a 12-1 record. I guess we would have been in the same boat last year if we didn't beat LSU.

    Wasn't Nix the poor kid they had to carry off a stretcher after Lacy hit him near the sideline?

    Heck, they can't even pull a Les and put #2 Nationally on their rings... #3/4 Nationally just doesn't command the same respect

    Well, to be fair to Nix, they did limit us to only 2 RBs with more than 100 yards rushing. And there was that one time AJ was worried about getting hit...wait, that was by Barrett; never mind. Back to Nix, there were only 15-20 plays where our RBs ran right through the part of the line he *coughs* "controlled" *clears throat*. And there were a few times he didn't end up a play picking turf out of the back of his helmet. So I s'pose one could argue we didn't dominate them.

    ...if one has no hint of logical thought process happening.

    Precisely, playing for ND has got to be one of the most empty and elusive goals out there. Those kids have nothing to show for their hardwork if they dont win the National Championship. If ND doesnt think that doesnt get used against them on the recruiting trail - they really are delirious. Their absolute refusal to join a conference - hurts them more than they know. I expect those players last night finally figured it out...

    The hardest hit AJ took all night was from Barrett...

    Okay Nix, "they" did not dominate you. But Barrett Jones owned you. I don't remember seeing one double team all night. Krymsonman

    You really are giving them too much credit!
