Bama probs but I'll be rooting for ND. They might pull off an underdog victory given they've seemingly got a lot of heart, and everyone is expecting them to lose (though rightfully so...).

I think too many people are discounting ND based solely off the fact that its Alabama.

There's a few reasons to think that Notre Dame has a good shot of knocking them off:

1. Bama's defense isn't as good as last year. They've struggled against the best teams on their schedule. LSU, A&M, and Georgia all had success throwing the ball, and LSU's QB is horrible. Bama has also struggled on third-down defense against these teams.

2. Bama's offense is above average, but nothing more. They have a good run game, but Notre Dame is the #1 statistical defense in the country and run defense is their forte. The media likes to criticize their pass defense, but when they played #11 ranked OU on the road, OU tried to take advantage and ended up throwing the ball 50 times. It didn't work, they scored 13 points.

OU's QB and receivers are better than Bama's.

3. The very nature of the game will make it a low-scoring, close game, meaning anyone can win. Both teams rely on their run game and defense. Whenever that happens, you usually end up with a 17-14 type of game. At that point, it just takes a lucky call here or a dropped pass there to change the outcome.

Honestly I think its 50/50. The best argument for Bama is that no freshman QB has ever won the championship, but we could have said the same thing about the Heisman this year, so...its really a toss-up. Bama will be favored, but I don't see them having enough firepower to make it more than a possible 10-point win.

But like you guys, I'll be rooting for Notre Dame. Brian Kelly's a boss.

Rooting for Notre Dame. If only to channel my inner-Irishman and drink a fifth of Jameson. Not that I need an excuse, but it makes me feel better about myself.

How about anytime there is a score. Because if the Irish score, I'm gonna want to do it because I'm happy. If Alabama scores, I'm gonna want one because of the soul crushing depression I will feel if Alabama wins the national title.
