Being exposed for the frauds they are, as are the BCS rankings. Maybe they should dig up Knute and the Gipper.

Or maybe they just had one very bad game?

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 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.

It worked though, no way that team should have been No.1 over the team that just steamrolled them.

The whole BCS system is stilled very flawed, and last night proved as much.

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.

I would wager that Alabama would have smoked any team they played last night. Notre Dame played a representative schedule and won them all, it's not their fault no other team did the same.

Tell that to Stanford, luck of the Irish? Right.

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.

This is a strange story. It's already interesting to see the rumor mongering at work, but I wonder where it will go.

I think Te'o ends up on the Raiders for some reason...

He already has proven he's a hit with the NorCal fake ladies.

Fake girlfriend is a woman named Diane O'Meara, a former high school classmate of catfisher Ronaiah Tuiasosopo. Try explaining that at the next school reunion.

Fair enough. But the possible explanations for Manti's story in this thread make Torii uncomfortable.

Hard not to still see this guy as complicit to some degree. He clearly lied and embellished quite a bit to aid the story if nothing else.

Odds on Manti making a move on Diane O' Meara? Is Manti Te'o really Manti Te'o ? Stay tuned.

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.

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.

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)
