Look, here’s the deal…Notre Dame eeked out victories against Purdue and Pitt. Manti Te’o has so many tackles because Notre Dame’s defensive line couldn’t stop a box turtle, even against the often meager competition they’ve been playing. On the other hand, Alabama emerged out of the top of the SEC, playing teams ranked nationally more often than not (and often in the top 10), and which has, perhaps, the best offensive line in the country.
Mark my words, this game will be a joke. Alabama could send Notre Dame a note before the game that says “We’re going to run the ball every play” and then go out and do it, and still probably win the game.
