    Opps got into the Bama Red zone 29 times all year long
    Notre Dame 38
    Oregon 51
    Georgia 46
    Florida 39
    LSU 36

    Here is the link to last year's Red Zone Defense---

    Last year we had only 19 drives in the red zone all year long

    LSU was ranked 100th in Red Zone Defense Last Year?
    WOW!

    Raj: How do you know that?
    Howard: He was Italian, it's a reasonable assumption.
    Raj: Dude, can you even open your mouth without saying a cultural stereotype?
    Howard: I'm sorry Galileo drank diet sprite!

    Actually, they finished 8th if you carry it out more than two decimal places.

    I tried to tell everyone that Notre Dame's vaunted defense hadn't faced anything at all like what they were going to face against us but they wouldn't listen.


    Notre Dame's defense has stellar numbers through 12 games. After playing us, their defensive statistics were noticeably altered:

    Notre Dame's Defensive Statistics
    Before Alabama After Alabama
    Category Rank Value Rank Value
    Total Defense 5 286.83 7 305.46
    Rushing Defense 4 92.42 11 105.69
    Passing Defense 21 194.42 25 199.77
    Passing Efficiency Defense 11 105.48 16 111.36
    Scoring Defense 1 10.33 2 12.77
    Red Zone Defense 1 63.64% 8 68.42%


    Like I said - Notre Dame's defense was vastly overrated coming into this game.
    I have yet to figure out why common sense and common courtesy are called common.

    I have never understood why it is "greed" to want to keep the money you've earned but not greed to want to take somebody else's money.

    Did anyone notice in the 1st quarter of the game ESPN showed a shot in the press box of the ND DC while mentioning that he was a leading candidate for the Syracuse HC job? Then in the 3rd quarter, ESPN had a scroll across the bottom of the screen that Syracuse had named their own DC the new HC. Talking about your fortunes changing so quickly.

    It's remarkable that ND's defense only gave up 10 TDs all year. Then Bama scored 6 in one game.

    Makes you wonder if we didn't run out of gas to an extent. We dominated teams early in the season and although we continued winning, with exception TAM, we looked much more beatable. In this game, we didn't make many mistakes.

    On the Syracuse job, I trolled some of the ND forums, and prior to the game, Diaco was superior to any other coach on the field. The domers expected him to have his pick of jobs, not limited to Syracuse.

    I don't think it was gas, I think we were banged up. The six weeks off greatly helped us.
