I don't think so, they just never faced an opponent of that class, the Tide faced tougher teams throughout conference play. Notre Dame is built on hype and historic sentiment, another "independent" fluffed up schedule to make themselves look better than they are.
Or maybe they just had one very bad game?
It worked though, no way that team should have been No.1 over the team that just steamrolled them.

Wait this isn't an argument for a playoff is it? The #1 and #2 teams played, Notre Dame played a good schedule, got a problem with it either finish #2 and do what Alabama did or play them in the regular season. Nobody ever says when the Yankees get eliminated in the first round that they didn't belong in the playoffs, for that matter nobody really says that for the Twins.

I thought the BCS title game was outstanding. Georgia almost pulled it out!
Lol, so true, the actual title game should have been the rematch and probably would have been if not for ND's independent schedule. Two straight years of an all SEC championship would have sent Rick Reilly and the BIG 12 and PAC 10 people right over the edge though, despite the SEC winning the last 7 titles.

ND is such a bunch of divas.

This is a strange story. It's already interesting to see the rumor mongering at work, but I wonder where it will go.
Story of Manti Te'o girlfriend death apparently a hoax - ESPN
ND is such a bunch of divas.
I think Te'o ends up on the Raiders for some reason...

Just don't want to see the Hunter Homophobe thread as the last commented post in this forum. This should do it. Please no one else post to that stupid thread.
Fair enough. But the possible explanations for Manti's story in this thread make Torii uncomfortable.

Yet when asked if he was gay, he replied, "Far from it. Faaaar from it." His repetition of his answer, while emphasizing how absolutely NOT gay he is, has me entirely convinced. I'm sure he also happens to have a "wide stance" in the men's room.
Lady was a man... According to your story Te'o, you fell in love with a.. a man.

Come on, what star athlete in his early 20's DOESN'T have a long-term, long-distance, high-drama relationship where he literally never sees the person he "loves" face-to-face when talking to them for the entirety of the relationship? I mean, those happen all the time, right up to the point where the other person dies, and then the star athlete passes on the one final chance he would have had to EVER see this person in the flesh (for the first and only time) in order to play a game. It really could happen to anyone. (Provided they have no functional cerebral cortex)
The more stuff that comes out like this the more I'm convinced he knew all along. This just feels like poorly covering one's tracks.
