CTL: BCS Championship game men among boys
Notre Dame and Alabama. Kicked off the national championship game last night around 630 local time and honestly. That was the closest the game was tied got the ball to ran away from the Irish from the get go. They drove 82 yards in the first three minutes to seven nothing lead after Notre Dame three and out the tide rolled 61 yards and took a fourteen nothing league. With games. Was over. Alabama rolls to a second straight national title the third in the last four years. 4214. -- the final -- SEC seventh straight. Championship for Notre Dame their dream of a national title came crashing down and are very left players like Theo Riddick. In tears after the game. This -- yeah. It wouldn't. Be the big thing. -- that really hit me look. Mean who's who was working -- brilliant this flu and this. Will be you know -- who used to do to win. In the it's kind of -- -- up. I -- spots on the game. Wow me they were they were just men among boys. Don't look at -- well -- a better team than Notre Dame I don't think anyone. How you do at any point that talent this just a lot better. But in addition to that Notre Dame just did not play well at all you know they had played an inferior opponent. On that night with that kind of performance they -- lost that game too. It just didn't have a. From what are almost lost to several inferior opponents -- -- -- -- they spread by Purdue they got officials gave helped them beat Pittsburgh Stanford was obviously not an inferior opponent officials' help to him about him -- Mean very out of the first quarter last night holding the was left in the interest and my brother Brett must -- would say some in my agent at times girlfriend that was -- a fire that's. Got out of college got above that network today. What do Stacey King always say about Derrick -- bigger stronger faster I mean that's it no not -- a -- too fast too good at this late -- with a better team by far and if if I had any guts I would have put some money on the game last night but I don't have any guts. I missed a lot of tackles. Because they missed tackle but they also missed a lot of tackles -- I don't think we anticipated the speed of the people who are coming up and I just think. That the angle they were taking was completely wrong so people coming up a much faster. And I thought well I also believe that this was. More reason why there should be a playoff system because had they had it -- an eight team or sixteen team playoff. -- -- and it's it's not from the national title game they were sorely outclassed. But if they -- the four team playoff. You still might have seen the same match up because that would have been Oregon against Alabama and one semi final Kansas State against Notre Dame in the other semi final. And it's debatable Notre Dame would have beat Kansas State. So you could have possibly say -- -- -- if you put Notre Dame in the SEC this year there -- about their seventh. They're seventh. They know not beat Georgia they'll be Florida correlate it LSU you don't beat Alabama they don't -- south yeah around Florida and Texas NM there -- you gotta give him credit though they won the game to run their schedule they did what they were supposed to do. He surprise a lot of people it was a good season for Notre Dame runs you have to you have to appreciate what they did and you're not appreciating what they did I appreciate what your hate him. I'm not a hater -- it and I'm not a hater how to how to get to the next level no I mean it's it's nice to be the runner up it's better to be the champion so if you go. Compete with an Alabama or Georgia I want whoever. How do you get to that next -- Notre Dame nearly made history last night for all the wrong reasons check out this daily -- they're 28 point loss the second worst five passes. Team in the ball game to -- O'Leary going back following -- 36 the worse than 97 Sugar Bowl Florida State roster is 32. Florida fan I have three of the biggest wins on this list last night last year and the 93 Sugar Bowl win over Miami. Interest think stuff how to needs to the next level. They have to recruit better athletes. What's interesting is so does everyone else has to do -- absolutely -- and the Big Ten is considered you know the same as Notre Dame slower. Midwest guys that -- etc. but Urban Meyer is from the southeast conference and I'm gonna be really curious to see. What kind of athletes he recruits over the next couple of years should he get to a championship. And the question is obviously missed the Southern Conference teams are all playing a lot of white teams with speed sizing and greatness. Yeah skills. And even Hermann Maier in the Big Ten is not gonna play in the six or seven teams -- gonna look like you know consistently Georgia Florida Alabama Auburn comments on a couple of values and down. Well right did the schedule clearly helps an SEC team prepare for a big game. I think the other thing -- to -- You get a greater concentration of good football players in the southeast it seems like Florida every year has you know number one in terms of all about the top recruits in. They're all down there and and they tend to go to those schools because college football is. Is god in the southeast since the one part of the country where there and with the exception there is some of Favre and essentially it's a one part of the country where there's no competition from professional football. And and it's just huge. Doesn't Notre Dame already have supposedly the number one -- rated recruiting class coming in next year -- and you know they've had a lot of great recruiting class it in terms of how the reading but I guess that doesn't always OK so she.
Notre Dame didn't spend a whole lot of time within shouting distance of Alabama, proving that the Crimson Tide were just men among boys Monday night - 1/8
