"They did not dominate us," Nix said. "We just didn't play our ballgame, man. We didn't make tackles. Everything we did or had lined up should have worked."
Meet us in Pasadena next year? You aren't serious are you? Of course if there were a 16 team playoff you might make it to that. ND doesn't even belong in the top 20. There are 4 or more SEC teams that would beat ND down.
Just get over it. We have been beaten badly before also.
Oh, and don't forget the language asterisk rule.

It was Quick Sand, we know we went thru it this year but pulled out,just not quite in time.
You knock the coaches but how many tackes did they miss?
I think the cartoon ESPN played 100 times of Kelly on a bulldozer pushing a brick wall out from the goal line was way over the top. Now everyone has to be accountable for what they said before the game, especially players.
I did not think ND was that good & said so many times but was really glad we got the opportunity to play them for all the grief in the past.
Say what you will about Kelly, I thought he showed a lot of class. What do you really say when you are being embarrassed on one of the highest rated national TV shows of the year.
I hope you do make it back, we will see you there.
We pick apart quotes, post-play. A player's opinion of the game is most interesting. Particularly if he got humiliated and won't admit it. Alabama has been there, before, we know the signs of a team that will suffer a loss versus a team that will avenge a loss.
Nix also said Manny Pacquiao didn't get dominated in his last fight, but just didn't have a good night.
I doubt Notre Dame will be in the big game again any time soon, but for conversation's sake, if at the end of 2013 there are multiple teams in contention to be in the Title Game, and one of those should be Notre Dame...
Their embarrassing showing this year might get them excluded if it's a close decision. The country might be overdosing on Bama success, but at least we show up ready to play.
