    Not a very good analogy friend. What is and what isn't is a little bit different than how much talent a football team has. So, no, I don't get what you're saying at all. They did not play the games I was speaking of, so what exactly is your point??? They played a bunch of ****ty teams and won the right to get they're ass handed to them by a real football team. Congrats!

    You said IF. I was referring to what IF means. Essentially nothing in the aspect we're using it, in a past tense. IF ND played in the SEC they'd have 3 losses.

    The FACTS we can look at is ND doesn't play in the SEC and when their schedule began, it had a handful of top 15 teams (including #1) and they won all of them. I'm not talking about the talent you think they do or do not have. Just the IF factor of the argument, in the aspect my analogy is very relevant.

    And for the record, I'm not an ND fan. Couldn't care less about the the winner of the game.

    From an article written just before this season started....

    the SEC plays other BCS conferences about equally. Witness the record since the start of the BCS era in 1998:

    SEC vs. PAC-12 regular season: 10-12
    SEC vs. PAC-12 bowl games: 1-0
    SEC vs. Big 12 regular season: 6-10
    SEC vs. Big 12 bowl games: 21-8
    SEC vs. ACC regular season: 42-36
    SEC vs. ACC bowl games: 16-9
    SEC vs. Big 10 regular season: 7-4
    SEC vs. Big 10 bowl games: 19-19
    SEC vs. Big East regular season: 16-15
    SEC vs. Big East bowl game: 3-8

    However the SEC has won over 50% of the National Championships in that time. Certainly very impressive teams at the top.

    Without question the SEC is loaded from too to bottom. My only point was that the IRISH started the season with a hard schedule and the won out. They left no ifs in the hands of anyone.

    I don't see ND keeping the NC game within 24 points. Alabama's run game is ridiculous.

    If Manti Malieiedjfd Louis Teo's name was John Thompson no one would know who he is. However, the media liked his name and have lacked true superstars this year to get behind, so they turned him into a heisman candidate.

    You're arguing semantics while I'm arguing football. Hypothetical matches, believe it or not, are discussed at length in sports to compare the talent of two teams that did not or will not play one another. That is all I was doing, which is perfectly rational to do without having to discover whether your aunt has a dick or not. I'm not a hater, I'm just calling it like I see it.

    Looks like more haters have joined the discussion...

    Not too mention has been skewing his stats on National TV to pump his name up. Manziels stats are way more impressive than Teo's yet ESPN skews them to make Teo (and C. Klein) seem like more favorable picks. If you watch live ESPN games the past 2 weeks you have seen some of these; they just dont want a FRESHMAN player to win it.

    The segment yesterday morning where they used Klein's numbers against teams "Ranked when they played" then Manziel's numbers against teams "Ranked right now" was some of the worst stat skewing I've ever seen on that network. Then one goes on to say this little gem:

    "But you have to understand, Johnny Manziel is absolutely terrible on Wednesday night games this year. He's completing ZERO PERCENT OF HIS PASSES ON WEDNESDAY NIGHTS!!!"

    No, no I'm not at all....smh

    Tao is getting the spotlight bc 1 he's good, 2 ND is undefeated and 3 he lost both his mother and GF to cancer right before the season started. Within a few weeks if I'm not mistaken.

    Well, let's just agree to disagree on what parameters we choose to judge a football team's talent. Not worth all this back and forth, anyways.....

    ND is a talented team, they really are, I just want to see how they perform against elite comp before I pass final judgement, didn't mean to seem like such a hater.

    We will see, game isn't too far away.

    I don't want to start the debate again but I just read that the national championship between ND and Bama will be one of the highest draws since there is so much history at both schools. What is everyone's thought?

    Also Bamas schedule was ranked the 38th toughest in NCAA football this year where as NDs was 30th.

    Should be an awesome game I think.

    The game will def be a HUGE draw for the NCAA and the BCS, and I'm sure the powers that be could not be happier.

    As for the schedules, despite their overall ranking, bama has played the tougher teams in LSU, TA&M, and Georgia(not regular season, but still). Bama still had an easy ride compared to some other teams.

    Collegefootball poll ....

    This one has nd at 8 and Bama at 15 I guess there are a lot of variances. Bama did have a tougher road. But NDs trip wasn't easy lol

    I was told that according to the SOS indicator that the BCS uses, Alabama had the 53rd strongest SOS. They honestly played noone other than A&M, LSU, and Georgia this year that even had a pulse. Not that they wouldn't have been competitive against whoever they played. I really wish Saban would retire, he has established a machine over there in Shi-TTown.

    Went to the independence bowl yesterday, and man, what a disappointment. The weather just wasn't on us La boys' side in that game. We just looked off all game.

    Game changing play. Knocked any wind we had left out of us. Our QB must have thought his receivers were all 7' tall, cuz a lot of his passes were way up there.

    Next year..... lol.

    As much **** as I talked earlier this season, I have to say I would not be surprised to see ND pull off the win here. I'm eating crow right now with all my SEC dominance talk.

    LoL where are all the ND fan boys now?? As true to my word I am turning the game off at halftime w/ND down by 28. Lets hope they lose 70-0.

    Roll Tide and to all a SEC good night! Thanks and Gig Em!
