    I have a question. Maybe someone has pointed it out and I missed it. But is í12 ND Defense better than í11 LSU Defense? I ask because Iím hearing a lot of the experts say Bamaís offense hasnít dropped off last year versus this year on offense. Not saying it will turn out the same but I looked it up and here is the comparison. And LSU absolutely had some big NFL talent on the field last year. I believe much more than ND.

    2011 LSU Defense
    Total Defense 2nd (262 yds/gm)
    Scoring Defense 2nd (11 pts/gm)
    Rushing Defense 5th (90 yds/gm)
    Passing Defense 8th (171 yds/gm)


    2012 ND Defense
    Total Defense 6th (287 yds/gm)
    Scoring Defense 1st (10 pts/gm)
    Rushing Defense 4th (92 yds/gm)
    Passing Defense 21st (194 yds/gm)


    The big thing that sticks out to me is that LSU was much better versus the pass with the likes of Reed, Claiborne, and company. Not to mention their pass rush. If the Bama OLine is truly the best in the country and AJ has a great game they should prevail.

    I really wish he would get on a sports radio talk show after the game so I could call in just bash the hell out of him for being such a homer. I'm not a guy that talks smack, but IDC what age he is, he's way too stubborn.

    If we could run against LSU like we did, we can run on anyone. I expect a lot of draw plays and screens. I just hope Yeldon tucks that ball tight because Te'o looks like one of those guys who would punch it out quickly

    Lou Holtz is the dumbest college football "expert" I have ever heard. His pick ND wins 24-10. Mark May has us winning by three touchdowns

    I wish I would've seen that. I have a lot of respect for Nico. My 11 year-old-son wears his jersey.

    Yeah, I noticed that too. ESPNU interviewed the youtube guy and his son. I was proud to see them there.

    Default Bcs national championship pre-game thread!!!!

    I am currently watching last years game on ESPN Classic .. That time, I was watching the game in Birmingham, screaming my head off with about a hundred other fans. It was one of the most fun experiences of my life!

    It's great to be able to sit down and watch it, just me this time. Alabama just struck first with a field goal .. I remember being so nervous only being up 3 points! Anyone else watching?

    Thanks to mrchase!

    I'm keeping track of it in a sense.

    We'll kick another field goal here in the next few minutes to go up 9-0.

    I knew Brent Musberger was going to say, "Here we go again, Bama kicks another field goal" before going to that commercial break.

    Yes. I've seen it a few times.

    Just noticed this: Les Miles was the AP Coach of the Year last season .. and Brian Kelly won it this year. If all goes well, two straight Coach of the Year winners are gonna lose on the big stage

    Also, I forgot about Maze's injury!! Watching him cry on the sideline as the half began made my stomach go to knots .. He is a free agent, right?

    Bell just got a 30 yard gain .. Love it.

    Thanks to mrchase!
