    especially our own Jeff. I don't think the ND team will be as much of a challenge as that set of Dawgs. Damn good game right to the end. The Irish have been surprising teams all year, but somehow I don't expect that will happen this time.

    I went to a game party yesterday. Everyone there was pulling for Georgia while wearing purple and gold. All of them (the menfolks anyway) said after the game that as much as they hate Notre Dame, they hate Saban more and wouldn't pull for them.

    We have split loyalties down here being on the Georgia-Alabama line. We pull for either team depending upon who they're playing (add in the fact that I'm an LSU fan being born in Baton Rouge) and you can really have conflicting emotions. I pull for LSU if they're playing Alabama, pulled for Georgia against Tennessee, pulled for Alabama against Georgia, but would not have been disappointed whichever team won. Love SEC football.

    While I am not a big 'bama fan, I hope they beat the stuffing out of ND. I really dislike them.

    My daughter, the fair weather fan, had to leave the room for most of the first half and part of the second, until the Bama offensive line started tearing holes in the Dawg defense. Then she came back in the room to watch the balance of the game.

    I figured it to be about a touchdown difference in the final score. Georgia looked good and both coaches made some poor decisions.

    I can understand the desire to succeed, but the Georgia player who caught that last pass would have done better to let it drop and stop the clock. It looked to me as though he slipped, but I am still not sure that he would have made it into the endzone. But we will never know and in the end he did the only thing he really could do. Robert Lester saved that score by deflecting the pass.

    I'm not one to talk smack and I'm not starting now, but it will so delight me if the Crimson Tide is able to curb-stomp that team from South Bend.

    I've never understood the primal hatred of Saban by the LSU fandom, given that he did not leave Baton Rouge to go to Tuscaloosa. By the time that he realized that the NFL was not his place to be, LSU already a pretty good coach. Would LSU have let the Mad Hatter go if Saban had sauntered back, asking for his old job?

    Y'all would feel the same way if it was the other way around. Or if he went to Auburn.

    What are all you guys talking about? What is a bowl game? It's recruiting season!

    I don't know why LSU hates Saban outside of the fact he coaches for Alabama, but while I accept he is a very good coach, I don't like him at all. Something about standing in front of the press in Miami and stating that he has no intention of leaving, and then running off to sign somewhere else that rubbed me the wrong way.

    I don't like ND also. They have not really been relevant since I began getting into the sport back in the early 90's. I will give them credit for one thing though. They are one of very few teams who did not schedule FCS opponents. While playing "Big Games" against the likes of Michigan and USC (4 and 5 loss teams respectfully) they got a boost in SoS by playing Navy and Purdue instead of somebody too crappy like a Western Carolina. See what I did there? Couldn't help it, but they are a 1 win FCS team.

    I hope Notre Dame has fun while they can. After moving to the ACC without actually moving to the ACC, I doubt a selection committee will take them serious once the playoff format begins and takes schedule into account. Is playing Pitt really worth dropping Michigan?

    Will be rooting for the Tide, but this is the last time. If they go 4 National Titles in 5 years, I'm just gonna have to start hating them on principle.
